Glitter Makes My Day!

I'm mesmerized by glitter!  I lose my train of thought, and get lost in the shimmery, shiny, glinty, luster of sparkle.  A few days ago I made this bulletin board for speech.


It's hard to tell by the picture, but the snowflakes are covered with iridescent glitter!  It was a wonderful day for me...not so much for the guy who vacuums the room.  Each snowflake represents a speech student.   
We are a blizzard.

ok...the glitter on your snowflakes is great
but you know what REALLY glitters
IS YOU

I know how wonderful it must have been to be with Tauna and GIGi.
I remember so well when both of you came to my sons' funeral

what a humbling experience to realize that there are people out there...who you haven't even met yet...who care and love you
I'll never forget it Connie

Connie said...

Wendy,
You just made me cry.

Jenny said...

Great Bulletin board.... I put on up on Friday. Just not as special as yours. I love Wendy's comment and whole heartedly agree with her. Your a what really glitters.

I thought you were totally rockin' the glitter the other day! I am pretty sure there is no one more sparkly than you.

It was such a treat to sit by you the other day and talk like OLD friends. You are such a treasure.

Ya, Wendy, way to make me cry!
You guys are the best kind of "blisters" (blog sisters)

I have a small glitter addiction myself. Those snowflakes are a great idea. Mimi

Doran & Jody said...

Oh for fun and cute is this board.

Grams said...

I also love glitter. As a matter of fact, my favorite chair in the living room still has green glitter left from one of my Christmas project. My husband HATES glitter. You would think he did the vacuuming. As long as I vacuum ... I will glitter.

Nicole Weber said...

Connie- that's what MY speech bulletin board says right now! I liked my Christmas one, too- gingerbread men with each of my kids' names on it and the phrase "Catch Us Using our Good Speech!"

Joanie said...

I am so happy that you are still able to show your mighty talents with Glitter. You really are the "Glitter Queen". Your wall looks great. Now I will have to watch to see what you do for February.

Grams said...

Connie, Thanks so much for telling me about your husband's ablation. Patrick's recovery seems a little slower and more painful this time. Your husband's recovery has given me encouragement and hope that all will turn our okay this morning. Thanks.

Connie~ you really do Shine!

Cute bulletin board!
I like the look of glitter. The mess...not so much! :)

Kerin said...

Such a fun and uplifting bulletin board!
I can tell by the comments left on your blog, that everyone really appreciates your friendship.
Me too :)
And, yes.. I will be 10 miles closer to S.F :)

Teachinfourth said...

All of my boards are pretty boring in comparison...good for you for going all out, sparkle queen!

karen said...

I really like that board - your speech kids must totally love you! After reading everyone's comments I'm hoping even more we can meet in April. I don't want to pass up the opportunity!

Glitter is awesome! It makes everything pretty, even the vacuum for a couple of weeks!

Valerie said...

Fun! I bet the kids love it and it makes you smile every time you see it.

gigi said...

I am glad I stopped by today to see a couple of my favorite 'blisters! I was crying while catching up on your blog I read about sweet Ella and her mommy and daddy...then came here and Wendy turned the tears full force.
Blogging Friendships are truly felt in he heart.
You are a glittering lady with all the bright sunshine and love you spread so effortlessly.
I wish my little 2 year old grandson Jake had you for his speech teacher:) Your students are soo lucky!!!

Yvonne said...

Very cute. I love glitter, too.

And I agree with everyone who talks about you sparkling--I think that's a PERFECT description of you.

Ann Marie said...

Everything is better with glitter.
Well.. almost everything. :)

Kazzy said...

Nice work, Miss C! You are a sparkly person. :)

I came by to say thank you for the great comment you left on my last post and how I loved the idea that the sales people have a recliner out back and stopped and thought 'oooooh glitter'. I love all sparkly shiny things, it must be the magpie in me. Then I read all the wonderful heartfelt comments above. You are one special lady to have all these people write these comments...so I decided that the glitter is very appropriate - shiny and lovely like yourself.
Keep shining!
Carol

Tracy said...

Well Connie, I must say Wendy's comment is dead on!! Truthfully, I despise glitter!! REALLY!! However, your bulletin board is sparkly and clever, just like you!! If all glitter was like you, I think I just might like it!!

Amy said...

That is one awesome bulletin board! Did you cut those snow flakes out with a Cricut? I'm guessing you were covered with glitter when you were done. At least I am when I use it. One time I found glitter on my dog 3 days after my project.

Nana said...

One of my motto's is "Glitter is my passion." I knew we were soul sisters!

Cherie said...

You are my kinda woman! I absolutely LOVE Glitter too, and fringe - ha ha. Don't ask me what one has to do with the other but both are definately cool.

I bet the kids LOVE this board!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Great board. I glad you shared it with us.
So appreciate your kind comment about my Kaci's pretty mermaind and my brothers. I just wanted it to be a good picture of all of us but thats ok we were all together for a change
Love
Maggie

Cheeseboy said...

As a dude first grade teacher, my wife always makes fun of me for coming home, covered in glitter.

Valerie said...

As long as someone else is dealing with the glitter, I love it too. I don't love it in my house.... :)
