Rachel,
Love the quote at the bottom of you post. Read it to my husband and he really laughed. He understands, though, as his hobby is woodworking. Not only are his tools more expensive, when he makes a mistake, it's hard to joke that "It's just exotic wood," but I can say, "It's just designer paper." Sounds like we are both rubber cement fans.

What an idiot! Some nice card stock had red wine droplets and splashes. I guess I could have kept them for artistic design, but I didn't think of that!
Gillian, I once had to pass back papers to my students with spagetti sauce stains on them. That's what I get for multitasking through supper.

I somehow managed to bump the powder pal and went to grab it with the same hand that was holding the running heat tool, blowing full speed. Needless to say my entire stamp room looked like the inside of a snow globe in about 2 seconds. Between the fact that the EP container was turning over and the heat tool blowing it everywhere I had a beautiful shimmer over furniture, carpet, my table, and me.

I'm still convinced that sometimes when I sneeze it looks like fairy dust hitting the tissue.
I am laughing my head off at the visual of your snow globe room! I can say from experience that you will never be able to clean up all the glitter!
