All That Shimmers
The world's just not as sparkly as you want it to be. We should all carry some glitter and add a little bit along the way.
~Sleep Talkin' Man
Needless to say, the above quote really appealed to my crafting (crafty?) sensibility. I often use glitter on my cards - the very fine art glitter, not the big chunky stuff (eewwww). See, the trick is, you don't want to over do it. A little glitter goes a long way. Just a dot here and there to give the work some extra shimmer, that little unexpected "eye candy." Too much is just tacky. I'm talking literal terms here, but that applies figuratively too.
It's nice to add a little light, love, and shine to the world. The same rule applies... all it takes is just a little. If we all throw a little sprinkle on the day, it'll be dazzling. No heavy labor involved.
That's it. That's my message for this last holiday hurrah for the Summer. Spread some light, keep it light.
Shine on, you crazy diamond...
Well, we all shine on,
like the moon, and the stars, and the sun,
Yeah, we all shine on,
on and on and on and on and on...
