I'm into labels

Look what finally arrived!! After 5 weeks, my new labels are here. I think they are perfect (aside from the really bright green on that one mushroom). Jessica (who designed the logo) helped to make them the right size for a label since the full logo was out of the question. These are from fancyweaver.com in Hong Kong. The prices are the best @ 200 labels for $60 (I ordered 200 small labels and 200 big labels). The big ones are for...big items! Duh. Like quilts and ...other big things and the small ones are for clothing and bags and softies, etc. The only drawback for me is they took 5 weeks (actually longer but I'm not counting the back and forth when working out the design with them. So the total times was actually almost 8 weeks! If you live in the states, the shipping time will be less because I had mine shipped to my military address then here.

The above photo shows the backs of the labels.
The quality is awesome. So thick and professional looking.
 Have I mentioned that Emily is a Daisy? She's a Girl Scout Daisy!! I haven't taken any photos at her meetings or events because they didn't really have uniforms..until now. Not this dress! She wore this to the Boy Scout Ball last night. The Girls Scouts were invited as "escorts". Sounds wrong, doesn't it?
I bought this plaid taffeta dress at the PX on clearance for $4 !! I didn't buy it for this ball, I actually got it just because it was $4 and one day one of the girls might need a nice dress and I might not be in the mood to sew one. When I sew on all her patches I'll take a photo of Emily in her "uniform". 
You have to look at this website called My First Dictionary. It's really funny!

Love these! I have seriously been lusting after some personalized labels but am too afraid to design my own, I don't even know where to start. Yours look so great!

Oh my word, those are so very, very, very, fantastic! I need to get more ordered, I'm almost out.

Do you get tired of me saying how gorgeous those girls are??? Can't stop. Can't wait to Emily in her uniform.

I LOVE the labels! I really want some, I just can't decide what to put on them! How cute that they get invited to the boy scout ball!

I really like the labels and think you picked just the right part of the logo to use for them. Emily looks gorgeous of course but I am waiting for some other pictures from the ball that somebody told me they would send or post. Get on it sister :)

Thanks! mrsc1345: you don't have to get to fancy. my 1st order a couple of years ago was two words with a star between the words. I didn't draw a star I just asked them to insert a star. You can do it! Kelly: you have a design already! the one from KD designs! the line drawing of you? or a big k and on the other side of the label it could say ..soemthing else! I don't know, but you really shoudl have labels since you're making so much clothing! And it's only $60!!
