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

My clear centering ruler, letters I cut and one disappears, the dot on the I, my ATG, and last but not least, I have lost and never found the cover for my Cutterbee scissors!

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!!

Always losing something--pics, paper, embellies, stamps. But I never did find my 6x6 brick masking template. Finally gave up and ordered another one. Guess it ended up with the socks that get lost in the laundry room at the other side of the house.

My paper piercer. It's always in the drawer but for some reason it hides and I struggle to find it every time. It's neon green, you'd think it would pop a little.

I loose embellishments. I love to play and make my own. As I am working on a page I think about something I made but can't seem to find it.

I lost my corner rounder when I cleaned my space. It was hanging so nicely on a drawer pull and not bothering anything. I went and put it in the 'perfect' spot and now can't find it. After six months of looking, I bought another one. Guessing the first will show up pretty quickly here.

the clear stamping block. I have two and constantly lose them both - they are so small relative to everything else. And I use them all the time - as a ruler (because they have lines), for putting together titles from alpha stickers (a must!), for other things.. then there's actually stamping LOL))

Whatever I need RIGHT at that moment. It doesn't matter what it is... the next thing I need is always hidden. I look and I look... pat pat pat my table down... pick up ALL the papers I'm working with... shake everything out and still can't find it. Then I call my DH into the room. As SOON as he gets there... NEVERMIND! FOUND IT!!!! There have been a few times I couldn't find something and had to get him to help me look for it. And I'll never forget about the time that the sticker I needed was stuck to my hair. Nothing says sexy like stickers in your hair and ink all over your fingers.

A really big binder full of stamps! How do you lose something that big? Of course, the one I want for my Christmas cards is in it. Not scrapping, but I've also lost my MP3 player with our Christmas cantata on it. I've looked all over and can't find it! The cantata is next week and I really need to listen to it a few thousand more times!

I've had letter stickers stuck to elbows and arms. And others that just vanished and never turned up. They're like socks in the wash, aren't they?

Yeah I found my box of stamp blocks yesterday evening! But, not I can't find my ATG gun I was using it night before last and now I can't find it had to pull out an old tape runner. How do you lose something that big?????

Oh and the spatula drill a hole in it and run some twine through it and tie it to your power cord. That's what I did and it's always there

Some time ago I put away my Martha Stewart screw punch in a safe place -- so safe that I couldn't find it anywhere. Ended up buying another one.

My Cutterbee tweezers! I seriously CANNOT scrap without them, but they are so small that it's easy to bury them! I try really hard to remember to place them back in their little basket, so I can easily find them, but I think there's an elf that comes along when I'm busy working on a page and steals them out of the basket and hides them under the clutter on the desk!

YES! I swear mine used to bury themselves like a mole. Now I have a hook hanging from the underside of the shelf above my desk, and I hang the slippery little things by their chain between each use. They can't wriggle away then.
