Well I like MOO and MOO likes me (more on that exciting news later) and I had a hard time figuring out how to display my magnet sets. Eventually I just went with the boring little plastic bag and paper thing. But some MOO stickers helped to jazz it up, and cover the staple.

This pyrex dish has become one of my favourite display items.

I also loaded up on Mini MOO cards recently and since I’ve spent time sitting at 2 events recently I tagged and priced everything. I feel so organized.

I’ve always carried brown paper bags for my customers and I usually stamp them. This time I decided to put some stickers on the outside and put the stamp on the inside, like a little surprise when you open the bag.

1,2,3 Mabel’s Labels giveaway Day 2!

Okie, so I fancily wrote everyone’s name on a little slip of paper and tossed them into an empty plastic green strawberry basket and pulled out Laura C’s name! Congrats Laura, looks like Chrissy can at least have her things returned to her should she lose them!

That means today my friends, is the day to enter if you have 2 little special people in your life who could use an awesome Canadian made personalized product to label some of their very important stuff! Have 3 important little people in your life? Uhhh, come back tomorrow then.

Please head over to Mabel’s Labels and leave me a message letting me know the names of your 2 little people and what colours/designs you would like!

Giveaway closed at midnight when I pick the lucky winner!

Also, if you happen to sew or craft at all today is the last day to sign up for my fabric scrap swap, come play!

Me and MOO!

I ordered mini Moo cards a while back and love them. They’re great quality and such a novel little size that they stand out when you give them to people. But with the recent offer for free business cards I decided to try those too. So my mini Moos turned into tags for my items, there’s even room to write/sticker a price on as well if I so desire.

My free business cards came the other day.  Only cost $7 for the shipping, it was a super deal!

Scrapbooking retreat fun!

I’m away for the weekend at a scrapbooking retreat. It’s the first time I’ve had a weekend away from both the kiddies. Bit scary but fun too. There are 11 ladies here and last night the room cleared out, except for me! Of course, in my new found habit of staying up insanely late to craft I wasn’t tired and felt like I could keep going for a while. I made it to 1:30, watching shows on my lappy and working away. Breakfast is at 8:30 and apparently if I miss it I have to eat Doritos, Strudel and candy for breakfast instead. I’m undecided whether or not that’s a bad thing. I woke up this morning and the clock said 8:54, so I jumped up and ran to the dining room in my jammies. Everyone was gone already but the food was still out so I grabbed a plate and headed to my area.

The internet is rather flaky here and I didn’t bring my camera so I’m getting creative with my post and sharing some things I purchased from Etsy the other day. Shopping online is waaay to easy. I went on to gather things for the Tell Your Story class, specifically ephemera. I found these absolutely adorable stamps from Australia in this store.

I also got these awesome tags with illustrations of 70’s ladies on them. I’m loving the one with the daisy earrings and happy sunshine smile.

I think I’m going to have to make some time to hit up antique stores and root through boxes and bins. I remember years ago when I lived in Ottawa doing that one day with my room mates. I came away with some old black and white photos and even some bank slips and cheques from the turn of the century. It was such neat stuff.
