That is what I find myself saying quite a bit today (on Monday, the day I am writing this post). It's just been one of those days.
But thankfully it was broken up a bit by the kids excitement over "Tacky Day" at school and a great lunch with two of my best friends.
I have this sketch that I saw on the October Afternoon blog last week,
Plus these three images I printed on cardstock of three of my favorite movies from high school.
It was going to be a fun little page in my mind.
Until I decided I just had to include the movie ticket stubs.
Yes, I have saved some of the stubs from these movies for all these years! They are stored in a little photo pocket protector like people used to carry around in their wallets to store those little wallet sized photos. (Do people even really use those anymore?)
Anyway, I saw these three movies at the theater in high school with good friends and saved the stubs.
Along with my first ticket stub to a U2 concert back in 1988!
And my ticket stub to Phantom of the Opera on Broadway which I saw the same year on a school trip to New York City over Christmas break.
I have had them for years stored in my jewelry box on my dresser.
And guess what?
When I went to grab them today, they were gone. Yep, gone!
Why? Where? When? What?!!!
I am sure I moved them for some reason, but for the life of me, I am not sure when, where or why?
So I searched the place where I keep our very important papers and passports.
The reason being, I used to keep those important things in the bottom section of the same jewelry box. And I thought maybe, just maybe, my stubs were with all of it.
And then on top of that, I notice my passport is not with the kids passports.
Another great mystery.
So I spent a good chunk of time searching for ticket stubs and a passport totally perplexed as to why they were not where they would normally be.
*ETA* found the passport but not the ticket stubs as of this morning :)
And if you are still with me, I have a peek for you at my project that will be in the next issue of
Crafting Ireland magazine using...
I can't wait to show you the finished piece. I am more a scrapbook layout girl and not so much a decor maker, but had fun creating this one. And I used one of my teacher skills doing it! :)
Well, hopefully next time I post it will be with a layout!
If I could just find those ticket stubs!
