Paper star...

This pretty paper star was given to me recently by a dear, lovely person.  Isn't it beautiful!  Imagine the patience needed to create this!  This friend of mine is fantastically artistic -- she's talented in so many ways (this just nicks the surface).  And she shares of herself so graciously and generously.  One of her many gifts is working with young children -- it's magical to see her interact with little ones!  This friend inspires me to live more authentically and creatively as well as with courage and caring.  You'd be hard-pressed to find a kinder soul!

I've been trying to capture the star for many days now.  It was never quite right.  And, then, yesterday an abundant rain poured in sheets just bursting upon my window.  The lighting was perfect and I just love how the star looks with the pouring rain as a backdrop (no pun intended!).
