Life and creative thinking...***UPDATE*** see the end of the post...


This is one fun project created for Maya Road's booth @ CHA-W.
It's the scallop coaster & box. I'm posting it just for the word LIFE.
Normally I don't pass on emails & jokes/stories, but this is just too good to miss.
The moral of the story is to think CREATIVELY in all aspects of life.
Here it is......................
According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

My mother was a little down today so I sent her your story. She will "wet her pants" laughing. Thanks for that piece of humor.

Can't wait unti tomorrow...although I owe you a project. I know what I want to do, it's just finding the stuff to do it with. Not being the artist...but a scrapbooker I often don't know what to look for to make altered art. But I'll get there one way or another. LOL
