*When you make your cuts, cut into the edge with the solid fold, towards the edge with two folds. I hope that helps anyone that had problems with my crazy directions and I hope you will now have success, let me know! :) I'm not that great with directions!

There's a lot of white around here today! The snow brings back so many memories of my childhood in Saskatchewan. Like my mom or dad helping us dig into the side of 10 foot high snow banks to hollow out a fort with tunnels, slides and steps. I miss skating on our old dugout (pond) that dad would clear off for us or renting an outdoor hockey rink somewhere for a young people's social. I remember pushing around an old chair or an upside down five gallon bucket in order to learn to skate the first time as a child. Going sledding in the valley was fun on a toboggan or crazy carpet, but if you were brave enough to climb on to the tractor tire tube, you were in for a real ride. We would also pull the tractor tire tube behind a snowmobile and one person would sit backwards behind the driver as the scout (to alert the driver that someone fell off, or intentionally not alert them!) Ah the memories. I miss the crunchy sound of deep dry Saskatchewan snow. You would be amazed at the beauty of the snow covered prairies!
