label freak

Remember how excited I was when I got those "made by christine" labels a long time ago? Well this is way better.

...

I was going to just leave the post at that and play on the whole Brevity is Charming and Quirky thing, but I just can't. I have so much more to say. Maybe in 2010 I'll experiment with shorter posts but for now, eff it. I'd been on a hunt for official labels since I opened up shop over a year ago. Just couldn't find what I was looking for though. Eventually I saw someone using double sided loop labels that you sew into the seam and was like, "Pow, that's it. Them's the ones."

But I couldn't find a label company that didn't require an eleventy thousand minimum order. UNTIL. Until. Until I wised up and searched Etsy (duh) and within 15 minutes found myself a great little label maker and picked out the exact labels I'd been dreaming of and went ahead and had them priority shipped to me. They came and I was like, "Oh sweet they look great."
But then I sewed one into a neck cozy and nearly freaked the freak out. I looked at it (and silently commented on the absolute perfect placement of it on the neck cozy so that you can't even see it when you are all buttoned up because I hate when brand-names are plastered all over things) and then proceeded to dance around the apartment like Liz Lemon. For reals. No exaggeration. Not just saying so for a cheap laugh.

I've got some retro-fitting to do on current inventory and once that is complete, all future goodies will proudly declare themselves as brainchildren of unspeakable visions. And no joke, if you somehow make it worth my while, I'll even retro-fit a label into previously purchased items. Cash, chocolate & turkey chili would all make it worth my while.

  3. Awesome labels. Thanks for the link. I don't sell anything, but I may have to order labels just to put on stuff I've made.

    And I totally dance around the room for things like that. You should have seen me when a post of mine was on Boing Boing.

    Also, I've watched that clip of Liz several times. I love 30 Rock.
