First of all, I did not forget yesterday. Stay tuned for next Thursday and I'll come back to it.
Second, I was so excited when I read he prompt.
I was thrilled because I knew what had been hiding in my craft drawer for ages, with me not knowing what to do with it.
You see it poking out there? I've had this 3D wood star for ages.
Gave myself a few guidelines and got out my metallic markers and played around. It's not quite as bright as I was hoping, but it brings a smile to my face.

I'm still playing catch up, but I thought it was time to continue forward.
Today is Administrative Assstant's Day and I once again attended a church administrative assistant appreciation luncheon. It's held on the this day each year. The picture above was on the program for the event. Since I'm a compulsive doodler, I thought I'd at lest be constructive and knock out my prompt while I was at it.
And I got a yummy lunch
I won a door prize
I feel very appreciated now.

This one was almost too easy. What a good month to have a theme.
Although please note that even though it was easy, I'm still a day behind. I spent way too much time trying to find some rubber rats I've held on to since high school. But finding anything in my keepsake trunk proved more than I was willing to do.

I'm actually reading a book right now, so at least that part was easy.
A while back my oldest had a family reading challenge project where the parent picked the book and you read it together. We picked the Little House series. This is a scene in the fourth book when they've just built a new house and Laura talks about all the stars.
Man am I glad I found my metallic markers, because they look so awesome on black construction paper!

Had to deviate from the prompt a bit because I just did a whole closet clean out of clothes that don't fit.
But I did remember some fabric I've had around, one of which I've used previously.
So I thought I'd try this fabric star tying I'd seen on Pinterest. Let's just say it didn't work.
So I settled for something easier. And I'm okay with that.
Days are all mixed up, but I'll get them all in here. Just not in the right order. At least this one doesn't need an explanation either.
Although this wasn't my first plan. I tried to catch a couple of potato bugs and get their picture on the star, but I guess my fingers are officially too chubby to do that.

Not a lot to say about this one. I did just what the prompt said.
I even got to raid my husband's workspace for a change. He wouldn't let me make anything permanent, though. I wanted to fit pieces together and make an ornament or something. Oh well...

I felt good about this one. Even though I wondered how to tie in my theme.
I remembered some Christmas stationery in my supply drawer. Stars all around the border. Done!
I wrote a lot more than I expected to, which was pretty therapeutic. I'm going to collect the bonus by giving this to my oldest daughter, who is 9. We'll see if she gets anything out of it.
