Blue Intricate Snowflake Ornament

snowflake ornamentDebbie Travis Large Blue Intricate Snowflake Ornament.

I really like the design of this snowflake ornament. Snowflakes are tricky to work out in ASCII art. It’s very difficult to keep all the stems of the flake the same from top to bottom and even left to right when there are six stems meant to be identical.

I’d like to take this on as a project, but it is something which will need a lot of patience.

Snowflakes for a Vanilla Cake

The full recipe comes from the Kraft site. Vanilla Snowflake Cake. But it was made with a cake mix and instant pudding. I wasn’t interested in a cake made that way. But the snowflakes decorating it are really pretty.

It uses 6 squares of Bakers white chocolate. Directions follow:

Meanwhile, draw 3 or 4 snowflake shapes on paper, ranging in size from 1 to 3 inches in diameter. Place on tray; cover with waxed paper. Melt chocolate as directed on package; cool 5 min. Spoon into small resealable plastic bag; cut small corner off bottom of bag. Trace over snowflake patterns with chocolate, rearranging patterns as needed to make a total of 35 chocolate snowflakes. Freeze 10 min. or until chocolate is firm. Carefully transfer snowflakes to plate; refrigerate until ready to use.

What Would Buffy Do?

It’s a silly blog title. I’m not even posting about Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Sarah Michelle Geller, not really. I just keep looking at her picture on a book cover as I sit here at my nephew’s computer. He has two Buffy books on his desk.

I found this great swirling snowflake background image which I want to save. Thought this was as easy as emailing it to myself. I’m more likely to find it here versus forgetting it in my swamp of email.

I should be home again tomorrow. Almost a week of babysitting. Stretched longer cause they are supposed to be sanding the drywall in the basement and there is a lot of dust. Unless they clean up after themselves there will still be a lot of dust when I am back tomorrow but I guess the idea is that it will have settled by then.

I just want to sleep in my own bed again rather than the couch here. I want my computer too. I wonder if the milk I just bought for coffee will still be any good by the time I get back. All these little things that make a life.
