It's Been a Long Day, Always, Ain't That Right?

Believe it or not, I have been crafting a little lately...


It all started when I made this adorable pillow for my very good friend's birthday. And duh, I wanted to keep it for myself. But didn't. Because I'm apparently stupid.

I have projects lined up in my head, if only working on them in my head equated to actually working on them. Dude. That would be so sweet.

And I've found a new obsession...


Glitter.

Oh. My. God. The glitter. I'm running around trying to find more things that need glitter applied. Want something glittered? Send it to me, I'll get it done real quick.

ooohhh, i dig the pillow and the glitter bones rock! nice colors.

my mother-in-law went nuts with glitter one year, christmas stuff. she gave me this huge box of glittered stuff - the plastic animals (reindeer, etc.) were pretty cool. they do shed like crazy tho.

Oh, you've been reading the Martha halloween issue, haven't you?

And lucky Michelle. Except we shoud have discussed, because our pillows totally clash. Oh well. She's got more than one room in the house. :)

Reach down your hand in your pocket ...Pull out some hope for me ... (as if I wouldn't know who sung that !! Being the Matchbox 20 fanatic that I am!)
Pillow looks great!! And glitter skulls and bones? How in the world?? If I sent you me, would you glitter me? I would love to sparkle!

Cute pillow.

Did you see Martha Stewart's April Fools Day show a year or so ago when they glittered everything, including furniture? I can see you doing that now. LOL

Angelina said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the pillow. *hint hint* LOL. And glitter - momma don't you know glitter is every moms nemesis?!? I HATE it. I find it YEARS after we last used the shit.

Love the colors of these glitters you're using. What's the the brand and colors you bought? Do you mind sharing? Thanks.

Loving the pillow! The oranges looks so nice together. Something about patchwork really makes me happy.

I saw that kit and was wondering about it. The colors of glitter look really nice.

dude, my pillow is awesome and I love it lots and lots. Don't worry, you will get something equally awesome for your birthday....now I just need to figure out what that will be.

oilclothjunkie said...

oh, and you're not stupid but generous.

now, I am officially done kissing your ass. :P

Love the glitter, but do have to agree with others about its tendency to wander off and attach itself to other things my house. Where'd you find such yummy colors? Those don't look like the standard variety.

Also, project planning in your head totally counts as work. And it's so much easier to tidy up...

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh! I bought the glitter, bought the magazine I saw it in, haven't had time to get the bones, skulls, etc NOR have I had time to do it. How soon did you say you could whip them out?

erin said...
