Stars, Planets, Space!

Today is Space Exploration Day! Humans have been intrigued and mystified by space for centuries now, with more and more incredible discoveries being made all the time. For example, earlier this month the Juno Spacecraft captured stunning images from Jupiter, after taking 5 years from Earth to reach Jupiter’s orbit! In honor of this special day, we’ve put together some fun space fabric, star stickers, and cute planet goodies we’re sure you’ll love just as much as we do!

Strike a Pose!

Today is Camera Day! Cameras have come a long way, from being bulky equipment that required a certain amount of effort to carry around, to being so tiny they’re now found on every smartphone there is. Using cameras has become so popular nowadays, that in fact about 58 million photos are uploaded to Instagram every day. We’re big fans of cameras too so we’ve pulled together some fun camera fabrics, camera tapes and kawaii photo frames as a tribute to this awesome and must-have object!

It’s Take Your Dog to Work Day

Are you a dog person? If so, today is Take Your Dog to Work day (but check with your office first if you are allowed to bring yours in!).  Man’s best friend is known to be loyal, playful and intelligent. They also play a vital role in today’s society, acting as service dogs for those with visual impairments, to working with the police, and much more. Many of our favorite characters from TV, movies, books etc. are dogs, such as the super popular San-X character, the funny Iiwaken! To mark this special day, we’ve compiled some fun dog related goodies we have available in our shop such as dog stickers, dog plush toys and more!

Water a Flower Day

Today marks Water A Flower Day, a day on which we… water flowers! The name of the day is simple enough but the subject matter is most certainly complex and intriguing! They’ve inspired us in many ways, you’ll even see plenty of flower themed products on our site including, fabrics, stickers, tapes and more. Here are some quirky, fun, and fascinating facts about flowers:

1) In Holland during the 17th century, tulip bulbs were actually more valuable than gold.

2) The Titan Arum can grow to heights of up to 3 meters. They’re also known as the Corpse Flower due to their terrible smell which will make anyone want to run away from them as fast as possible!

3) The Daisy was previously known as the ‘Day’s Eye’ because it resembled the sun. Over time, the name morphed a little bit, to Daisy.

4) In order to produce 1 gram of rose oil, approximately 2000 rose flowers are needed!

5) Bamboo flowers are quite rare, with some species of bamboo only sprouting flowers after 120 years!
