So let's say that you make reclaimed crayons using a cute little plastic ice cube tray with heart shapes in it. And let's say that you do this project in the oven, because the plastic ice cube tray is totally fine as long as you keep the oven temp to 200 degrees or less. Totally fine, yes, totally fine.

However, do not turn off the oven and then leave the plastic ice cube tray with half-melted crayons in it, thinking, "Ha! I'll save energy by letting the crayons melt as the oven cools down! I am so eco!" Don't do this, because you will forget about the ice cube tray. The next day, you will make sugar cookies with your toddler. You will preheat the oven. Later, as you're rolling out the dough, you will hear a bang and acrid smoke will begin to pour from the oven throughout the house. You'll have to wake the baby from her nap, flee outside with everyone, and sit in the yard while you call your husband on the cell and explain that he has to come home from work because the oven is on fire and if you have to breathe acrid smoke it will probably contaminate your breastmilk.

I really had a hankering for sugar cookies, too.

It is a good thing that everyone made it outside ok and that nothing other than the oven caught on fire.

I was preheating the oven one day.  I opened the oven door to find my heating element had broken and was now dripping molten metal all over the floor of the oven.  It was a good thing that we were moving out of that place when it happened.

I'm glad everyone made it out ok and nothing else burned. After saying that I had to snicker. That is something I would totally do. I forget everything, especially when it comes to the oven. I now open the oven look in, then turn the oven on.

Aww, glad no one was hurt!  I must say I too am guilty of leaving things on and in the oven....like the time I tried to make soup, and thought I'd get on the computer while I waited for the water to boil...and then came upstairs to find all the water evaporated, the handle smoking...

Craftster needs you!

Found a Ninja Turtle in the Oven this morning when I was about to make a breakfast cassarole. Alas, poor Leonardo, we knew him well.  Wink

I will have to say I am very happy you and your children are all ok.

I was pre heating my oven once and open it to find out that my genious fiance (ex now) had put the candle lighter in there! Talk about an almost desaster!

Oh, sure -- everyone can relate. "I've done THAT before!" But don't you all realize the real tragedy in all this?  SHE STILL HAS NO SUGAR COOKIES!!

Oh, the humanity!
