              What Bec said!!!! Let’s see…

              1. Sit or stand? Both. I’m usually sitting, but I do find myself standing when I’m arranging embellies so I can get a good view.
              2. Music or TV? Music; I like a bit of background noise that doesn’t require concentration.
              3. Cricut or Silhouette? Silhouette
              4. Prima Color Blooms or Lindy’s? No contest – Prima
              5. 49 and Market flowers or Prima flowers? No fair!!!! I love my Prima blooms, but 49 & Market has them beat lately.
              6. Prima paper or Kaiser craft paper? Again no contest – Prima
              7. Textured cardstock or smooth? Textured
              8. ATG or smaller tape runners? If I must. ATG
              9. Hot melt glue gun or zip dry? I’ve been liking the Aleen’s Tacky Glue myself. It takes a wee bit longer to dry, but I never get strings.
              10. Twine or ribbon? Twine
              11. Distressed edges or crisp edges? Hey, I’m a Swirly Girl! Distressed.
              12. Inked edges or untouched? See above. Inked.
              13. Ink splats or clean background? LOL, I keep on forgetting the splats, don’t I? I like the look, but by the time I get to that step, it just doesn’t seem to fie somehow.
              14. Sizzix die cutter, Cuttlebug, or Vagabond? Love my Vagabond, but I’ll probably get a manual when it bites the dust.
              15. Precisely measure or just “eyeball” it? Depends. I measure when it matters a lot; otherwise, why waste time?
              16. 4×6 photos or whatever works for the page? Whatever works, but most of the time it seems to be 4×6.
              17. Print photos at home or use a commercial photo printing company? At home
              18. Pop dots or the Fed Ex box your Swirly kit comes in? Depends. Packaging for a large piece, weatherstripping tape from U-Line for the smaller uses. (Comes in rolls 1/2″x72yds. That’s yards.)
              19. Are you concerned about acid-free or don’t care? I never use original photos, so I really don’t care.

                                Hmmmmmmmm….
                                Except for Kathi, it seems that we’re not the neatest scrappers, are we?
                                Heather, I’m like you. I cannot start another project until everything is put away, even if I’m going to use the same things again. Talk about anal. 🙂

                                A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.
