GLitter MAKes the WorLD a BriGHTer PLACE!

24 Jun

Yep, that’s a homemade glitter iphone case. You know you wanna make one.

I woke up and said to Courtney, “We must glitter my phone case!”  and so we did.

We taped off the inside and made this handle to have full glitter control.

This chunky 1970’s glitter of my great grandmother’s was just screaming to be used.

First , you coat the top of the phone case in glue and smother with glitter. I wouldn’t use Mod Podge, maybe spray adhesive? We used Mod Podge (see below). You just need the glitter to stick. Then you mix two-part high gloss resin together and pour over. It takes about 2 days to dry and then BAM, glitter iphone magic!

Wahwaaahhh. . . about a week later it tore off. It was fun while it lasted. (I bet it was the stupid children’s grade Mod Podge.)

WoRDs WitH BeNJi HugHeS.

Alisha hit the jackpot last week when she found these gems. She took these photos on my birthday in 2009 when we barely knew each other ! CRAZY ! I also had the opportunity to catch up with Benji Hughes yesterday and this is what he had to say . . .

It’s been a while since Benji has visited Wilmington. He claims to be doing a lot with JBRN(jam band recovery network). He says, “They do really good work. A lot of people need help after being exposed to years of jam band music. They repair broken unicycles and sandals.  Also- JBRN sends out groovy vibes when people get wigged out.”

Of course I had to ask what his dream man bag would look like! “I haven’t ever thought much about man bags. I guess a bag that looks like a fish would be pretty cool. Made of a softish yet durable fabric.”

I also learned that Benji would never donate his body to science or let us make bags out of his skin.

I heard on the streets that Benji is working on a new album but he offered no information. He did tell me he would shower in Wilmington. That’s fresh.
