On the eighth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Eight Snowflakes A Swayin’
This was the easiest craft and brought me straight back to my elementary days,
let me tell ya!
A fellow Belover and dear friend of mine, Rayna, made this little Christmas miracle happen. I like to think that I’m crafty, but, to be honest, I burn myself on the glue gun, I lose the fishing wire, and I craft like a six-year-old on a time out. Yet, I love the process of crafting. I enjoy the conversation, the laughs, and the hilarious looks we swapped as we realized it turned out not even remotely close to the way Pinterest had it.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”
It was an after church trip to Hobby Lobby – but they’re closed Sundays – so Michael’s it was! There, we swooned over Christmas flower crown decor and searched the aisles for silver pipe cleaner and fishing wire. It wasn’t a grueling task but the iced coffee and lack of sleep combined made for quite the adventure and side-splitting laughter. When we came up with the way we were going to present this DIY project, it wasn’t the average “light bulb moment” or “a-ha” moment. No, we straight up busted out into a victory dance (whipping thy hair back n’ forth, 2-stepping, the sprinkler, and hands in the ayer-a-a-ayer).
Needless to say, it was an epic mini dance party! As we made these little darling snowflakes I realized the Lord has blessed me with this friend for eight months now…..eight snowflakes a swayin’…..mmm, so lovely.
This holiday season I encourage you dear friends, to pick up a craft, grab a friend, or few, and make memories. As we celebrate this Christmas season let us leave little reminders of what this season is all about. Much like snowflakes, may our acts of kindness be beautiful, sparkling, glistening, and may they cover the ground – white as snow. All because He washed it white as snow.

Be merry, Beloveds!
