Let it go! Let it go!

Okay, I love that song from Frozen, but it’s sometimes tough to do.

i have a hard time using liquid adhesives.  Give me a tape runner, a glue stick, self-stick embellishments, foam tape and I’ll do fine.  But lately I’ve been trying to use more of the supplies I’ve collected over the years, and some of them call for (four-letter word here) GLUE!

I’ll pull bits and pieces off shelves and out of drawers, and mix and match to get a “design” I like.  And then, I have to GLUE something.

Now I have the vision of the end result in my head, but I have to stop working on it until the glue dries.  And that’s so hard for me that I generally need to leave the craft room entirely.  Because if I stay to work on something else, I’ll go back and check on the glue, which is never dry yet! lol  (I sometimes think glue simply won’t dry when I’m in the same room with it.)

Having experienced a number of glue-related mess-ups, I’ve retrained myself pretty well now.  I’ll squeeze out that dollop of glue, position my two pieces, peer down over them to check the placement, then actually pull my hands up and step back from the table, reminding myself to let it go instead of fiddling with it any further.

For me, I’d rather find myself wishing I got more done, than find myself swearing over a project I’ve just ruined because I couldn’t wait for the glue.  Just let it go!

Now, if I could just figure out how to do this with food!  lol
