Default Purple Hearts for stamping injuries

Who else has war stories about their injuries related to stamping/crafting? Wouldn't it be nice to get a "Purple Heart"? However, since it is crafting, we would have to call it Vintage Violet Heart. Something tells me that craft knives and hot glue will be usual suspects.

My story is that I move kitchen knives to take my card photos and I severly cut one hand (minorly cut the other hand) when I was moving the knives back into place. I thought one was going to drop, and instinct made me catch it akwardly. I now have 6 stitches on the side of my hand. All for the love of card making...

Dropped a brad on the floor in my craft room, didn't wear shoes and guess where the brad went? Into my foot!!! OUCH!!

Two lessons learned - always wear shoes AND pick up the brads you drop WHEN you drop them!!

Nice scar on my hand from a heat gun burn recently. Scrapped knuckles yesterday moving around boxes and reorganizing scrapbook stuff. People see my hands and they thing I work on cars.

Ouch - hope your hand heals quickly!

I had to make a trip to the ER a few years ago because I got distracted and looked away while trimming cardstock for a swap. I was using a rotary cutter and it "jumped the curb" on the acrylic ruler; I wound up nearly slicing off the side of my finger.

So I wound up with a lost afternoon at the ER, 6 stitches, and I still have a dead spot on my finger where the feeling never came back. Oh, and I had to retrim some of the cardstock because, well, it was kinda ruined after that. (eww)

The following weekend my dad presented me with a wood-carver's glove - it's made of kevlar (yup, like a bullet-proof vest) and the rotary cutter won't even knick it. Of course, i have to remember to wear the darn thing for it to be of any use ...

Ahh, sharing misery does make me feel better. I'm beginning to think that this thread title should have been titled "What not to do in your craft room" and "Lessons Learned".

Was moving my six-foot table upstairs for a card night and dropped the stupid thing on my little toe! Broke it. It took almost a year until I could wear regular shoes again. (I'm now very careful when I move furniture!)

I think mine has to be the countless times I have heated my hand while embossing... especially the times Ive decided to emboss while holding the paper in the palm of my hand and the burn caused after... lol

Pinched my boob in the handles of my crop-a-dile.

I also once was carrying my things back upstairs soon after completing a project, and tucked my heat gun under my arm to carry it. My older heat gun with the metal tip that had just been turned off.

Ditto on the Crop-a-dile. I've also pinched my fingers with it, but that wasn't nearly as traumatic.

LOL @ some of your injuries. Had me in hysterics! I got my finger pinched between 2 plates while using my Cuttlebug once. That hurt! I have never been able to use a glue gun without burning a finger. Ever!

There used to be another thread about craft related injuries. I remember one woman saying she was making cards on the kitchen table and had a candle lit. She leaned over the table and lit her hair on fire.

OK ladies, I sincerely apologize but this thread has me laughing my @#$ off. Yes, I admit I do have a sick sense of humor. The boob in the crop-a-dile really took me over the edge. So far the only thing I've experienced is burning my hand while using the heat gun but give me time.......

While not exactly a stamping injury, I will NEVER forget my mother, using the recliner to stand on, to put up a curtain in the window. She caught her foot between the seat and the arm, coming down, and when she pulled her foot out, there was a crochet hook, embedded in her ankle joint. Luckily, a quick trip to the ER, and it was popped out with absolutely no damage to the joint.
(And, when I moved her into a nursing home, I found over twenty crochet hooks under the Lane recliner sofa!)

Ouch! Nice to have boobs big enough to get pinched in your crop-a-dile!
Most of my injuries involve a hot glue gun or my rotary cutter. Not a severe as some of the others... but smarts all the same.

I was sewing and not paying attention, my finger slipped and the needle struck my bone, bent in half and went back out. Hurt like crazy and was suprised that the needle did not break until after it came out.

I was using my old rotary cutter and the blade holder came unlocked and the rotary blade sliced my hand between my ring finger and pinky. 9 stiches at the ER.
I bought me a NEW rotary that the blade could come umlocked on.

I punctured my hand with the point of my scissors. Although the injury was not serious at all, blood oozed out and ruined the time-consuming card I was almost finished with! Needless to say, the injury was far less than the loss of all the work I had put into that card!!

I started laughing so hard at this thread that my husband asked what the joke was. I couldn't tell him until I got myself under control -- then started all over again with the boob in the crop-a-dile! I've never done that but, then again, I have no boobs to speak of.

My biggest owies come from holding paper and using scissors to cut it. I am forever snipping the skin between my thumb and pointer finger. Anything sharp is a danger to me. I cut myself so often that I keep bandaids in the kitchen as well as the bathroom. I usually just put pressure on it, wrap a paper towel around it and go on with life. The only irritating thing is when I drip on my project.

I have hot-glued myself and burned myself when I was distracted. Now that I'm older, I'm having to train myself to keep focused on what I'm doing! You would think I could have developed this skill long, long before now.

And people think sports are dangerous -- come craft with me and I'll show you danger!!

Default Over joyed for Cricuit cartridge

I was coming out of Joanns, showing my sister the new cartridge I just bought and was so excited that I was not paying attention to the curb and I forgot to step down. Well I ended up in the gutter with a broken elbow and had to have surgery and 2 screws put in it. I get reminded on a regular basis--- to look first then talk and walk..LOL

Had had some mishaps (grabbed the front, metal end of a hot heat gun as it was being handed to me), but this one will never happen to a flat-chested gal like me. Sorry, but I had to laugh when I read this (who outside of crafters would even think this possible?), although I also winced knowing how much it must have hurt.

I'm beginning to think that the crop-a-dile should come with a warning label!

I can't compete with that one as far as the pain must have been. I did drop a piercing tool and it stuck in my thigh. That hurt!

Aren't we crafters a bunch! Sorry for all the pain but thanks for the laughs.

I cut the top of my hand twice using my old fashioned guillotine cutter before I learned not to leave the handle up and reach through it.

My poor livingroom rug needs a heart, it has a nice round burn from when I dropped my heat gun.

Sounds a bit familiar. I was reaching for something in my caddy when I stabbed myself with a very thin embossing stylus. When I pulled my hand away, I had the stylus hanging from it. Obviously nothing requiring stitches, but I did have a few choice words to say.

Years ago when I was working in a print shop, I did cut the tip off my finger with an exacto knife, so I've been very careful not to repeat that one when crafting now.

I confess I laughed at the Crop-a-dile, too, but the best boob mishap I've ever heard of was a friend getting her nipple sucked into the vacuum hose when she was vacuuming naked (what's up with that !?!) and it didn't want to let go. I understand that was also very painful.

Thanks for the laugh ladies, I really needed one!

I don't get it either, but I knew another lady that loved to vacuum naked. Hmm... I'm sensing a trend; what is it about people i know anyway? She was a well resepcted bank manager and told us this on a ladies evening out. I guess she was vacuuming one day when her son-in-law let himself into her house and accidentally saw her. That would have been a bit awkward. At least she didn't wound more than her pride.

glad to know that I am not alone in this painful hobby!! Heat guns, super sharp paper trimmer, sharp scissors, brads are my torture instruments. Don't have a crop-o-dile, so don't have to worry about that one.
