Tomorrow is a Blue Moon. Blue Moon's happen when there are two full moons in a single month. Since we already had a full moon on the 1st, this will be our second. Although, to my families great dissappointment, the moon is not really blue.
The link above to wiki will tell you the original Blue Moon is the third full moon in a season with four full moons. However, two full moons in a month has taken on the title of Blue Moon as well.
Anyhow, I love the moon, this glowing orb in the sky, that lights the night. It has a draw to it, and it pulls and pushes our tides, controlling all the oceans of the world, which make up most of the planet. I don't know about you, but I think that is one pretty amazing hunk of rock orbiting the earth.
Anyhow, with the Blue Moon around the corner, inspiration struck, and I thought the moon really should be blue.
I only made a few of these. Limited Edition, just for the blue moon. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them, to honor our nightime friend, that transforms our world from dark to soft glowing wonder.
(and Happy Birthday to my Julia- who turns 8 today!!! She was a full moon baby!)
