Another Album For Sale

Hey, folks! I just wanted to let you know that I have another (or will in a few minutes) have another whopping HUGE 142 page 80's childhood sticker album listed on eBay...under username "missmidie". Unfortunately this time all the stickers are stuck to the pages.

But one fun tool I found greatly useful for collecting vintage stickers is a machine called a Xyron sticker maker. You can find it at Walmart or your local craft store. It was actually designed for scrapbookers but it works awesome for us sticker collectors too. You can run any shape item (or non sticky sticker) through it and is applies an adhesive to the back and adds a backing...no batteries or power needed. Just crank the handle and out comes a sticker. So cool!! I love using it for restickying old stickers that lost their stick. It works like a charm. And you can just restick them to their old backings. The best sticker collecting tool out there (besides the albums).

So just use your Xyron sticker maker to restick the backs of some of these old stickers from your "stuck" albums and place them is your sticker books. It's fun and easy to do.

I'm also working on filling another sticker album (with all stickers on original backings) that I hope to have listed on eBay by next month (December). So please keep an eye out for that coming up as well. :)

One World One Heart Giveaway

This contest is now closed. Thank you so very much to you all who stopped in and participated. The winner of this set of stickers is entry #85. Thanks you guys and hope to see you all next year. ;)

Hello and welcome to chilly northern Minnesota, all you great folks around the world. :o) Please, come on in and warm up!

Let me start by saying, this blog post is about a wonderful event first created in 2007 by a gal who is the author of the blog "A Whimsical Bohemian", an international event created to allow bloggers from around the world a chance to meet and connect with one another, and to help create friendships that span the globe.

From January 25th through February 15th bloggers around the world are invited to participate, where each blog will have one or more wonderful items to give away. I decided to join this fun and exciting OWOH event in hopes to meet many new folks as well as to get a chance to share one of my latest passions. Perhaps I may find some others out there that also collect or just to give a fun chance to walk down memory lane. (which is why I enjoy this fun hobby so much...memories!)

I collect vintage stickers made in the 80's and have a pretty good size collection going now. And this is the free gift I am offering with this event. A large lot of collectible vintage 80's, 90's, and current stickers that you can do with what you wish. Use your wonderful imagination. Perhaps you'd like to start a collection yourself, use them in your scrapbooking, pass them on to a child, or just enjoy the way they are...the possibilities are truly endless. But these are all New Old Stock just off the factory roll or still in the package. These are not from previous collections and none of them have been used so they are all in wonderful condition from a smoke free home.


To be eligible to win this wonderful collection of stickers, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post including a link or email address so that I may contact you should you be the lucky winner. I will be drawing for the winner on February 15th at 6 pm central time (any entries posted after this time will not qualify, sorry!). Anyone worldwide may enter!

♥♥ The winner will be announced at 9 pm (central standard time) February 15th ♥♥

Thank you all so much for stopping in. I hope you got a chance to warm yourselves as well as a chance to look around. ;) God bless!

Just Posted New Pics...Lisa Frank

I finally just posted pictures of my Lisa Frank collection if you want to take a peek. Boy, it takes some time to do that whole process...but I'm getting more done. lol ;) Some you'll notice seem like repeats mixed in there because I have combined the LFs from my unicorn album and the ones from my brands albums together there. So I do have a few dupes.

And I also added pictures of my actual childhood collection too. But those are all stuck to the pages unfortunately. :(


I do have a few more pages of LFs to add when I get pictures of a collection I am working on. I am trying to recreate my entire childhood collection best I can from memory as I had several albums. lol So I would also like to add pictures of that collection when I get them. Ugh, so much to photo...so little time. lol

Anyway, the link is at the right if you want to stop in and check it out. Thanks!!
