The other day I was at the mall and happened to notice some sale signs
at the only real crafts store we have in (southern) Sweden - Panduro.
Unfortunately their sale was pretty lame, but I did find some
beautiful sheets of paper and beads on a string.
Not knowing exactly what to actually make with these treasures,
I started googling around and found this paper wreath tutorial.
I love how pretty and sophisticated these simple stars look!
Life has been pretty sucky around here lately, so on a more personal
and emotional level, I was drawn to making something comforting.
I decided on hanging shooting stars on our canopy bed, for luck.
Cutting out stars while semi-watching Buffy turned out to be very meditative,
and the muted colors went perfectly with the color scheme in our bedroom.
Last night I lay in bed watching them twirl, hoping for better days to come soon.
At some point I might add some glitter or some beads to them,
but for now I am enjoying them as they are.
(Though Cinnamon man hits his head on them constantly,
and already knocked down a star putting new sheets on the bed...)
