Permission To Be Very Sparkly

For a long time  I was embarrassed about how I  make everything so darn sparkly.  I have tried a number of times to 'tone it down'  and to be a little more somber.  It didn't make me very happy.  It wasn't until I put on even more sparkle that it felt right.  Complete.

I remember once I was in charge of decorations for a fundraiser event and the woman who was blowing up balloons asked me how many more would I like for her to inflate?  My answer, without hesitating, was, "about a million".  She looked at me hard trying to determine if I really meant that.  I sort of did,  I know that it wasn't realistic, still there is a big part of me that really did want a million balloons. 

A part of me that likes things to be a bit too much.  I still hadn't told her how many tiny lights I wanted strung up.  Poor girl.

This blog is dedicated to 'a little over the top',  I hope to find other artists who have taken a chance, who really would like a million balloons, please.  Thank you.
