:: this year, we created an arch "sky" on our nature table and my little one will be adding a star sticker to the sky for each day. i thought it would be really magical to watch our sky fill up with stars and our woolen angel move closer to earth, with each passing day. i wonder about how my little one feels as her anticipation builds as she gets down to the last few stars.
:: here's a revealing of the advent sky. i had to go back and add some more tape, so i took a picture as i did not explain it so accurately in the comments. i started at the bottom left side and taped most of the lights going up the edge all the way to the top. then, i let the string of lights loosely fall to the bottom. i work the lights back up to the top, where i taped the top lights near the edge of the poster board again. i did that i few more times and then layered a playsilk over the top. i taped the playsilk on the back side of the poster board so the curved edge could be seen. hope that helps explain.
