This is something that was being discussed on Facebook a while ago. A page I follow (can't remember which one) posted a status saying that she felt like she was now officially a crafter because she had sliced her finger with a scalpel!
This got me thinking... Before I started making nappy cakes I made greeting cards and paper crafts. I think the moment I became a "proper card maker" was when I had an accident with my hot glue gun... Well two accidents actually!
First I stuck two of my fingers together with molten glue. To explain how the second accident happened I will have to show you a photo of my desk. Ha it almost looks tidy in this pic!
Look at the wire basket hanging under my desk, my glue gun is on it (the purple thing!) which is fine when it is turned off... You can probably see where this is going...
So back to the story! I glued my fingers together, swore and put my glue gun onto the wire basket while I unstuck my fingers. Problem is when my glue gun is turned on, glue slowly comes out of the nozzle as it melts, without me having to press the trigger. So the glue dripped out of the gun and fell through the square holes in the basket onto my jeans... So I ended up with burnt fingers and ruined jeans! That was the moment that I decided I was a "proper card maker" and a clumsy idiot!
As for the moment I decided I was officially a nappy cake builder? Thats an easy one! It was the day that I realised that I regularly buy nappies, despite the fact I have no children! Haha =)
So I've shared mine... When did you "officially" become a crafter?
Bye for now,
