I’ve just added a new sticker pack to my Etsy store Happy Mail Day! These were designed with teachers in mind to reward awesome, friendly behaviour. Yay for friends, right?!
I’ve just added some new stickers to my Etsy store – Happy Mail Day – and they were made with teachers in mind. I’m lucky enough to have quite a few teachers in my life and they are all so passionate about what they do – they sure are an inspiring bunch. Oh and a lot of them share my love for stickers too so I feel a special kinship!
If you’re a teacher, or if you know one, make sure you sign up for my weekly newsletter. I’ll be sharing a few discount codes later in the month so make sure you don’t miss out!
Hi everyone. I hope you’re having an awesome start to the week. I popped a whole heap of new stickers in the Etsy shop a few weeks ago including these piggy bank stickers for planners, diaries, journals and calendars. The stickers are printed on 130gsm paper so they aren’t too flimsy (Lord knows I hate flimsy stickers). There are 70 in a sheet and they are a steal at AUD $2.50. Grab yours now or take a look around at the other goodies in my Happy Mail Day store.
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?
Are you a Gilmore Girls fan? I am. I seriously mourned the show when it was canned way back in 2007. The show was so unique and the writing had so many levels and was so witty. As everyone knows, A Year in the Life is on Netflix now but instead of watching all the eps straight away I decided to wait a week in between them. I’ve been hearing a whole bunch of negativity on the internets about the reboot but honestly, I don’t care what other people think or feel. All I care about is spending some more time in Stars Hollow. Are you a GG fan? No spoilers!
If you keep a bullet journal (or bujo) you know how important icons are to distinguish between different tasks. Standard icons include things like tasks, events or appointments. I personally keep track of lots of different things in my bujo – from bookmarks, websites to remember, quotes that I like, things that I have to pay and my freelance writing deadlines. I’ve noticed that if I’m in a rush my icons tend to be a little messy and that started to annoy me big time. So I created some bullet journal stickers to keep everything nice and neat.
The bullet journal stickers I’ve created come in two sizes – 5mm and 10mm, and you can choose from 14 different colours. If you pick the smaller icons you’ll get 792 stickers. If you choose the larger set you’ll get 252 stickers. Either way, you’ll be getting a lot of stickers!
Do you keep a Bullet Journal? I’ve been keeping one since the start of the year and I’ve found it to be a really simple way to keep track of my to-do list.
Within my bullet journal I use different icons to differentiate between tasks, events, appointments and notes. I wanted a way to keep all of these icons looking uniform so I created these stickers and they are available in my Etsy store now. Each measures 5mm in diameter so they are teeny tiny and they are available in black, grey, blue, red and green with which icons. You get two sheets of stickers which equates to 616 bullet journal icons.
I love books. That probably comes as no surprise really. Books give us the opportunity to live multiple lives within our own relatively short existence. They give us the ability to be things we’d never otherwise be. Within the pages of a book is magic so strong that it can conjure whole worlds in our minds. And that is pretty cool.
Books make the best presents. I give them to my nieces in the hopes that they’ll grow to share the same love I have for the written word. I inscribe them (when I remember to) because I think that’s a cool touch. I know that some people think marking books is a bit sacrilegious, but hey, each to their own.
If you want to go a different route bookplates are ideal. There are so many cute ideas to choose from too. Read more books everyone!
