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!

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.
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!

- 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
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!

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.
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.
They really did a good job. The tote bags were very nice! For more pics, go to Normal Girl's blog.
- Sparkle 21: Mermaid Sparkle, Copper Sparkle, Night Sparkle, and maybe a little Ocean Sparkle
- Printed pattern
- Chalk pencil
- Straight pin
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......

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.
