Warning: Crafting can be Hazardous

I am obsessed with crafting! I have self diagnosed myself with crafting ADD as not only do I love all types of crafts (ex. sewing, crocheting,quilting, DIY anything, paper crafts,etc.) I never finish anything because I get too excited to try something new. It's no surprise that my favorite room in the house is my craft room! While it is still a work in progress, I decided to take pics of it now, because this is literally the only time it was clean.

There is nothing that makes me happier then having some time to craft! So I was thrilled when Saturday, I had an opportunity to work on a burlap banner I wanted to make for Valentines Day. The kids were all playing and I had no major school projects so into my craft room I went. Unfortunately, I didn't get very far into the project, not because of my ADD, but because of my rotary blade! Lets just say that blade can cut through a lot more than fabric! After feeling a bit of pain I looked down to see that I had cut my finger... what I didn't know until I went to rinse it, was that I actually cut the corner tip of my pointer finger off! Strangely enough there was no pain but since it would not stop bleeding I decided to go to the urgent care. I sent Anna and her friend on a mission to bring back a babysitter (I was watching my niece and nephew at the time) and I calmly sat down and waited until they came back. When I arrived at the urgent care and showed them my finger I was a little disappointed to find out that they couldn't sew the tip back on! They cauterized the finger to stop the bleeding, wrapped it up and sent me on my way. Needless to say any chances I had of becoming a hand model are now over! I have yet to finish the burlap banner....but I moved on to another project anyway!


  1. Oh my goodness, how horrible! I'm guessing it cut close to the bone?

  2. coolest craft room ever!! Sorry to hear about the finger!! ouch!
