Don't Mind The Mess!

I don't think I actually have any readers, but just in case I do... please don't mind the messiness of the blog right now.  I'm playing around with a bunch of design stuff.

OK, let's try this:

Why all the test posts?

I'm trying to figure out how my new nRelate internal link widget works.  It seems spotty at best.

Another test post (about glitter)

This is a test post about glitter.  I love glitter.

Test concluded.

This is only a test post, but here is a link to something cool:

Too bad they don't have glitter paint....

Thus ends the test.

Who Wants to Win a Cameo??

Once again, some of my favorite bloggers are hosting Silhouette Cameo giveaways!!  You should hop over to their blogs and enter to win.  Think you'll never win?  Well, you're wrong, because it happened to me last month!!  (OK, I didn't win the Cameo, but I won the Cameo tote from I Heart Naptime and it's awesome!!)

Here are the blogs that are hosting the giveaways:

Each of these blogs also has a promo code to get a Cameo + Rhinestone Starter Kit for $269.99 = awesome deal!  They also have a $10 off deal on just the kit if you already have a Cameo.

It's super easy to enter the giveaways because they all use Rafflecopter.... except Skip to My Lou.  Silly Cindy!  :)

The Cheater's Method of Glittering

I have a glitter secret!  I love glitter?  No, that's no secret.  I know how to glitter something in 60 seconds with absolutely no sticky mess?  Yes!  That's my secret!  Want to know how?

Just run whatever you want to glitter facedown through a Xyron Create-a-Sticker, unstick the backing, and sprinkle on your glitter.  Voila!  It's the ultimate cheater's method of glittering!

Tips: (1) remember to put the object face down so you don't glitter the wrong side; (2) burnish the object really well before peeling the object off the backing to ensure the adhesive evenly coats the object and be sure to peel the object off the backing in slow motion - if you rip it off quickly you might get "holes" in your adhesive coating.

Don't have have a Xyron?  You should get one!  The best price I've found on machines and refills is on Amazon.  It's kind of an expensive set up, so I only use mine when I am feeling extra lazy.  But on those days when I just don't have the energy to mess with other adhesives, it is totally worth it. 

p.s. Xyron hosts giveaways all the time on their facebook page.  Like them if you are feeling lucky.  (I love giveaways almost as much as I love glitter!)

p.s.s.  No, Xyron is not paying me to write this post... I'm just an enthusiastic fan!
