Ellen! I LOVE you. But you’ve shattered my heart in a million tiny (sparkly pieces) again TODAY! Oh, the heartache!
Remember the last time I wrote about this? I prayed and prayed maybe somehow you read my note (I only plastered it all over your web site, sent it to your producers, a bulletin to my 10,000 MySpace friends!!). But I guess you missed it.
Please do not hate ALL glitter! I do believe it is “loose” glitter you have issues with. But there are all kinds of “safe sparkle” alternatives, as I mentioned before in my previous letter. Now you are trying throw the glitter Haterade all over Hillary?
Here is my post again of safe sparkle glitter!
I know you will probably never see this, but I want to help you find the right glitter for your personality!! And then you can share it on your show next holiday season so when people send you cards they will know what kind of glitter to use that will be still be sparkly, without the trouble.
Water-based brush on glitter: This comes in a bottle, in liquid form and you simply brush it on over any surface. It dries, and the glitter stays in place, no stray flecks anyway! May-jah sparkle!
Squeeze on glitter: This is concentrated glitter that comes also in a thick creamy gel in all different colors. You squeeze it on and when it dries, it looks like it is loose glitter, but doesn’t shed.
Spray-on glitter: This comes in a bottle or can and you spray where you want it. And it sticks! No muss, no fuss!
Glitter paint: This is paint that has glitter in it, again, it dries, looks brilliant and you don’t have to get it on your fingers!
Glitter fabric: My favorite is red glittered vinyl. Like the kind used on retro barstools. You just cut and sew and go!
There are gobs more, but these are just a start. I think if more anti-glitter people were educated on this topic and all it’s varieites, the world would be a happier place!Let’s all practice safe sparkle, let’s stop the hate, the misunderstandings, and come to love all things that sparkle and shine.
Love you, Ellen!
