The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

- How to Make a Paper Snowflake - DOTM July

You will need:
One sheet of construction/copy paper, white or blue.
A pair of scissors.
A ruler.
An electronic device to read this on.
1. Find a piece of blue or white copy paper (place it in vertical rectangle then fold it in half. )

2. Sketch three out of the six points your snowflake will have using a ruler on the fold- try your best to make the angles even, and remember that since they are connected to the fold the angles on the left of point one and right of point three will be twice as big. Cut the shape out.

3. Unfold it and look at the base of your snowflake. This is when you do a little trimming if the sides look unequally proportioned.

4. Refold it on the previously created fold.
5. Fold it again, symmetrically.
6. Start cutting little triangles, circles, etc in the shape you now have. Be careful not to chop it in half!

7. Unfold it completely- wha la! You have a lacy-looking paper snowflake.
NOTE: Is anyone thinking in the politest possible way, "It's July, strange person. So why snowflakes?"
If I wanted to I could remind you that it's cold in the Arctic- Or on a mountaintop somewhere.
You could make this an excuse to use the scissors, to decorate for something, or make a card with.
Maybe you should just remember this in four months.
I could say that this is my post and you have no alternative. >:D *evil laugh*
