An unconventional New Year's Eve...

Guess what will make viewing these photos even more fun!

Listen to Perry Como's Catch a Falling Star. (You can listen to it on YouTube here.)





My Starry Sky

Catch A Falling Star

I enjoyed an unconventional New Year's Eve last night. Initially, I felt a bit blue because part of me wished that I had grand plans for the evening. But, my plans were simply to spend time with family at home. As I began to think about the evening an idea jumped into my mind- I could make my own starry sky!

So, my sister and I dashed off to the craft store. She patiently waited as I wandered around until I found the perfect paper and ribbons. I returned home and spent a large part of the evening in my favorite sweater, a pair of overalls, and polka dot socks as I cut and constructed my own starry sky above my bed.

I remember the moment that I finished my project I thought to myself, "It's beautiful! I am so glad I spent New Year's Eve at home!"

Sometimes in life I think that I really want to spend an evening or a day in a certain way, but then plans change and (though it is nothing like my original wish) it is far better than I ever imagined.

I had an unconventional New Year's Eve, but I wouldn't trade it for all the glamorous parties in the world. It was special, it was mine, and I doubt that I will ever spend another New Year's Eve quite like this one.

May your New Year be filled with joy!



  1. Oh, so pretty. I want to find the perfect shimmery paper to put up snowflakes on my window, but now I also want to do stars at some point too.

    1. Thank you!

      That sounds like a lovely idea. Happy crafting!
