Oh yes.  I get the "organizing" bug, and try to put things away all neat and tidy, then lose things for MONTHS.  I have "reorganized" my craft room a dozen times, and found tons of cool stuff...only to lose what I was working on twenty minutes earlier.

Eck, I hate this. I used a roll of magnet strip last week and this week when I have a brilliant new magnetic craft idea, it's no where to be found! I've torn apart my whole house looking for it! And go figure, they don't have any more at my local stores, so I have to wait until I have a reason to go to the city and pick one up then!

If I'm not crafting at the time I can tell you exactly where something is, but as soon as I start taking out things to use they disappear! And they either end up in my hand, right in front of my face or in really weird places - like my sewing scissors in my toiletry bag or paint brushes under the water heater.

On the other hand my best friend can call me up and ask me where her top/shoes/crafting item/official document is and I can tell her. Which is really really weird as we either spend time together out or at my place.

Resurrecting this very old thread because I have no shame! (And because I'm sure this is still an issue for many of us here today.)

My crafting supplies conspired together yesterday to trick me into tidying up a little bit! I got home, ready to do some painting, except my paintbrushes were not where I remembered leaving them. I tore the room apart looking for them, then pieced it back together so it looks slightly tidier than before. I didn't find all of my brushes, but I found enough to paint with.

And then I couldn't find the canvas/board I wanted to paint.

I had to tear everything else apart looking for the dumb picture I'd drawn the day before. I found it just as I was about to give up and sulk on the internet for the rest of the evening!

It's the actual worst, not being able to find what you specifically need. I'm surrounded by a veritable ocean of crafting supplies but never what I actually need!

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

All the dang time. I took EdelC's advice & installed a cpl magnet strips at my work stations. The sort for knives, from Ikea etc. Best organizing tool ever. I still end up looking for non-metalic stuff that magically vanishes the minute I set it down but if it sticks to those strips that's where I put it.
