Just a quickie!


Here is the next page in TAGD. Another waterish color illustration, some lettering, and a business card from my friend, Amy Nelson. It's one of those new, cool, tiny business cards, expensive, but great images and a nifty little carrier. Two-sided... But, what I'm actually writing about is the importance of always having some kind of label or sticky stuff to stick stuff into your journal with.

You can see the little bit of label in this photo. It's just an Avery mailing label that's been spattered with paint... Lots of paint. Metallic paint! Other things you can do are to run the labels through your printer. You can use any size or shape of label; the little round ones are extra cool and you can use the grid they pop out of for decorative effect, too. I also carry a glue stick with me to stick stuff down to the page, but if you want to be able to see what's on the back of a card, you'll want to use labels and some kind of little hinge.

Off to do Christmas tree stuff. I just can't resist posting this pic of a really cute little Noble fir! It's 2 ft high and 2 ft wide...

The paint spattered labels are a great idea!I've had a few unfortunate incidents with glue sticks in my purse. And that little tree is fabulous...how can you not fall in love with it's fluffy little self? Thanks for the great blog. Have a happy holiday!

Ahh, I fall in love with ALL the trees. Most come bundled - 'cept the little guys - and as I unbundle them and tie them to the display line I wish them a happy home and inhale their scent and thank them for being trees. Silly, completely silly, I know that... But I can't help it.

The first year we carried Noble firs, one of the first ones I unbundled had a little bird's nest in it! The perfect decoration.

What a great idea - the labels decorated for sticking things into a journal. Thankyou for sharing that.
