Enid’s Snowflake Making Party : Jump Started My Holiday Cheer

Last evening while waiting for a friend (to go canvas Xmas tree stands for Greenpointers) I popped into Enids to grab a Hot Toddy.

The bar tender served me up my yummy hot beverage plus a stack of paper and scissors. It was Enid’s Annual Snowflake Making Party! As I sat there and tried my best to be artistic (and not not cut my fingers off) I couldn’t believe how perfect a situation I was in before going to interview Xmas tree salesman. If I wasn’t in the holiday spirit before, this Christmas-y overload was gonna snap me into gear.

After living in Greenpoint for almost 4 years, I am so happy I finally (randomly) made it to an Enid’s decorating party.

Yeah for bars’n’crafts!
