A Glittery Day

So, today has been a better day. Yesterday, FINALLY, I got some money in from EI. Now, I still have more paperwork for the doc to fill out, so hopefully I will get a few more weeks of money. It is just nice to be able to pay my bills and have a little left over for me. So what did I do? Buy supplies of course! But these are special; they're cool! I got the 64 pack of crayons (with the crayon sharpener), and I got glitter glue. Just opening the box of crayons took me right back to childhood; the smell is just so distinctive. So today, I played!

This is "my art" that I created with my cool crayons and glitter glue. I picked out the colours I thought were pretty, made some simple shapes, and put three (!) kinds of glue on as accents: silver, fuschia and iridescent (which is a bit hard to see). I had a lot of fun; I had a smile on my face the whole time. Yay me!

This pic shows my WIP and the progress I have made. We're in the home stretch, that's for sure. What will I do with it when I'm done? Who knows, but it will have been a good exercise in patience. It is fun and fulfilling too.

And just as a total aside, here is my dinner. A bologne, cream cheese and mustard sandwich on sunflower/flax bread and golden kiwis (X2). Yum! Doesn't it make ya hungry?
