Ouch....Like Really...

...well, it was more than an ouch, more like an OUCH!... you know, those bold, capital ouches that realllllly hurt! Well, picture the scene; me, chopping up chicken breast... frying pan with a bit of olive oil in it ready to cook said chicken... and then me, in my infinite wisdom, tipping the tray of chicken into the now smoking oil, whilst leaning over and turning the gas down... and the ensuing blue air surrounding me when said molten oil leapt out of the frying pan and all over my... how can I put it... decolletage... I am being polite here folks... And... also in my infinite wisdom, I had taken off my warm snuggly hoody because I didn't want to splat curry paste onto it when I was cooking... so I was wearing just a vest. Mmm, quite! I have no excuse either because I do own pinny's...several of them indeedily.




Anyways... after several hours of moaning and groaning and whinging and whining and the applications of cold compresses, I have been left with a few lovely blisters, two of which I have popped already, the biggest is about the size of a 5p so not that bad but still... I relate this story purely to extract sympathy from you (milking it for all I can... ) And obviously, because of my injury I am unable to cook for a while... and need to get inky to take my mind off things. (am trying that one out later lol) Just as I know that in a couple of days time the blisters will heal over and I will be called Scabby Sheridan for a few weeks... attractive eh?




This post is punctuated with pictures of a couple of cards from last weeks show - focussing on the Studio 490 Botanical Art stamp set. The background of the green one is the Picket Fence "resist" technique I showed on the show. Now, if you didn't get chance to see that show, give me a shout and if a few of you would like to me to do it as a Tut on here I will do :O)) (I don't want to do it again if it is going to bore you lol)



Right, I shall away... oh and before I go I will show you what I did last night/this morning... you know those gorgeous District Market goodies from the Duke of Distress? Well, I love my bag loads and loads... and use it all the time... I wanted it to look a bit different though so.. I cracked open the ProMarkers (not been used for 387 years) and coloured the butterflies in... once each butterfly was coloured I wiped over the top with a babywipe which removed the sticky residue from the pens and paled the colours down a bit... looks more natural. I have coloured all the sides but not the bottom... I just realised that when I took the pics lol Off to get the pens out again!




Right... am deffo off now... time for me to play with ink, Studio 490 stashly bits and get creative! Thanks for looking... TTFN!

I really don't think you're safe in charge of anywhere - kitchen - craft room (thinking wax accidents here...) LOL. Hope your blisters aren't too painful.
LOVE the cards - and the bag.... keep safe now!

Redanne said...

Ouch is not quite the word I would have used........hope it all heals quicky. Best excuse not to cook that I have heard for a long time, hope you are able to get really inky! I did not get the butterfly bag because I thought it dull, I got the ticket one instead which is lovely but I am now coveting yours.....Regards, Anne Rx PS, a tutorial would be brilliant.

Saw your projects in march's Craft Stamper, first time I've bought this mag and just wish I'd done it sooner! LOVE the colours you have used in those projects!!

Have to say despite the fact that I knew your shows were on it didn't stop me for FORGETTING to set the digibox!! o_0 ...*sighs* So I wait with baited breath to see what you did and how!

Take care in the kitchen or better still...let hubby do the cooking!!;) lol...

My first thought was 'that's a cheap way to get an enhancement without surgery', my next thought was 'ouch, poor you'. Loved the samples and the show, which I have on tape so I can go back and check how you did them. Clever idea to colour your bag, it looked good before but it ten times nicer now.

lainey said...

ouch Hels!!! look after those inspiring fingers now, we all need them!!! loving that green card Hels :)lainey x

Kate said...

Take care of yourself hels, although the comments on here have made me giggle.

I missed one of the shows and didn't see the picket fence resist and now I am intrigued, so a yes vote for a tutorial from me.

Was going to paint my bag with Alcohol inks and now you have given me another option. Might try it out on the bottom and see which works best.

pearshapedcrafting said...

Ouch indeed! I would have a few take aways and M & S ready meals - certainly wouldn't be going anywhere near that naughty pan!! I love your butterfly bag but especially love that resist technique. Hope you start to recover soon!

Anita Houston said...

I would never call you Scabby!!! So sorry, I know exactly what that feels like...and I hate to be burned! You poor girl...try some extra virgin coconut oil...it really helps! Hope you heal up quick!

Krisha said...

ALWAYS PROTECT THE TA TAS! Love your cards and the post had me rolling on the floor!!

ElizabethR said...

Step away from the kitchen Hels it's a dangerous place lol!!!!!!! It's bad enough burning your bits aand bobs in the sunshine, but cooking oil, yikes!!! At least you have the snow to roll over in lol, be good xxx

Joanne said...

Oh no Hels. Do the blisters mean you have extra, erm, bumps now?? If writing a tut helps then I'm not saying no.
Hugs Joanne xx

Jo said...

I shouldn't, I shouldn't I shouldn't - but i did, that is laugh (well snort if I'm honest) at your "little accident" Mind you I did the same the other week on my arms not quite as impressive as you and your hooters though! jo xx

Kirsten Alicia said...

Omg Hels!! Have you any Aloe in the house? Either the actual plant - cut a piece off & apply the gooey stuff - or a tube of gel? It's great for burns. I hope you heal quickly.
Gorgeous cards & I love the bag.

sandysewin said...

Oh my goodness, what a place to get burned. Owwwie kazzowie. You and the girls definitely need a rest and some creative time to recuperate. :-)

I'm always up for tutorials of any kind. I've played with my picket fence DS some and would love more ideas what to do with it.

Feel better! Hugs,

Sandy

P.S. LOVE the bag!

Katina said...

Ooh Hels, hope your fried boobies get better soon! Love your bag and the cards and I, for one, would LOVE a tut - thank you!

craftimamma said...

Oooh, Hels I heard the blue language from here but I'm not surprised. Hope the blisters heal quickly. I love the cards and Sky+ behaved itself last week and recorded both your shows as I had asked it nicely to do, lol! Your bag looks fabulous painted.
