Life Lessons, Part 1

Never take your heat tool and turn it on directly over your embossing tray that still has mounds of loose EP sitting in it! UGH!

For those of you non-crafters, this would be equated to taking a hair dryer, pointing it at a bowl full of lets say, sugar, and turning it on.

As if that was not bad enough, that lesson was learned TWICE tonight. Obviously, I am not a quick learner, Jenny.

Oh yes, it looks like ol' man winter came can vomited on my craft table!

Off to grab some Windex, paper towels, the vacuum and my brain. Maybe tomorrow I will make a Scarecrow card...

Ahh. The crafting lessons we all learn... Mine was, do not use your heat tool near the carpet! That was a few years ago, and my hubby still talks about the matted dark spot in my craft room!

Ohhh, nooo! That's not fun, you poor thing! Definitely one of those lessons to learn the hard way.

Oh no, I feel your pain. I learned that the tiny little glass beads go everywhere like sand in your swimsuit when you spill them! I spilled mine on the craft table a month or more ago and I still feel them when I clean off the table.

I am so sorry! Embossing powder is so not fun to clean up.

I had a stamp camp here last spring and one of my friends took the embossing tool off of the table (it was crowded) and decided to heat emboss on the carpet instead. Can you guess what happened?

Fortunately, it is a very small area, and my hubby has yet to notice. He probably thinks it was there when we bought the house.
