Happy Friday everyone! After this crazy week, I thought it would be a good idea to share some warm thoughts, so this week I have a Leisure Arts Rectangle Loom Set to give away.

Every Friday we’ll post a giveaway on Think Crafts and all you have to do is comment on the blog post answering the question of the week. We’ll pick the winners and contact them via email. Deadline is midnight tonight. One entry per person please.

Question of the week: What’s the biggest mess you’ve made while crafting?

    The worst mess I ever made while crafting was as a child. One summer when I was 6 years old I got a pretty pink baby doll pajama set with a top and matching panties. I loved it so much I wore it all day too.
    I was a bit of a Tom boy because my brother was the closest to my age, three years. We had Army helmets and he decided we needed to paint them camouflage. We took our time painting them, and when we got done and went in the house my sister pointed out that I had green, black and brown paint smudges all over my pretty pajamas. I cried so much and of course the paint didn’t come out in the wash.

    That’s hard to say…I tend to clean up later when I’m in the creative zone. Though there have been many messes over the years. I’ll have to say spilling hodgepodge during a project was hardest to clean up.

    My biggest mess is when picking out fabric for a quilt from my stash. I pull out piece after piece, lay it out and try to decide. There’s always one that’s not exactly right so go through more. When done just push it all aside and start cutting and sewing. At some point I look at all of the piles and have to refold and put it all away. I have solved this problem by folding fabric around 8.5 by 11 comic book boards. I am now able to stack upright like mini fabric bolts and lay the boots side by side to choose.

    Scrapbooking causes the biggest messes for me. I manage to cover my work area with paper scraps, photo trimmings, glitter and embellishments. I practically have to sweep the desk off when I’m done! Then there is the floor which is littered with the same! Did I mention all the stuff stuck to me? Lol! I am not the neatest but the final product is always worth the mess.

    Oh my! I’ve made plenty of messes, but I’d say it was getting gilded flakes all over. That stuff is hard to contain. I stupidly placed my brush inside the box so that when I needed it, it’d been in the perfect spot to find it. Well, not so! I picked up that brush and flakes went everywhere! Even my cat wasn’t amused as it went flying here and there, landing on the table, floor, and on me!

    Hot glue strings every where from gluing while trying to paint crazy paper mess along with glue and paint all over

  7. Cheryl Hill

    I was beading in the living room with delicas, which are very little beads. The cat decided to jump up on me at that time and beads went everywhere!!! I tried to vacuum them up but they were so little, LOL!!!!

    I had a box of yarn stashed a way for awhile and he had a musty smell. so I decided i was going to wash it. I knew i had to take special care to make sure not too much unraveling took place. Well needless to say my special care didnt work! I had the biggest yarn vomit i have ever seen. Lucky for me I am one of those that can sit for hours and unravel i find it relaxing and comforting.

    I started making fabric flowers last Spring. I usually put pearls in the center, different sizes at times. Those tiny little teeny pearls are hard to handle, but I tried. Pearls eventually landed everywhere, even had a few glued to my work table and they were all over my floor too. Very pretty look, but was a mess to clean up. I now know that a lot of patience is needed with these pretty pearls.

    I did a glitter project with my granddaughter last year using lots of different colors of glitter. Oh, my!! Glitter is messy enough…..but combine it with a grandkid…and my whole house ended up looking magical with bits of sparkle on EVERYTHING!!! lol…
    My granddaughter really enjoys her knitting loom, so I had to enter for the chance to win some other shapes!

    I tend to have our dining room table covered when I am crafting as things pile up and I usually gets more materials than I need in case I won’t have enough so it spills over and on the floor.

    I think it was accidentally spilling the container of paint over and not realizing it. It had spread all over everything before I even noticed! What a clean up! I was much more careful after that, for sure!

  13. Bessie Phillips

    My very first quilt! after having it quilted, it was time to put on the binding. I was in a hurry because I was entering it in the state fair. My last step was removing all the thread ends. That was sure a lot of snipping. The person who quilted did not remove hers. The quilt, the floor, the furniture and I was covered. thankfully I had some lint rollers! I think I went through 2 sets of them. Wow!

    Hmmm… the biggest of many probably a batch of cold press homemade soap with lye that just turned into a loaf foam like something ???

    It was just the other day….I was making some earrings and I toppled over everything that I had layed out to make them.

  16. Theresa Peetsch

    Making a floor length veil with thousands of hand sewn beads and sequins. After three days in the sewing room, I decided to join my husband watching tv. The lid came off the bead container as I was coming down the stairs. My goodness, we are still finding beads and sequins in corners 3 years later.

    Somehow, whenever I touch yarn, it gets entangled. Just two weeks ago I found four different hanks of yarn, in the night, somehow reached out to each other. I had a choice of either cutting them apart or untangling. I did a little of both so as not to waste too much or ruin my chances of finishing the heart I was attempting to crochet for my oldest daughter. I figure that since I missed Valentine’s Day I can aim for her birthday in April.

    Getting glitter everywhere on a project I was doing as a child. The glitter was everywhere and even me

  19. Judys

    absolutely every time I do a project I think it’s going to be easy to keep it contained and organized, and every time I prove myself wrong………’s a disaster; but it’s fun and I can always clean it up and start another one.

    I was helping some school-age kids make Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer ornaments, by swirling floor wax and brown glitter in clear glass balls. Of course there were several “required accidents” of filled ornaments toppling off the table in slow motion… I still have some sparkly brown streaks on a corner of my refrigerator as a reminder of crafting gone crazy!

  21. Susan P.

    When I make cards, I end up with the whole table full of supplies and tools, including the paper cutter. Paper scraps get on the floor and of course, the cats have to jump up on the table and really make a mess since they love paper.

  22. Laury Simms

    The worse mess I ever made was making ornaments with pine cones and glitter. We were kids and my grandmother got some really large pine cones from someone. She let us kids take glue and glitter to decorate them. I was only 6. I got tire of using a spoon to put the glitter on with. So I used the bowl that she put the glitter in and dumped the whole thing on one pine cone. It made such a mess. Glitter went everywhere. That pine cone shed glitter forever. It continued to make a mess until I think my mom finally threw it away.

  23. Rose

    Made Easter baskets with the kids one year. Used yarn dipped in craft glue and wrapped around inflated balloons. We put the in the tub to dry. They stuck to the tub! Must have been some strong glue cause even after years of scrubbing it’s still there.

  24. Judy K

    Cutting out squares for a quilt–they ended up different sizes because I didn’t have a form to follow exactly. My aunt told me she had to recut them all.

  25. Micki

    Glitter mesh!!! By the time I finished a wreath, I was surprised there was any glitter left on it. It was everywhere!!!

    I have been crafting for many decades so there have been some terrible messes.
    I made little circle skirts for a Christmas dance show my girls were in. I thought they would be really cute with maribou feathers around the hem and on headbands. By the time I had made all the groups skirts and cut up those feather strips the feathers were floating and flying. I did not realize how those little feathers keep appearing long after you have finished the project and cleaned the area up. For weeks feathers kept appearing
    Another mess was when I dropped a tray of open glitter bottles. What a mess that was and bits of glitter appeared everywhere for weeks even though I thought I cleaned it up well.
    Another mess was when I decided to seal some ribbons with a wood burner when I was tired My hand cramped up and I dropped the tool and burned a hole in my nightgown, housecoat, the runner under the table and then it scorched the flooring under the runner. While trying to catch it before it fell I also managed to burn my hand, A lesson learned was never craft when you are tired!

    probably when I was making SWAPs and I was cutting out shapes from fun foam. I ended up with tiny pieces of foam all over. and with the static it was very hard to clean it all up

  28. Teresa

    I make messes all the time because one of my arts and crafts hobbies is acrylic paint pouring so I can make a real mess with the paints.
