2010 Craft Bloopers Winner…
“When my daughter was very young, just walking really, she came up to me whining and shaking her hand. I look and almost had a stroke when I saw she had somehow found and opened some crazy glue! Without thinking I went to grab it and you know it…I was stuck to the glue which was stuck to her. I had to think for a second “ok, now what do I do?” LOL I decided nail polish remover was my best bet and managed to get it open and poor a little on and work to get us unstuck. It was a 3 stooge’s moment, but I was so grateful she didn’t get it in her eyes. I thought the house was thoroughly baby-proofed, but I was wrong! I’m grateful for the happy outcome.”
2009 Craft Bloopers Winner…
“A friend and I had organized a scrapbooking day to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. We called our event the ‘Crop for a Cure’. I was working on a small thank you card for one of our sponsors of the event. I had all the right papers, and stamps and inks, even embellishments. I was happily assembling each piece (between various event interruptions) and then came time to write my message inside the card. I was drawing each word out in a beautiful curly script. Each letter fell into place: ‘Thank You for Supporting the Cr…’ but then; the swirl of my ‘o’ in the word ‘crop’ turned down instead of up and suddenly I was thanking people not for their support of an enjoyable day of scrapbooking, but for a crass bodily function that apparently had mythical healing powers. My friends will never let me forget the day they attended the ‘Crap for a Cure’.”
