Question What don't you use because it's too frustrating to get out?

Happy Thursday!
We've got another question for you today. What don't you use because it's too frustrating to get out?

For me? It's the Janome Sew Mini. I have no space for it where I can see, and sewwww (*groan*), I don't sew on my cards much.
How about you?

Probably my heat gun & embossing stuff. I have two big tables to work on, but neither are close to an outlet. So, I end up going in my kitchen... Same with my glue gun.

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.

As sad as it is, I don't use my punches, because they are tucked away in a drawer. It has turned into a case of out of site, out of mind.

Paints - they are so bulky that I don't want to waste space in my room for them. They're in a box up in the attic, and I go retrieve one now and then, but mostly not...

Probably my Crop-a-dile. I love it but because it's always packed away in the cupboard I tend to use it less than I should!

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).

Hmm...my heat gun, sewing machine, and some of my dies. They're just hard to get to and put away.

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????
