There is nothing I love more than to watch the snow fall at night. It has a way of making the world soft and quiet, not to mention beautiful. Some of you who have been subscribed to this newsletter for a while may remember this site as I have featured it before. I LOVE IT! Snow days is a site that provides me with endless hours of fun when I should be off crocheting Christmas presents or putting up my tree, or playing with my animals or getting my house cleaned.
I have already spent way too much time creating snowflakes here today. To find my flakes go to Find a Flake. Where it says name type in AMANDA @ WORLDSTART, and then click the orange search button. I’ve learned how to make more interesting flakes since last year. It should tell you how many flakes I’ve made and tell you to watch for them to fall. They will fall with green arrows by them, and then you just have to click on the flake to enlarge it.
If you’d like to make some snowflakes yourself, click Create Your Own Snow Flake. Click and Drag with your mouse to cut out your snowflake shape and click done when you’re finished. Then you will be asked to fill out your name, location (if you want) and a message. Put your e-mail address in (if you don’t want to be contacted by others on this site then uncheck the box beneath that asks if you want notified if someone replies to your flake) then click add. This is where you can send it to your friends. Or, if you don’t want to do that then just click no thanks and your flake will be added to those that are falling.
You can even see how many flakes are made per minute and how many Snow Flake Makers are on line as well as the total number of Snowflakes on the site. When I was there the Flake Count was: 1,649,018. I’m sure by the time I leave the number will be a lot higher then that as I’m making about 5 flakes every 10 minutes. I can’t help it – it’s very addictive.
In fact I did check before I left and the flake count was already at 1, 649, 220. So I know that I’m not the only one getting a kick out of this site! This has become a holiday favorite for me!
