Bethlehem Star

When I was in middle and high school, my notebooks were often filled with doodles of stars. No real idea why …. I guess I just liked to doodle stars. One of my favorite star doodles looked something like this:

When Arturo happened to notice one of these stars in my doodles last week (stars still show up in my sketches from time to time), he told me I absolutely had to turn it into an ornament. Here’s the result:

I guess I’d lived with the sketched star for so long that I no longer thought of it as anything special, but considering how nicely the ornament turned out, I’m glad I listened to Arturo’s prompting.

    Arturo was right – it makes a nice ornament. I think it would look good in a silvery-white color also.
    Love, Mom
