I was all set to make some special gifts for my kids and just needed to print a few things that I needed. Unfortunately, as soon as I went to print out the first sheet, I noticed that the printer was jammed and no paper would feed through. After nearly an hour and a half of picking through the inner workings of my printer with a pair of tweezers, a long pin and a popsicle stick , this is what I uncovered stuck inside...
Yes, that's nearly 75 crumpled, printer ink-stained paper punched stars that somehow made their way into every nook and cranny of the inside of the printer. While I certainly admire the creativity of my kids and love the projects they create with a variety of craft supplies, I was not pleased with where all these little paper stars had ended up!
Fortunately, it was not one of my own three kids, but the 4th child living in our house, "Not Me".
NOTE: When I just went searching for the "Not Me' character from the great Family Circus cartoons, I discovered that the creator Bil Keane just recently passed away in November. :(
