Default Speaking of lost things....

I just finished cleaning / reorganizing and have been thru every single thing and STILL am missing my PW flying reindeer die, a Prickly Pear pumpkin die (that I have matching stamps for, GRRR!), an IO Santa & his reindeer die and ONE of the hearts in the 5 Hearts & Love PW set! Some of my favorite dies and I've looked and looked and looked...

So now I'm keeping a magnetic plate next to my Vagabond to put dies in while I'm working on stuff - I guess my missing ones just ended up in the trash can by accident.

Sam, I posted on a different thread how I was organizing my small stamps and can't find some of them. I need to clean my room and I hope I can find them. I'm hoping they didnt land in the garbage. The of course were some of my favorites, that's why they were out.

YAY! I found all but one of my small stamps, even one of my favorites, as well as my missing Easter & Ladies stamps. The craft room clean up was productive.
Sam - Hope you find all your stuff.

I know what you all mean. I recently had to reorganize all my stuff because I lost a table to a printer. I realized I couldn't find this package of foil sheets I was looking forward to using with that new glue from PW. I have officially been through everything so I know I definitely don't have it.That sort of thing drives me nuts!

Well, I've been through my stuff twice and can only conclude that somehow my mind went somewhere without me and I managed to throw 4 or 5 dies away somehow...but I just cannot figure out where they could be! Makes me CRAZY(-ier, hubby says that should read...)

What makes me crazy is when after I have cleaned up the craft room and put things away where I "think" I know where they are, go to get them and cannot for the life of me find where it was I put them??

Jackie , I can relate. I've done the same thing.

Sam, did you maybe lend them to someone or use them in a different room?

I hope they turn up. I am Catholic, so I keep a running dialog with St. Anthony to help me find things I lose. He must get a kick out of me, because he helps! Sometimes I can't find things because I have a picture in my mind that is wrong and he helps me by changing the picture. Sometimes I lose other things, though while searching for the original thing...
