"Oooh—Shiny!" Week: Wednesday

I have about 10 minutes to sneak this in...and no tangled pieces from to share.

My suggestion of the day is to find some metallic paper or yardstick (correction: that should read "cardstock"!!!!!) to tangle on. I located some in my stash this evening, but did not get around to tangling on it. You see, I was caught up in an obsessive search for colored pencils.

It's not that I couldn't find any colored pencils, though. I have plenty! It's that a few of my sets have been missing pencils, and every now and then it BUGS me. Today was one of those days that it was driving me crazy, so I spent some time searching for them. And my diligence paid off!!! I found all the ones I was looking for . . . except one. ONE! One blue Intense pencil from my tin is STILL missing. Before tonight there were three missing; why was the third one not with the other two that I located??? I was also missing some pencils from two Prismacolor sets. Guess what. I found them, too!!! But that one elusive Inktense got the best of me tonight, and I just realized how late it is.

I wish I hadn't gotten so caught up in my search tonight. But I am glad I found the pencils that I did find. I hope that in my ongoing quest to set up and organize my dream studio, that one pencil will eventually show up. Deep down, I know that I don't really NEED it. I just hate knowing that it is not where it should be. Why do incomplete sets bother me so much?

P.S. Still laughing that my computer thinks your should tangle on a yardstick.


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets obsessive about missing craft "stuff". I have lost my only craft knife and it has been missing ages - if you come across it, will you let me know - thank you.

  2. Thanks for sharing your mental meanderings, Amy and putting us up to the challenge. The possibilities are endless. Have a brilliant day, Cheryl

  3. Thank you for the comments, Chrissie and Cheryl! I was beginning to think I was just rambling to myself. ;-)
    I'll keep an eye out for that craft knife of your, Chrissie.
    And I'll probably end up purchasing a single pencil form Jerry's so that I'll have that color. But I will still miss the original one from the set, and keep looking for it, and when it shows up, I will certainly celebrate it and share the news!
