Glitter-A-Go-Go

Last week, through my L.A. Church of Craft email newsletter I found that Cathy Murillo of Crafty Chica was holding a "Glitter Rally" outside the Ellen Studios at NBC. It seems Ellen has been dissing glitter on her show and Cathy wants to show her that a touch of sparkle in your life is a good thing. I figured if Cathy could fly in from Fresno, it was the least I could do to drive 10 minutes to the NBC studios in Burbank and join her. Even though it was her nap time, McKenna stayed awake and sparkled in this glittery felt hat I whipped up for her last night.

It was fun! While I was walking I met Stefanie (wearing an "I (heart) Glitter" sparkly hoodie) and we found our way to the Ellen studios. I saw Jenny and Cathy, and met Cathy the Crafty Chica in person, plus I also met my Flickr friend Erika of My Imaginary Boyfriend, Carla from Craft:, the host of Creative Juice Cathie Filian (I scored a bunch of crafty stuff at their studio sale last year), members of the L.A. Craft Mafia (I'm so joining), and lots of other cool crafty folk.

We carried glitterific signs and shouted silly chants like, "What do we want? Glitter!" and When do we want it? Now!" and "Glitter is not Litter!" among others. Some people honked. Most people looked at us like we were crazy. A cute guy from the show came out and filmed us, so we might even be on tomorrow's episode (April 9th). Look for me bouncing a sparkly headed baby around shouting my love for glitter.

The funny thing is, I can't remember the last time I even used glitter. Still, I love the crafting community (and Ellen!) and thought it would be a fun way to spend the afternoon. Viva La Glitter!
