So I've been stalking my partner EdelC and I see on her pinterest page this 'I Love You' collage. It's a bunch of letters in different fonts and colors cut out from magazines, newpapers, ads, etc. Really neat.
I think to myself, that would be a great idea. I can cut out all the letters and mail them as a DIY along with that modgepodge stuff. It can be one of the eight little thingies for the first package. It can represent me with my Reduce-Reuse-Recycle way of life. Perfect, eh? And I can make one for me too.
So I get my pile of papers and start cutting. One hour later, I barely have enough letters for two lines. Argh! The husband is laughing at me, "I told you so." I still have about 30 lines left. That's another 15 hours of cutting, I'm guessing. My fingers are hurting and so is my right foot. My right foot? What's going on with my right foot? I look down and have a magazine staple sticking out of my right foot. When was my last tetnus shot?
Let's just say that the REUSE has turned into RECYCLE. I can't tell you how many of my projects end up this way
