what if? - paper circles

What if I buy more glue sticks, instead of constantly searching for the two UHU ones that I already own? What if I use pages from the old 'Dominion Educator' I purchased in Aberfoyle at the end of the summer (or was it fall)? What if I buy a 3/4" circle, paper punch (already happened, but I really wanted a 1" one)? What if I totally wreck my hands by punching out tons of little tiny circles in a very short period of time(again, already done)? What if there's an easier way? What if I actually use some of those circles? What if I don't follow Kaite's idea for making a slinky, though beautiful and probably terribly impractical, necklace out of them (like she spotted on a friend)? What if I pile them up,and UHU some of them together? What if I then punch a hole in them? What if I have no idea how I want to coat or protect them? What if I just make a bunch and then figure out what I'm going to do later? What if I add them to a stitched piece, bead journal or make a completely different type of necklace/bracelet/earrings out of them? What if I tell you that I have some ideas, but don't want to share until I experiment (selfish, I know)? What if I figure out what to do with the leftover bits from punching out the circles? What if I actually have more circles, but that they're in neat stacks, just waiting for a good TV show and UHU? What if I confess that I now own a 1" and 1 1/2" circle punch? What if the circle has no end?
What if I take a nap?

Something tells me you are going to keep 'looking' for the 2 glue sticks you already have. You will have circles coming out your ears.... soon.

Wrong, Beth!! I actually bought a pack of 5 mini UHU's. I can justify them as supplies for my paper beads class at the end of the month.

Fun post today Anne Marie...now I'm wondering...what will come of all those wonderful text circles?

Anne Marie - Toronto said...

Thanks, Linda! I'm not sure yet....I only know that I need to make a lot more. LOL!

Oh boy - don't sneeze! You'll have circles flying all over the place. Hey...what if....a mobile of circles...a curtain of sorts...

MA, i took this photo out on the balcony, and the wind came up, so some of the circles did fly away!! I think that I found most of them, but I like to think the rest are still flying. A mobile is a good idea, but I have an awful lot of circles to make first. LOL!

What if I have a good laugh over this?
What if I don't know what UHU means?
What if I get a little nervous reading your list
What if suddenly I want a 1" and a 1.5" circle punch?
What if I start thinking about punching circles out of nautical charts or piano music sheets?
What if I start thinking about a whole bunch of things I could do with circles?
What if I start wondering about circles and paper bowls?
What if the circle never ends?
Oh, OK... what if I just take a nap?

Robin,

What if I think you're a scream?
What if I say that UHU is a good glue stick, in a yellow tube, that I believe is acid free?
What if I say go for it?
What if I say that I've already thought about the bowl idea?
What if I say good morning?

What if I'm laughing out loud?
What if I appreciate knowing about a decent, acid-free glue stick?
What if I'm happy to know you?
