Welcome to the letter G in the A to Z Challenge for 2018. This year I am A to Z-ing through Michaels Arts and Crafts store. G is the letter of the day.
Gotta be for glitter, glitter, glitter!
Glitter is such a big deal it gets its own banner! Glitter can be found in a couple of areas in Michaels. First pictured is the General Crafts area. Here you can find tons of different colors and types of glitter, from big chunks to fine crystals.
In multicolor packets,
The next area that has a selection of glitter is the scrapbooking section (my personal favorite).
So many cool collections and colors!
Aren’t the colors so vibrant? There is chunky glitter, fine glitter, regular glitter and microbead types and even some designer glitter. Bet you didn’t know there was a glitter designer – LOL. Recollections is the “house brand.”

They are packaged similarly but you can tell from the prices that the glitter in the scrapbooking section is significantly higher priced. Maybe that’s the reason I never wanted to let my kids play with my scrapbooking supplies!
Another two-for today. The other big G of Michaels is glue (gotta have something to stick that glitter down with, right?) One whole aisle devoted to glues and adhesives of all types.
Even Gorilla Glue (although that’s not really necessary to hold glitter in place).
The scrapbook area has its glue too since you need acid free glue to protect your memories. These are tape runners and glue dots.
Glitter glue, the best of both worlds!
Gee there’s a lot of glitter and glue!
Do you use glitter for projects? Let your kids play with your expensive craft items? Love to hear about it. Be sure to stop by the rest of the A to Z-ers. We made it through the first week so tomorrow is a day of rest. Come back Monday for the letter H.
(Note: I decided I should add a disclaimer to these posts because I certainly don’t want to give the idea that I am being paid by Michaels to do this or that they are furnishing me with material. All pictures used in this blog series were taken by me at local Michaels stores, or are my personal pictures and every Michaels store may not have everything shown.)
