Do you use any electronics (cell phone, tablet, etc) when you do your crafting?

 Nope, unless you count the background music on the computer.

Not really... just to use the craft calculator to figure a good price for my items. LOL

 I use my computer sometimes for journaling in my scrapbooks, and a cricut cutter, which is electric, but not really anything else. I don't use electronics for beading or other crafts I do.

I use my nook to read or play pandora. I love listening to stand up comedy while spinning.

Yeah, I do.  Mostly my laptop.

I keep a spreadsheet that lists my current projects. There I can track what row I'm on, what % is done, any notes I need along the way, etc.

I built in a random # generator to know what to work on next. I'll knit a row, then pick up the next project, work a row on that, move to the next. My ravelry group jokes about it, but I get bored easily working on one thing. I usually have 3-4 projects going at once.  

I even keep a couple of books in the list, reading a chapter at a time.

Yeah, computer to get ideas for sewing or to research techniques because I have not been sewing for even a year. I also use it to get inspired for my paintings, heck for most of my projects too. I also keep my project photo's and project notes on my laptop.

I listen to pandora while working or will put on Netflix and watch or listen to a movie. 

I post my pics here on Craft Cafe and Facebook too. I do use it quite a bit I guess.

My tablet for either music, watching a tutorial if I cant figure something out, or reading directions

I occasionally use patterns that I find online or will look online if there's a term in the instructions that I'm not familiar with.
