Time passes so fast.... it does not seem all that long ago that I was in my kitchen mixing up batches of Glimmer Mist. Trying to contain my excitement for creating more and more colors to choose from, still a problem I have today.
Today I have been jumping from Facebook to Pinterest and on to blogs checking out what is going on in the market known as the Glimmer Misting market. Weather its Glimmer Mist or one of the copies of my paints out on the market today.... people refer to it as "Glimmer Mist"! It amazes me, to this day, just how far the market has come, embracing the misting. I remember as if it was yesterday having people walk by my Scrapbook Expo booth, where I had been demoing for hours and hours. No time for bathroom breaks or food, the excitement was to high and I think I was running on pure adrenalin each day. I would get all kinds of responses Ooo's and Awwww... and some even stopping to just watch for a few moments to see what all the hubbub was about. Lines were long and people were backed up into the isles. Some would take a look at my hands and say "no way am I making that kind of mess". Crafting has come a long way since then and most have embraced some sort of paint into there projects.
While "surfing" I ran across a few stories of how the Glimmer Mist has touched them and their crafting styles. I would like to share my appreciation and excitement with all of you on just how blessed and honored I feel for everything that has happened to me in the past 7 years. I worked so incredibly hard to create Tattered Angels and gave up a lot and in return the Crafting world has given me sooooo, soooo, much more, most importantly, knowing some of the worlds most talented amazing women in the industry that I call my friends.
If you have a story please share it with all the misters of the world. Place a comment on my blog and share your story. It truly is a misting phenomenon and is continually growing and forging a new market in the crafting industry, that I am proud to say I have been a part of it from the beginning.
