GRIPE: organizing stamp room

Hi everyone,

I just have to gripe for a minute. My not so DH decided to "organize" my stamp room & I just spent the last hour or so searching for things to stamp Mother's day cards. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything that I was looking for (white cardstock, primas, organdy ribbon, brads...................). I'm so mad at him right now. I know that I have to get over it (it's the Christian thing to do), but right now I just want to be annoyed.

OK, now that I have vented, I feel better. I'll just wait for my Xanax to kick in and go to bed. Have a great week,

Jacque

You poor thing. Mine "organized" the pantry last week and took everything out of the boxes. So I have a giant bowl with brown paper bags with stuff like "jello" and "pudding" written on them. So I feel your pain.

Does this mean you'll be "organising" his hobby supplies next weekend? You know, all silver tools go in this Rubbermaid, all plastic tools go in the trunk of his vehicle, all fish hooks go in that jar, all books go in this bin, etc>

Sorry to hear you had a brutal time trying to make Mother's Day cards; I know how particularly I have my crafting stuff organised, and couldn't imagine having someone come in with no concept of what I use and how moving it all around!

What has the man been smoking? Is he nuts? LOL! I can't even fathom someone else "organizing" my stamp room. Luckily no one in my house would even dream of "helping" me as it would be way too overwhelming!

I wish my DH would want to try to organize anything in the house. Every now and then he gets frustrated with how some thing looks in the house and just complains about it instead of doing something about it.

I would be so mad if I were you, too! One time my DH threw out a bunch of my crafting magazines, he thought I had finished with them! I was so mad it took me a long time to get over it! At least you can change it all back eventually! I feel your pain!

My husband cleans the house all the time. I adore him for it, but when he ventures too close to my art supplies, I get pretty crabby. I try to keep my mouth shut when he does mess up something because I know I'm very lucky to have a husband who is so good at organizing and cleaning. I don't want to discourage him at all! But when my supplies get put somewhere and no one can recall where they put them? I get downright mean about it. Is it so hard to just clean around my stuff?

I feel your pain, and I hope you can get your stuff back to the way you like to keep it before you feel like kicking your husband too hard!

My DH hardly ever even walks into my stamp room, only to get the stapler once a month. I cannot imagine him touching anything in there. You poor dear! Hopefully you got a good night sleep and forgot about it.

Whoa! Holy!! My husband would never dream of invading my space. It's like holy ground he says. He doesn't need to have the experience of invading my space to comprehend what the possible consequences might be LOL

Husbands can be so goofy! Why would he think this is "more oganized"? hehe....

Thanks for the early morning laugh, I appreciate it!

Dh's only comment to your not so Dh is, "Poor misguided fool". Even I know better not to do something like that.

Wow I certainly feel for you!! While I don't have a whole room devoted to my stampin/scrappin stuff............I do have 1 closet that it's all kept in, before that it was in the office. The extent of my DH's orgainizing my craft stuff was building me shelves for my stuff in a spare closet and then putting it in there...........which was fine by me.........lol

Wow! Too funny!

My husband is great at house cleaning but he won't go near my stuff without permission. And the couple of times I did ask him for a couple of things (I wasn't home & I needed some things out of my stampin' room), he was scared.

Apparently he thought they would take up less room. He did write the flavor on some of them.

Same here..Mine's good about cleaning up stuff, doing laundry, COOKING. I sometimes complain, then regret it...I'm trying! But, he doesn't attempt to organize stuff unless I've given the order. Then he's awesome at it. He won't go in my craft room without a map to what I'm looking for.

You poor dear, I feel your pain and frustration.
I share my crafting space with my DH's office. Since he works with computers his collection and mine sometimes collide. So he attempts to "straighten" things from time to time also. Most of my stuff is kept in closed cabinets or drawers (this keeps him out of most of my things), but my put in a U work desks (i have three, one for puter and paper, I teach, one is piled with photo boxes and scrapbooking stuff I'm working on, and one has my stamping projects and ideas on). They aren't big desks, just each has it's job to do. He will from time to time borrow my supplies for something he's doing and I'll find it weeks later somewhere else in the house. (like my stapler that has purple staples in it under the coffee table?) Then again that my have been the kids. It does bug me though, but I have to keep reminding myself that I "streighten" his things sometime too. Besides the look on his face when he know's he had something of mine and can't remember where or what he did with it, is priceless. It's frustrating at the time, but later it's funny.

So, he gets to make the pudding/jello next time? What are the chances he knows the amounts of water, milk, etc.

My DH would never even come into my stamping room - he waves from the doorway.

My dh loves to see what I make and although he cleans up around the rest of the house (and his place in the garage) he would not think of touching anything in my craft room...unless he was making be a birthday card like he did last year. I so treasure that card...made with my stuff and for me...anyway, I am trying to figure out what color would be the best to paint my room now. We moved into a brand new house a few months ago and all the bedrooms are white. My scrap room is one of them and I have to decide on a color...oh no...what to choose.....

Yikes! I don't think I'd ever find anything if my DH decided to "straighten" my stamping room. I just spent three hours yesterday morning organizing my room (4:30 - 7:30 am).

Can you reciprocate by organizing his garage stuff?

As to the Jello fiasco, I don't think I'd be able to make the stuff without the directions.
