Duct Tape Sunday

Sunday is not always a day of rest.  It can also be a day of unbelievable boredom.  Our little shop of horrors should not be open on a day when there is nothing to do except check the clock every ten minutes to calculate how many more minutes are left before we can close the doors and go home.  It’s amazing what some people get paid to do isn’t it?  But come on, do you know how HARD it is to look busy when there’s nothing to do?  Sorry, I’m not giving away my secrets. Besides I think it’s a natural talent that can’t be taught to just anybody.

Our granddaughter Kenzie has been here this weekend with her dog and her duct tape.  She makes Barbie furniture and accessories, wallets, purses, flowers, picture frames, hair bows, bookmarks and a big mess with bits and pieces of duct tape everywhere. Amazing stuff.  She looks on YouTube, finds something she likes and sits down and makes it.

While she does this, I make little boxes out of old Christmas cards.  These are the worlds smallest gift boxes, and I’m not making them merely because I’m nuts. There are some very small gifts that are hard to wrap and this makes it all easier.  Plus incredibly more fun.  I hope that sounded convincing.

Here’s some great music to craft by.  Play it loud enough and no one will hear you crying about your paper cuts.

  1. I have seen teenage girls do some amazing things with those cool new duct tapes. Makes me wonder what duct tape can’t be used on! My MIL gave me wd-40, duct tape and a hammer when I got married saying, “this is all you’ll need in life, and in marriage: tape to keep you two together mo matter what, a hammer to break fights or move you ahead together and wd-40 to keep things smooth and easy.”

  2. That reminds me that some day I have to write about my experience working in a department store on Saturdays as a teenager, and what I did when I got bored that got me fired.
