I was in need of a snow material for a current project when I remembered the Blender Materials site. I hadn't been there in quite a while and I found exactly what I needed for this project. It saved me a lot of time. There's quite an impressive collection of FREE materials. I also noticed on thier home page that they have celebrated their first anniversary this month. So Congratulations and hats off to you all at Blender Materials for an outstanding job and collection.
