ode to glitter. and office supplies.

morning, chickens!

i'm up on the Paper Issues blog today and yes, i do believe something may have exploded in my craft studio.  this turned into something much bigger than i'd originally planned, and it just kept growing, and they kept MULTIPLYING...

i have a thing for orange, as you may have already surmised.  and i have always obsessed over office supplies, too.  staplers, liquid paper, pens that write smooth like buttah, and paper clips.  but OH. MY. GOOMIE.  put them together, and gimme orange office supplies?  TROUBLE!

honestly, there is just no describing my "thing" for them.  those little orange coated paper clips are the highlight of my workday, the center of attention at my desk, and deeply cherished little beauties.

the glitter?  yeah, there are some serious glittery bits here.  :)

painstakingly and with lots of love, each itty bitty star and sequin glued down by hand with one dab at a time.  and OH it was fun!  obviously inspired by music (hello, David Bowie!), and using a bunch of fabulosity from the Paper Issues shop:

Simple Stories journaling cards (from the SN@P! DIY line), Studio Calico paper, Amy Tangerine alphas like these, Doodlebug vellum and, natch, Thickers similar to the ones here...

i added this project to the May 11th Link Party at Paper Issues - "Let's Get this Par-ty Star-ted and Party Heart-y!"...  there's a glam glittery party going on here, with lots of stars - and orange paper clips are cause for celebration!  :)
