Wanna laugh ? read on...................... yesterday was a disaster, they say things happen in 3's and they also say if its gonna happen well then its gonna happen to Susie !!
Yesterday started like any other day in the Sugar house hold but little did I know how much chaos I was to cause in just one day !!!
First off I had a bath and slightly over filled it so once I had got in the water level was teetering at the very brim of the tub, I stayed still until a little had passed the over flow and I though I was safe, but made a fatal error in my judgement .............as my shoulders relaxed into the lovely warm water and I rolled over onto my front (doing what can only be described as my impression of Daryl Hannah's Madison the mermaid character from the movie Splash!!) I slipped and a huge wave of water engulfed my bathroom soaking the carpet and everything in sight, Luckily I wasn't hurt and not a drop of water seeped through the ceiling, double lucky as my craft desk, laptop and stash lives directly below.....phew!! close call , but I tell you that wave that flew from my bath was big I'm sure I even heard Steve McGarrett from Hawaii Five-o shout "book'em Danno" as people rushed for their surf boards !!! lol
After all that drama I played it safe and spent the afternoon entertaining Woody, late afternoon Woody got bored with my company and went off to watch TV so I though yes time on my own "Craft Time !!" so I went over to where I store all my lovely craft goodies dropped a pot of Prima flowers all over the floor I bent over from the waist to pick them all up and suddenly felt dizzy what happened next happened in slow motion (for me anyway) I lost my balance and felt myself falling forward in a bent over position, it was one of those moments like you see in the cartoons and I felt myself screaming "WOOOOOOoooooooo" by the time Garry came running in to see what had happen I was sitting in the middle of piles and piles of stash that I had pulled off the shelves on my way down, luckily again I hadn't hurt myself only my pride !! and a bit of squashed stash !! he he
After the events of the day I decided I would stay at my desk all evening and craft after all not much could happen there now could it .....................or could it !!?
I settled down to make a card for the Any one for Anya Challenge with this weeks sketch over at the Stamp with fun challenge I was almost finished ..... all the colouring was done all the layering, all the stitching finished, everything in place I just needed to add a button brad to the corner to complete the sketch, now the other day I had bought these lovely stitched blossom button brads by imaginisce they are beautiful and you only get 8 in a pack and they are not cheap so when one broke last night I thought I can't waste it I will have to fix it, the button part had only come apart from the metal 2 legged brad part so I though "I know super glue will fix that" .............
................. I found the super glue tube but the screw lid was glued tight and I couldn't open it, so what happened next was my third catastrophe of the day ................you may have all ready guessed what I did next ...or you're probably thinking "No she can't be that stupid" well if your thinking that your wrong coz I am !! yes I snipped the base of the super glue tube with my smallest pair of scissors , and that's when the slow motion scene snuck in again as I recall the super glue spurting out of the small cut in the tube as the little blades of the scissors nipped the metal tube it went all over my almost finished work of art , my scissors my A3 cutting mat not to mention my fleece I was wearing and ME !! I tried not to touch anything, with fear of sticking to it, but today I have no finger prints as the glue still covers my crispy little hands I told myself I was lucky it could have been worse as the glue had missed my eyes and face and my beloved life support machine (AKA my laptop !!).
So after clearing up what I could I decided to call it a night and said goodbye to what had been a disastrous day and when I got up this morning I decided to start this card over again, and although I ruined my A3 cutting mat I live to craft another day !! lol
