Death by Glue Gun.....And a SUPER Surprise!

Well not really...but it sure felt like it...UGH!


Here is the culprit....or should I say the little clear stick that rests inside.  See it hiding in there.  All I was doing was minding my own business...making a little sumthin for Easter and it got me.



It was that green one...that was the one that decided to slip out of my hand right after I put a huge glob of piping hot glue on it...yup you guessed it....my instinct was to grab the little green egg as if it were a fragile thing waiting to hit the counter top and splatter into a million pieces.  OUCH.................




That glue hit my finger and dried faster than ever before.  Why does it not dry that fast when I put my eggs on??  THE PAIN.....

Please let me go through child birth.....it hurt more than that...NOT KIDDING!!  Thank goodness my grandchildren weren't there because I said a few choice words.....All for this lovely.....



It was worth it...I think....

I saw this wreath on a wonderful blog that I so can't remember who...so if you see this "wonderful crafty blogger" I thank you very much.  It looks so pretty on my door...even though I thought I was going to lose my finger *wink*

Now onto my Super Surprise!!

I can't beging to tell you how excited I was to open my email and see that I was a Winner to a give away. 

Last Monday I linked up to Debbiedoos for her Newbies Linky Party!  Thanks so much Debbie...it helps out all us Newbies (or Baby Bloggers as I call me) so much to get to know other blogger and for them to check us out!  While checking out the other Newbies I came across Daniella's beautiful blog "Daniella Hayes Layers of Creativity" She was having a giveaway celebrating her 100 followers...how exciting!  The giveaway included 3 jars covered in chicken wire..the most awesome things ever and a cute little signage that would look really cute in any kitchen!  These lovelies were made by the amazing Erin at Peony Wire Works....she is one talented chick (get it chicken wire...I crack me up) and you need to go check out her blog!

I WON!!  I WON!!

I was yelling to Poppy...come and see!  I don't think he gets it but I LOVE THEM!!

Thank you so much ladies....Can you tell I'm excited??

I will post pics of what I do with the lovlies when they arrive....

Blessings on this Palm Sunday

Sue,
I really hate when that happens!! I used to have those lovely blisters all over my fingers when I would be making crafts like crazy before one of the craft Fairs that I would be participating in! I am convinced that I have no finger prints!!

LOL!!

The wreath looks delightful!!

Hugs,
Debbie

Oh my! That's why I try to avoid the dreaded glue gun. Well, actually it's because I can make a heck of a mess with it. Lots of little glue strings stuck to everything. Hope your finger is healing!
