Never a Dull Moment

Kind of drawing on last week's theme of tradition is the concept of lights to brighten the dark winter skies of December. With apologies to the Southern Hemisphere, which is experiencing their summer, all the major religions on the planet incorporate lights into ceremonies and rituals to ward off the darkness.

One of our favorite events this time of year is Las Noches de las Luminarias at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. Volunteers go around lighting thousands of luminaria each night and patrons enjoy intimate music venues, food and wine. What's not to like?

We also enjoy Glendale Glitters and the downtown area all lit up.

It's all sparkly and bright! Which brings us to this week's teenie art challenge: sparkle. Maybe you just add some glitter and call it good?

Perhaps you play around with a camera and experiment with the out-of-focus light concept called bokeh.

Or, like our usually twisted selves, go off in a totally different direction? We didn't know about this movie, but it's on our list, if only for the awesome costumes (we're certain the music is just fabulous, too!)
Sparkle, the Movie
From wherever the inspiration comes from and wherever it takes you, show us some sparkle!
Send your sparkly twinchies to:
