The reason for the season!

As we come to the middle of this Holiday Season, I think it does all of good to reflect upon the reason  this time of year is so special.  It's not the presents, it's not the food, it's not the time spent with loved ones.

Yes, its true, there would be no Happy Holidays without sparkles!

Ok before you go and tell me how irreverent you think  I am, consider this:  Every year the world spends about 1.7 trillion dollars on wars and military spending. That is almost $250 per every person in this world. If they spent half of that on glitter, the world would be so sparkly and glamorous that there would be no need for war  or violence. I'm not making this shit up.   Have you ever tried to kill someone with $125 worth of glitter?  I rest my case.

 One of my favorite things about  Christmas  is decorating the tree.  I like my tree to look like a holiday drag queen, all sparkly and over the top. It is  strange that I made such a sweet diminutive ornament.  I seriously don't know where that came from, not  a speck of glitter insight !

I used my blue bird bead and men twig bead. I made a birds nest out  of angelina fiber and added a couple of sparkly glass beads to make a birds nest ornament.

Tradition has it that finding a birds nest in your  Christmas tree is good luck.  I am pretty sure that refers to a real live Christmas tree, not the artificial kind you store in the attic.
