Can't Live Without Wednesday! (and a prize!)

Last night my daughter asked what I can't live without. When I answered "God. You. Daddy. Sarenna, and Jax", she looked almost incredulous and said, "Mom, I meant in your scraproom." Lol.... so it got me to thinking...

Today is the start of an all new Wednesday, weekly post. The scrappy things I can't live without!

So what "Can't I Live Without" this week?
DRUMROLL, please......  



BABY WIPES!


Yep. #1 on this scrapper's list is baby wipes. I am in a constant scrappy mess. I am forever wiping my hands off on whatever is nearby. The desk has been swiped, face has been known to end up with streaks on it, and let's not even get started on my completely destroyed yoga pants. 

The wipes, well... they clean up dern near anything. They remove paint from my desk. They blot, ink, and paint on my projects. The can smear, clean up, rub, wash, desaturate, dab, colorwash, texturize, etc., etc.

There. I said it. I heart baby wipes. 

What can't you live without? To kick off this weekly blog post, leave me a comment telling me before September 1st, and there is a chance you could win some yummy from my stash...
(and maybe even some baby wipes, lol.)

This sounds so familiar - my daughter asked me that all the time, hoping to get some stash for her projects, the stuff I can live without! I like your answer to her. For scrapping, I can't live without my Scotch Quick Dry Glue - LOVE THAT STUFF!

hahaha you stole my can't live without scrappy item!! I'm such a messy scrapper and without baby wipes would be in an even bigger mess!! :D

hmmm other thing is my surgeons scalpel, love it.

Andrea Amu said...

Lol, baby wipes are a wonderful supply to have on hand. I used to use them to clean up my glitter spills!

as for me... My #1 can't go without item is my Cricut! I love my bug madly!

Sarah Mullanix said...

aaahhhhh yes, the baby wipes!! I never used to have them in my scraproom but every since I had my third and have wipes and diapers around again, I've discovered what a lovely thing it is to have wipes nearby as I work and make my beautiful mess!! :) this is such a great idea for a weekly post!

Love your answer! BUT, I think you already know what I am going to say...

INKS, PAINTS, COLOR SPRAYS!! Must use it all, every time I scrap!!

Melissa W. said...

I am a fan of baby wipes, too! If I have to choose something different, though, I would have to say my ATG adhesive... it makes EVERYTHING stay put. :)

There are two things that I can't live without when it comes to my scrapbooking: ink or chalk. I use one or the other on most of my layouts. I just love the dimension they create.

GMS said...

i know it's a bit trite, but for me it's paper. i could do without everything else and still create layouts that i love with paper. and scissors. ;)
(wipes are a fantastic idea though, why didn't i think of that??)

Baby wipes are for sure a must! My number one thing I can't live without is my paper trimmer! I couldn't start any mess without that thing :)

I can't live without my tacky glue and my pick! I love bling and with these two items I can easily put on as much as I want to! I also need my friends to crop...without them it just isn't as much fun! I hope to meet you when you return to Cheryl's. I missed you last time! Can't wait!

Baby wipes are a definite must but my "can't live without" 'tool' for me is honestly my computer! I'd have one heck of a tough time scrapping without it:)

Angie said...

Everytime I scrap/card make, etc. I cannot do anything without my SU! tape runner!

MindyRadio said...

Baby wipes are definitely in just about every room of my house, including the scrap area. Great for cleaning off stamps and the inking messes I leave everywhere. Including my children....hehehe

Well, I just can't live without my buttons. I even used them as a template to draw smaller circles on a LO recently. They are always within reach for me.

AllAmy said...

can't live without-straight edge cutter. I can't cut a straight line with scissors to save my life!

Nicole Nowosad said...

I can't live without those either :) I simply CAN'T live without my sewing machine.. nope, just can't do it!!!!

Darien said...

I know how important baby Wipes are! they so practical!!!! And I cant leave with out Glue dots and a butter knife to distress edges!!!!

Karinn said...

Just found your blog, and I LOVE your style!

I also have a newborn, and baby wipes come in handy for every kind of clean-up, don't they? We all need them, regardless of a baby in the house. But babies are much much cuter to clean than my cluttered craft table!

I would be lost without my Spellbinders circle and oval dies. I can't cut a circle or oval smoothly (even if I trace it first) to save my life.
