Project Sparkly

The last trip to the dollar store resulted in a glitter shaker set.  What better way to spend some time with a 4-year-old playdate than to make some sparkle-laden paper plate puppets?!?  The results were stunning:

However, the cleanup was is awful.  Sparkles are e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.

The floor, the sofa, the counter, the keyboard, my eye sockets, and probably all over our dinner tonight but who can say. I love the creative, let the kids explore and experiment projects, but the cleanup* kills me.

*The clean up from yesterday's impromptu 15-minute project took at least 30 minutes to clean up and still resulted in some warped IKEA floorboards.  And the floor still feels funky underfoot. I feel we will be finding sparkles for a few weeks.  Good thing the kitchen is going to be demolished in a few days.

This is what your life is like when you are a burlesque dancer. This afternoon of fun will probably leave you still finding glitter in 2 years. I think its awesome.

A crafter wiser than me once said, "glitter is the herpes of the craft world". You will find it *everywhere*
