On another forum I belong to (all men), some of the guys started a thread to complain about their wives/girlfriends/daughters getting glitter all over everything and one even referred to the stuff as "craft herpes" and another as "cancer dust".  (Most) men apparently despise glitter with a passion, lol.  I don't craft with it, but, I like sparkly stuff, so, I generally don't have a problem with glitter.  Some of my dolls shed it like pixie dust, which occasionally annoys me, but not to the point of hatred.

I've heard it called craft herpes before.  I don't mind it too much as long as I know it's there.  Opening an envelope, not expecting glitter and it going everywhere is super annoying.

I love it! I love it so much. It's always all over my face, haha. I also hate it though because it's environmentally catastrophic so I won't buy any more of it in my lifetime and have talked to the kids about alternatives and why we'll avoid it in future. Sad but true, sigh.

I never though about it, but, I looked it up, and, yeah, you're correct, CLM, glitter isn't very good for our environment, especially when it gets into the water supply and food chain.

I do hate glitter. It gets everywhere and you never seem to get it all. I have some ribbon and other craft items that shed glitter. It annoys me, but I did buy the stuff. I sometimes use glitter glue, at least that is contained.

With that said, a world without glitter would be a sad place.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Yes - there are a number of companies selling eco glitter/biodegradable glitter - I think it is available in Canada now too.  At least some companies are shipping to Canada.
