whenever i want to keep my kids away, i plug in my hot glue gun. they scatter like they are running from chores!
it is AMAZING!
you see, at different times in their lives, they have both been burned by one. (thankfully it wasn't my fault, both times were at school) and, as we all know, it hurts.
but yet, i still use my on a regular basis.
my kids on the other hand, are smarter than i. they run.
so for a visual, when i burn myself crafting, it goes down like this...
i say a few words under my breath, shake my hand and jump around the room and then finally pull the cooled off glue off.
then i go back and keep useing it.
they think i'm nuts.
maybe i am.
but at least they aren't around to see it.
