What Kind of Fool Am I?
Who out there uses spray paint without putting on latex gloves or some kind of hand protection?
Who now has painted fingertips?
You don't have to answer, just raise your shiny black spray painted hands and I will feel a little solidarity!
Feeling really stupid, smelling like mineral spirits, and needing a good scrubbing right now.
So to answer the question, I am the fool with yucky hands!
(There are not my hands, but those arms look younger and kind of firm so maybe I should claim them)
This is the craft we put together today at Independence Place. It is a wonderful haven for adults with special needs and I am so privileged to be able to volunteer there. We made cell phone docking stations out of mushrooms containers, wood grained contact paper covered foam core and card stock covered post it notes. I just got this picture of Anthony's docking station for his dad. This is the best I can do for a picture. Excess glue is always part of things we do there, but it is part of the joy. Later I will post some pictures of other things I have had the honor of doing with them.
Have you ever volunteered for something and thought you had something to offer them, then realized exactly the opposite is true and you get so much more than you could ever give?
