Seriously???? Is nothing going to get my face to stop spewing blood? This isn't good. So, I look for alcohol under the sink. Yes, it will likely sting, but it should work, right? No alcohol under the sink. And OF COURSE I completely forgot about the first aid kit that contains alcohol swabs. So..what's a girl to do? Well, there's vodka in the freezer.....hmmmmmmmm......
Yup. I went to the freezer, pulled out a bottle of Absolut Mandarin and attempted to use THAT to stop the bleeding. Yes, it stung a little, but not NEARLY as much as I thought it would. Rather disappointing, actually...very UNlike the movies. Just say'n.
Did it work, you ask? Of course not. That would have been too easy. You know...vodka is ALWAYS the easy way out, right? No? Hmmm....I didn't think so either, but apparently, my morning fun still had no end in site. I was seriously wondering if this was just going to bleed all day long and then began considering how much blood loss that would actually be....HA!
Styptic Stick. Do you own one? If not, go to the pharmacy and buy one! I had forgotten about it until this last desperate moment, but then I finally grabbed it from the medicine cabinet and, after three applications, the bleeding finally stopped. Whew! It was rather insane, I tell you! But, anyway, that's why I may have shown up to work smelling a bit like Absolut Mandarin. Just say'n.
Now...onto my workspace...this is a phone shot, so I had to lighten it up a bit and it is still kinda dark, but it shows my fun desk right now!
You are looking at a stack of some fresh new Skipping Stones Design stamps that I am super excited to play with and there *might* be a set for me to giveaway in that pile, too. Hmmmm.....something to consider. You also see some fun goodies from Creative Impressions that will be in my work soon AND a couple of sketches that I already completed, but may do again this week 'cause I kinda like 'em. Just say'n.
And here is a little card that I wanted to share, as well. I stitched the accent with variegated embroidery floss to get the flow of color and then used two ink colors to get a nice ombre type look on the sentiment.
Just a pretty little Congratulations card. I am linking this up to the My Time To Craft Quite White challenge!
So, that's all for today. Although, I would imagine that vodka, a pink cuteness card, and my crazy workspace is quite enough. HA! Happy Wednesday!
