{sharing is caring} how I almost lost my finger

This post could have about 32 titles:
-wreath wrath
-how to make a wreath in 23 days {literally}
- {glue}gun shy
-reason #761 I am not Martha

But, I thought the loss of a finger would sum it all up {smiles}.

I found this amazing yarn wreath tutorial
usually don't never do projects. 
I mean I would love to but with babies & painting,
you know...
However, back on December 26th
my thoughts were, 
"I can do this in a week before I start painting again".
Go ahead, laugh with me.
My thoughts 23 days later are,
"Good things take time".

A few things I will share with you:
-Danielle's tutorial was great 
& she will answer any questions you have, 
just email her.
-Mr.C almost lost his life because I left the unfinished wreath within his reach and he dragged it around the living room by the skein of yarn 
(yeah it's my first time using the word "skien").
-I have fallen in love with felt. 
Be prepared to see it again and again and again.
-I dropped a piece of strawberry topping 
from a piece of cheesecake and spilled a drink on my wreath. 
A girl gets hungry being crafty.
-On the night I had 85% of the wreath wrapped 
I had a nightmare that Mr.C unraveled it entirely.
-I almost lost a finger last night when I was completing my wreath and hot gluing on the flowers 
{see scene of the accident pictured above where the glue dripped and I got burned}.
-If you burn yourself with hot glue here is how to treat it.
-Michael's has yarn on sale and a 40% off coupon this week 
so you could make this wreath for under $5; I did.

The End.
