I have been eyeballing this bit of antique ledger paper ephemera for a little while, trying to figure out what the heck to do with it. I found it on The Vintage Moth a great lil' site for free downloadable ephemera goodies. Yesterday it came to me that it would make a perfectly lovely background for an envelope label wrap. This would be so clever for a couple that loves vintage and perhaps accounting? Speaking of accounting, did I mention I nearly got canned the other day for nada? (that's nothing, rien, zip). Really. Sheesh. It scared the mascara off my lashes! Totally can't afford the old heave ho anytime soon. It got me thinking though about how much I don't really like my job because of the precarious mood swings I am privy to. Not mine, but the ol' head honcho's. I guess I was feeling comfortable with my uncomfortableness in this j.o.b.. I really like having a job though, just not this one any longer. So, I am on a 'Free Miss B.' exit plan. Baby steps. We opened up The Bella Bella co. again and will be offering the envelope wrap labels as pdf downloads while we are putting our finishing touches on our Besotted Brand offerings. We only started adding so there are only three designs as of today but let me tell ya by the end of the weekend I shall have that shop stocked! We decided on the pdf because it would be easier on me while I am under fluorescent lights all day in my utility closet/office with no access to the outside world. The pdf is immediate, we know all about the desire for instant gratification 'round these parts. The pdf's in the shop (we believe) are reasonably priced ($5 USD) and for a small additonal fee can be customized with your return address, color changes or a specialty size. We are trying to cover designs from mod to traditonal. So if you have any suggestions for designs, colors combo's, etc. let me know, I will need some creative boosts so I can get this party started. If you don't wanna see me blahg'ing from the side of the road tell your friends, family members and complete strangers to get their label download on!
And for your patience and allowing me this forum to ramble on aimlesslessly here is your link to download the ledger labels for NADA!
On another note but stil in the 'something for nothing realm'. I got sooooo many kind emails about the pastel ferris wheel photograph below (thank you) and questions if I sold the photo and could it be put on canvas etc. I have to say I was REALLY flattered because the whole photo thingy is so new to me and that anyone would want a photograph by moi had be all choked up (in the best way possible). I decided that I don't have the time at this moment to print this photo and make sure the color is right and the papers are just so BUT maybe you do? So I am offering a link for the hi-res version you can download and print to the cows come home. There's lot's of great places where you just have to upload the jpg and they will print on pretty much anything. Like Zazzle (I know horrible, horrible name). I will try to add the image to our Zazzle (cringe) account so you won't have to do much if you wanna go that route. If you click on the image it will take you to the download link and you can print it out at the office home or where ever you like...
Wishing you a happy weekend!!!!
