Let it snow!

When I think of weather at this time of year I always think of snow, a White Christmas! Not that we actually get many of them anymore. In fact it has been quite a while since we had a decent fall of snow here - we managed to be about the only place in Scotland last year which didn't get any snow to speak of!!! Which is a shame as I don't have many scrapping LOs with snowy scenes in them.

To make up for the lack of snow, I decided to crochet some snowflakes, as seen on Attic24 blog. Her tutorial is really good and I actually managed to follow it, as I sometimes have trouble following crochet patterns.

I might even manage to make some more and have a snowstorm!

Todays advent box contents:

Joke: What's impossible to overtake at Christmas? The three wide men!
Fact: British people first started putting decorated trees up at Christmas after Queen Victoria's husband, Albert, brought one back from Germany in 1841. Christmas trees had long been a tradition over there and German-born Albert thought it remined him of childhood Christmases.
Bible verse: Luke 1:5-7 God's plan for our lives. A year before the first Christmas, God promises Zechariah and Elizabeth that they will have a son, even though they are elderly and childless.

Love those snowflakes. They remind me of my Grandmother who crocheted and knitted up a storm! She even did lace making
