snow flakes outside, on my hand warmers, and on my nails

As I am writing this post I think our high outside is like 6 degrees.... brrrrrrr! We are having a few snow flurries as well but not just outside, they have manages to make it onto my nails and my hand warmers too! 
Snow flakes are very pretty so I decided to add a few onto my crochet in the form of these adorable buttons I found. Then, I used the nail stamps from Bundle Monster to create matching nails.... how fun is that!

For the fingerless mitts, I used a ridged pattern I created. Here again, if I can find the notes for the pattern I may make it available in the future

A cute little hat and scarf

I was asked to make a little hat and scarf for a 4 year old girl and this is what I came up with.  I am loving the little hat :) I got the pattern here
and I just added a little color in. I did not use a pattern for the scarf nor did I write down what I did (I really need to get better at that).  I have a bad habit of scribbling down a pattern as I go, forgetting where I put it, and have even accidentally threw great patterns I created away thinking they were just doodles... oops : /
