Christmas Star

I'm sorry I don't remember who's blog this was on but after seeing it, I knew I wanted to make one, too. I traced a star pattern on cardboard and started rolling sheet music. I glued the longest ones at the five points and went from there, following the pattern. From the quirky placed 'joy' to its simplicity, it's a keeper for Christmas!
Due to the kitchen reno, my Christmas decorating is going to very minimal for now. If all goes as planned, I'll be able to do lots the week of Christmas...if I do, it'll stay up all January!

But the star of the week end was this little one!
{our seventeenth grandchild}
Sweet little Kyra, born Saturday!
Thank you all for the congratulations and sweet words of blessing. I loved reading everyone, both here and on face book!

I love the star, it's different from the usual sheet music wreaths that have been around.
But you're right, Kyra is the perfect star.
Congratulations on your little blessing,
she is absolutely gorgeous!

Blessings,
Irma
