1. the photo looks like an upside down beginning of a drawing of a flower.

    you can get another marker or two and finish the picture.

    see the stem and where the leaves go out to the side?

    um…just saying…it would be pretty. you could draw flowers all over the rug!

  2. Except, of course, for the stained carpet, this is so funny, and hoping you get to the laughing about it part soon. Reminds me of the time my mom’s little Yorkie gobbled up a whole box of my oil pastels. The backyard was pretty colorful for quite a while, though she managed to keep her rainbow deposits all outside.

    I think having some folks over to play some Rorschach games might be a fun evening.

    Living in a houseful of men, I had to give up cleaning stains a long time ago. Good luck!

    Funny story save for your ruined carpet!

    I have gotten year old paint out of the carpet with Resolve Carpet cleaner and a carpet shampooer. Good luck!

  4. Thanks for your suggestions! I tried the Purell, and it did help. I used up the whole bottle we had at home, and will be going to the store to buy several more today. I also am going to try hydrogen peroxide and then Resolve…I may Resolve the whole carpet because now the area around the green spots is cleaner than the rest of the rug.

    And nAncY….I love your upside-down flower idea. If all else fails, maybe I’ll go buy a dozen green markers and just decorate the rest of the rug to match! :o) Love it.
