Sparkle on! An easy DIY...

It's been a cray cray week around here. (I really wish people would stop saying cray cray... myself, included.)
We are drowning... no, SWIMMING in jewelry orders. (I don't want to sound ungrateful. I'm not! I'm absolutely thrilled. But it's a big big big job. cray cray Big.)

We've had unexpected visitors.
A mancold.
A kidney infection.
A dead kitten.
A naughty basset hound.
Projectile vomit.

Life ain't always beautiful. As we all know!
But it's a beautiful ride...

And I do love to find beauty in things. Especially sparkles.

So here's a little DIY that you can do by yourself, with your class, or your kids.
Get pinecones.
Get glitter.
Boom. genius! I know.

You can do this 2 ways. 1) Use glitter glue.(less messy) or 2) Use school glue, a little paintbrush, and sprinkle glitter on.

Do the tips of your pinecones, gather them in a pretty dish and sparkle on!

Do you have your Christmas decorations up yet?

You and your cray-cray make me laugh!
I am a total grinch this Christmas. We are going out of town, and I don't want to do a single thing. Except, of course, for the nativity that is still on the piano from last year. And the wreath next to the front door from last year.
Oh my goodness. Our neighbors love us.
