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.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

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.

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.

I have been told that there are different types of glitter--different glitter for crafts and for soaps etc--When I have a "glitter dump" vacuuming is the easiest way to deal with  the mess..
