Now, who pray tell sent Mr Murphy for a visit when I was at the end of the project? You know, that Mr Murphy with all the laws about stuff going wrong and all that $#!+.
Well if you didn't, who did? Because let me tell you, he was there and I did not invite him.
And I know it is just not in Norah'S nature to sabotage. She only gives conflict with offering so many different ideas all at once. And we all know she can't spell.
But about Mr Murphy, he showed up with a most evil evil tool when I was ready to punch and put together the project. You know the tool (crop-a-dile) that will punch and set two different size holes. EVIL!
After practicing on an old book cover and deciding the small hole would be best, I marked and punched the first hole. Then when I punched the second hole (on the front cover), guided my Mr Murphy, no doubt, I punched a big hole instead of a little hole. Staying cool calm and collected, I remember my Daddy telling me I could do anything I thought I could do.
My thought, "I can make this work".
First thing I did was flag with a ribbon the wrong punch side. I will not make that mistake twice. BUT, Just as sure as I punched it wrong once....oh yes again! EVIL EVIL TOOL! I marked the holes on the back cover. Mr Murphy handed me the EVIL tool and I punched the right size hole. Holly Molly $#!+, I punch the hole on the wrong edge. This time I didn't stay very calm. I had to get-a-grip! Yes, I had to get my grip off of this EVIL tool.
I found the plugs that had been punched out. I filled the hole with glue and stuffed the plug back in. With a little coaxing....no hole. On the front cover, I changed the location of the hole and punched another.
That's not all. After punching and setting 10 small eyelets, I decided the small hole would not work. Who ever thought that in the first place? Of course, Mr Murphy. I sent him home and went to bed. The next day, I dug out the eyelets, punched big holes, set big eyelets. Mr Murphy showed up for the setting of the very last eyelet. Yep, it was set upside down. What I mean is on one hole the eyelet was set from the front of the page and on the other hole it was set from the back side of the page. I very quickly got OK with it and sent him packing....with his EVIL tool.
And that is enough for now,
