Injured in the Line of Crafting?

Ouch Medals
Have you ever been injured in the line of crafting? Then you deserve a medal! This was another Ten Two Studios design team challenge: use bottle caps and bamboo dominoes together. I am prone to all sorts of crafty boo-boos myself, having sewn through the side of my finger with my sewing machine or burned myself with my various irons. (We won't even talk about all the paper cuts!) For those of you less accident prone, here are some general Medals of Artsy Crafty Honor. Keep an eye out at Ten Two Studios for limited edition artsy medal kits!

Your medals are lovely badges of honor, Carolyn! Worst burn I ever experienced was from a hot glue gun while making a "money tree" as a gift. Yikes! I Still shudder when I think of it! Hugs, Terri xoxo

@Katie - that's what chop sticks are for :D (not that I can ever find any when I need them)
@Amy - thanks!

Thanks, Terri - I burned my fingers quite a few times while soldering those pendants :P
Thanks, Juanita! :D

I'm lovin' all your soldered projects. I haven't had my soldering iron out since moving last summer. Plus my art buddy turned me on to soldering with a torch and now I'm ready to give up the iron and get a small torch... Of course I too am prone to injuries so the torch may be a little too risky for me! I've burned myself enough with the iron, can't imagine what I could end up doing with a torch-Yikes!
Anyway, lovely work!
Have a great week!

Thanks, Cathy - I don't think my husband will let me use any open flame :D

I love this! I'm so clumsy and injure myself doing all sorts of activities all the time. Cooking definitely wins though--can we count that as crafting? I'm currently wearing three bandaids from last Friday's meal. That must deserve a medal!

Michele - I think cooking injuries deserve their own category of medals! You definitely deserved a medal for injuries sustained in the line of kitchen duty!
