A while back I posted about drawer stickers I made for my girls. We’ve found them to be really helpful. K and M both do a better job of opening the right drawer (or, you know, opening and closing fewer drawers) to find what they need or help me put things away after every. last. thing. has been dumped on the floor. When Grandma visits, she knows where to find PJs for bedtime. I have to admit, in my sleepier moments, the stickers help me too.
I got a lot of feedback from people about them– the tutorial is still up, if you’re a DIYer. But I heard from a lot of people who liked them but aren’t DIYers, and I’m the first to admit, without a digital cutting machine these would be a lot harder to do. Now that there’s a crafterhours shop, they’re listed.
The vinyl hasn’t budged since I placed it. If you have kids that are anything like mine, the secret to that is this: don’t apply them when they’re around. If K had seen me put the stickers on she’d have most likely tried to take them off. I did it when she wasn’t nearby. She’s a curious george.
M’s are also still firmly in place, but I’m thinking of switching them out with bright pink. ‘Cause she’s a fan of all things pink. Unnecessary, but one of the perks of having a crafty mom, I think.
I’ve added PJ’s to the girl’s set and created a set for boys that includes tiny boy briefs. Those little teeny bits are a pain to weed out but totally worth it. I love those. I had a handful of super helpful mom friends serve as my focus group for what to include in this set, since as you may know, Mikey is my only male child.
There are a whole lot of colors to choose from. As I wrote in the shop description, if you don’t see the color you’re looking for in the pull-down menu, it’s likely we can make it for you. Just send me an e-mail. There are even MORE colors in my supply stash that aren’t in this photo.
It’s also possible that the ones we’d made have sold out and I just need to jump on making another batch. The first reader that placed an order ordered five sets… and that made me tear up a bit. It’s totally scary to be so crazy as to start a shop. And so affirming to have people say “yes, your idea works for me!” Oh, so nice. Thank you for that.
If you’d like to win your own set of drawer stickers– your choice of boy or girl, any color, enter by commenting on the crafterhours Facebook page status that links to this post. I’ll choose three winners randomly on Friday.
