In mid 2004, recommended by another blog, I came across Name Maker labels. It was an extravagance at the time, but I thought it would be fun to have labels to put in my handknits and my sewing projects so I ordered up a small batch. The first time I sewed one into something that I had made, I was hooked. There's a funny little thrill that I get sewing MY NAME into my project. I suppose it's ego stroking, but I like it just the same.
It's odd because I've had a post about the labels in draft for a few months now but I never pulled the trigger to publish it because the timing didn't seem quite right. I have no idea what I was waiting for, but this week it all fell into place. Yesterday I was contacted by Name Maker (!) and asked if they could use some of my photos to help promote a contest they're going to have in April. They are going to have people submit pictures of how they are using Name Maker products. Mine are the ones that they're using to get the contest up and running. I'm so excited! Check it out! Those are my mini wallets featured on the front page!
Now I know why I waited to hit 'post!'
