As I shared in my last post, I spent a few days on Long Island, New York with a group of teenagers working on Hurricane Sandy relief projects. While preparing for the trip, I tried to think of ways I could use some of the relationships I’ve established through my blog to help. I didn’t know what the church and parsonage needed, so I didn’t try to get any specific products, but one thing I have a lot of was Frog Tape. They just sent me two huge boxes to giveaway as freebies at the Lucketts Antique Market. So, I grabbed a small box of eight rolls on the way out the door. I was certain it would come in handy.
The box of Frog Tape was packed under the seats of the van, so I forgot about it as the group started to bag trash, hang new doors and lay flooring. Sometime in the afternoon of the first work day, one of the teenagers came up to me. “Marian, do you have any tape or know where some is?” Well, as a matter of fact, I do!
He was helping my husband lay the wood floor in one of the bedrooms in the parsonage…
They needed some tape to prevent the underlayment from rolling up. Frog Tape would do the trick nicely.
And the floors look amazing…
I actually brought Frog Tape to help with all of our painting jobs, but, as always, it turned out to be very handy for all sorts of things. We did use it to tape off hinges and stained doors and also as “caution tape” across newly painted doorways. I left the remaining rolls with the church, where I knew they would be put to good use. (They still have a lot to do!)
If you want to give Frog Tape a try, I will be giving FREE rolls away at the Lucketts Antique Market, May 18-19, 2013, while supplies last.
