Have I Mentioned My Glitter?

Look what I got at Michael's the other day- Martha Stewart Glitter in 24 colors! Are they not gorgeous! And I had a coupon- 40% off- woo hoo!!!!! Daughter also got some pretty papers. But did I mention my fabulous new glitter collection????

I am not sure if I should actually use it, or just artfully display it on my desk and just look at it... Lately, I have been working on redesigning my pattern covers . It seems that designing and putting the quilt together is nothing compared to the time it takes to write and edit the instructions, design the cover, print them, stuff them in the bags... Quilt Market is only 4 months away!!!!! I also have another 5 day show in Lancaster, PA in April, so I've really gotta get crackin'. Here is the new package design- what do you think? Do you think maybe I should add some glitter???
Oh, we had some more good news around here yesterday. My younger daughter, who is way way way smarter than me, got a really big academic scholarship to the high school that she wants to go to. She is so happy and we are so proud. My husband mentioned last night that we have remarkable kids, and I just wonder how that happened! A miracle? A fluke? Both switched at birth? I really don't know, but we are truly blessed with these 2 girls, I just adore them.... gush gush.
OK enough gushing, gotta get to work. Have a good weekend.

Oh, and did I mention my glitter??


  1. I love that glitter! They had some Martha Stewart glitter at our Wal-Mart for Christmas. After Christmas they had it half price and I just could not justify spending money on it when I did not know what I would use it for. So I decided to wait till they reduced it some more. I wish now I had not waited because next time I went in it was all gone. :( Enjoy your glitter!
    Have a Blessed day,

  2. If the show is an open one Mrs. Rabe of Creekside Cottage and I would love to stop by and meet you.

    Congratulations to your daughter...again...but different! What a week you are having!

  3. oh...I just love glitter..looks like you got a great deal...

  4. I have that glitter too! Micheals was giving out 50% off coupons around Christmas so of course I went and bought the same one you did and LOOOOOOOOOVE it!
    Congrats to your daughter. You know they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
    Have a great weekend,

  5. Guess I should start taking pictures of my glitter - since using it causes my daughter's eyes to break out. (Her hands touch the glitter, then her hands touch her eyes ...) Your book cover is great - go with it! You are so talented.

  6. Wow! You've had a week of glitter, gushing and graphic design! (really not great at alliteration, but I'm trying!)

    Congrats to you and your family, that is wonderful news!

  7. They say you "learn something new everyday" and my thing for today was discovering Google Reader. A couple of other bloggers mentioned it and there it was right after the blogs I follow. And so when I scroll through the blogs and I see glitter, ah, my eyes sparkled and then I see it's here I am! I did not know Martha made glitter and I love glitter so I am going to have to find me some. I will be on the lookout for it when I run errands later this week. Congrats on the smart kids. Both of mine/ours were smarter than I am (but maybe not as smart as my DH) and now my grandson will be a 5th grader next year and I already know that he is smarter than me! :-)

  8. Glitter --I have more than I think I'll ever use! And I bought some of Martha Stewart's on sale at Michael's yesterday.

  9. Yes, you did mention your glitter and I would have too. I also would brag on those 2 girls too. You have every right too.

  10. I'm afraid I'd just look at the glitter! ~smile~

    I do like your cover for your quilt pattern. However did you start designing quilts?

    I have enjoyed your blog for some time now. Thank you for sharing!

  11. An award awaits you at my blog...enjoy!

  12. yay for your glitter! i have been enjoying your blog and was hoping you could help me out: i recently bought this set on ebay and just got it...but i noticed that some of the colors are actually BLENDS of 2 colors. is that the case with yours as well? the packaging was broken so i am a little suspicious about what else might've been tampered with. thanks for any help you can give me!
