Yiying Lu's "Lifting a Dreamer" wall graphics set in Boing Boing Bazaar
A couple of days ago my 7-year-old daughter and I decorated her bedroom wall with designer Yiying Lu's "Lifting a Dreamer" (Elephant) wall graphics set. (Yiying is the illustrator of Twitter's famous Fail Whale. Here's an interview with her.) The three-foot elephant set is $59.95, and the four-foot set is $79.95. They are available in the Makers Market / Boing Boing Bazaar.
Yiying Lu premium wall graphics are self-adhesive and will stick to almost any surface (walls, windows, even ceilings), and can be removed and re-hung 100 times without leaving a mark or damaging your walls.
These are NOT vinyl stickers or decals, which have a tendency to curl, peel, bubble, and crack, and are difficult to re-position without losing adhesion or damaging surfaces.
