Things I'm Learning From Crafting......

Remember my inspiration here....



Well I have been on the hunt!

My Sis In Law...told me about the button at Hobby Lobby.....I ran straight there...(Thanks Jen). I also got the tin L there too...(love that store)


map
(sorry took with my cell phone...flash was on)


My In Laws had an old map ....so I just made the M....

Things I learned about Spray Adhesive? It's totally not my friend...

For starters I guess I didn't have my smarts cap on.

I thought I was being smart....I read the back instructions....(for once)

It said to be able to move it and reposition (which hello....of course I will) to spray it and leave for about 3-5 mins .....if you want a quick set apply immediately.

So I think about going outside to spray, but didn't want the little kids following me....I mean seriously when they hear a door crack they come a'running. So I walked into the hallway and sprayed.....

Big mistake.....

One my fingers and hand were getting hit.....and then I realized the spray was hitting the floor....

So I do what any smart person does and step in it to see if it's sticky!

Reid decides to walk in the mess too....now we are both sticking to the floor....

I run and place the M on my work space and rush to get floor cleaner to stop the stick.....That worked...(I think)

But my forearm and wrist and fingers are sticky....oh and bottom of my feet.....ohh my. I stepped onto the rug and whatever dog hair was there? Is now on the bottom of my feet.

I thought that I didn't have time to clean me...it had already been 3-5 mins....I needed to start sticking the map on....

Again ....not an easy task....took me forever to get it just right and w/o any ripples. I'd pull the map up gently...and some of it would tear (maps aren't real sturdy creatures to begin with)

I finally got it just so.....but I realized what a sticky mess I was....

I tried soap and warm water...nothing...

I've tried pouring nail polish remover on my hands and wrist....nothing....

I grabbed the bottle .....nothing about removing from skin.

Really? As if I'm the first person to do something this stupid?

Now as I type I am sticking to the keyboard...

Things I've learned about spray adhesive? I suck at it.

But the map didn't turn out too bad....(if I say so myself)


I'm just gonna be really careful in the future of how I spray this stuff....

Keep your eyes open for really cool different Letters for me....

This is the bedding I'm bidding on on Ebay....

bedding

Happy Times!!!!

If you come across an un-sticker, let me know. I used some spray adhesive the other day on the table....oopsy.

That alphabet wall is gonna be so cool!!

Haha. And that is why I don't craft. Haha.

First time commenter, I know Googone might work since it takes off price tags, lipstick, crayon, and other sticky adhesives and bubble gum, etc. though and it has a citrus scent.
