Craft impaired

I have always considered myself somewhat crafty. Not a professional- more of a jack of all trades, an expert of none. I have supplies to make pretty much whatever you can imagine, including probably 18 different adhesives- anywhere from Elmer's glue sticks to E-6000 (you know, the good stuff).
Anyway, being the procrastinator that I am I was making handouts at 10:15 Saturday night for my Relief Society lesson Sunday. I reached into the basket on the top of the fridge and grabbed a glue stick and went to work gluing the thought printed on plain paper onto some cute paper. It was making a weird greasy stain, which I was hoping would disappear as it dried.

After I was about half way done and the early papers should have been clearly dried, I turned the glue stick over in my hand. In frustration I was thinking, "What- kind- of- piece- of- crap- glue- stick- makes- such- a...wait, Coppertone doesn't make glue sticks..." Yeah, it was sunscreen.


The picture isn't very clear- my camera batteries were about dead and I had neglected to recharge the new ones...

Eventually I got my act together and found an actual glue stick. All is now right in the world and hopefully everyone's hand-outs have been a life-changing source of inspiration since the moment they laid eyes on them!

Too funny! I hope they appreciate all your hard work. That is why I never make handouts.
