we actually got a nice blanket of snow last week. we enjoyed an entire day of snowfall. snow is always such a big deal here since we hardly ever see it. last year, we got some flurries--enough to build a tiny snowman on the hood of our car--but everything melted within 2 hours. last month, the little bit we got was gone the next day, but this time, it stayed a little while. my daughter and i made these ice fish using a silicone ice tray from ikea and some powder pigments. they did not last long, but they were fun while they did. i suppose this project would be more fun in a less temperamental climate. you just never know what a carolina winter's day will hold.
