a lot of paper…and then some more…
Here's something interesting…
I'm working on a mosaic of Abe Lincoln for my 2-Design class and I had to cut 832 (yes, EIGHT HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO) 1/2 inch squares to complete the mosaic, which by the way is still NOT complete and I really want to burn it. Mr. Teacher suggests that it is un-artsy to use anything other than rubber cement. Although I do love said teacher because he also encourages us to use our "creative license" and our "resources" and possibly even "cheat" but not in a dishonest way. Like using a paper trimmer rather than an exacto knife. That kind of "cheating." LOL!! I call it work smarter not harder ;) You know what I say to rubber cement…YUCK!!!! I hate it! Don't these educated people know about fancy schmancy paper trimmers and tape runners!?! I'll have to teach them a thing or two 😉
What self respecting scrapbooker uses rubber cement? Come on!!!
Let me tell you…it hurts. Bad. (and it stinks too!)
I also accomplished two additional tasks today…I cleaned my kitchen window and one of the ovens!!! Around here, trust me, these days that is a BIG DEAL…talk about brownie points with the hubby!!! He came in smiling big when he saw that shiny window and my clean oven! LOL! Maybe I'll get the other one done before the year is out 🙂
Okay…moving on to the next project….Tammy, your business cards are coming right up! xoxo
