I have had these little cardboard houses stashed in my basement craft desk for years. You know how you get big ideas, and then things get busy, and then Christmas is over and it's just so over you can't even work up the gumption to finish those crafts?
Well I worked up the gumption. I painted those babies and then I covered them in snowy micro glitter, because that's how I roll. Always. Pour a little glitter on it honey.
Now the thing you have to know is this, Earl considers glitter his nemesis. He puts up with it because he loves me and, well, glitter runs through my veins. It is part of my soul. Sometimes I have glitter on my face even when I haven't been playing with it. Love me, love my glitter.
Yesterday when I had finished these, Earl came out and looked at the paint and glitter spread all over the table. He looked at the little houses. He looked at me, (and smiled)...
♥And he said, "those are so cute, I don't even mind the glitter".
And then I kissed him, and he was glittered to ♥ :>)
Happy Birthday sweetheart!
Happy Birthday sweetheart!
They are adorable! Reminds me of the expression "put a bird on it," which I am always willing to do! I'm glad that your darling loves you so much that he now enjoys the houses, too, glitter and all.ReplyDelete
Oh how I love glitter too. Loved that last paragraph. Not only was Earl's face glittered but so was his heart and every heart needs glitter!ReplyDelete
I laughed out loud when I read this. I could hear his voice in my head and it cracked me up. Craft herpes...now that is funny-and so true!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday Earl! Love you!
Oh, these are just darling! Everyone looks better with a little glitter on them! ;)ReplyDelete
Be a sweetie,
These are adorable and the glitter is that finishing touch that makes them perfect. Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog, you're a sweetie pie :)ReplyDelete
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
Your little houses are just adorable Kathy! And your story so precious! :o)ReplyDelete
Happy B'Day to Earl.ReplyDelete
Your houses turned out so cute!
And I forgot to tell you how much I like your holiday banner too, Kathy. So sweet and cheerful!
They are adorable and so is Earl. Hope he has a happy day!ReplyDelete
I just love everything about this post! Especially Earl :) xoxoReplyDelete
How sweet! (I love the houses too:)ReplyDelete
That's glitter love right there! The houses are adorable!ReplyDelete
They are so cute!! The glitter really looks like snow.ReplyDelete
Kathy, did you do your own blog design? I just love it and could really use a new look.
Those are beautiful Kathy! Earl is a sweetheart...Happy Birthday to him!ReplyDelete
I love your little houses. I haven't been 'into' glitter - until recently - and then only 'tasteful' glitter. Yours are tastefully glittered, little houses, my friend.ReplyDelete
So pretty Kathy! My daughter said she could tell it was Christmas because I have glitter all over me :)ReplyDelete
Oh I love them. I love them so much I have the same two. I have the church glittered and hanging on a tree and the little house is sitting on my desk. But I have used totally different colors of paint, I think I like yours better. I also think I should probably stop commenting on every one of your posts now because I expect your mail has blown up because of me.ReplyDelete
