|Posted: 2/14/2013 12:25:47 PM|Has anyone ever noticed that GG says that all the time in her videos. It's so cute!!! I giggle every time she says it.

Yep! I immediately thought of her when I read your thread title. She is so dang cute!
|Posted: 2/14/2013 2:57:52 PM|I love how she says "a bit" of this and that. DS5 has started saying it.

|Posted: 2/14/2013 4:19:02 PM|Well, let me tell you that if you play some sort of Glitter Girl drinking game that highlights how much she uses the word 'overly', you might be just ever so slightly tipsy by the end of an episode!
You know how in the 80s/90s we all had a certain attitude about hating to hear ourselves played back on an answering machine and how it would make us cringe? I have gotten better about hearing myself in general, but the phrases I overuse... oh how they make me want to hide. And 'in general' is one of them. Sigh!
And 'across' is a mystery to me. For some reason, on the microphone, it picks it up as 'acrossed' or 'acrosst' or something odd. I know it doesn't have any extra letters at the end and I started asking the Adhesive Avenger and other friends listen to me say the word. They all reported no extra sound. Turn on the microphone, and there it is. But I cannot replicate it with any other word. It drives me batty!!! And of course, once you are aware of something like that, you realise how often you say that word. It is rare that I film an episode without saying something like 'across the page' at least once. Woe is me.
It's funny how filming Glitter Girl has given me a whole new level of appreciation for people who work in the tv and film industries. I knew a little (my amazingly useful background in musical theatre did include some tv and radio production classes - which, of course I thought I would never use since I was going to be such a serious aaaact-resssssss!) but every step of the way has made me learn something new. I learned a whole new piece of software to do the opening sequence for this year and now when I see the opening credits for a show I realise how it is all done frame by frame and I just want to shout 'I'm not worthy' to the screen. Of course there is also the fact that I now own more anti-aging products for my hands than my face, but that's a whole other discussion. Not even ever so slightly.
(Though I have to say the ever so slightly comes from watching what happens in in-person workshops, when often scrappers follow right along but wonder why their page looks different and it's because the angles are too big or the pieces are spaced too far apart. So don't move it much - just ever so slightly!!!)

LOL! I always think it's great to hear lil' bits of a Brit accent pop in and out- I work with a Brit and he's been in the states for about 5 years...it's really interesting to hear how his accent has changed over these years.

It is all in love, you know! I think the ever so slightly is actually a really important one. When I started with layering and angles I heard that in my head and less is definitely more!
I agree we need a GG drinking game though. That would be too much fun!
And FWIW, I haven't noticed extra letters at the end of across.

Glitter girl, you're perfect! We (my daughters and I) love the sound of your voice and all the cute things you say! I wish I expressed myself as we'll as you do!
|Posted: 2/14/2013 6:29:12 PM|Awww Glitter Girl, I think you do and say everything beautifully in your videos. They are very well put together, I can always understand you and they are so fun to watch. And of course, I learn so much from you! You are the best!!!

|Posted: 2/14/2013 6:30:44 PM|I love Shimelle's phrases. I love how some words, the British accent is really predominant. She is really picking up that accent over there. I love listening to it.
Shimelle... LOL to the more hand cream than face products!! Made me chuckle.

I agree. I hear it on occasion too. Love it!

|Posted: 2/14/2013 8:06:21 PM|I that you mentioned drinking games!! My husband and I love doing this. It's his way of agreeing to watch all things girly with me, such as the Twilight Series, etc. I already have him watching GG, which he enjoys as is, but he's going to flip when he hears we can make it a drinking game!
You're so fun Shimelle .

My mom is from England (has lived in the states for many years), but when I hear GG say certain phrases it takes me home to my mom again!! I adore everything about GG. Her style, her look, her voice/phrases and all that I learn from her!
Awww... Just mentioned to hubby that another pea's hubby watches her videos. He said he would if I wanted him too!!! Lol!!!!!

My dgs has started watching glitter girl videos with me and he said "I love the way she talks"! High praise from a 7 year old.
|Posted: 2/15/2013 6:31:00 AM|Such a useful phrase. It's always in my head when I layer--and this has made all the difference in my projects.
