Okay, if you haven't tried Plaid's Extreme Glitter YOU HAVE TO!!!

Pour it into an ornament and shake it around - let it dry and when it does - OMGoodness it is JEWEL like! I put mine in the oven so that it would dry faster (because I'm not that patient) and then the outside of the ornament is SMOOTH and ready to paint!

You can get the glitter here:

Dewberry Crafts

I saw an ornament similar to this fish one at Hobby Lobby but thought - I can make that and even cooler with the Ex. Glitter. It's so much more "sparkly" in person - the scales on the fish really shine -they are painted with the hologram ex. glitter and the seaweed is painted with peridot ex. glitter. I filled it about 3/4 the way with two different colored sequins.

A hodge podge of a post I know ~ but a post non the less!

Isn't this cake the coolest?? My friend made this for her granddaughter and I think she even surprised herself at how good it turned out!

Bet the kids were ready to eat the cake but also play with the cool toys on top of it!

Here some more pics from the Retreat that I lifted from a Jaime!

Isn't her shirt - incredible ~ she paints the most amazing roses!!

The kids had their first day of school this past week - got the bus situation all worked out thankfully and the homework has begun! We had a wonderful visit from my in-laws last weekend and they brought some amazing cantaloupes and watermelons from their garden with them so the boys had some fabulous fruit to eat for snacks after school!

Have paint and clay classes this week so will be back to share pictures with you soon!

Have a great day!

Love the art and everything you put your hand to. Marvelous. I
can't imagine that school has already started - at least it puts you on a sort of regular daytime
basis. Love your choice of music.
Love, Grandma
