too much sparkle

I was super psyched to find a big package of clear plastic christmas ornament balls, because while I'm happy with the way the glass ones look, I don't even want to think about shipping them, and I'd like to put ornaments that don't sell by my last show on December 3rd up online. So, yay! unbreakable!  So ... turns out the molding process results in a tiny hole in the bottom. The current process I'm using has as step 1 coating the INSIDE of the ball with spray adhesive so that I can dump glitter in to evenly coat the sides.

So, basically now my fingers are covered in glue and glitter. And also my workspace has random spots of sticky. So ... yeah.

I think I'm going to spend the rest of my day on light switch plates instead. Which involve no glitter or adhesives of any kind. I painted 27 glass cabs for jewelry over the last two days, so I'm starting to feel reasonably good on that front.

(Oh hey, shows!  I'm gonna be at Oddmall Emporium Holiday Show in Everett on the 19th and 20th, which should be a geek/weirdo/wee-ooh shopping extravaganza. And the kids can get their picture taken with Krampus!  And then I will be doing Cascade's show on December 3rd in Shoreline. I will undoubtedly flog this again closer to the events in question.)
