Hi Laura - what brand/size are those external harddrives? Those look like a fantastic solution for long term photo storage! THanks! =)

You need to come visit me! The Duck headquarters is about 5 minutes from my house. I get to go in and test adhesive every few months!

Laurie LaRiviere

those are a lot of the things I use too, manily the trimmer, and paper piercer, love that for the brads, thanks for the little tour of your stuff!

Diana Waite

this was an informative post! :) Funny thing I have A LOT of the same tools! :) good luck with all of your upcoming projects for CHA--can't wait to see them up close and personal in a few weeks!

Becky Williams

I think that you might need a few more rulers :)


I too have alot of the same stuff... plenty of CM products here. LOVE my circle cutters. I have the XL circle too. I also like my glue dots (same brand) :) I have the old dark blue CM trimmer. I need to find a new one as I can't get blades for it anymore. Do you like your trimmer? And yes, those swiffers are handy for keeping glitter and whatnot away! :)

You could be my scrappy twin. We have a lot of the same favs. I keep breaking my paper piercers, and going back to the metal ones. I can't wait to see your CHA posts.

Sara Rossi

Love seeing the behind the scenes look into your world. Laughed at the swiffer!!

Kathy Martin

Love the Swiffer idea, Laura! My desk gets coated with debre! :)

Chris Dring

Oooh a kindred spirit! I have a swiffer on my desk too!! LOL!!

Thanks so much for sharing about your tools! I never knew about those tiny hard drives. These are so fun and cute and would be great to go along with my laptop! I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves to uses rulers. Sometimes I worry that it's a throwback to my schooling, but I love knowing how much I'll need of something or if a photo will fit...It's also good to see I'm not the only one who believes in the right adhesive for the right job and the Duck is such a good one and such a good buy - I just wish there weren't so much waste (refills?) and I love all my Xyron machines. It's so wonderful to be able to put dry adhesive on any shape or most any size of thing that you want to! Anyway, thanks for sharing!


What an awesome post. I have been reading your blog for awhile now, and I absolutely love it. I use alot of the same things, I save my photos on a disc instead of hard drive. Always using my paper cutter from cricut, and your circle cutters... I have the same old school ones from creative memories too.. can you believe the blades still cut!? :) I wanted to ask you about your photo sizes. Do you always cut down a 4x6? Or do you have a magical printer that prints out a 1.5x1.5? Thank you again for all your inspiration!! YOU ROCK!
