I was finishing my cupcake stand… styrofoam boards covered in fabric… with my glue gun..
Got half way through
and then, my glue gun burnt me because I was stupid and put my hand back and forgot it was there… OUCH!
The result 1hr up at the local hospital…. extreme pain, two injections and now a puffy looking hand 🙁 which now stops me from going on our planned camping trip and completing my cupcake stand….
Exhibit B. 1 puffy looking hand.. 🙁

Why can’t you go camping? We love camping and I would be super dissapointed if another one of my loves (crafts) got in the way!

Oh I’ve felt the pain of the glue gun! But my burns were always from the molten hot glue that then stuck to my hand! I’d have to pull it off and it HURT! I’d end up sleeping with an icepack just so I could get to sleep. I’m so sorry for you cos burn pain is the worst! Yet another victim of the glue gun. They’re so good but so deadly! LOL
Hope it gets better soon!

- Wedding: January 2011 - Vintage Villas
Wow! Ouch! 🙁 I’m always afraid I’m going to do this with my glue gun – I’m such a klutz!
If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I used my blender to explode scalding hot tomato soup all over myself and my kitchen. Twice.

Okay I’ve burnt myself with a glue gun before, but never so badly I had to go to the hospital!!! Poor you! I hope you heal up quickly. Just thank heavens this didn’t happen a few days before the wedding!!! That’s my biggest fear!

thank you so much for the well wishes, it doesnt hurt so bad now… I got to take nurophen and snug up in front of the tv with the fire going.
The best news yet tho, is FH finished my cupcake stand for me!! and is never letting me touch a glue gun again.. (little does he know how many DIY projects of mine have a glue gun!)

@ccranetobe – Have you thought about switching to glue dots? Just a suggestion…. 😉

haha glue dots would prob be the safer option, but I like to live on the risky side of life 😉
