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.

    Thanks for the chance to win! I’ve heard great things about this product! 🙂

  17. I think using the Xyron is a great idea for affixing those awkward pieces of the puzzle. Trying to use glue pens or glue sticks are so messy.

    Winning one of these would absolutely almost make my scrapbooking corner of my craft room complete. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

    Even if I don’t win, I can use a coupon next time I’m at a craft shop and buy one, if they aren’t too expensive, that is.

  21. Tried to do some rearranging before and of course it didn’t work out either. Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. Xyron looks like a great machine to have. Have been looking at it for some time now… Would love to add it to my crafting collection…

  23. Moving furniture not the best thing to do but makes a quick way to change a look.

  36. Love your videos! They are entertaining and informative. My husband was in the room while you were on and he said that we must be related because you sound just like me. We live in a house that does not have a lot of walls so it is hard to arrange things. Oh well! Thanks for the chance to win a great prize. Regina

    1. Regina,
      That’s cool that we sound alike! 😉 I know what you mean about not having a lot of walls. We have a lot of open rooms on the main floor. Actually, the only doors are for closets, exterior, bathroom, laundry & pantry. The next job for Super Husband is to add double doors to our office. I’m never going to have a clean office area, so we might as well hide it. LOL!

  37. Great cupcake holder, my grandson would love it. It did not look like the frog wanted to sit there though, lol. Thanks for having a generous giveaway, Please include me in:)
