Reminders

Another list. I have a LOT of supplies and tools in my scraproom and I like pretty much all of them- that's why I brought them. Problem is I don't use all of them. There are various reasons for that;
  • ease of access- space is at a premium some things are packed away.
  • increased time to use them
  • clean-up
  • Forgotten what I have
  • Current Scrapping style doesn't lend itself to it
  • Habit
That last one is probably the key- I reach for the same things over and over again out of habit and it just doesn't occur to me to use things beyond my 'normal' habits. So I wrote a list and every so often when I think of it, feel like it, have a challenging layout to do or just happen to notice my list I will run down it and see what jumps out at me for the project I am working on.

Some of my best work was done in the early days when I had very little in the way of tools and supplies. Now I seem to be bogged down by "choice" eg..too much.
