The Joy's of Motherhood??????

Hey Diva's! I hope your Morning is better than mine so far! I'm going to hop right into it because I have some venting to do! Ok on Monday Crew member 5 decides she wants to go in my craft room and play, I go in there only to find Exhibit A:
If you can't tell that is a WHOLE tube of GORGEOUS Martha Stewart Glitter! I explained to her that mommy was very upset and the response I got was " Agagagagaga" in Grown Up talk that means
"Whatever Mom!" So I did what any Mom would do, I vacummed it up lol!

That leads us to Last Night! Crew member 2 decided she needed a pencil from out of the School Supply Box that is in my Craft Room, She gets it and FORGETS to leave the door Open! *Insert Dramatic Music* DUN DUN DUN, Crew member 5 once again goes into the Craft Room to "PLAY" and then I find    Exhibit B:
*Insert Dropped Jaw* You guessed it that is my Brand New Cricut Expression 2, 5th Anniversary Edition with Lovely PERMANENT Marker drawings! This is on the screen cover ( Thank GOD) but she did get some of the actual Cricut hence Exhibit C:
I just wanted to CRY! I am very sensitive about my Cricuts (actually all my crafting supplies) and all I ask is for the Crew members to
STAY OUT not unless I'm in there. I have thoroughly explained that this is my place of peace and all I ask is that they don't come in and if they do CLOSE THE DOOR so Crew member 5 won't come in! Simple Rules right, GUESS NOT!!

I couldn't even face this madness to clean it up b/c I would have really Broken Down and cried ( like I said I'm sensitive about my crafting supplies). So now as I write this to you I have 1 question:
               HOW DO I CLEAN THIS CATASTROPHE????
Help me guys b/c soap and water just isn't doing it! Thanks for listening to my sob story I will blog w/ you later!
~Keep GOD 1st in EVERYTHING!~

My jaw dropped just like yours probably did! Oh my!! Huggs!! I don't have any suggestions to clean it but I do sympathize with you. My kids are 9 and 7 and cringe every time they go in my craft room for something.

Oh my sorry to hear about your mishap, try a little soft-n-scrub just a little to see if that will work be very careful.

Totally understand the sensitivy about your crafting supplies especially the more expensive investments like the new Cricut! I would recommend trying the Mr. Clean magic eraser...they usually work wonderfully on all types of messess! Let us know how it goes...
