A glitter bomb went off in my studio!!!

 I've been working like a crazy person trying to juggle work, husband,  housework, garden maintenance and studio time. As a result... the typical cleaning that happens between projects is NOT happening. It looks like a tinsel and glitter bomb went off in there!!!!

Here are just a few of the ornaments I've been making for  my tree....




 Its finally getting to the place were I want it to be. Every year I seem to run out of steam and never seem to make all the things I want to. Now of course I've discovered Pinterest and the overwhelming amount of ideas is just adding more pressure!!! LOL!!!

I hope you are all having fun creating for your holiday!!!

I just discovered Pinterest, too. It seems I spend more time looking at ideas then actually doing the crafts!

I love these ornaments, they are adorable. your desk has "bling" action going on.

Oh Karen they're absolutely Lovely... and if a room must look as if a bomb went off in it, then a Glitter Bomb is perfect for the Holidays, sprinkling Faeiry Dust over everything to give it that sparkle that we adore! Hummmm... perhaps you've Inspired me on how to make this mess look Enchanting if I go about tossing Glitter all over the top of it?!?!??? I've got The Man on Child Care Duty while I do Seasonal Work from 10-7 and the G-Kids are on a Seasonal High, he's busy watching wee ones AND Football *Winks ~ yes menfolk delusionally think they can do both ~ LOL*... so you can only imagine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I understand completely. I have my own private "idea" book of photos online that I love like crafts or home decor. I am beginning to realize that I may have to wait until I retire to start to make any of these things!!

Love your ornaments!! They are stunning!!

Karen your ornaments are beautiful! So are all the other things you have been creating for the season. I LOVE your beautiful angels! The trio the Sweet Salvage was awesome.

I loved the shot of your studio in action...it looked tidy to me ;-)

Hi Karen!
Happy holidays! I giggled when I read your title about the glitter. It's everywhere in my house too and I can't get it up. The worst is having it in all the little cracks on my keyboard! No good.

Just adore your gorgeous ornies! YOU have indeed been busy.

Hugs,
Holly
