My creative space (Blogtoberfest day 22)

I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

Clockwise from left:
  • Sticker maker
  • Cartridge of repositionable tacky stuff
  • Paper trimmer
  • Inputs
  • Outputs

This week's post should really be entitled Blogs made me do it. How else can I explain the sparkly new gadget sitting in my creative space?

I first saw one of these little gizmos over at Sadie and Lance, when Bianca showed her gorgeous homemade stickers created for a birthday party. "Oooh" I thought "that looks really fun". Did I need one? Maybe. But how to justify another craft gadget?

Luckily, with blogging, the answer is always just around the corner.

And as would be my luck, a few days ago I received the clincher. It was an e-mail titled Another reason why you need a Xyron Sticker Maker and the sender kindly directed me to Lynsey's beautiful creations at Swirly Thoughts. Wow, beautiful stickers using recycled catalogues. How could I not buy one?

(Just quietly, that CurlyPops is a complete enabler!)

XYRON 150 Create-A-Sticker
Makes stickers up to 3.5cm

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space (or to join in), head over here.


  1. I could have 100 blog posts entitled "blogs made me do it." Fun, but!

    I love the sticker maker. I could be the next casualty.

  2. Ooooooooooh Nooooooooo you know I have to buy one now!

  3. Great post - very funny but very tempting too - might need to get me one of those!

  4. Hmmn, can we get a collective one? Maybe we can make CurlyPops the enabler buy it.

  5. It's red. It's sparkly. It's a must have item for sure.

  6. Ooh, I love a good sticker. Maybe I need one of those gadgets too. I of course do not have enough projects on the go, so could easily justify a new hobby/obsession!

  7. Bwahahahaha....um that's my evil semi-enabler laugh....

    Fun isn't it!

  8. See, I'm just impressed that you actually stopped to ask yourself the question "Do I need one?". And that's how you justify another crafty gadget.... because of the careful consideration and thought you gave to its purchase!

  9. that is such a neat little maker :) I really need to find one here, so many uses for it

  10. I never ever knew that existed... and yet now too I am pondering - perhaps I need one?
    I have not taken any of your links as the temptation might prove too much for me!!!

  11. I think your blog is going to make me do something!!! I want one of those big time.

  12. Making stickers.. that sounds like fun!

  13. Listed in my profile under 'interests' are 'Red things' and 'sparkly things' - I think that RED and SPARKLY sticker maker has my name on it...

  14. Ooh a sticker maker! That's awesome!

  15. Was wondering what these were like. Now I might have to get one too!

  16. I love mine (oops Charlotte's) sticker maker!

  17. Excess consumption of blogs has laxative effect on wallet.

    I'm curious about what all your cute little HoppoBumpo stickers are going to be used for... or will they just be plastered around the house by A&B?

  18. Bargain! I thought it was going to be like one of those snap machines I had to have...you know, over $100 and maybe I use a snap each season. I feel the need to make stickers now. NOW! NOOOOWWWWWWWWW!

  19. I have one that I have to confess, I haven't used for ages. It was funny, just today I was thinking it was time to break it out again :)

    And thank you so much for passing my blog post onto Wipup! How exciting finding my tutorial on there!

  20. Okay I too HAVE to have one. Was thinking you were going to say really expensive but at that price how could you not?

    Where do you get them from?
