I misplace my _________________________ ___.

fill in the blank.

I just lost my little green spatula for my Portrait,,,,,I had it yesterday, so it's here SOMEWHERE. But I just ruined a cut trying to get it off the mat WITHOUT it.



I think I'm going to buy myself about 10 of them so I'll always have one.

new pretty papers!

I would always put my newer paper in a certain spot. Recently I "reorganized" my paper, sorted it all by category, and now I don't know which category I put my newest paper in! I can picture the paper in my mind, but I have to look through all my paper (and there's a lot of it!) to find one particular piece. Very frustrating!

You could attach a chain to your spatula and attach it to your work space - like the bank does with pens!

Not crafting related, except for soap-making, but the sodium bicarbonate box. No idea what I've done with it. I know it wouldn't fit in the cupboard where it should have gone, but where did I end up putting it? No clue whatsoever...

When I constantly misplace just about everything while making a page! LOL! I swear I am constantly saying "where did I put that ______?! I just had it!"

Sometimes I will find it, especially if it's a sticker, on my clothing later on in the night when I'm not scrapping, sometimes later in the week! And I'll laugh and say, there it is! LOL!

My pictures....at my retreat, I had just cropped the photos after deciding how the layout should look, moved them to tape down the BG paper and then couldn't find the pictures. I looked under the paper, under my mat, in the garbage, etc. I even had my table neighbor helping me. I was just about to give up when there, right next to me laid my pics, upside down. They blended in with the table - that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Money....oh wait, that doesn't get lost or misplaced, it just gets invested in whatever I am enabled to buy

...my clear plastic centering ruler! I have learned to just keep 2 or 3 on hand for when I really truly can't find it, but since it's clear it's usually just "hidden".

I also lose pictures, but usually it's because they have gotten stuck to the bottom of my trimmer!

My ATG and my 18 inch ruler go missing a lot, don't ask me how.

I also can't find a sticker sheet I bought on clearance a while ago - I have the other stuff I bought on the same shopping trip, but I cannot find those stickers!

My "Scrapbooking Girl" socks are also mysteriously missing, it's not like I have a ton of novelty socks, and here not in my sock drawer, so I'm completely confused.

My pink flexible 12 inch ruler. It gets coy and goes missing every durn time I'm doing a card - not so much on LOs. I think it just doesn't like doing cards.

Not scrapbooking related but I have lost my compression stockings - prescription and $70 for the pair! They are on a cruise ship or in a hotel room somewhere - definitely not in our house.

Moving right along - I loose my clear ruler more than anything. And my package of glue dots seems to get lost a lot.

I lose the dot over my "i"'s that I cut out with my Cricut!!! There's a name for that little dot - is it a tiddle? Anyway, I am forever losing mine!

Tiddle sounds good, whether that's what it's really called or not. I like it.

What don't I lose? Right now I'm looking for a spool of ribbon that I know was just on my table. I figured a break might help me find it.

I can't imagine what I must look (and sound like) every time I craft. Yeah, how do you lose an ATG and a paper trimmer that you just used anyway? I manage to every time.

Oh, and the bright yellow cutterbee scissors. Another yes to the clear ruler. When I lose my MS scoreboard, I'll know I'm in trouble. I keep it leaned up against my table legs so hopefully it won't get buried.

I've even frantically searched for the project I'd been working on because I set it aside for a minute to do another part of it.

I am so sorry Hon. That would be frustrating. I have lost lots of stuff since we moved last year. I never had that happen before. My old scraproom had a place for everything..I new exactly what I had & where it was. Since My room is smaller. I had to get new cubes here. I do not know where anything is. I am also not remembering lots of stuff that I bought last month or 2 mos or 3 or 6. It is a welcome surprise when I find my new treasures.

Lol, I have a place for everything. Getting the things to actually go there is the problem.

Finding stuff you had forgotten about is so fun though!

Btw, just found that ribbon...mom was over and thought she'd help and put it away. Right where it belongs lol. Who would've thought to look there?! Obviously not this girl.

My small scissors, ruler and letters for a title. I am always losing something. They are usually buried under something else on my scrap table.

I don't lose any particular thing on a regular basis, but inevitably during a big crafting session I'll drop something - a letter, a small embellishment, a little tag - and it will completely disappear. It can even be a bright neon item falling on my neutral, clutter-free floor, and it will still disappear! How does that happen????


BTW - tittle, or simply a superscript dot

i had several paper packs bought on sale and didn't think I'd ever use them, until I started making my own envelopes; now I have a use for them, but can't find them!!
