How to Cut a Snowflake

1. Cut a circle from a square.
2. Make 6 evenly spaced cuts around the circle. Don't cut all the way to the center.
3. Between the long splices, cut little v's. (Image 4)
4. Now cut an entire branch out. I work down one side and then the other. (Image 5)
5. Work around the circle cutting out flakes.

Snowed In

I'm working from home today due to snow and ice. Our office manager lives only a few miles away and came in at a roaring 5 mph. The other editor Zach got stuck near Portland last night and is currently slowly making his way south. We're Oregonians. We're marksman when it comes to rain gear. We shut down at the slightest threat of snow.

I can't edit (no editing equipment in my apartment) so I'm continuing to work on chapter art for the Christmas craft tutorials. Here's a third one.

Chapter Break Art 2

OK so "ornament" needs some centering but I think we're on the right track.

(Thank you Mom :)

Chapter Break Art

I will be posting some Christmas craft videos in the next few weeks. For those videos I'm designing chapter break art. This is a very (very) first draft of one. It's forcing me to push my comfort range, and it's a lot of just trying something, walking away, and then coming back to assess the design.
