It seems that emma and myself are not alone in making..... *ahem*...shall we say, 'less than enlightend' decisions in the course of our crafting. (We've already discussed the pitfalls of sticky dots elsewhere!)

If you have had an embarrasing crafting moment then we'd like you to own up and confess here!

I know it's not my booboo but my Mum decided to heat emboss straight on to a brand new carpet, which left two perfect A6 burnt patches!
Personally I always find glittering the cats is a great hobby.

I am really good at putting inserts in upside down, but the best one is slicing through the carpet when using a metal ruler and a craft knife (but forgetting the cutting mat) Yipes!

(Margaret has me beat on the Australian stamping though) lol!

I caught the 'is it dry yet?' syndrome from Lynn and ALWAYS put my fingers in stickles while they're still wet.

Important note to remember - when triple embossing, the molten embossing powder is VERY HOT! do not poke your fingers in it.

It is true there are some people who should not be allowed near wet crafts. If I was paid a penny for every time I've heard "Is it dry yet? Ooops!", I could have bought that big farm I want.

Although my favourite trick is forgetting to glitter something then trying to do it to a completed card. This usually means everything slides down the card giving it my famous off centre look.

and then you spend half an hour trying to remove loose glitter from the bits you didn't want glittered.....by this time you have glitter on your fingers and keep re-glittering the de-glitted bits lol!

plus they wear beige because they can then wear socks and sandels as they'll camouflage into the sand on the beach. then they think no one will notice.!!!!
