I know you're saying, " Alright already
with the maritime sparkles!". But these
little guys just turned out so much
cuter than I had pictured in my head,
I wanted to show you!
I think it's because they are so TINY!
Now I am just thinking of all the things
I can attach them to! (Very possibly
frames...I really like how they look
**A few points of fact**
I had a lot of questions on my last
glitter post, so let me offer a few tid bits.

The "fine" glitter is easy to work with
and that's why I prefer it. The "coarse"
is REALLY sharp...really sharp. I have

The medium sized ones and the babies
were A LOT of work since they have
pricklies all the way around them that
have to be scraped off with a sharp blade
and they have a very rough surface so
the paint really had to be worked in...
My eyes were crossing by the time I
finished, but I just love them...I'm
seeing them covering a tiny Christmas tree!
(And you'll be seeing that too! :)
