I am so sorry for the TERRIBLE layout of this blog! It was actually pretty nice but one day everything went all amuck ??? No clue what happened....and since I don't really post here anymore I haven't bothered to figure it out. SORRY!!!

Never Go Empty Handed

That's my motto...I like to bring a little something when I'm meeting someone for lunch (if I haven't seen them for a while)....I brought these:

Today I took a break from convention "stuff" and meet some friends from my days at AT&T.  WHAT FUN!  I loved seeing them and catching up.
Jackie and Robin
Mary... doesn't like pictures!  But she reminded me that I could show the ring I made for her YEARS ago!  Hard to see but its sterling silver band with a cross cut out on the top.  Yes, jewelry making is in my past too :-)


Anyway, I got up early this morning and put personalized labels on 3 different plastic amber bottles for each. (Bottles available HERE)



The label looks yellow and blue but it is actual kraft (same color as burlap bag) and blue


There is one for lotion, one for dish-washing liquid and one for foaming soap. I then placed each gift in a little burlap bag that I added a gusset bottom to so they would stand up.  I know, they just scream for a bow around the neck but I didn't think that was so practical...with all that liquid going in and out of each.

I used the following label from The Graphics Fairy:
Original

Modified


The initial is a font called MFC Monarchy Initials found HERE.
