....are happy hands. I've just started the last leg of a project for a favorite editor. (The editors I work with these days are all favorites because they are such good people to work with.) I'm denuding this box so that I can paint and collage it for its contents.
Here's a tip I learned at the bookstore: To remove sticky labels cleanly, pour some Ronsonol (it has to be Ronsonol) lighter fluid and scrape the label off with a very sharp blade. It will come off very easily. The Ronsonol evaporates very quickly and leaves no smell. It's best to wear gloves, or at least avoid contact to skin. I got the Ronsonol at the dollar store for $2.99.
