Geeez! I tell ya, I just don't have time for things like this. All I have to say is, "Be warned crafty people.... treat those lovely little spatulas with the care of a knife!"
This morning I had volunteered to go help my son's Kinder teacher for a couple hours. It was great. The people at the school are so nice. and the teacher was so grateful... Top of my To-Do list today is my Christmas cards. After running a lovely piece of kraft cardstock through my bug, I was attempting to lift the shapes off the mat when they started to shred. My mat was too sticky. So I grabbed my new spatula. I had treated myself to one when CricutMachine.com had them on sale last month. Now, don't get me wrong. I know they're metal and flat and could be sharp but.... OUCH!!!
Yeah, that's not red ink, folks! The blade was in my right hand and it slipped and scratched down my thumb on my left hand. I looked at it... noticed the scratch but didn't think anything of it. Maybe 15 seconds later the vital fluid that should remain inside my body was forcing its way out of my thumb through this tiny scratch. And it hurts like crazy! (Isn't it silly how the smallest cuts... like a paper-cut.. can hurt so much?!) Anyway, the cut runs from one knuckle to the other so every time I bend my thumb I'm reminded of my ever-so-clever, and graceful I might add, maneuver. I guess it's a good thing I don't faint at the sight of blood, right?
So, to all my family and friends that are on my Christmas card list this year... I just want to say, I hope you appreciate the steps I have taken to elevate my crafting to a life-threatening, adventuresome level.
Hope you're all having a splendid day! Time for me to get back to my cards. Toodles!
