Get FREE stickers

I recently bought a new laptop for college.  Naturally, I wanted to get some cool decorations so I started searching for companies that give out free stickers (i’m working with a college budget here!) If you’re in the same boat here are a bunch of websites that are give them out.

I found many companies had forms set up to send out stickers or otherwise you just have to shoot them an email asking for stickers. (linked are the forms)

These companies have a form to fill out for free stickers:

Southern Marsh

If you send a self-addressed envelope to the following companies addresses, they will send the envelope back filled with stickers:

These companies will send you stickers if you fill out the linked forms or email them at their customer service email address.

Puma – email them at customerservice@puma.com
Vineyard Vines – email them at tieguys@vineyardvines.com

These are just a small collection I have gathered of the many companies who participate. If there are other companies you want to receive stickers from, I would suggest emailing them through customer service. More often than not, they are happy to send you some.

Hope you all are having a good end of summer and start to the school year!

Super Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

I am one of those people that wont decide on a costume until the day before halloween.  It can be very stressful when you know you have no time to order things online or go shopping.

7 Last Minute Costume Ideas:

  1. Vampire: vampires are a fool proof costume.  Throw on some black clothes that you feel confident and fun in, get some fangs, and apply a dark berry lipstick.  Add some blood to vamp it up a notch.

  2. Frat Boy: throw on a Hawaiian shirt, some colorful chinos, a baseball or bucket cap, and Sperry’s and you’re good to go!

  3. Cow Girl: All you need for this costume is a plaid shirt, jean bottoms, leather boots (preferably cowgirl boots), and a bandanna.  Cow girl hat optional*

  4. Baseball Player: What you need is your favorite baseball teams jersey, white, gray, or black ;leggings depending on the team colors, sneakers, white high socks, and a matching baseball cap.  To take it up a notch carry around a baseball and wear eye black.

  5. Taylor Swift:  Grab your favorite skirt-sweater set, a classic handbag, cute sunglasses, and classic heels or boots. Go the extra length by wearing red lipstick!

  6. Arianna Grande: Throw on a fun skater skirt or dress, some cute pumps, and throw your hair up in her signature half-up-half-down.  ** you could also go the funny route and buy a box of donuts to lick and talk about how awful America is.

  7. Hippie: Find a flower or tie-dye top and a pair of ultra flare pants. Take this look up a notch with a flower crown, a peace sign necklace, and some groovy shades. And don’t forget to flash a couple peace signs!

Custom Font

As I was searching the internet for random inspirations, I stumbled across a website where you can create a stoma font using your handwriting.  I have always wanted my handwriting to be a font.  This website is so simple, all you have to do is print a PDF, write the alphabet, then scan it back into the computer! Thats all it takes! My font turned out very similar to my actually handwriting. (except I normally write with a mix of cursive and print in a random fashion)

Here is what my font ended up like.  I used a sharpie so it would show up on the page.

Here are the steps:

1. Download the PDF here – print multiple copies because it might take a couple tries. (I only did it once and forgot a vital punctuation piece.. a period!)

2. carefully write each letter following the guiding lines and boxes.  It’s kinda hard to stay in the lines with a sharpie.

3. Scan in the PDF- if you don’t have a scanner, you can download an app on a tablet or smartphone.

4. upload the scanned in PDF and name your font.  Then download it!

5. Next, drag your downloaded item into Font Book… and Voila! you have yourself a custom font!

this is so neat!!

Once you save it you can use it just like any other font that comes with your computer.  You can even write on photos and screenshots.  The only thing you need to remember is to save the word documents as PDFs as well is you want to open them on another computer that lacks your super awesome specially font!

Show me how your fonts turn out, I’d love to see! 🙂
