Glitzed Berries


Glitz and glam. Ooh laa laa!
I'm really not that type of girl but every now and then it is fun to pull out some glitter! I'll be honest, the best thing I like about glitter is its ability to show up on my husband's face after he comes in all greasy from changing the oil. I think we'll be seeing a lot of pink specs show up around my house...
