Default Sharpie Addiction

I stopped in Wally World this morning for cold medicine and what to my wandering eyes did appear 5 new Sharpie colors in ultra fine and fine point and the dark colors that I already had in ultra fine point. I bought all three packages. The newest colors are pastel and look a little like Bliss Blue, Mint Medley, Lavendar Lace, and Pretty in Pink, and there's a peach color. OMG I'm complete addicted to Sharpies.

I'm glad the Sharpie folks finally figured out color selection is a GOOD thing! I'm not sure what took 'em so long to figure it out! They have introduced more colors in the last 4 years than ever before in their history!

I confess to the same addiction, I have all of the sharpie colors except for the new metallic gold and copper. I could only find those in multipacks with colors I already had until this last weeked - they had a 4 apck of JUST THOSE colors at Staples but it was $4. I will wait, we're really hurting this payday! But, I'll get them eventually

What are the different uses you've found for the Sharpies?

Oh no ~ I have to go to Staples at lunch today. I could break a personal record today for Sharpie purchases.

I use them for everything. I color tiles, dominos, mark the cutter at particular common points, marking my personal catalog, signing cards, just about everythign.

dont forget you can use them on your shrink plastic! works great but will be much darker after its shrunk, so use a lighter color then you want it to be...

I just got back from Walmart. Purchase report:

1 pack ultrafine pastel Sharpies, but no fine point The store near me is always a mess, though, and it's possible they were there somewhere, but I couldn't find it, even after asking a sales associate who definitely needed to visit the deoderant aisle.

Some circular paper clips in a little metal tin like others have found! Yay!

Dymo label tapes; I just got one for scrapbooking and could not find the black replacement tape, so I got those and a pack of different colors too.

White junior legal pads.

Crayola Color Changing Markers - These are really cool for stamping; use one to ink up a shape stamp and stamp it, then use the color changer on another stamp and stamp on top. Very cool...ya gotta try 'em!

Could not find the car garages...they must not have them at this Walmart anymore.

So that's what I got, besides the very last bottle of Diet Lime coke in the cold case...it's getting hard to find around here!

The new retractable sharpies are so much fun too

Jan thanks for the idea on the colorchanging markers. i'll have to give that a try. Might be a fun way to get my roommates kiddo stamping without letting her loose on my stuff.

First off, I'm TOTALLY with you on the Diet Coke with Lime, but let's not tell anyone else for fear they buy it all!!

I am going to look for the Crayola Color Changing Markers this weekend, I think I've seen them recently....

The big problem with living on a tiny island is we have only Walmart and KMart, and if they don't have it, you're outta luck! I CAN'T find the circle paper clips!!! What a bummer!! And we got a Home Depot one year ago, but they don't carry the tiles everyone uses for coasters. BUMMER!! I've been wanting to make these for ages now!

Now tell me about the Dymo label tapes, is this like the old style click label maker? That would be so cool in scrapbooks! Is it SB safe??

I also wrote the pastel sharpies on my list, but doubt I'll find them yet, it usually takes a little longer for us to get these cool new things!

Yes, that's the label maker you are thinking about. It's a hot new look in scrapbooking and they are acid free.

But what you can also do is put cardstock and vellum cardstock through and it embosses that too! With the cardstock, I gently pat it on top of a white craft pad to pick out the letters or use a marker on the very top of the letters to get them to show. THe vellum, of course, gets whiter when embossed so you don't have to do anything extra to it! You just need to cut your strips exactly the same width as the labels are.

Default okay ...

what are car garages, and why is everyone buying drywall tape??? Jan, do you have a sample of stamping w/ the crayola color changers? That sound sooo cool.

I've only read threads on the boards today and already I have a huge shopping list!!!

No ~ Sharpies are not acid free, but then again, some of us have been writing on photos using them for years.

Hey, Jan, you go to your WalMart, buy the paperclips, I'll go to mine and buy the Sharpies and we can trade No clips at my WalMart.

And I forgot ~ I went to Staples, gave into the weakness and bought the metalics. I truly have not bought so many Sharpies in one day in my LIFE. I love Sharpies.

Queen Jan!!!!!!!

What is this you speak of??!!! I have 3 different Dymo labelers (a sale aisle addiction along with the 1000 sharpies I also have) and would love to hear more about the cardstock and vellum going through the labelers. Do you trim it down to the itty bitty strips??? I am in awe of your magnificient royal powers and would love to be deamed worthy of your vast knowledge of all things stamped or at least labeled.

Your humble coaster, Jackie G.
