The History of Glitter

All that glitters is well, usually glitter. At least around here.

After developing a few glitter projects for companies, I now understand why people call glitter the herpes of craft supplies. No matter how well you think you clean up after using glittler, you never fully clean up after using glitter.

What is it that makes glitter so, happy, shiny, and a pain in the tuckus to clean up from a craft room?

Wonder no more. I give you The History of Glitter!

After watching the video it looks like glitter isn't as green as I hoped. Little pieces of plastic? Bummer.

    "I now understand why people call glitter the herpes of craft supplies" no kidding, the few times I have had a jar of glitter around here, it usually falls over or on the floor or craft table making a sparkly pretty mess for me to clean
