Need your clothes to dry faster? // Spindel Review

Are you good at keeping up with with your laundry? We aren’t! As it is now, with just the two of us we can often have washing strewn out over the clothes rack, camping chairs and sometimes even on the couch just to try get it all to dry. The lounge ends up looking like a disaster zone!

Door or wall sticker // tutorial & download

I have finally had a little bit of time to try and add some detail to our home. Although I haven’t got very far one simple little quirk I added was a “hello” sticker on the front door.

Download the template here

All you need:

Sticker/self-adhesive paper
Your design (You can download the “hello” here)
Swivel craft knife (or a regular craft knife, just a little trickier around the corners)

Carefully cut your design out of the sticker paper with the swivel knife. Be sure to decide which side needs to be sticky so that your text/picture doesn’t end up backwards 🙂 Stick it on to your wall or door and enjoy your own personalised little quirk.
