      Yeah, you read it right. The title is annoying. lol
      What part of scrapbooking/crafting do you find annoying???

      For me, it is definitely having my hands covered in glue. No matter what I try and how careful I am, I always end up with my fingers covered.

        Oh, I like this question!
        Let’s see…
        Inks. No matter how careful I think I’ve been, I always manage to spray my table beyond the mat. I use a shipping box when it’s going to get extra messy, and somehow the ink seems to jump over the sides and all over the place. And you don’t want to see my fingers, they end up covered in the stuff.
        Little bits of paper. Again, I’m so careful to carefully swipe all of the “leftovers” from punching and distressing and trimming into my waste basket. And yet, my floor constantly looks like something or other exploded!

        A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

          ha ha… I hear ya Peggy. Totally true. I stopped using the box thing, cause I don’t want to react the mist that is already in there, that I don’t want on my project. I have a bunch of old news papers that I spread out on my desk, then my mat on it, and when finished, the newspapers gets in the trash.

          The little pieces all over… yes annoying. Esp the pulp/dust that falls down when you distress with the Prima distress tool.

            Mine is getting the inks and mists on my fingers and under my nails I always look like I have been eating Cheetos. Also my scrap room is crowded so I am constantly banging my legs on the desk causing bruises.

              Having to wait for things to dry is my most annoying thing. When my mojo is kicked into gear, I just want to keep going, not wait for drying time. The heat gun helps, but some things, you just have to wait on. The other thing that annoys me also has to do with time. I hate getting started on something and it is going great, then having to stop some reason and come back to it a couple of days later. Sometimes, my mojo doesn’t return to the project with me! Very annoying!

                what I find annoying is that I can’t find the thing that I am looking for until I don’t need it anymore. Like, i’m looking for a certain embellishment I know I have, that I want to use and can’t find. Then a few days later, it’s right there. That annoys me.

                    Ah, yes! All of the above it totally annoying!!!

                    What’s annoying to me is when I’m on roll and I get disrupted! Whether is an email, text, phone call, or someone at home asking a question I’ve already answered…lol… I lose my thoughts. I get so irritated I just stop what I’m doing! In turn making the project I’m working on drag out!

                      LOL, Ang, I’m just the opposite. I have the attention span of a gnat lately and I’m constantly distracting myself, going back and forth between whatever I’m working on and all of the things that you mention. On the bright side, this is how I get a lot of housework done, LOL.

                        I’m with Kim, not being able to find what I need. It drives me crazy! Even worse is when I’ve taken something out and then can’t find it ?

                          Paula, you DO know that there is a wormhole totally devoted to sucking up crafting supplies, don’t you?
                          You will never find that “lost” object until you’ve moved on to at least three more projects. (Says the voice of experience…)

                            One thing I find annoying is when I use a certain embellishment on a project and then some time later find that just that particular flower/chippie/metal piece would be just perfect on my latest project!!! I have actually pulled things of an older page just cuz I neeeeeed it on a new one! LOL

                              Not being able to find something that I know I have. Grrrr….or, cleaning up. I just want to keep scrapping but sometimes the mess has to go!

                                Maggi, that IS annoying.
                                And I think that this is one of the reasons that most of us hoard. Heaven forbid that I’ll *maybe* need that embellie/flower/paper sometime in the future.
