I did a craft project with my daughter yesterday. It was doomed from the beginning. A simple project where you put heavy-duty contact paper onto wrapping paper so you can cut out funky shapes to put on the wall. (btw-I also use this technique for place mats.) It started off with not buying contact paper, but sticky shelf paper-they were in the same bin. The paper didn't go on smoothly. It wasn't sturdy enough to maintain its shape on the wall. The shapes did not look cool. I have this picture in my head of how it should look, and I waaayyyy missed the mark. That is so disheartening to me. I hate it when I can't make what I think into what I see.
