Can I Make it to Nap Time????

Yes, it is!!! That is my entire stock of embossing powders, glitter, Fun Flock, and mirco bead on my table ala Rachel!!!! Already informed DH that most MUST be replaced immediately and a childproof method of storage developed. Trying hard for "laugh instead of cry" routine but the tears are real close to coming!!!!!

Yikes. Oooo.... I am so sorry too. I can imagine the whirlpool of emotions you must be feeling.

Ohhhhhhhhh man!!! Yep...you made it to nap time and one day you'll fondly remember the mischievous little fingers. So, did your little one know they were in trouble or proud of their mess?

Looks like she was having a blast!!! One positive thing....she poured it all on the same spot....not over the whole room! I've had to clean up glitter that a kid got into (at a preschool where I worked) and it took me months to get the glitter off everything.

do you have a tiny holed mesh strainer? if not the dollar store will have them. this way you can can get all the embossing powder/glitter in one area and the beads will still be in the strainer. You can salvage the beads to one jar and have a very unique glitter/embossing powder mix in another so you dont have to toss it all.

Oh wow! Poor mom! :( I'm waiting for the day my daughter does this to me... She already unrolls spools of ribbon, so I know it's not too far off! LOL

OMGOSH! You poor thing!!! Luckily when my oldest was at that age, he only got into 2 of them...at different times. lol. YIKES!!! :)

Oh my goodness. I feel your pain (I have a 3 year old tornado living in my house). Hang in there. I just keep telling myself that they have to grow out of this type of behavior eventually. If we lived a little closer we could get together and let the little hooligans get into trouble together. Now there's a scary thought! :)

I FEEL YOUR PAIN. My son gets into my stuff all the time... not as bad as this though! Many a time I am cleaning up the messes he makes with my embossing powders and micro beads... but I can't get mad at him because he's usually making me a card when he does it!!!!
I feel bad for you though! That's alot of money on your mat!

Soooo Sorry!!! Do hang in there! I had a similar thing happen when my husband's niece babysat for us - she got into the stamps herself and let the kids who were 3 and 7, make a 'concoction'...which was embossing fluid, some reinker, all of my embossing powders, some glitters, a new container of crystal effects, some glue, paint brushes to stir it all up, oh, and yes, they threw some stamps in there for good measure....I wanted to hurt someone when I saw it all... and I cried a good long while because it was all new for me at the time..

Do you need some ep still? I would be happy to share some of what I have!

oh my- now that was naughty! But I bet that she thought that she was just "making pretty" for Mommy. So sorry about the mess.
