{when it says "tap"...don't squeeze!

Okay, okay. I wasn't sure I was going to share this, but then I saw kinseywilson was brave enough to post about her little accident HERE on the SC forums. I figured... well, these little things probably happen to everyone right...right?

So, yesterday I picked up some new goodies here....and had my TSM & SC kits ready to play...
I was hopin to make some place cards for a holiday brunch I am hosting next week and maybe add a tutorial to my blog while doing so.

K...see that awesome little bottle of Jenni Bowlin Malted Milk Paint Dobber...here's how the directions read:
Shake well before use. Invert dabber, tap repeatedly onto scrap paper to begin flow. Dab onto surface.
So me being me...it wasn't coming fast enough, so I SQUEEZED...maybe too hard.
It resulted in this...

and this...

and yes, this...

Wonderful! And yes, I was looking right at it when the lid flew completely off!
From there, I cleaned it off of my walls, the new carpet, my clothes, hair, and face. And only after my hubby realized that it was going to come out of the carpet okay, was he laughing at me.

K~ Your turn! What scrappy accident has happened to you lately?

Oh I laughed hystarically when I saw the pic of the paint all over your face!! I had a similar mishap with paint...I had unscrewed the lid of one of my acrylic paints to pour it into a bowl, forgot about an hour later that the lid was off, like we all do I went to grab the paint to use it again and began shaking to mix up the oil a bit and splat!!! it shot across my face, clothes, floor, scrap desk, and all the way across the room and down the wall! WOW, I must not know my own strength!! :)

That is SO FUNNY! My mishap happened while wallpapering - if that counts. I had a cut strip rolled out on my kitchen table to glue. I used my full dishsoap bottle and an empty decorator Coke bottle (the glass kind) to hold the corners at the far end down. As I moved around the table, I picked up my yard stick from the floor to avoid tripping over it - and managed to swing it into the Coke bottle - sending it smashing to the kitchen floor. While sweeping up the glass, my broom handle caught the dishsoap bottle knocking it down - and well, you guessed it...glass mixed with dishsoap now! By the time I'd cleaned up the hazard my glue had dried *sigh*
