Have you seen my muscles?

This morning I made tags for my reusable grocery totes on Etsy. They are made from unbleached cotton ribbon. I printed the text on iron-on sheets, cut them out and started ironing away. They were turning out great until, suddenly, my ironing board seemed to be sinking to the floor. I finished the one I was working on and backed up to see what happened.

I was pushing so hard on the iron that I actually bent the metal leg (the one that goes from top left to bottom right.) If you compare it to the bottom of the window or floor board, you can see the lovely new angle the top of my ironing board sits at. Not helpful. I am pretty sure I got this ironing board when I first went off to college (for $6), almost 10 years ago, so I guess it has lived its life and served its purpose. I'll put a new one on my list. I think I got the iron at the same time as the board, so hopefully that doesn't quit on me now.
