Default You have to read this thread about eyelets - ROTFL!!!

A friend of mine just emailed this thread to me on 2Peas about a CM consultant and what she had to say about eyelets. It is so funny, I'm crying.

WARNING: Don't drink or eat anything while reading this thread.

So funny! I read all the posts and had a great laugh.
Good way to end the night. I've had a few bad days.
I dislocated my thumb yesterday. It happens to be my right hand too!
It really hurts to stamp but I just have to!!!

Too funny!!

My favorite reply to the thread was: "well I can say there are lots of things in my house that release gas, but my eyelets are NOT one of them!!!"

Are you kidding me! This is so ridiculous! I was dying laughing when I read this. My MIL used to be a CM consultant. She now makes the lumpiest pages I've ever seen, and she'll put anything in her albums as long as they don't touch the pictures...and just think...200 years from now, when nobody really cares anyway...there will be a big green cloud coming from her albums because of all the eyelets....

OMG! That was hilarious!!! I about wet my pants when I read the post about the eyelets excusing themselves... she wanted to know how that was accomplished and her DH/DDs can't figure that one out!

Funniest thing I've read all day!

Thanks for sharing!!

What a hoot! Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to tell DH about the Top Secret stuff, he's in the Air Force.

I will never hammer an eyelet with a straight face again!

I can just see myself at a workshop opening a container of eyelets and having to excuse them in front of all my customers! WHEW! Excuse my eyelets please!

That is just about the funniest thing I've ever read!

I don't understand this CM thing though! Are most CM consultants really like that? None of the ones I know around here do that! In fact, my exCM consultant probably had more contraband in her album than anyone else!

Well my SIL is a CM consultant and she is always rolling her eyes or walking away when we show our fat and full albums that shine with metals! We just tell her that she is jealous because she can't use all of the flashy things because she can't sell them. I guess it's like if we used something that we do not sell at a workshop...what's the point right? If they used eyelets and someone was looking through their album they would direct a sale somewhere else. I think that if they are a scrapbooker...they want it all no matter where they have to buy it!

. . . . . Guys . . . . .
This topic had me rolling, but let's not let this topic degenerate into slamming the way others scrapbook/do business/purchase in other places, etc. Of the over 12,000 that browse splitcoaststampers, there are MANY that use products OTHER than what Stampin' Up! sells. Let's respect them, too, please.

Off the soapbox now. Carry on.

The first thought that came to mind was "is she blonde?" lol This is so funny!. I have heard ppl say some really funny things about stamping and scrapping products in the past and this is just up there with them.

This response had me peeing in my pants!!!!!:

"Do you think that when we are not around the eyelets turn to the people in the photos and say "pull my finger, I dare you" ???"

My husband does this all the time to our kids, and even my 6 year old has started doing it to me!!!

Too funny!!!

NO Not all are like that!! At least I would like to think that I was not like that! Either way I was a CMC for several years and have and always will use CM products BUT I WILL put other products in my albums. My very good friend and CMC introduced me to stampin up when she was asked for an idea for a page and she whipped out her Fun Faces set and tons of ink (classic) and whipped out an awesome page for one of her customers! Point is ..... some take the CM message to extreme and others are more relaxed about it. You just have to remember that they are your albums and not the property of CM or anyone else!!!!
SO hammer way I say!!!

ROFLMBO!!! oh my gosh this was the best out of the original link and all the discussionon this. Now I really have to pee! I am just glad I didn't take a sip of my drink when I read that. My hubby and kids are now taking me away I am sent to the rubber room.
I am afraid tho that the eyelets I just ordered are now going to be deemed "inapropriate" for use.
Oh brother. that thread is way to funny.

Yup...pretty danged funny, for sure!

One woman on there (page 3) was gettin' defensive (what would you do if you didn't have CM to ridicule? maybe get some pages done?) about the whole thing.

It was just too STINKIN funny!
