label, originally uploaded by scary_mary.

Merry Bee!

These are the labels I have made for my fledgling business.

I have been gently persuaded (thanks Jeanette and others) to start selling the things I craft so here I go!

Choosing a name was one of the hardest things I had to do. I didn't want bags in the name even though I plan on selling them I thought having it in the name would limit the scope of what I could sell.

I didn't want to include the children's names because I want it to just be about me and my craft. You can lose a lot of your identity when you have children, I am just a mum to a lot of people not a person in my own right. This is my way of trying to regain a bit of that back.

The name evolved from part of my name, Mary B but that has already been used by a number of people.

Now to figure out what I am going to make...................

I'm so glad you are taking the pliunge, can't think why you didn't go with "Mary's Fun Bags" though!!

Hi Mary!!! These are so cute, did you make them yourself or order them? It makes all the difference when you put your label on it!!!!

Hi Cindy
I made these ones myself using a tutorial from Craftster. They are ok but no-where near as nice as woven labels are.
I plan on getting some woven ones soon as I think they do look more professional!
