I woke up at 3 a.m. with a horrifying dream, which has been filled up with jars overflowing with disgusting liquid coloured like mud. Children had been crying and I have been helpless. I was traveling around apartment for a bit and than went beck to the bed. Making a galaxy jars from paint and cotton balls at the same time, when is most of the Whistler resident having the last drink, would be a little nuts. So I snuggled to the warm blankets and kept turning angrily around for next two hours until the alarm went on.
“Finally!!!” probably first time in my life I have been happy, that my boyfriend is waking up at 5:30 and I have a excuse to start the magic (because at this time is not weird at all, right?).
How it works?
- Fluff the cotton balls and push them on the bottom of the jar.
- Bring on your glitter game! There is just one rule, more is always better.
- Add little bit of colourful liquid (not too much, the cotton can’t float). It could be just water with couple drops of food colouring or strait up tempura paint (be sure is washable). experiment, there is many ways.
- And thats it, you can just repeat the steps over and over.
When I was done, it looked like this: “Hmm, thats not ugly… I will try to shake it… Interesting… OK…that’s pretty awful!” I dump the all thing in the toilet bowl. And started over being angry at bunch of teenagers, who’s jars in the youtube video turned out amazing and they have been screaming: “Oooo my goooosh, they are sooooo prettyyyy. Waaauuu, sooooo cool, it would be amaaaazing for Valentines dayyyy…”
After making my toilet look like place, which is being visit just and only by unicorns, I came up with one jar which was good enough, I dumped it too and went to the The Whistler Tea House set up everything. And than the magic happened, the kids showed up, the cotton balls, paint and glitters were flying in the air, the parents has been patiently helping. You could just hear “Wau!!!” and “Yeey!!!” and “Beautiful!!!!” and “Amazing!!!!” and “We run out of jars!!!!!” and “No, we found some!!!” and everyone was colourful (no worries, it was washable) and happy and my college Sylvie had still glitters on her face three hours later . And I learned, that as always, the kids just turned everything into the right direction. And because, they are not cheap like somebody and not trying to save 3 cotton balls, it actually work! And because their clear minds just want to create the best they can imagine, they will surprise us again and again.
Ok, stoping being romantic… I hope, non of the jars explode in your purse. I hope we will not need to call the plumber because off all the cotton balls in the toilet and I hope to see you all next sunday, your kids are awesome.
