Do you follow SpaceWeather.com? Click on the link, and scroll down to snow flakes. I think you'd enjoy it.

I do not & geeky delights like this are always encouraged!
Thanx for the tip & I know you're keeping warm this season. ;)

Best always, from my restless hands!

Here's a real life sample of something from a teacher that had me in fits worthy of Data (when Q granted him the gift of laughter): http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/idolhands/banners/Formulaforturningnumbers.jpg

Dang! You are quick!
I barely got a list of Xmas carols out and you've already got a new set of icons for me to snatch add to my collection. I LOVE the one tiny flake on the wood. I think that's my especial favorite

I debated over wether or not to bother with this last cluster, but in the end, I couldn't resist. And I must be quick for Old St. Nick's special day is just right around the corner!

That one is pretty darn cute.

Thank you once again for offering your feedback, it's truly appreciated!

Both of these sets are really spectacular! Great work!

Thanks I really appreciate it! Lately I'm possessed by creative energy, plus...I've always had a fondness for snow.

Ay, already? You're too quick.
Well, as they are no numbers, I took the one with the broken branch (snowflake31) - nothing is perfect. Even a snowflake which is beautiful. And also, add a little "I'm different".
And the one, alone, on the wood (snowflake46). It's touching.

Thank you again for these. You're awesome. <3

Crap! No numbers!
*sighs* A little too quick it seems. Let me see if I can suck up the patience to fix that. You know, with the first batch, LJ deleted the whole dang thing and wouldn't give it back, so I had to start all over (at an ungodly hour of the morning, I might add). Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Aw, so are you. All this year that's all I've been thinking.

The icon that you used, looks quite nice on you and I'm always going to imagine it as a sweater. :)

Snowflakes! I recently saw a little explanation over them, fascinating! So I'm glad to see those two posts, and no, there aren't too many icons. I love collecting icons!! :-D
Took some icons from both sets, but it's hard to choose ;-). Great post! Thank you.

Both sets are stunning and inspirational :)

I agree about #41 being my favorite. They are all striking, but there's something about that one that makes me feel lonely but happy somehow. :)

Thank you so much for finding the time to say so!

8, 32 and 31. I was determined to break with my love of the more black and white based icons but, well, I got a little wintery blue in there and number 31 has a lovely prism like effect going on which introduces a little color to my world! Hmmmn, I may have to take more, I'm liking this theme too much. XD

These are so pretty, eyecatching, and I took a lot from both sets.

I am going to rec you.

and friend your icon journal, of course!
I may even get a few color schemes out of these.

Will credit, thank you, what a wonderful fresh idea for icons!
