things that sparkle / ann kelle

{Each week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness. Read more about it here or here.} 

Every single day this week I ‘played’ with glitter or some other shimmery medium in one way or another. I’ve been experimenting with ways to add it to my designs. And it will also play a role in the redesign of my website/blog.  When I sat down to work on my post for today, I said a short prayer on what I should write about. I then continued designing and a bit later I was prompted to look into my blue craft boxes. And there it was . . . what I was fixated with all week and the thing that always puts a smile on my face. . . . sparkly glitter. I then sat there on the floor of my studio looking through my box and I started thinking about who created glitter. (I wanted to give him or her a hug). Well, it was down a rabbit hole from there . . . did you know they used mica flakes as glitter in ancient cave paintings? Anyhow. The glitter we’ve all known to use was actually an accidental discovery. Yep, an accident. So, this week, I’m thankful for not just glitter, but all those accidents that turn into something sparkly.
