6 Creative Uses For Label Makers

Since buying a Dymo Label Maker, I’ve been feeling the need to label absolutely everything. At first I was just enjoying labelling everything with what they are but then I started to wonder if the Dymo label maker (or any label maker really) had more uses.

I love to get creative so when I started to think of uses for my label maker, I wanted to think of some ideas that weren’t just labeling things. Of course, labelling things will always but fun. But sometimes, you’ve just got to get creative and try some new things.

That’s how I came up with some creative uses for a label maker.

One Month Of Learning To Crochet

How have I already been learning to crochet for one month?! I feel like only a few days ago I decided to head out to buy some yarn and crochet hooks.

But anyway, it’s been a month and it’s definitely been an interesting and fun month.

I’ve learned quite a bit during my month of crocheting, but I feel like I still didn’t get much made.

I’m Learning To Crochet

For most of my life, I’ve know people who can crochet. Whether it was a family member, a friend or someone who I chatted to online, I feel like I knew a lot of talented people. I found myself owning quite a few crocheted pieces that I was gifted from people and I loved all of them. I love the idea that someone put all that time and effort into making a blanket, gloves, scarf or whatever else, just for me. It warms my heart that someone would put effort and time into something for little old me.

Since I love the look of crochet, I wanted to try it out for myself. I’ve tried a few time in the past but I was never able to stick it out.

I recently tweeted out that I wanted to be able to crochet and people’s responses were so lovely that I decided to give it another go for myself.

So, I set off on a mission to start learning how to crochet..

The Ultimate List Of Bullet Journal Collection Ideas

I consider myself to be a part-time bullet journal user. Back in 2016, I was a hardcore bullet journal enthusiast. Now that it’s 2020, my life is getting busier and I don’t have time to make every page look beautiful and Instagram-worthy. The main thing that stopped me from using my bullet journal was that I’m not super artistic. My drawings and doodles tend to be a little bit all over the place which made me worried that I wasn’t ‘good enough’ to be part of the BuJo Community.

Anyway, now I have started to realise that each journal owner is unique. We don’t have to do things that way that all these professional planners do it. So, my mission from now on is to start using my bullet journal the way that I want to.

Little Tips To Be More Creative

One of my goals for 2020 was to unlock my creative side a little more. I used to spend so much of my time drawing, painting, taking photos and writing. I miss it so much as I just felt so much more free when I was expressing myself through creativity.

As I’m trying to get back into the creative side of my brain, I thought I would make a list in my notes full of tips that would help me be more creative. While I was writing, I figured that this list could help others too so I decided to share it here on my blog.

How To Make Creative Goals

Have you ever found a random list of goals that you set yourself years ago? If you’re anything like me, you probably set those goals and then forgot all about them. I know how disheartening that can be but now that you’re reading this, everything is going to change.

Don’t set ‘traditional’ goals

There’s a couple of reasons why traditional goals are actually holding you back. The first reason is that you aren’t actually creating goals, you’re creating dreams. We are always told to go big or go home so we do go big but by doing so, we are also making our goals impossible to achieve. These kind of goals also reply on other people. For example, maybe your goal is to reach a certain amount of followers on Instagram, well that would be a good goal if it didn’t rely on other people. It’s up to other accounts to follow you and therefore, your goal isn’t in your control.

Set process goals

To me, a process goal is something that you can actively control in your daily life. It doesn’t reply on anyone or anything else. For example, I could make a goal of how many views that I want to get a day on my blog but that it’s in my control. However, I could make a goal to upload a certain amount of posts per week. I can’t make people view my post but I can control what I put out into the world. It doesn’t matter that it’s a small goal, it matters that I’m following the process. If I made my goal that I wanted to reach 1,000 views a day, then I would probably end up feeling really bad about myself if I didn’t reach it. That is why you need to set goals on things that you can control.

Try making goals in three month incriments

There really is no need to set your goal timeframe for a whole year. So much can change and happen in that period that it’s hard to keep yourself feeling accountable. There’s also no time to put off the things that you need to do because you only have three months to reach your goals. After the three months is over, maybe you can extend your goal for another three months or you could adjust your goal completely. That is totally up to you but like I said, a year long goal is just way too long.

Tell your goals to anyone and everyone

I’m not sure why but people have become secretive about their goals. No one wants to share their goals list just on the off chance that they don’t reach their goal. We are all so afraid of failure and even more than that, we are afraid of other people seeing our failures. No one does everything by themselves and that is why you should share your goals. The people in your life will be the biggest motivators for you. Have people check in with you on your goals.

These tips are definitely working for me so I would love to know what helps you with setting goals that you can actually accomplish.
