Let me just start with this little insight into my simpleton ways: The joy I get when I open my inbox to find a “Your order has shipped” subject line that wasn’t there before makes me want to jump on the desk and do a little song and dance. Most of the time even more so than those “fwd:fwd:fwd My BFF says this really works, send it to 6,347,774 people and your dreams will come true and you can follow/like them on facebook and win $5,465…”
Ridiculous, I am aware.
And because I am a giving person, I would like to give the opportunity for others to share in my joy, only they aren’t being shipped to you, just me. I am very giving like that:

Theoretically, they can be shipped to you – just buy something from my shop (more things are being added bit by bit) – and you will find one in your handmade goodie. Or have a cute kid/be pregnant and I will likely make them something – I am a softy for baby bumps and cute babes.
Some folks may think this is a little bit of putting the cart before the horse, considering my shop is slow going and my stuff isn’t exactly flying off the shelf, so to speak.
A girl can dream – and be legal.
It was brought to my attention by my fellow sewing mama, Liz, that the government frowns upon sketchy children’s clothing/items – go figure – so they made some rules. One of them is that your items that you sell must possess the company name, place it was made, and when – along with the consumer must be provided with the material and a batch number in the packaging. This is all to protect the buyer as well as the seller – translated: label your junk so you don’t get sued for faulty materials and such.
So my labels are coming! Woo hoo! It will take me a while to go through these, but I am hoping that before the Farmer’s Market starts up again, I can come up with a fun logo and print some more. But for now, these will put a large pep in my step. And I may just dance on the desk (or whatever tall surface is around – counter, changing table, couch) when Chris brings them to me in the mail.
