Getting Ready for Christmas

It seems rather early to start thinking about Christmas, but this year I'm going to create more homemade decorations and make gifts for others.

This is one of the stars that I thought would look pretty in the window during the holiday season. I'm also selling it in my Etsy shop along with some other red, green, and white window stars.

I was inspired to start making these stars after seeing them at a local Waldorf school. They brightened the windows and seemed to make the school so cheerful and welcoming.

Since I homeschool my daughters, I want to create a similar environment for them at home - one that is nurturing, inspiring, and filled with happiness.

The window stars are things they enjoy looking at, and are excited about - especially when I try a new pattern or use different colors.

This star will have to wait a couple of months before it goes back up on the window. It will join other red, green, and white stars this year on the windows...and hopefully be one of the things that provide the girls with good memories of a beautiful Christmas.
