Super glue really will make your fingers stick together... forever...

I have learned that if you leave it on long enough, mod podge aquires that oh-so-satisfying "peel it off your fingers like glue in 2nd grade" effect.

Glass will really cut you.... many times if you step on it and just brush it off, and then step on it again.

I've learned how far seed beads will bounce on a hardwood floor when spilled-15feet. That's how far it is from my bead chair to the front door.

That Im actually a lot more patient then I thought I was..LOL

That I have far more patience than I give myself credit for and that I need bifocals. I have also learned that in my next life I will likely come back as a Magpie due to my overwhelming fascination with small shiny things.

I've noticed that I can consistently drop tiny pieces of silver down the same gap in the floorboards without even trying. Each time it happens I remember that I forgot to put a rug over it.
