Happy Halloween!

I’ve had an envelope full of paci clip hardware sitting on my desk for about 3 months now. I’m still planning to make a few for Liam, but haven’t gotten to it yet. I definitely didn’t plan to use them for this… But it is what it is. After my friends and I decided to…

She Had to Be a Baboon

While we were visiting family and friends earlier this month, we went to the zoo that will always feel like home, Riverbanks. The best part of going there as a child was that they had polar bears that swam in a pool, and steps that took you underneath so that you could press your nose…

Design Your Own Label: A Tutorial

Stacey requested a quick tutorial for designing your own labels. There are so so so many ways to do it, but no matter how you approach it can be completely intimidating to jump in. I have a degree in art… and I’m still often rendered useless by staring at a blank canvas. So let me…

Grosgrain Labels in Full Color

While I was working on my grosgrain label designs, Twill Tape Guy mentioned that he could print on colored ribbon, too. He seems to always have something up his sleeve that sounds like a crafty adventure or challenge to me. He’s just adding these colors to his shop and sent some to me to roll…
