More hidden dangers of a craftacular lifestyle...
Here's another crafting disaster I forgot I captured on film last week. I had just arrived at work and thought I was being uber responsible deciding to cover my windshield with a pop-up sun shade for the day. I reached behind the passenger seat and grabbed the folded up piece of fabric...which apparently caught itself on or was wrapped around a box of thumb tacks left over from posting fliers around campus for some philanthropy project or another. A box of hundreds of thumb tacks. New, shiny, silver thumb tacks in a hard plastic box with the closure broken off.
It rained thumbtacks.
For long time.
Tiny pointy shrapnel flew everywhere, and now my car is a minefield. Is. Present tense. Still. About a week later. Rather than actually deal with the carnage and pick up every little tack, I just snapped a few pictures and continued with my day.
Note to self: find better places to store craft supplies when toting around the car.
