Instagram Inspiration.

glitter17Looking at this photograph from @scrapbooknerd makes me want to get more glitter, because you can never have too much glitter, or at least I can’t. I believe one of the most tragic parts of growing up is learning that it is not always appropriate to be sparkly. The only thing that could possibly be better than glitter in my book is edible glitter from @bedazzlemybonbons. I think they are based in Florida, but something tells me they could make a whole lot of money in the West (I am sure Las Vegas and LA would provide plenty of demand for sparkling, jewel-toned sweets).

Almost as good as cookies.

wpid-20141108_002614.jpgI am getting ready to work on phase two of my art collaboration project from yesterday’s post: color. I welcome the challenge of this phase because I have my ideas for color, but I want to be respectful of the texture elements. I mean, what is the point of creating texture if it’s going to be completely destroyed by color? That’s not a collaboration, well at least not to me. Meanwhile, I’m putting things together so I can knock out these holiday crafts (and photographs) in the next two weeks. I am going to be working on a lot of autumn leaves for the Thanksgiving projects and some of everything for Christmas (stamps, die cuts, Copic Markers, and tons of embellishments, because, hey, what is the point of making Christmas cards without stuff that sparkles?).
