Simply Sweet


Every mom loves to capture their child's firsts. First step, first word, first bite of solid food; the list is endless. The photo's for this project were particularly special because they capture my eldest daughter's first time playing in the snow. I wanted to create something unique for her, so I got out one of my favourite idea books,  Donna Downey's Creative Albums, and my creative juices began to flow. I decided to use some old CD's and create a altered CD album.  I really liked the way that it turned out and I will definitely make this project again.  

POEM
Falling Snow
By anonymous

See the pretty snowflakes,
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.

On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Falling all the air. 
Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.

Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!
