Decoupage--the Devil's Medium

Ick, ick, ick.

$14.98: Wesley wanted a new poster/coloring page. Ray, the diabolical four year old, grabbed a beginner's decoupage set.

$42.99: The cost of replacement Levi's for me after I attempted to help Ray with our first decoupage project.

Seeing my husband's face when he realized I glued my fingers to the fireplace hearth: ANNOYING.

Why have I not learned that I do not possess the craft gene (except for knitting of course)? It's the vain hope that one day I might be able master the art of applying glue without bodily injury.

Why hasn't Hobby Lobby put a Wanted: Dead or Alive poster of me in their windows? They make too much money from me.

Why hasn't the federal government passed a law prohibiting decoupage? They've passed laws for everything else.

You have brought a much needed smile to my face and given me a good laugh (sorry it's at your expense). I have not tried decoupage and after reading of your experience...I don't think I will be. I really needed this...Christmas is stressing me out!!
Hope you've recovered...Have a Happy Holiday!
