I agree on the sewing machine, although I don't know how to sew, so that helps me not get it out as well.
The one that makes me the saddest is my acrylic mediums. They're all in a giant heavy box way up on my shelf - my tube watercolors too now that I think of it - and it's just a pain, even though those are my two favorite things in the world.
Sewing machine, Cricut, Vagabond, heat gun...anything that needs an electrical outlet. My craft table sits too far from one so I usually plan projects that don't use any of my "power tools"...yep, I am lazy.
I also have to say my Janome sew mini! I don't know how to sew but had plans for this machine & my cards!!!!! Embarrassed to say but I have not even taken it out of the box!!! Got a great deal on it 2 years ago !!
My airbrush, a double-action thing that requires a noisy compressor and serious overspray protection. Not a good rig for apartment living. Also, fiber dyeing and paper marbling gear. Great fun and not that difficult to do, but they're messy projects and require more space than I have to be done comfortably. Dyeing requires totally a plastic-covered workspace, floor included, and protective clothing. When working with powdered dyes, an uncomfortable safety mask as well. Finished products have to be spread on heavily covered floors or racks in the bathtub to dry. Wish I had a general purpose studio (and a cat).
Good list here! I would say for me it is the Bind It All. I have never really used it at all, and it was a well-meant gift, just not in my area of crafting. I put it in a basement closet and never use it!
First of all, Lydia...I almost wet myself when I saw the 'I has a sad' kitty...I haven't seen it before and was TOTALLY not expecting it. NICE!! I agree with you, too...all of my paints and mixed media stuff is in a box shoved under my table. It's one of the reasons I've been so slack in challenges. It's not because I don't appreciate them or love them or think I could learn from them, it's just too much of a hassle! Especially when stamp time is so precious anyway. My real storage problem is my children...does SNS have any plans for lockboxes for THEM anytime soon????
Slightly manic and OCD
