Wonderful Wallies

Following in the footsteps of Stupendous Stamps, I couldn't help but have a bit of fun with alliteration again. Thus the introduction of ChichiBoulie Wonderful Wallies - or Wall stickers if you prefer.

Of course, most of us know that wall stickers are quite the rage at the moment and I've been thinking about doing them for sometime. Then I went to the Maison & Décors exposition in Paris and January and became decided after seeing some repositionnable stickers there.

That said, being determined to make something and actually being able to make it don't always go hand and hand and I've had a very difficult time actually finding the material or a manufacturer to print up my designs. I literally spent hours searching the web for just the exact product. And sad to say, came up trumps.

Trumps that is, until I found Bealoo on Etsy. Thanks to this wonderfully helpful seller, Bealoo (whose shop is truly adorable) I was finally able to find what I needed to make my wall stickers.

I have finished my first set of 3 coordinating stickers based on my Whimsical Fairy watercolours and am currently working on more designs. These stickers are, in my opinion, better than your average stickers as they are printed not on vinyl but on fabric. They are backed with a low-tack adhesive so they can be peeled off your wall and restuck many times (I've already done mine about 20 times) in case you change your mind on location. The front is coated and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth if need be. Perfect for children's rooms.

I've listed my first design at http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/chichiboulie/product/whimsical_fairies_wall_stickers.
