Silver Quilled Star Snowflake Tree Ornament

Only a day away from the new year. Do you have any plans? I'll tell you the truth...I just want to sleep! The energy here is too exhausting. I don't know if any of you have been to Times Square for the ball drop, but it was far from fun the only time that I decided to go 6 years ago. Unless you're totally committed to listening to deafening levels of music, being without toilet breaks, cold, hungry, and crammed to stake out for hours upon hours, I would say to avoid the craziness there. Much of Manhattan is closed off to traffic and even certain train stations are closed to accommodate for the massive crowd gathering which causes even slower than normal commute times. Go figure...I wouldn't say to not try it if you are into the experience itself, but being the party pooper that I am I would strongly advise against it. :) How does your local area celebrate?

Here is a two-tier star ornament. The top layer is more of a standard layout of a flower. 16 strips of paper go into the making of this one.
