In Memory

I can always remember the day I heard the news of his passing! just hit my heart like a dagger! I was so in love with his work! and never missed a Vogue issue! I would tear pictures out and put them all over my walls! then I fell in LOVE!!! with his home d├ęcor line and wanted my room filled with his beautiful pillows!! and my table filled with his beautiful treasures!! he was so gifted! so Multi-talented beyond measure! still miss the old fashion shows they used to interview him on. when I saw his house one time! I  was floored at all the beautiful details! would have loved to have met him in person! one of the people with the IT factor on overload!! the world was blessed to have had such a jewel in it's midst!! 4ever missed and 4ever cherished!!

Fellow Crafter

After graduating college from Loyola University New Orleans, Kristen packed up her Volkswagen Jetta and made the 3000 mile trip out west to Los Angeles, California. With no job, no money, no place to stay, Kristen did what most new fashionable arrivals do... she headed to Rodeo Drive. Quickly realizing she needed a job to support her shopping habit, Kristen landed her first job as a fashion publicist.
After a few years playing fashion publicist extraordinaire, Kristen went in search of a job that tapped into her creative juices. She stepped from behind the fashion desk and started working full time as a celebrity stylist. Over the years, Kristen has worked with many celebrities on a variety of projects, but she realized her real passion was styling real size women and showing the fashion industry that beauty is beyond a size 2. Beauty and fashion come in all shapes and sizes and everyone deserves to feel like a supermodel. Kristen was honored to have styled cover of Plus Model Magazine and work with many of the leaders in the plus fashion community.
While making waves in the fashion industry she started a fashion do-it-yourself blog called Glitter 'N Glue in 2010. Kristen merged her two worlds and began a fashion
do-it-yourself blog as a way to create trends without breaking the bank account. She's had the opportunity to work with amazing brands such as Forever 21, Teen Vogue, Seventeen Magazine, Sperry Top-Siders, Lucky Brand Jeans, Rit Dye, Krylon Spray Paintand Sharpie to bring fun and colorful DIY projects to all her readers. Kristen was also featured on E! News dishing out cool celebrity inspired fashion DIY projects to the masses.
Kristen's fashion inspiration comes from both her maternal and paternal grandmothers and her Texas upbringing. She currently lives in Los Angeles in a historical Hollywood building once owned by MGM studios whose rumored inhabitant was Marilyn Monroe.
