Poor blu! The worst things my husband does is call my craft stuff "clutter" and take my Sharpies. Oh yeah, and never puts back my orange handle scissors.  Grin

Happy Birthday Redstar13!

I won't let Mr. Bean touch my purple scissors. I was tired of him cutting out sticky stuff with them.

Soooo, I guess I just need to vent here and see if anyone else experiences this...
I am in the middle of creating an ATC which takes several parts to complete. One part is both drying and pressing between napkins, under a heavy cookbook. Does the sight of such a thing not trigger suspicion? Well, hubby just yanks the napkin from underneath the book and uses it. Who knows where my pressing parts have disappeared to.
I am sure that all I need to do is to get  smart and label these things!! I do not have a work area, so I create all over the house, wherever there is an empty space.
Anyone else have this going on? I can forgive the cats for finding and messing up my stuff, but a grown man... I guess I am expecting too much.
Thanks for letting me vent!!

So, blu, your post inspired me.  I couldn't help it.  It just hit me with the power of grumpy cat and a Cheshire grin---

In your honor, and that of all people with a similar plight, I have made the following tutorial:

I LOVE the construction signs...definitely downloaded that barricade one in case I ever need it. I'm very lucky to have my own crafting space which my husband avoids so that he doesn't get scolded anymore for using the wrong scissors!

Before I learned about the sanctity of "fabric-only" shears I would use my mom's all the time (my sisters did this too). Finally she got fed up with them being used on other materials and also disappearing that she used a Sharpies to write "MOM'S DO NOT USE" on them!

Hehe this is great!  I love the signs, WEL!  Husby pretty much doesn't touch things I've left around.  Even things like a random wrapper get saved, in case it exists for the sake of craftiness!

Organizer Note: I have a bit of a request for pm's regarding sent/rec'd. I know I have been a bit sluggish in posting the due dates, but when they are up, please match to the posted due date. I have three open ATC swaps and digging thru lists trying to match up, when it can be remedied with a quick check of the main thread is rather frustrating. I don't mean to be a crab, but I need ya'll to keep the dates in line too. I don't want to be that annoying organizer chasing you down when you already sent/rec'd properly!

Thanks guys!
