DIY Water Bottle Labels


For today’s project I’m making custom labels for the party this weekend. I use Pages for laying out images- it’s like a simplified Photoshop and Illustrator rolled into one.


After cutting them all out with the paper cutter, I’m affixing them to the water bottles with packing tape. Simple as that.

And normally I would be crazed about the water bottles all being uniform in size, but I know from experience that kids never notice that stuff and I might as well use up what I have left over from previous parties.

DIY T-shirts

I’m bringing the Olympic Games to Venice for my son’s upcoming 8th birthday. Needless to say, there is a lot of planning involved, especially since I decided to invite the entire second grade class! Right now I’m finishing up the team t-shirts. I am kind of obsessed with the Avery transfer paper- they are very easy to use and the results are pretty great.


DIY Wine Bottle Labels


This is the first time I’ve ever done custom labels on a bottle. I thought it would be pretty quick and easy. Cut to: search engines on the web, driving to the store for Goo Gone, hot water immersions (which I am slightly concerned will spoil the wine, but I choose to not think about that!) scraping with a sharp knife….Image

But I am pretty pleased with the final product. I’m hosting a book club inspired by the book “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?” I thought that using the “wasp” label for wine would be fun and I think Pinhole Press did a great job with the labels. I would use them again in a heart beat.

Now I’m off to glitter a bunch of raindrops for a mock Seattle in my house.

Stay tuned for pictures from the event…
