Like so many of my friends and favorite people, stationery and school supplies are my JAM. As a kid, the best part of going back to school was looking forward to getting all new supplies! Binders and notebooks and pencils, OH MY GAH ...
We were raised on a strict budget most times, but my Mami, being the angel that she is, always let me slip in something fun. I clearly remember a pack of teeny tiny pencils in 2nd grade, completely a novelty product, but they made my teeny tiny heart sing. And then, of course, there was Lisa Frank.
Lisa. Frank. LISA FRANK. L I S A F R A N K. OMG.
Even thinking about it now gives me excited chills up and down.
She was the queen of all things stationery, but where she really grasped my heart was with her stickers. Sheets and sheets of them all at my disposal.
In working on my own cositas and brand visioning, I knew that it was inevitable to create my own stickers and stationery. I've been releasing a new design every couple weeks for the last two years or so, and my collection has grown so fast! Here are some of my latest batches. I've made some out of vinyl, with the help of StickerApp.com. These are perfect for your laptop, journal, car, really anything. They're made of really high quality vinyl and will outlast weather and washes.
Like any 80's baby, I rode the first wave of the planner craze. From the binder ones you'd buy refills for (I never bought the refills, btw, I just found an excuse to get a new one every single year.), to the tiny ones for your purse- I was in all the way.
I remember when I got my first Palm Pilot phone, my planner was used way less and I relied on technology way more. I missed writing things down, I missed the doodles along the border and the physical reminder of years past.
It seems like the planner craze is back (much like the 90s in general!), and I couldn't be happier. I use mine religiously, especially for work. Managing an online store, vending, meetings, and regular social stuff has finally gotten fun again. I created planner stickers because I couldn't find anything I really related to in the online planner store world.
So far, I have released around 7 designs that were made especially for planner sized boxes. These have received great response so far, and I'm so excited to release the secret gems I've been working on!
I imagine the 8 year old Cristina would be really excited to know that her future self is out here creating STICKERS!! A dream come truly, really!
