A hideous, evil predator bent on that crafter's destruction.
I nearly had to sell my house last week.
THERE WAS A SCORPION IN HERE. Walking down the hall like he OWNED the place! As a result, I learned two important lessons.
- A scorpion is a quick test of your faith. If you see a scorpion in your house walking down the hall in your formerly sacred and inviolate domicile and the first word that escapes your lips (so loudly your neighbors come over, I might add) is NOT that of your Lord and Savior, you are probably an atheist.
- Always be prepared to kill something. As I was in flip flops - this is still haunting me as I've replayed an imaginary scenario where the scorpion kills me about a thousand times in my head - and unprepared for the confrontation, it was quickly apparent how important this rule is. Also, I was not about to get close to this beast so that it could jump on my face like that thing in Aliens. I briefly considered shooting it, but that seemed impractical. My training took over. There are some things you have handled so many times that you know their precise heft and density. I had such a thing nearby. It was a full box of Stampin' Up! Catalogs. As anyone who has dragged these in from their porch knows, a full box is HEAVY. I darted around the corner like a ninja and grabbed my box. From a height of four feet, I dropped that sucker on the unsuspecting arachnid like an H-bomb. But I've seen scary movies. I know that you don't go sit down in the living room and weep while that undead beast comes up behind you and finishes you off. I jumped up and down and squished on that thing until it was practically atoms.
Also, who says stampers aren't the fiercest people on earth? It's not all glitter and ribbon people!!!
Speaking of scary things - well, much less scary than that - how about a little more Halloween goodness?
Last week I did a video of the Sweet Treat Slider technique for Splitcoast and it was so fun! What's cool about this card is that you can keep the candy safe and the card intact - the little slider is a door that lets the person you give it to get the candy out without ripping your cute witch card apart! Fun, eh?
