Default You Know You are a Complete Idiot when...

...you fire up your heat gun with it pointed down at your embossing tray...TWICE...and there is dry powder in there. Oh yes, it looks a lot like Christmas on my craft table right now.

Please...I beg of you...share your best (as my kids would say) "Duh" moments with me. It would make me feel better!

Off to grab some paper towels...shaking my head in disbelief...and the vacuum...

Oh, I feel for you. I know that was a mess! I've dumped EP all over myself a number of times. I even managed to get it down my shirt once.

I've dropped ink pads on my lap several times-always face down, and always a dark color. Surprisingly though, they all washed out.

One time I was opening a pack of cardstock with some really dull scissors and like a dummy, I was pulling the scissors towards me. I stabbed myself right below my eye!

I've had lots of "Duh" moments, but fortunately I can't remember most of them right now .

LOL Thanks Ladies! I do feel better!

Emily, holy cow! A stab wound! You certainly win the challenge thus far for "duh" moments!

And Lori, I am so glad to know I am in good company!

My latest "duh" moment was when I was making some of my own glue dots on waxed paper using Aleen's Tack It Over and Over. I carefully put the glue on the waxed paper in neat little rows and then proceeded to put my elbow in it while putting away the glue. Rats!! I remade the glue dots and then carefully put away the glue and moved my stamp set box onto the wet glue dots!!! Sometimes I think it is dangerous to let me out of bed in the morning!

<-------- Cuts out fabric for a quilt and cuts right through her pants!
<-------- Searches and searches for a lemon (from Tart & Tangy) already mounted on a little scalloped circle ready to stick with adhesive on it... I was making a little glassine bag with lemonheads. So I finally give up and make another one when I find it stuck to my sleeve!

I do something boneheaded on a daily basis so you're not alone! DH usually just shakes his head with a tiny smirk.

I just did this last week..I was showing my DD(who is 2 mind you) my D.Diamonds gilitter in a tray and right when she went to lean in to see close I sneezed. Yes, glitter all over her head and face. It could not have been timed more perfect. I laughed so hard I was crying because the look on her face was priceless. She still has glitter stuck to her scalp and in her eyebrows.

I have also done the heat gun towards embossing powder thing. I also spent half an hour searching for a certain piece from a simply scrappin' kit, and DH noticed it was stuck to my sleeve. And don't get me started on all the times I've stamped something upside down!

Just last night I tried the Salted Background technique and actually had inky salt "popping" like popcorn right off of my glossy cardstock. This left me with wet inky salt all over myself and craftroom, later to be tracked around my house while stuck to the bottom of my slipper!

Was making a polyshrink piece and dropped on my stampin scrub. Finished heating - note to self: scrub is made of polyester. Polyester melts. Duh! So now I have big melted circle on my scrub. It's a good way to show customers what not to do though.

I was cleaning my SU Craft & Rubber Scissors last year with Goo Gone on a folded up paper towel, to get sticky stuff off. Well the scissors are nice and sharp and I sliced the finger that was holding the paper towel. Ouch!!

Same sort of thing yesterday, but with my Fiskars circle cutter (I hate that thing, but don't have the budget for Nesties or really anything else right now). I think it picks up paper dust as the blade gets dull, so I swiped the bottom of it off with my bare hand, right over the blade. I have three band aids, on three fingers of my left hand now. I was so glad DH wasn't home...

Oh, you are all so hysterical! I am literally wiping my eyes. I really needed a laugh today, and I thank you all.

My contribution: I tried heat embossing for the first time, and followed the picture in the SU catty (held my 1x1 scrap with tweezers). Ummm...embosser = HOT. Fingers? Burnt. Now I use kitchen tongs.

I've had several crafting accidents myself. I somehow got my finger caught in my crop-a-dile and had a nice blood blister for a few days. I was forcing some plates thru the CB, let go of the handle for some odd reason, only to have the handle spin backwards at warp speed (thanks to all that torque) and smack me on the wrist, leaving a nice bruise. I've paper-pierced myself, gotten SU ink all over me and the floor because me and the flip-style pads have a love/hate relationship, and tried to use Martha Stewart fine glitter with the ceiling fan going full-force (I was quite the blingster after that fiasco and am still a little sparkly!).

> I'm a disaster waiting to happen.

I was embossing something and holding it with a clothespin to avoid burning myself. While I was embossing, the clothespin flew off the item and nailed me in the face! There was red ep all over my glasses and everywhere else, so it pretty much looked like a crime scene on my craft table!

I mis-measured a background square while mass-producing Christmas cards, and cut about 60 of them before I realized I was using the wrong measurement. What is it the woodworkers say? "Measure twice, cut once!"

I stamped the same word upside down about four times, before finally figuring out that it was mounted on the block upside down in relation to the sticker. No wonder I kept messing it up!

I knew I was an idiot when I broke a knuckle using my cuttle bug.

About 1 1/2 months ago I was preparing for my first class. I was cutting and embossing some rectangles with my nesties and when I went to emboss I had my stack to thick well I was turning it and it swung around really fast and wacked my in the knuckle. MAN that hurt. So I took a piece of thin chip board out and tried again, yep still too thick and wacked my knuckle same spot.

So here I am a month and a hlaf later with a knuckle that is still very sore, who'da thunk my little cuttle bug could break a knuckle?

I had trouble getting used to my 12 x 12 tonic paper cutter. I came down my my thumb nail once. Thank goodness for my nail, I came down on it hard, but wasn't hurt. Another time I was holding my fingers where they were supposed to go but sort of leaned the back of my hand too far out towards the blade and came down on the back of my hand. Small scrape.

I am MUCH more careful with the tonic now.

I've managed to (multiple times) cut myself with my child-proof paper cutter. I always cut myself on the palm of my hand right near my thumb. I don't know how it happens... the blade is completely protected except for where it cuts the paper.
I am an idiot!

Today I definitely pulled a DUH.

I was making a card for my niece. I decide to put ribbon on the front and wrap it around and attach it inside, then line the inside of the card so the ribbon would be hidden where it was glued on. Great, I decide this will look great, I have the ribbon attached, wonderful. I start decorating the paper to line the inside of the card, oh hey wouldn't those flowers look great if I punched out the center so it will show the red cardstock underneath, great. I attach and only then realized that it was now not only showing the cardstock but the ribbon that I originally wanted to cover, hence the need to line the inside of the card.

Having already attached I had to commit to it, it was stuck too hard. DUH what a dummy. I of course showed DD the "never an error, only another opportunity for layering" method. So the card is now weighing a ton because of the 2 layers inside and the 4 layers on the front where I triple matted and pop dotted it. LOL.

What an idiot I am.;

Could you even imagine it??? We'd have to have an ambulance (and maybe the fire dept.) on stand-by!

Besides injuries to my person, my stamping area, and once my dog I've never experienced any of these unfortunate incidents that you ladies speak of.

Perhaps we all (oh yes I mean you all) should join Klutzes Anonymous or something like that.

I also wanted to add my near miss to my cat. My cat was resting on the floor next to my desk to the right of me. I grabbed something on my desk which sent my paper piercer rolling, it rolled off the desk and stabbed into the floor an inch or 2 from my cat. OH MY GOD, thank God it didn't hit him, I'd have been devestated. This one's not so funny. I've now taped a bump on to the side of the piercer so it can't roll anymore.

While making a card for a friend, I was having trouble getting the ribbon to lay the way I wanted it to. So I decided to use super glue to hold it in place since nothing else was working. Needless to say, the card, ribbon, and several layers of skin from my finger tips ended up in the trash can. That stuff sticks quick!

You'd think I would've remembered that after gluing my fingers together while repairing a vase a few years ago... talk about DUH!

Dipping my stamp into Versamark and then right straight into the glitter pot - while demo-ing....that's a sweet one --- lol

They thought it was a NEW way to apply glitter to stamped images.

A little off topic, but get a glass mat for your cutter instead of the self-healing mat. It makes a HUGE difference.

As for silly things that happen, my mom was trying to put together a new SU set at my house one day. She popped out the cut image and then cut the sticker for the wood block. She started putting the sticker on the back of the rubber paper. I stopped her before she did it, then she stuck it to the clamshell box. I started laughing and told her it went on the block (she actually has put lots of these together the right way before). She shook her head and got a little frustrated at first as I'm still laughing and peeling her sticker off the box. After sticking it on the block, I tell her "like this, remember?" She started laughing with me, then finished the other ones with no problems.

IL - thank you. I do have a glass mat, but can't seem to figure out how to keep my paper from turning with the cutter. Seriously, I can't stand my circle cutter. Or at least I can't stand the combination of me and the circle cutter.

Do you have any advice?

I absent mindedly put my heat gun down on my craft desk a little too close to myself and leaned on it with my arm. I branded myself. D'oh!

I've also stabbed myself with my paper piercing tool more than once.

Good to know I'm in good company!

I have a duh moment but not really stamp related but duh all the same.My hubby and I were installing cabinets in our laundry room as we installed one side my hubby notices that the light fixture was close to the door and says Don't open the door to wide!! While he was working on the other cabinet I decided to fill it up opened one side no problem barely opened the door and the bulb cover flew off instinct said grab it so I held it to me like a football and yes the light was on and yes I got a nasty nasty burn ..Girls sometimes it is ok to listen to your hubbies!!! Doors are now off..
