Outer Space – a new back to school sticker theme

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?

New large bullet journal icon stickers

bujo_lg_icons2

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!

Head over here to grab the smalls and over here to get the large. If you have any comments, questions or requests please let me know.

Bullet journal icons galore!

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.

7 bookplate ideas for kids books

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!
