When I first open my eyes from sleep, I seperate my dream thoughts from real life. Trying to make sense of things. My groggy eyes look up around my room, and reality flows in. I think about the world at large and all its happenings, as well as the world at personal levels. I think of friends, of loved ones, of people I don't know at all. Then I make little wishes...
This week, with each morning, I have craved stars and moons hanging around my room. I have envisioned them hanging from ceilings, from mirrors...
I have thought about how seeing stars when I wake up will fill me with hope and good feelings.
How each star could hold a wish.
So, I set out to make some moons and stars, and promptly decided to share them with you...
I took me a couple of days to whip these up. So I am extra excited to be sharing them with you.
All you have to do is print, cut -
"Wish with all your little heart..."
Then you can be on your way to making anything you want with them.
To get your own free printable treat, from me,
simply click the link below, and give it several seconds to open.
When you click on the link above, you will receive two pages that look like this...
Print them out on card stock, for best use, and start creating.
You can write your wish on the front, or back, or keep your wish to yourself
I made a couple of star and moon garlands for my room...
(I hot-glued my stars to ribbon to make my garlands)
I then decided I wanted to make a little star and moon mobile for my sleeping nook.
I found a round rusted metal thingamajig outside, which worked great.
I wrote my wishes on each star, and then covered both sides in craft glue and glitter.
More ideas for the base of your own mobile are -
The wire part of an old lamp shade.
Or perhaps, 4 sticks tied at the corners to form a square?
Or even, a sturdy wire, shaped in a circle to your liking?
The options are endless.
These also make fun and easy homemade gifts.
I would love to receive a wish garland, wouldn't you?
Another fun thing...
I got a wee bit carried away, and decided to make
Fairy Wands with my stars.
I just found some sticks outside, wrapped and tied ribbons to them, and hot glued a glittered star to the end.
Isn't that fun??
You can make oodles of these for a party or any ole reason.
I mean really, who doesn't need a magic wand every now and then?
I was playing with my wands, on my patch of winter rye grass outside the office (which I so enjoyed all winter), when Matty and Miles came over to see what was going on...
Matty very politely sniffed, and went on his way.
His little brother...
He really needed his very own magic wand.
Of course, what puppy doesn't?
But, when I explained to him that it wasn't for eating, he gave it back.
He has been so cute, walking around with missing front baby teeth.
Big boy teeth on their way.
So, there you have it.
Stars and Moons.
And wishes too!
With love, from me.
ps: Thank you ever so much for your Miles thoughts. He feels great!
This is a stuffed rabbit sent to Baby by Auntie C, who gave it to Matty, who gave it to Miles :)
