With the weather finally starting to cool off, I got some blankets out from storage and saw all my little glitter bottles just begging for a card to be put into.

Glitter. Ugh. The ONLY reason that I don't sign up for the exchange......just call me the *glitter scrooge*.

LOL!!

And I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that our Elves will be willing to help again this year.

Their participation last year cut down on about 7 days of work...literally Plus it was a fun little party with them all

I left the bag of glitter from last year on the counter in the corner all year. Every time I saw it it made me smile. Bring it on! Looking forward to it.

I loved the look on my mailman's face when he realized he had a trail of glitter behind him when he gave me my mail.

Just thinking about those cards and the joy on Teslet's face as he dumped glitter all over...it's made a tough Monday a lot easier to take

A little plotter is more like it! Although it may backfire when I have to forfeit my deposit on the place I am renting due to glitter in the carpet.
