    Scotch Reuseable strips

    Amazon.com : Scotch Restickable Strips, 1 x 3 Inches, 6 Strips (R101) : Mounting Tapes : Office Products

    They work great on rulers to make a home made version of the bloc loc ruler. Indispensable if you need to make a lot of HST.

    Caulk saver

    http://www.amazon.com/Frost-King-C21...ds=caulk+saver

    Makes an inexpensive version of the pinmoor (the pinmoor works better, but it is so expensive!)
    Stash Treasure Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy. My stash keeps me STABLE, oh yeah.... and dark chocolate.

    I have some of what you have but I also have plastic canvas that I cover with material for the inside bottom of totes that I make. It's great to have because you can wash plastic canvas in washing machines without distorting your project.

    I saved all the little boxes that "cuties" or "halos" come in because they stack so nicely. Every once in a while I'll try to tame my scraps by cutting them into 2.5 x 2.5, 3.5 x 3.5 etc... squares or rectangles and store them in to cutie boxes so they will be ready for when I want to work on a scrappy quilt or have ready to use as leaders and enders. In the link below you can see them and how they help keep me organized. . I also have a vintage Coke case to display my vintage wooden spools. I also strung the old wooden spools on ribbons to make a valance for my basement window.

    Can you explain what is this? My brain hasn't completed the "Monday morning reboot" yet...I don't have any idea what this may be, but am so curious.

    Cheap (maybe dollar store?) pack of watercolor paintbrushes (that kiddos use) for grabbing lint from inside bobbin case if sewing machine. When a dental pick tip breaks off, my dentist throws them away. I love those for my vinyl cutter, which is also in my sewing room. A huge magnifying glass (dollar store). Butcher block kitchen island as my cutting table.
