sparkly kate snowflakes

Aren't these little snowflakes just adorable?  My friend Kate made these and I had to do a little bragging on her behalf because I just love them.  I've known Kate for 20+ years.  Oh the stories she could tell about me (but wouldn't dare, because I have stories too).

She's a busy working mom of three who wanted to find a way to donate her time.  I know full-well how hard that can be with little ones around.  She started making these little snowflakes and donating $2 from each sale to the Whole Kids Foundation, an organization that supports school gardens and healthier school lunch options.  That resonated with me and I immediately ordered 3.

They're so delicate and really beautiful.  I had planned to tie these on holiday gifts but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to at least keep the pewter one.  (it's my favorite)

It's Cat's favorite too.

If you're interested in a little handmade goodness of your own, please stop by Kate's Etsy shop HERE.
You might want to hurry before she realizes she's charging too little for these and raises her prices. (which you should totally do, Kate)

Thanks everyone!
Happy Tuesday!

(btw I linked your stone tutorial through ;-) !)

what a clever friend, they are ver pretty - I imagine a lot of them hanging from fishing line would be really effective in a window.

Thanks so much, everyone! :D

Karen, you're right, I do have awesome friends. Amazing, talented, giving, wonderful friends. Some of whom I've never met but feel as if I have. (like you) One of the many things I am grateful for, every single day.
