Martha Gets Her Glitter On!

OK...I know you are sick of starfish & shells,
but that's not what this post is really about...
the mollusks are merely models.
I wanted to show you these colors!

I wanted to make Kae a few more blue touches
to add to this year's version of her BLUE ROOM
so I bought a set of Martha Stewart's glitter and
as we know, I am not a truly blue person, but
SHAZAAAAM! These make my little heart go
pitter patter!

And in direct sunlight...

...it's a whole other magical thing!

I have to say, I ADORE Martha's glitter!!!
It's so sparkly...not like German glass glitter...
it's a different yet really marvy sparkle...
and it's comes in a gazillion colors (really!
I counted!) it's easy to find and not very
expensive. It's so light & fluffy too! I don't
know why that is or how she does it, but it's
very easy to work with!
OK, I'm done gushing! (go buy some!)

Speaking of blue and people who are nuts!
Have you heard about the give away @
Look at this fabulously generous amazingness!

Karyn is giving away this ENTIRE Limoges vanity
set!!!!!!!! I know, I know...just hurry and enter
before she changes her mind!!!! And tell her I
sent you to check on her to see if she was feverish!
Good Luck!!!!!
