Sparks Fly: Pintester Lights Shit on Fire

0 Posted by - May 23, 2014 - DIY & Crafts, Food & Drink

So I was going to do a quote post today, but then I found this…


And I thought it called for a round-up post of all the times sparks have flown on this blog. (P.S. If you’d rather see a penis round-up, I’ve got one of those, too.)

1. Clementine candle – I still love Apartment Therapy, even though this turned out like shit.

2. DIY Candle Designs – Ok, fine, this only involves fire once you use what you’ve made, but there’s a joke about burning venereal disease, so I think we’re good.

3. Plastic Spoon Flower – Fire and fumes.

4. Cutting Glass Bottles (with Fire) – A video of terror, humor, and near misses.

5. Crisco Candle – As gross as it sounds, but more fun.

6. Crayon Candle – Still unclear as to why you would ever do this.

7. Apple Candle – Yeah, you can make candles out of a lot of things. Can– not should.

8. Goblet of Fire – Oh yes, I lit a drink on fire, Harry Potter style.

In this round-up, we see that Sonja is very afraid of fire, but also employs it often in her pin tests.

    Unless you deleted my comment for some reason, Disqus is eating comments. It showed when I first posted it.

      Sorry Von. It got stuck in the spam filter (so, basically eaten), but I made Disqus cough it up. 😉

    Lol, now that that’s out of my system, I just had to let you know that this popped up in my feed while I was sitting in the back yard next to a bonfire. Seemed rather appropriate. Setting shit on fire while reading about setting shit on fire.

    Your blog is positively fantastic. Post again soon, please?

    I have tried to like your blog, but watching you suck at things just isn’t funny. Most of the time you don’t even try. This is just depressing not humorous.

    You went and got a real work outside the house job and deserted us….didn’t you? It’s okay…I’m used to it. Sigh.

    You guys are the sweetest for demanding that I post– thanks for missing me, seriously! I did get a job (outside of blogging) and that’s why I haven’t been posting as much, but I am still posting! Keep on checking. 🙂

      What? You like having money? My boyfriend reminded me today that I haven’t been stalking your site litely, and I realized I haven’t seen any posts, so I had to find out what’s up. Maybe do a “this is not a post, but I have a life outside of the blog right now” post so people lazier than I will also know that you aren’t dead?

    Your psychoness is missed….
