Read a magazine with a good recipe, craft idea or article? Then later you can't find which issue had the craft in it? This used to happen to me a lot. Now, I tape an index card on the back of the magazine or cookbook and write what I liked. Months later when I'm trying to find the cute way to paint a chair I found at a yardsale, I can flip through the backs of the books w/o opening each and searching for hours.
lol - the old lickum doesn't work - you're right! i use 6 lb. fishing line alot for sewing ribbons . . . and it makes a great thread looper to get those thicker threads thru . . . and i always know where my fishing line is (in lieu of searching for that tiny thread gadget that breaks/unusable after a couple uses).
