{& the stupid shall be punished}

that's a favorite quote of Mark's and today I got what that actually meant....

being that i am kid free and Mark was working and its my day off, i decided that i would spend my day scrapping and catching up on my DVR'd "stories" (what is going on on All My Kids & GH??, I am so lost!!!!!!) Anyway, back to my stupid story, I am cropping away and I actually did one of my all time favorite pages (its Lorrie's 2006 Birthday page, I might add...its super cute!!) and decided a puncture wound to my knuckle was in order. How would scrapbooking cause such a wound you might ask??? You know those Stickles, I am lovin the Stickles on occassion when I decide my page needs a little extra bling. Well, this birthday page needed a little "something something", but the tube was clogged and what to shove into a little hole to unclog that would do the trick?? Why, a Cutterbee scissor or course!! Except for the fact that if you shove it hard enough it just might slip and dive into the hand holding the Stickles. The weird thing is that at first I thought, "wow, I'm not even going to bleed, its not that deep" and then after what seemed like a few minutes, not only did blood come gushing out but unbelievable pain filled my entire hand & up my arm. Did I just share too much? Anyway, enough with the blood and gore, after I got things under control and determined that I didn't need stitches (thank goodness because I wasn't prepared to go to the hospital....i hadn't straightened my hair today or put on any makeup...,but i did have on clean underwear) I realized how stupid of an idea it was to do what I did and I guess that's what I get and now my whole left knuckle hurts like a booger....

OMG, I have tried to do that but I couldn't get my stickles unclogged. Hope your healing!! Next time don't try to embellish with blood! No matter how much you love Lorrie and want to make her birthday page extra special.

Hey, FYI...a safety pin works well for this. Do you want me to send you one to keep in your bag?
Ha

HOLY OUCH! I was wincing just reading this! I too love stickles and sometimes have the clogging problem. But I've found a needle or a less sharp needle works better. I don't like to bleed either so I try to take precautions.

Ohhh! I have a habit of using my needle tool on Stickles...usually I end up with the cover popping off and glittery glue all over!

I use a big ole sewing needle here at home.
Remember the time I posted the PSA on my blog about using an exacto knife as a toothpick? I stabbed myself in the lip. DEEP.
See, scrapbook supplies are dangerous!
