Where Did I Put That . . .

Does it mean I have too much crap,  junk, (ahem) stuff,  when I can't find one particular thing I'm looking for?
It's for something very special and I MUST FIND IT!!

I know it is here somewhere . . . I just used it . . . but, where to start looking . . .

It's not in here . . . 
or here . . .

it's not there . . . UGH!
Looked through there . . . 
Nope not there ~
REALLY thought it was in there . . . crap!  (whoops) shucks!
Not in there . . . 
Well, when all else fails - if something doesn't really have a good home ~
it goes in there ! my goofy hot pink box of MISC!  
AH HA!!!!!
There she is . . . I knew I'd find her!

Thank God for blogging, cause if I hadn't stopped to photograph it all, I never would've REMEMBERED!!!!

This was just a night of frustration and rambling . . . thanks for bearing with me! :)

At least everything is in one area and looks neat. I am a total mess right now looking for a place to store my crafts. I need one extra room just for my junk!!

Glad you found it! ;-}

I just talked to a gal who does organizing in her spare time - I told her my house is fine except for my creative space. It just got out of control! Hopefully she can help as I have a mental block right now. I like how you've used the cigar boxes. Your items look very nicely displayed - I think I could shop at your house!

Glad you found yours, you are very creative and I know you are going to do something special with it!!!!

Everything is so wonderfully organized in your studio, Karen! You'd drop dead if you'd see mine. It's such a mess. I'm glad you found what you were looking for.
Have a great weekend!
Big hugs,

Oh my goodness Karen, your stuff is so organized! I need to follow your lead and get some much needed sorting done! Glad you found what you were looking for!

Enjoy your Friday! I have another busy day and a tournament out of town ALL weekend! HUGS!

It sure looks organized to me! Geez Karen,
Your the crafting queen! Are you making something for me dearie??? (just kidding) I'm off to a mega garage sale near the twin cities with my sister and daughter. The whole town is filled with them and they are mostly in ritzy neighborhoods. Need to hit the shower!
Have a great day my friend,

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Karen, your "stuff" looks really organized! I saw a little notepad I almost bought, think I will go back for, called "List of things I don't want to forget where they are, but I will probably forget where I put this book" ! It drives me crazy when I can't find something!!! So glad you found that, now you can relax! xoxo Julie Marie

The EXACT same thing happened to me this morning. At least you found yours though! I'm still looking. Don't you hate it when you're totally organized, but STILL can't find what you're looking for? I know I just saw it the other day too.

By the way, I love the way your organize! I'm with Sharon, it'd be too much fun shopping at your house!


Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Whew! Glad you found it! I gotta go sit down now and rest...I was looking for you too and I didn't even know what I was looking for!!

Lynn Stevens said...

Hi Karen , You better check my blog!

sissie said...

Hi Karen,
Now I am really ashamed that my room is messy. I didn't show the really bad parts! LOL
Your stuff is all organized and categorized, so you are ahead of me for sure. Looks like lots of pretties too. I'd like to go in there and nose around.

Oh Karen, you are so funny. It all looked pretty organized to me. Glad you found it. I can't wait to see you. I will be ready for a ton of walking. It should be such a fun trip. I am so excited. Hugs, Marty

Our Back Porch said...

Oh, I would want to find her too! And you have given me some organizing ideas! I sure needed them. That is first on my list to work on when I'm out for summer!


Patty said...

Your storage looks so interesting! Glad too that you found what you were looking for. Me...I often need to call on St. Anthony...

Love the music on your blog! So refreshing like sitting out on the porch on a raining evening with your best friend.

:) When we were building our house, we lived in a small trailer and all my art stuff was stashed in a million different places. I'm so glad to have it all in drawers in the big armoire now! Yay - I can find stuff!!! :)
Have fun creating!!!

Shelley said...

I like how you have a lot of things labeled. Glad you found what you were looking for!! Your room looks like a nice treasure trove!

Karen, your stuff is so prettily organized, I can't imagine it would take you long to find anything! (And thank you for the kind words you've sent my way lately.)
