When I was in primary school, I was into making these weird glue things, which involved squeezing craft glue that dried clear onto a hard plastic surface, then sprinkling loads of glitter on to it. I'm not sure why I made these, but anyway. I'm kind of clumsy, so I practically had my nose touching the plastic surface, I was so close. That was when I discovered I was extremely allergic to glue. That was fun.

I did that too! I still do, sometimes.

I don't anymore, I like being able to breathe!  Roll Eyes

i had the most brilliant idea when i was a little kid...i LOVED barbies but we didn't always get all the accessories so my sister and i ended up making do with what we had or using stuff around the house. anyway, the big thing we never got was clothes. so on one of my new barbies i took out the "washable" markers and thought i could just color on an infinite variety of clothes!! it would be so great!!  Cheesy Cheesy except that they don't wash off rubber or the plastic midsections. i even drew on blue sunglasses!  Grin god was it funny but my mother was furious, i don't think she ever bought me another barbie thing after that!!

I was gluing teeny little rhinstones onto something (I think it was a spork...don't ask), and I would put down a drop of glue, set the tube down, lick my finger, then pick up and place a rhinestone. 

You all can see where this is going, right? 

I wound up getting a spot of superglue on my finger, and licking that very same finger, thus supergluing my tongue to itself. Then I ran around the house screeching in a voice no one but my mother could understand, and she couldn't translate for anyone else because she was laughing so hard she was crying. 

I had to brush my tongue for about 45 minutes before it felt even close to normal again.  Blech.

this wasn't so much a stupid crafty moment, as a childhood story but oh well...... when my little sis was born i was about 2, and i got rlly rlly jelous of her.... I decided it would be a good idea to paint my face using my printing inks, so i covered my entire face with dark blue ink, permanent dark blue ink. According to my mum, my face had a bluey hue for about 5 weeks afterwards.....

I am a stupid crafty moment Cheesy
Let's see...  I think my favorite is the fact that I will ALWAYS sew something backwards on whatever I'm working on.  It is has more than 2 pieces, you can guarantee somethin' is gonna go on backwards.
Buying supplies for a specific project and then totally botching it - I'm way good at that, yup.

That is soooo cute.  Grin

My nephew has always been artistic. Very good at it too. One day his mom went down to the mailbox at the end of the driveway and left him sitting on the couch. his baby brother, (3 months at the time) was asleep. When mom got back to the house son 1 was still sitting in the same position in front of the TV, but son 2 was screaming his head off. She went to pick him up and found he was sporting a Hitler type mustache and a scraggly goatee...in sharpie. It took quite a while to dissappear. The older one still loves to draw facial hair on his men in drawings.... Grin

*sweatdrop* Okay lets just say I was bored. VERY bored. Well, I decided to make a stencil (this was today) for a christmas card. Well, being the idiot I am, thought "Hey! It'd be fun to try and use nail polish! It'll be easy  Cool" So, I got to painting it with the nail polish. After, I removed the stencil, and looked at my ruined creation. With a sigh, I discarded it.

This happened two hours ago. I can still smell the nail polish, and I can no longer walk in a straight line, or properly. My hands can't hold onto things either. And to add onto that, I feel like I'm going to throw up, and faint at the same time.

Anybody else had a "genius"  Roll Eyes idea?


..rofl. ohgosh.

well. When I was five I superglued my fingers together because I was trying to fix a hole in my sleeve.
the emergency room had a right laugh. Cry

Remember about 15 years ago when Puffy Paint came out and everything everywhere just had to be covered in puffy paint designs? Well I took that a little too far. 
The nozzles  get clogged up fairly easily if you don't store them correctly, which my mother never did, which made a recipe for disaster.
I was helping my sister make a T-Shirt for Preschool, using said puffy paint, for her teacher.  She was only 3 so I was recruited to help her out.
She wanted to draw an apple on the shirt, but the red was all plugged up.  Instead of cleaning out the clog I thought I could just squeeze it till the gunk popped out.  Well it did........ but I didn't realize how hard I was squeezing I guess because  *SWPPPPPPPPZZZZ* out came the clog..... and the rest of the paint, all over the ceiling! The nozzle popped out of the bottle (designed that way so you could take it out and clean it, DUH me)  which bent back my thumbnail way low, and that hurt like a MOFO.  It took about 3 hours to clean off the paint, and  it left a nice pink spot on the ceiling. About a week later we found red spots in the wicker lampshade above the table, and on the china hutch.

My biggest botch was a trivet made from wine corks.  I bought a piece of board to use as the base, glued all the corks together, and let it dry.  It was a little uneven, but I thought it was cool.  I stashed it on top of the toaster oven.

The next time I used the oven, all the glue melted, and the trivet became permanently attached to the top of the toaster oven.  I guess the glue hadn't completely cured, because it only melted that one time.

I discovered the problem by reaching for the trivet and jerking the whole toaster oven off the counter onto the floor.  That toaster oven kept working for years and years and years after that.
