the 200 dollar card (don't look if you're squeamish)


So the other night, my boys were gone...perfect time for a little crafting! I made one card and thought it needed a little flower embellishment. Using my best sewing scissors (yes, I do know better!) I was cutting the little flower from its WIRE stem and in that split second, I also cut a little 'v-chunk' in my skin! How embarrassing...it required 2 stitches! (And, I had to throw the flower away because I ruined it. Ugh.)

Yokes, crafting is such a dangerous undertaking, isn't it? :)

I just found you and looove your blog! I love how "real" it is. I totally get the $200 card, sounds like something I would do. The new puppy is to die for and a new job too? Wow. Sounds like a very full life. Have a blessed week.

Don't feel too bad, I did the same thing a few weeks ago but it didn't go as deep as yours. Love your blog (Mary from Windy Meadows Farm told me about you). Hope you heal soon. Diana http://closetcrafterohio.blogspot.com/
