Labor Day: Productive Day
This weekend has been absolutely beautiful here in the piedmont of North Carolina. I have enjoyed being at home, planning and working on new Woolies! In expectation of several events and sales venues this Fall, I got BUSY. I made lots of wooly wine wear, created a new packaging idea for the wine wear, ordered cello bags for products, bought price tags and stamped them with little sheep faces, and designed and ordered business cards. Whew. I'm also super excited about a friend's offer for me to spend some time in a lovely little studio space where I can get away from the distractions of my house. So, I will be focusing the next few weekends on having some wonderful Saturday workdays. I will NOT prepare for Holly Days like I did last year: 3 weeks of 2, 3 and 4 a.m. mornings getting items made to sell. Nope...this year I'm pacing myself!!!
I'm pretty proud of my commitment to reuse, repurpose and recycle as much as possible. My new wine wear will be displayed on wine bottle shaped cutouts from cardboard boxes I had in the garage.
My business cards from 123Print.com are being printed on 100% Post-Consumer Waste Recycled cards. My cello bags from Nashville Wraps are certified biodegradable & compostable. I tried several card companies and was unable to download my logo on several of the sites. I found 123Print to be easy to navigate and affordable. Hopefully I will be happy with the cards when they arrive! It's back to work tomorrow and the end of a nice holiday weekend....but dreams of next Saturday when I can forget about everything else and immerse myself in WOOL!
