Happy New Year!

See you later, 2015!

I’m quite excited to ring in a new year! I’m hoping this year will be filled with glitter and glam and flowers and balloons!

And maybe a trip (or several), a bed, and lots of laughs, too!

As with many years past, I’m aiming for happiness, good health, and lots of reasons to cheer in 2016! And I wish the same for all of you!

Happy New Year!

Glowy night

I came across a few fun things for fall over at our fave paper peeps, Paper Source. Is it too early to think about Halloween? Maybe it is.

Well, in that case, how about this¬†fun glow-in-the-dark glitter? It’s probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in crafts in a while, but, then again, I’m not often searching for crafty how-tos (I remember getting very excited when I found out about pinking scissors). It comes as little surprise that the ghostly glitter is made by¬†the creative genius that is¬†Martha¬†and her design team.¬†

Glow-in-the-dark glitter, $15.95 at Paper Source

 

I would use¬†the glow-in-the-dark glitter¬†on my face and body for party play (well now!) but I suppose it’s really meant for paper crafts and other projects.

Since it’s a¬†grainy, powdery texture, you’ll need¬†glue¬†or¬†stamp ink to affix it to your creations.¬†I think it would be a lovely coating to a¬†birch tree branch display indoors or out, or glued to pinecone tips for a table centrepiece this fall. Of course, it would easily light up any old tired mask or costume for a Halloween surprise.

Any thoughts as to how you would use it?
