Aim for the moon, that way, even if you miss
you'll still be amongst the stars.
(W. Clement Stone)
There seems to be a theme to my crafting of late and today it was all about stars.
From a sweet little gift bag with a sparkly star ...
to even more stars for hanging using Becca's pattern.
The star theme was sparked by last night's search for the moon.
I missed the Long Night Moon on the 28th but took this photo around 11:30 p.m.
I noticed several other bright lights in the sky so did some research. Turns out that now, during the December solstice, the brightest winter stars are visible, also known as the Winter Circle.
Even more special to this time of year is Jupiter lighting up the evening sky.
I'm not sure if this was Jupiter or a star, but it was the brightest light I could see.
Was very strange how it showed up on zoom.
The new year will be ushered in quietly here.
However you spend this last day of 2012, I hope it is a good one.
