Glitter, Glue & Time

Yesterday morning I started a very messy project, wearing one of Chris's sweaters.  Surely when he realizes that his Billabong sweater is covered in red sparkles, he will be overjoyed.  Mwaha.

These glittered stars inspiration come from reading A Beautiful Mess. For whatever reason I can't find the post Elsie did on the artist who made the awesome star tiara that she is wearing.  The post showed other hair accessories which are all drool worthy. 

Please excuse me, as I'm hiding behind the iPhone in the following photographs.
Being grungy + acne + extreme tiredness + florescent lights = horrible self pictures. 
My main query is why did the old owners put florescent lights in the vanity?  That's just cruel and unusual.

The season of glitter is coming.

{Two Star Headband}

There is a third star waiting to be put on... but I ran out of glue sticks.  Right now I'm kind of liking the two stars.  If there's any Beauties out there who has an opinion: Should it be two or three glittery stars on the headband?  One day I will do a smaller version with white or silver, so that I can wear it to work.

 Awe, Jake is my special little helper.  Technically he's a big cat, but he will always be my little one.

Forgot to Mention:  The reason I made these star hair accessories is because as much as I would love to use my VISA to order my own star tiara...  it's not allowed at this time *pout*.  Bills and paying off credit before the season ends for Chris is priority #1.  Plus with the holidays coming... I have to hold off on all my purchasing urges,  *again, pout*.  So I must get creative with what I have: a bottle of red sparkles, hot glue gun & glue sticks, old hand bands, bobby pins, foam sheets and weekend time.

Odd numbers always look best. It's he first thing you learn in cake decorating. So, in my "professiona;" opinion, add the other one. I have flower clip i want to make, but I dont even want to spend the money on the frabic for it. Jake is hilirous!
