One I use to keep track of ideas when I see them on the internet (or on this site) I "browse" a lot while at work, and to remember ideas, I bookmark pages in my favorites. In the evening before I leave, I email myself the links in a word document so that I have them at home as well!

such an easy solution . . . now why didn't i think of this

Stringing- Create a thread "needle" with glue

When trying to string items with very small holes, there often is not enough room for a needle and two thicknesses of stringing material. You can stiffen the end of a single piece of soft stringing material by dipping it into super glue or a clear cement.

Wipe the excess from the end of the string and let it dry thoroughly. Drying on a piece of waxed paper or propped in the air is the best technique, as the end will stay rounded. If the end of your "needle" wears down while stringing, you can trim a bit of the end with sharp scissors and continue on.

I leave my lamp plugged into the power strip with my wood burner and my glue gun, that way I can just look at my craft room and know if my tools are on or off.

Great tip. I am famous for leaving my glue gun on. Gotta get a lamp for my desk. Thanks for the tip.

I know what you mean. I do something very similar. It is nice to look in and know weather or not your stuff is still on.
