CARDSTOCK - Bazzill - I love all colours but it must be textured.
PATTERNED PAPER - I am loving paisleys at the moment and I am a sucker for stripes.
OLFA ROLLER CUTTER, PERSPEX RULERS AND SELF HEALING MAT - I came to scrapbooking from patchwork and quilting, and I find my old supplies quite useful.
WORDS - stickers, handwriting, journalling, quotes, lyrics. It doesn't matter where I get them, my layouts are not finished with meaningful words.
CAMERA - Fugi Finepix 5600 Digital Camera - I love it. I always have it with me.
STAPLER and MAKING MEMORIES(MM) COLOURED STAPLES - I use these to attach ribbon, paper, card and simply to decorate.

I have been searching for quotes that reinforce my word.
Here are a few dealing with organising my wants and things.
Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. ~William Morris
You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need. ~Vernon Howard
Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves. ~Edwin Way Teale
The scultptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination. ~ Elbert HubbardI feel that I have too many possessions and no homes for these things to live. As Part of my "organise" challenge, I wish to contain my "need"/"want" for things and organise my home to be able to easily use the things I have. Even just putting this down in words is liberating.
