Super Joy Loves Her Super Friends Day GIVE AWAY

There’s a give away at the bottom of this post!

Let’s pretend that today is the 14th because yesterday (the 14th) was supposed to be Super Joy Loves Her Super Friends Day!  I do a give away on the 14th of every month to thank YOU for being a part of Joy’s Life.  Yesterday, for the very first time in 2 years of celebrating the day, I forgot.  You know why?  DH and I were redesigning our den which sounds fancier than it was.

Here’s how it really went.

Me: Move the loveseat over there.
DH: moving furniture
Me: Ok, now put the couch where the loveseat was.
DH: moving furniture
Me: Alright.  Now move the recliner over there.
DH: moving furniture
Me: Ugh.  I hate it.  Move everything back like it was.
DH: Really?
Me: I hate it.  I hate, hate it.
DH: moving furniture

So, we spent the day like that.  (I heart you, DH.)  Basically, we ended up with the same layout we’d had before but we exchanged a few tables and lamps from other parts of our house.  We (meaning he) also moved a desk out of the den that will now go in the office and house a giant printer (prints 13″x19″) DH got me for Christmas.  Ok, that furniture moving story was riveting wasn’t it?  LOL!  Sure, Joy.  It’s the next Alex Crossstory plot FOR SURE!


If you haven’t tried a Xyron machine, you should!  I love these things.  They’re great for quickly making an item sticky.  All you do is insert your item into the machine, roll it through and you’ve got a sticky situation.  Actually, it isn’t messy at all which is one of the things I really love about the Xyron sticker makers.  This Xyron Create-a-Sticker 2.5-inch comes with one 20 ft. acid free permanent adhesive cartridge.

Want to see how a Xyron sticker maker works?  I use one in this video.

To be entered for a chance to win just leave a comment on this post. I’ll choose a winner on Friday, January 20 and will list the winner on this post.

    WOW!!! I’d LOVE to win this! I only have the little “X” Xyron machine, which makes it hard to make stickers out of anything that’s not really tiny. This would be fantastic for those “smidgen bigger” pieces!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Love my xyron! Don’t have a big one!!

  20. Is there any way to use the extra sticker material that is “wasted” so it doesn’t have to be? I have the small one and haven’t used it much but recently have seen more ideas like ribbons run through and I love how yours zips across to get it off very cool. TIA! God bless, Janet
