I'm aiming for a glitter free Christmas!
I know it's only November 1, but I'm thinking ahead.
I was in Hobby Lobby this week, (50% off of everything Christmas) with a stem of red ornaments in my hand. I turned around and stuck it back in the bin. It glittered like crazy, and of course, so did my hand when I got rid of it.
Every year, I am still vacuuming tiny shiny bits of glitter clear into August, that tiny shiny stuff hides, and then appears again later...
I love the sheen and shine of glitter, but it is such a mess. If there is anything glittery within 10 feet of me, it finds me. I can't tell you how many times I've looked into a mirror doing my makeup and there it is... a red or green dot of glitter on my face, stuck there like glue.
You know I always look for a lesson in things, here's my 2 cents about glitter.
All that glitters is definitely not gold...
Lots of things that are shiny and catch our eye may be better off left where we found them, before they 'attach' themselves to us... :)
