Scotch Thermal Laminator – An excellent tool for laminating bookmarks, flashcards and worksheets or game cards you want to use repeatedly

Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches

These pouches work really well with the Scotch laminating machines. They are available in different sizes but I like the 8,5 x 11 size for its value. I cut out smaller pieces and space them in the pouch. It requires a little more finesse to get it right but the result is worth it.

This cardstock has an excellent weight for bookmarks, flashcards or reusable worksheets.  It works flawlessly with the Scotch laminator and laminating pouches.


Wonderpool Lined Leather Journal A5 SizeThis A5 sized leather journal with 6 metal rings is the perfect size for home or travel.  It easily fits in my purse.  I print out my own science-themed planner pages and journal pages and take it with me everywhere.  The leather has a luxurious soft feel and it is very durable.  It comes with some cool accessories including lined pages I use for both personal and blogging notes.

A5 Blank pre-punched refill paper 100GSM weightI use A5 pre-punched blank paper with 100GSM thickness to print my journal and planner pages for my A5 Leather journal.  This weight of paper does not bleed so I can use colored pens or markers with no fear of bleed through.  I follow my printer instructions to print my pages at the right size and  I print on both sides.

1byone Smart Body Fat ScaleI do write health related articles periodically.  I love this scale because it easily calculates my weight as well as 14 other important measurements including body fat composition, bone mass and BMI.  It has an app you can download on your smart phone.  Because the scale has bluetooth technology, all of your measurements can be loaded in your phone using the app.  You can track your body measurement changes over time.  I also love the holding a baby mode capability which allows me to weigh my cats and other things.  So I can use it as a tool when experimenting.  It is an awesome body fat scale.  It also has a blood pressure cuff, oximeter and TENS that can also hook up to the app.  My husband and I use the blood pressure cuff as well.  It also works like a charm.
