My friend Chelsie and I get together quite a bit to be crafty and our latest adventure ended up being painfully cute...literally. So we needed 12"-18" metal stars...and we needed them cheap because we wanted 5 each. So we went on a hunt and found that we could get them for $22-$45...so it would end up costing us at least $110! Ya right!! We finally found some at Tai Pan for $5 each but they were not exactly what we wanted. These had two stars welded together to make a 3-D star...no big deal though right? We figured we could just break the welds and take them apart.
So it was easy for the most part but some of the welds were so tough!! On Friday afternoon I was trying to take a star apart and got to a tough part. I was using a screwdriver to pry it apart and the screwdriver (flathead) slipped and I stabbed it into my hand! OUCH...the pain was so bad that I didn't know HOW to react. Christian asked me how he could help and I just told him to take Ava and go away. As soon as he left I just screamed...I guess I thought if I screamed I wouldn't be able to feel the pain. Anyway, as soon as I could partly function we headed to the instacare because I knew I at least needed a tetanus shot. Luckily the screwdriver pushed my tendons aside and just left me with a hole in my hand!! It entered on my palm between my thumb and pointer finger and went in sideways to the middle of my hand. I don't have pain where it entered at all but I sure as heck can tell where it got to inside my hand...OUCH!!
This is the much hated screwdriver and the picture on the right shows how it went into my hand and how far! Ew just thinking about it gives me the heebie jeebies!!
So after all that drama Christian used a torch to take the stars apart for me. I still have to add a little more ribbon to them but other than that I think they turned out really CUTE! The next thing Chelsie and I are doing are wooden pilgrims and I am definitely going to steer clear of the screwdriver!
