As a kid I loved shopping for school supplies. While I loved getting new pens, pencils and paper, my favourite part was getting new books and the ritual of wrapping them in Con-Tact (clear Con-Tact of course). I’d cut out pictures of movie stars or bands that I loved and would put together a little collage on the cover. I’d stick a sticker on the inside cover proclaiming that the book was mine and I’d be all ready for the new school year. It’s funny thinking about little rituals like this. Even though it happened years and years ago I remember it like it was yesterday.
I’ve just popped these back-to-school labels (bookplates) on my Etsy store and there are more to come to stay tuned.
In Australia the new school year starts in a few weeks. As a kid I always loved this time of year. I loved hunting down the list of school supplies we needed to buy. I loved how sharp the points of new pencils were. I loved the smell of new erasers and I loved the feeling of smoothing ConTact over new books and the abject horror of finding a bubble somewhere on the book’s cover (that I’d pick at for the rest of the school year).
One of the best parts about the new school year is labelling everything (well, it excites me!). If this task doesn’t fill you with joy I’ve created some sticker sets that will make the process a breeze. You can find them on my Etsy store now!
What other sticker themes should I create?
Do you know how excited stores like Once Upon Supplies make me?! I’m sure you hardcore paper nerds know what I mean. Pretty stickers, labels and washi tape make me giddy!
I could look through this Etsy store for ages. All the pretties!
