Yet again, the weekend has come around; it's as if it were inevitable (although it never seems that way on Tuesday does it?! I can't be the one only having the occasional panic on Tuesday afternoons that the weekend might get cancelled).
Just the fact that it's Friday made me cheery enough that I was practically followed home from work by cartoon bluebirds; but arriving home to this took Friday to a whole new level of amazeballs:
I mentioned recently that I was incredibly flattered to have been asked by DotComGiftShop to join their
This time, they actually let me pick the things for myself (I know, right?! Luckiest Girl In The World, right here), and as soon as I saw these little guys I knew I needed them in my life. To be honest, I'm not sure I'd been properly living until I had them in my life.
|Aren't they just the cutest?!|
Here are a few ideas I've tried out already to use these cutie-pie post its:
1. Mark up all of your favourite recipes in your prettiest recipe books.
This will not only save you time when making your dinner, thereby increasing the time you will have for stuffing your dinner in your face, but could also be helpful if you wanted to subtly suggest to someone that they should bake you a giant cake for no reason *cough*
2. Keep your place in a book.
This could be a really sweet way to get kids more involved in their bedtime stories- letting them pick an animal to mark wherever you've read up to that night. Obviously, if you don't have children, you can use it to remind yourself where you're up to in whatever Enid Blyton book you are definitely not reading because you aren't 9 any more.
3. Hide them as surprises
On picture frames, popping out of drawers, or stuck on the window so they're a lovely surprise when someone else draws the curtains in the morning. Plus, it makes a serious political statement about how we're, like, the real animals being observed when we go to the zoo, and stuff.
You could also buy lots and lots of these and completely cover the entire window to mask the fact you're a slatternly hausfrau who never washes her windows. Filth.
4. Write little notes
To go in your kid's lunch box as a little surprise (my Mum used to do this when I was little and I genuinely loved it). Or, if you don't have kids, write something sickeningly affectionate like "Love you, Schnookums" on one and stick it in your boyfriend's lunch to embarrass him in front of all his super-manly colleagues. Something I would never, ever contemplate doing. Obviously.
If you live in a shared house, you could use them to mark anything that has a habit of wandering off... I know, I know; leaving passive aggressive notes for your housemates is, like, the lowest of the low- but if anything's going to soften the blow it's going to be this face:
You could also use them to cover up the hideously offensive information about calories on the front of delicious snacks. "Number of calories per biscuit, you ask? Oh, they're only one adorable crocodile each". Win.
These Lovely Animal Sticky Memos are every bit as lovely as it says on the bus, and would definitely provide hours of fun for anyone who likes stationery, awesome animals, or
P.S. I'm going to tell you about the other lovely things DotComGiftShop sent me very soon, but I need to do some prep first to show them off in their full brilliance. The prep involves eggs and a hammer (not together); so wish me luck!
