Beware the dangers of scrapbooking.

If you are not sure that you can handle the physical dangers and risks of the craft, don't do it!! Please be careful and weigh out the risks. I didn't and now here I sit INJURED from my beloved craft. "How?" You ask....Good question. Today I was sweeping up the floor after making a mess during some late night scrapbooking session I was holding last night. I was sweeping barefoot, mind you. (mistake #1) Anyway while sweeping, I felt a sharp pain in my right heel, but thought I'd continue sweeping and see what the pain was later. (mistake #2) One more step down and .....OUCH!! I dropped the broom and looked at the bottom of my foot. It was beautifully decorate with an adorable mint-green flower-shaped BRAD! Yes BOTH prongs went deep into my heel and the brad lay flat against my skin. Again....OUCH!!! I jerked it out and the throbbing began. No blood, mind you, and now the pain has subsided, but I just thought it funny that the least dangerous of hobbies has caused me an injury......gee, wonder what would happen if I went bungee jumping!!


  1. Ouch! I will keep that in mind! Hope your foot is better soon! Who knew brads were dangerous! That was fast thinking pulling it out! I probably would have kept in in there freaking out!

  2. ha ha ha thank you for sharing such a funny story!!! :)

  3. I blog hopped from Stacey's to have a look at you. Soooo sorry about your foot, just the kind of thing that would happen to me too, despite the warning lol. hugs lin
