Okay, this star was actually two days late (but I dated it back because of other stars having been made since, so that would be confusing, and the original photo being taken on the 3rd, so that's correct).
That night, I had a wonderful barbecue party with some friends and I took a very blurry picture of the last remains of glowing charcoal in the grill. I somehow liked the look of it so I incorporated it into a star:
Quite simple - again - but this time I'm actually happy with the result. :)
