Have You Ever Had "One Of Those Days" ???

I was so excited, I had planed on posting a tutorial today. I was going to feature 2 Etsy shops, using the items I bought from them.
It was going to be a tutorial with resin.
I bought the cutest brooches from one Etsian and awesome clip art from another Etsian.
It is clip art which included Agatha Christie - I love Agatha Christie!

I prepared the clip art, brooches and resin.
The first 2 rules when using resin are: 1. work in a well ventilated area 2. COVER YOUR WORK SURFACE.

Guess who didn't cover their work surface! When I went downstairs to retrieve my awesome brooches, 2 were stuck to my dining room table. And...when I say stuck - I mean stuck!!!
You can see in the pictures where I have tried to pry them off the table.
Notice, there is no table cloth. That's right, I poured resin right on my bare wooden table.

I think I just may leave these brooches on the table (like I have any choose right now) to remind me to cover my work surface.

Stepping away from crafting, I decided to catch up on some ironing.

The first thing I did was knock the iron off the ironing board. The water in the iron splattered everywhere. Plus, it came very close to hitting Rosie, our husky. Rosie ran out of the room like her tail was on fire and I haven't seen her since.

Cynthia is getting new tires for her truck. They are on order and are suppose to come in today. If the tire place can install the tires today, she wants me to ride along. I am not sure that is a good idea. With my luck today I suspect all 4 tires will fall off on our way home.

Once I took pictures of my craft disaster, I promptly lost my camera. It took me an hour to find it. It was in my craft room, I never leave my camera in the craft room.

So, this has been my day so far. I will post the resin tutorial soon.
Now if you will excuse me, I am going back to bed, pull the blanket over my head and pray the tires don't come in.


  1. Oh man, that sucks! I know just how you feel - I think you have the right to go back to bed:) I look forward to your tutorial!
