Well technically this isn't in a cubbie ~ but it is hanging right next to one. 
I started making these star ornaments with the baby Jesus on them several years ago. This particular one is made with a paper mache' star. I painted it yellow/gold and added a few lines with a marker.  Baby Jesus is a circle of wood glued to half of a popsicle stick, wrapped in a strip of muslin, and then carefully laid on a bed of "hay" made from raffia.

I love Christmas....a lot!  But I love Jesus way more than Christmas and it's my prayer that my children and grandchildren feel the same way.  It's fun to share photos of all our Christmas decorations and I plan on doing some of that.  But first I wanted to share this ornament ~ because CHRISTmas begins with CHRIST.

I hope you all have a joy-filled weekend!

You are so right Marie...Christmas begins and ends with Christ...most assuredly. What a very sweet simple little ornament....I love it. Blessings

A wonderful share today Marie. I think far too often people tend to forget the true meaning of Christmas

I love the ornament. You are so right! Sometimes I get swept away with all the other things. It's good to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
