I have been really busy at work these days.
We are getting ready for a 5K run that we host.
I'll be working on that later today.
I have a diversion.
Clip art in my sink.
I'll bet you are wondering
why you are looking at my kitchen sink
with old clip art floating in it?!
(aren't these so cute?)
Because in my ADHD delirium
I decided to try to put some stuff together
to sell on Etsy.
I have too much stuff.
While I was going through my too much stuff
I found this old scrapbook.
I thought I could soak off the clip art pictures.
I think these were glued on with mucilage.
If you don't know or remember mucilage
it was/is glue.
I'm not even sure you can still buy it.
It was an amber colored glue
in a bottle with a red rubber smeary, spreader tool at the top.
When I looked it up on Wikipedia
it says it's edible.
WE were always told that it was made from horses.
Even as a small child who ingested
more wintergreen flavored paste
than anyone should've...
Well, everyone was doing it and
it's not the same as
We all were eating paste in
Even I knew enough NOT to eat mucilage.
Now I've veered off the subject.
Back to clip art.
It was incredibly hard to remove the clip art from the pages.
What with the nasty mucilege glue and all.
Thank goodness for Elmer's.
Did you know it has a sour smell because it's made from milk?
We were too smart to eat Elmer's glue in school.
We were a highly intelligent bunch of kids.
Chowing down on wintergreen flavored paste instead.
I've digressed again.
I worked hard to remove the clip art from the pages.
It's a real pain in the keester.
But I managed.
What do you think?
Should I bundle some old pages from books, old clipart,
ribbons, buttons, and what not to sell as a Destash lot?
Good idea - Bad idea.
What do you think?
I can wait while you decide.
Please ignore the Christmas clip art.
I wouldn't put that together this time of year.
I'm smarter than that
I did not eat that much glue.
Just in case you were wondering.
It probably explains
a lot about me.
