DIY German Glass Glitter Silhouette Nativity

Silhouette Nativity Straight On1

Hymns and Verses

One of the most wonderful experiences of the season for us, is being able to sit back to see Meyer Imports Glitter projects pop up all over the internet as all the glitter we shipped "last month" turns into this month delightful creations.

We feel is our job to find the "best of the best" and catalog them, present them and save them for future reference (see our Projects and Tutorial section).

And today we are so very happy to present a wonderful Nativity scene that is a prefect way to start the Christmas week.

Our friends at Hymns and Verses have not only shared their design, but all the templates and details on how to create this project yourself! Talk about the season of sharing! Thanks so much for sharing this will all of us and all my customers around the world!

Sold over a ton of German Glass Glitter this Season. Where did it go?

Ornaments-sheet music title.jpgAll things Beautiful

We literally shipped tons (pallets full) of German Glass Glitter this season and I have been tracking where it went and where it was used. Lucky for me, so many of my customers are bloggers, and not only bloggers, but great photographers and writers as well.

So, it is easy to find a huge number of great projects that are using Meyer Imports glitters. This is just one of them, but wow what a great idea.

On the blog "All Things Beautiful" a simple but very beautiful project that (for the first time that I have seen) is using Sheet Music as a base for printed images. Now, this is a great idea and worth the trip over to the posting.

This is just one of the many blog  / projects that I will be cataloging over the next few weeks, Thanks to all for creating so many beautiful pieces with our Glitters. And, we always appreciate the shout out when you name us as your source for the Best in German Glitters!

So I typed “Glittery Fall” into Google, and this is what I found. Homerun!

Sometimes, things just work out. I woke up this morning and thought, "you know, fall is here, I should do a post on something Glittery for fall" A quick Google search and "boom" just what I needed!

Introducing PETOP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Pumpkins)

Images (15)Each year thousands and thousands of Pumpkins are slaughtered for the cruelest of all holidays, Halloween. 

This year we are asking everyone to join PETOP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Pumpkins) and to not carve, mutilate and destroy your Pumpkins, but rather to encase them in the jewel-like Glitters that your Pumpkins crave!
