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.
So, here’re some ways that you can great creative with a label maker…
I know what you’re thinking… it’s only September, why am I already chatting about Christmas..? Well my friends, Christmas is only 3 months away and whether you like it or not, it’ll be here before you know it.
Suddenly it’ll be December and you’ll be rushing around the shops trying to get those last minute gifts and worrying about whether or not you’ve got enough food and drinks. And that is exactly why I’ve decided that September is the perfect time to start planning for Christmas!
I love Christmas. I look forward to watching all the cosy Christmas films, singing cheesy songs, and eating so much food that you feel like you’ll burst. I know that it’s just one day of the year, but honestly, life is way too hard to not say “f**k it!” and have the greatest day ever.
In saying that, I know that Christmas can be a stressful and chaotic time of year, so let’s get planning now to make it easier..
In such a fast paced world, it can be nice to just slow down sometimes.
Music can be an important part of the slow living lifestyle. It gives us a way to escape into a peaceful mindset for a bit, and it can give us clarity. Different music genres can make you feel different kinds of ways and that’s what I love about having a slow living playlist.
My favourite time of day to list to my slow-living playlist is in the morning. But that doesn’t meant that it’s the only time I’ll listen to it. I love to hit play when I need to calm myself or relax for a bit. Sometimes days can be challenging and some calming songs are the perfect way to help.
Whether you start the morning with a slow living playlist and follow your morning routine while enjoying the moment, or you listen to the playlist at the end of the day to help you relax just before bed, slow music is perfect to help you be in the moment.
Life can be hard sometimes but I’m a firm believer that if you appreciate the smaller moments then you’ll find a lot more beauty in life.
Even though some days can be a challenge, it’s always worth trying to make yourself feel happy and excited to face the day. One way that you can do that is by reading quotes that inspire you to live your best life.
Since I have some quotes on my phone that I can look back on whenever I need to feel uplifted, I figured I would share those quotes here too so they can maybe help someone else too.
I came home from town one day to see that The Modern Milkman had posted a flyer through the door about their service. I usually ignore that kind of stuff but I was intrigued so I looked up their website.
They seemed to have all the daily essentials that anyone can need. And it was all plastic free!
Since it seemed so great, I couldn’t help but place an order.
I placed my order on Wednesday and requested for my first delivery to be on the Friday.
There’s often a lot of joy to be found in the smallest and simples parts of everyday. Sometimes it can be hard to see the happy parts of daily living because we are all so busy just trying to get through the day. Life can feel repetitive and rubbish, but if you really think about it, you might be able to find some beauty in parts of your day that you wouldn’t usually think about.
Since finding the beauty in everyday life can be harder for some people, I decided to post a list of a few little ideas to help inspire you..
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..
