I agree-my favorite ornaments on my parents' tree are still some we made when we were kids!

You've inspired me to use the tubes of glitter glue left over from B's b-day party when we made 8X8 scrapbook pages and decorated goody bags. Glitter glue is a great alternative for glitterphobes. That would not include me, I love a good mess (I just never seem to get it all cleaned up!).

Oh, yes! I'd forgotten about glitter glue. I bet it would work wonderfully for the snowflakes. T. also made a snow angel (she used two snowflakes for wings) and used gold glitter for the wings.

We used to make those every year as kids -- we'd fold the paper and then trim it down before cutting so that each snowflake had eight sides. But we never had glitter and we taped them onto windows and doors. They look so lovely and sparkly dangling like that!

I think the snowflakes are some of my favorite decorations!
