We were in Florida last week so I missed the endless funerals and news coverage.  Which would have been too unbearable to watch anyways.

But finding small ways to help has made me feel not so sad.

The Sandy Hook PTA has asked for help creating a Winter Wonderland for the students when they return to their new school. Snowflakes must arrive by January 12, 2012.  And can be sent to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514.

Easy, I can do that.

I made both Star Wars Snowflakes and ballerina snowflakes.

The ballerina snowflakes template can be found here.  These snowflakes are so simple even your kids can help you make them.

Now the Star Wars snowflakes were a bit more complicated.  The site I found the patterns on says that you can cut them by hand.  But that seems a bit crazy.  So I used my Silhouette Cameo instead.  I used the trace function on the Silhouette to make them.  So easy.

I couldn’t figure out how to post the silhouette files on here, but if you’re looking for them just leave a comment and I’ll email them to you.
