It hurts. Believe me.

I clipped one of my nails way back because it got caught on something and ripped, which was painful enough. When I was hot gluing for another craft this morning, I managed to get hot glue on the exposed, raw part of my skin that I had just clipped back my fingernail from.

Ow. It still hurts.

You know what also hurts? Vinegar in a hangnail. I was tie-dyeing with egg dye and vinegar this past weekend and I forgot about a hangnail I had-and I went to wring the shirt out. The vinegar/egg dye got in the hangnail-and boy, did it ever hurt!!  Cry So yeah, that stuff really hurts. =/

This makes me wince, a lot.

I was using hot glue today to make decorative hair grips, I'm very pleased to say I did not damage myself. Cheesy

A note to brides to be either invest in a low temp glue gun or ask your MOH to do the hot gluing for you the week before the wedding.  My girlfriend did it with a High temp and burned the heck out of her fingers and was in pain on her wedding day from the burns and not to mention that the burns were not too attractive for pictures.

glitter me this...
