Glue Mess Gets Duck Taped

Duck Tape the desk My own photo! 🙂

Courtesy of my cellphone and a new app I discovered, BeFunky App. Love it!

My hubby built me my very own Creative Cave in the basement. He also gave me his old table he used for building his big model airplanes. He had knocked over a bottle of strong glue onto the table last year. We tried lots of things to get it off but only accomplished most of it.

I pondered for months what I wanted to do to cover it up.

Duck Tape!

Throughout the year I had seen the square sheets in several stores and thought yes! We went to Menards tonight to get some other supplies for remodeling the basement and I caught a glimpse of these. I knew that was what I wanted to do. I bought only three sheets for now to see how it looked and what design I wanted to go with.

I like it! 😉

I will continue the pattern the rest of the way across the table. The sheets were 1.99 each. Cheap design idea plus no mess or smell. I like the bits of wood still in the areas I won’t cover up. I hope the corners will stay down if not I will find more duck tape! LOL 🙂

I like the feel of it too. It covered up a few splinter parts as well. It will be easier to clean than the wood since the wood is not stained or clear coated.

Sometimes one needs to ponder awhile. Me, it seems like it takes months! LOL

Hope you have a great weekend, I think we will! We are going to go to my hometown fair where our other home is at. 🙂

More work to do there. Sad thing is we have not made it back much this year so it is in major need of cleaning and work. 🙂 That is ok, we will get to have fun in the evening at the carnival. Home owned and operated by local volunteers. I hear they added two more rides! 🙂

I can not wait to have a funnel cake and a pork burger!!!!

Clearance Collage

Sports 029

I started this collage a few weeks ago. I have been staring at it wondering what else to add to it. I do this a lot. Stare at it. 🙂

I bought the small canvas squares at an art store and did some cross hatching in ink on them. They are peel and stick canvas, really neat. I will definitely buy some more.

The background paper are scrapbook sheets that I have. I have yet to really start my scrapbook projects, sigh. I may get those done by the time I have all four kids graduated, so that gives me at least seven more years. It’s already been twenty-two which is how old my oldest is.

OOOPs, been busy?

I could probably come up with a lot of excuses, but it won’t change that the books are not done.

Supplies are bought! 🙂

I found some flowers on clearance at another store, just knew they would come in handy someday. Clearance racks rock!

It just may be stored for twenty-two years is all. Another ooops! I think my husband calls that a hoarder. Nah! I just love cute things.

I hunted for the frame at the same store as the flowers. I actually had a different one picked out, but then this one caught my eye, CLEARANCE!

I am an unemployed writer and creative want-to-be so clearance is my best friend, at least my pocketbook says so.
