The other day my mother wanted to kill me for reconstructing an old shirt that DIDN'T fit her anymore into a cute top that would flatter her.

Maybe she was holding onto it for when it would fit again? Though if it's better than it was before....   Is she over it yet?

She probably just didn't like you doing it without asking.  That would bother me too, someone just going into my closet and reconstructing clothes.  It's like stealing, even though you meant well.

Yeah, now that I think of it this way, that is probably why she got mad.

After she calmed down she said she liked it better now than before, even when it fit her so its alright now.

We had a coal stove when I was a kid. We used to save all of our crayon ends, put them in a soup can and put them on the stove to melt them and make crayon 'cakes'. Do you know what burned crayons smell like, when you accidentally tip them over into the hot stove? Ick.

My husband's adventured with wax were a little more adventurous. It was the 70's, and he'd gotten a candle-making kit for Christmas. His mom said she'd help when she got home from work (she was a teacher, and would have gotten home right after he did) but he and his friend decided to get set up early. So they put *all* of the paraffin in the only pan they could find to fit and turned the heat all the way so it would hurry up and melt. (You see where this is going, I'm sure. Cheesy) Not only did it melt, but it went up in a huge rush of flame. Hubby says they didn't panic-they were Boy Scouts! So they dumped water on it, which did put the fire out, but also splattered hot wax *everywhere*, including on the ceiling.

My MIL says she knew there was a problem when both kids met her in the driveway when she got home.  Roll Eyes The boys scrubbed the heck out of the kitchen (for *days* to hear Hubby tell it) but in the end, they had to redo the kitchen. It wasn't until fairly recently that MIL fessed up-they'd been planning on redoing the kitchen anyway. The wax job just hurried things along!

My mum never crafted (the poor soul) i however loved drawing
on the floor of my closet, graffiti-ing the side of the house
with bug spray (still clear as day after numerous cleanings and about
seven years), and of course listening to my mum cooking advice. My poor
burned pancakes. Why did she say add a cup of chocolate chips i can
never get them to not burn that way. Cry

The very first thing I ever sewed was a top out of an "ugly" striped top my mother used to wear. God bless her. She never even told me she was mad about me cutting up her (what I know now was her favourite) top until years later. She was happy and proud that I had made something for myself.

I don't recall having any crafty mishaps as a kid. My parents (my whole family actually) were really supportive of my crafty nature, buying me kits and supplies for birthdays and such. I never gave myself a bad haircut, though I did use eyeshadow to paint myself and my brother up as Ninja Turtles. Mom thought it was hilarious Tongue When I discovered my dad's old camo cream-stick from when he was in the military, it made the Ninja Turtle game even better!

I do distinctly remember when I was about 3.5 years old I somehow thought it would be a good idea to thoroughly cover a Glow Worm in cold cream. My brother was still an infant and I think I saw my mom slather it on his bum and thought my Glow Worm could use some Tongue She was less than impressed because she couldn't get it all off! I was actually pretty ashamed about ruining a perfectly good toy, even though mom was annoyed and sad, not mad. Or maybe because she was annoyed and sad... I was always really careful with my toys after that. Well, except for the GIJoe who's leg elastic broke. Mom couldn't figure out how to fix him (and she tried!) so bro and I buried him in the yard in a little toilet-paper-tube coffin. He's still under the cedar tree somewhere.

I never did anything too too bad, but one year I tried to do something with a Christmas ornament and ended up messing it up and hiding it under my bed for like a year .It was one that was covered in string (not even a fancy one, the kind you get in a 12-pack at Wal-mart) and all the string came off. I was convinced that I could put it all back on.
