Which is why I also chose to post this apt picture as we all forget that we were all a beginner in something once. It might amuse you to hear of my first experience with embossing powder. I had made my card, stamped it, but wasn't sure about what to do with the powder, so I sprinkled it on the card -but the ink had dried, and then tried to heat it up, the result: a carpet full of embossing powder! I hadn't realised that the ink had to be wet to take the powder.
So not a good days crafting, but I do have a very clean and tidy craft space! Well after the heat gun packed up I set about tidying up my crafty space. Found a box to store my 'in use' stamps, cleaned quite a few stamps, including my TH collection so they stay stuck to their acetate. All the mats were cleaned and stored neatly, so it is all ready for me to make a mess tomorrow.
Sad to learn that the Stamp man are not continuing with their challenges, so will have to root around for more.
Stay safe out there, and warm. And please if you are driving in dull, wet or snowy weather, please put your headlights on!
