Hoodie Give-Away!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Seems like it is cold and snowy nearly everyplace on the map this week. You need a sweatshirt! I feel so blessed to be able to sit inside my warm kitchen and watch the snow falling outside. But, very soon, I will be out there on snow removal detail. That requires at least one sweatshirt.

No problem, since I like snow! What is better than a quiet snowfall? So pretty, so white, so clean. Such snowman potential!

This green hoodie with gorgeous gold Sparkle 21 flowers, accented with gold Sparkle gems is an adult size medium. My photo does not do it justice, the glitter is fabulous. I will give it away to a lucky winner tomorrow night. To enter this totally random drawing, leave a comment that describes what you see out your kitchen window today. Do you have snow?

Tomorrow night, don't delay!

Special Serving Bowl

Monday, February 15, 2010

No patterns or special instructions needed. This is a gorgeous glittery bowl that you can make very easily.

Select 5-6 colors of Sparkle 21. Draw concentric circles of differing sizes and colors all over your bowl. Let it dry for a couple of days before you use it. It can be washed because Sparkle 21 is permanent on plastic. Don't put it in the dishwasher or soak it in a sink of water, but you can put it in water, wash it and take it out to dry.

This would make a great gift for anyone! Even yourself. Try it!

Glitter on!

Glittering at Girl's Night In

Friday, February 5, 2010

Tonight, Imaginina and Her Boss took me with them to a local Rescue Mission. Are you noticing a trend here? It is the second time this week that Imaginina and Her Boss invited me and my glitter to a fun night with a group of women. Fun! See Her Boss's blog for more details on the evening.

We visited with a group of girls from age 6 to 60. The glitter glue craft was a hit.

They each chose three colors of glitter glue for their peace signs, and used a high tech tool to blend the colors together. They were masters of the glitter glue tie dye look! And the high tech tool? A toothpick!

Very colorful. And sparkly!

A beautiful rainbow.

Can't wait to see what Imaginina and Her Boss invite me to next!

Glitter Hoodie

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I love this hoodie so much, I want it in every color. Sparkle 21 does an excellent job of dressing up a plain sweatshirt. The design is made with three small patterns placed randomly. Easy!

You need:

  • Dark green hoodie
  • Sparkle 21: Leaf Sparkle ( I used one whole bottle for what you see here. Get an extra if you want to cover the entire front)
  • Printed patterns
  • Chalk pencil
Try this:

1. Print patterns. Trace pattern lines with chalk pencil. Turn chalk side down on sweatshirt. Rub back of paper to transfer lines to fabric. Randomly transfer three designs to cover one side of hoodie and one arm. Turn them in all directions. You can even flip them over so they face the other direction.

2. Draw over pattern lines with Leaf Sparkle. Add extra dots or lines if desired.

Feels like doodling!
Glitter on!

Imaginina, Her Boss, and the Real Moms

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

I went with my friends Imaginina and Her Boss tonight to their church. They glittered tote bags with the Moms in the Real Moms group. These Real Moms get together every other week and they have formed friendships and learned lots of things together.

These are the patterns that Imaginina and Her Boss brought for the Moms.

They had a choice of pattern, scripture verse, and colors of Sparkle 21.

They began by tracing their patterns with chalk pencil. Then they laid the patterns on the totes with the chalk side down to transfer the lines.

Then they covered the pattern lines with Sparkle 21.

They really did a good job. The tote bags were very nice! For more pics, go to Normal Girl's blog.

I love hanging out with Imaginina and Her Boss, they have fun friends.

Give a Hoot!

Here is a cute little hooty owl. Use him however you want. Glitter him once in the center of a shirt, glitter him all over a hoodie, glitter him on a notecard.... You decide.

You need:

  • Sparkle 21: Mermaid Sparkle, Copper Sparkle, Night Sparkle, and maybe a little Ocean Sparkle
  • Printed pattern
  • Chalk pencil
  • Straight pin
Try this:

1. Use copy machine to make pattern desired size. Trace pattern lines with chalk pencil. Turn chalk side down on surface. Rub the back of the paper, transferring lines.

2. Color in design as shown in photo. I used three colors for his eyes: Ocean on the outside, Mermaid inside that, and a Night center. You could easily use two.

3. Stick straight pin in Copper dot, dragging it downward to make a teardrop shape feather.

4. Print hoot under owl. Let dry.

Anyone remember these commercials from the 70s? There were several. Owls always make me sing the song.

Today, Mod Girl says:

Give a hoot, on your boot!

He would be cute on your boots......

Glitter on!


Sparkly Bridesmaid Gift

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Last week, I saw some bridesmaid gifts that were t-shirts that said, "the bridesmaid". I went right home and painted a totebag. It needed more than the words, so it got a handful of posies.

You don't need a pattern for this. Just draw on your tote with a chalk pencil and then glitter over it with Sparkle 21. Make one for each bridesmaid and for the flower girl too. I guess the groomsmen would not be interested.

You could do the same on a t-shirt if that is more your style.
Glitter on!
