gift labels and many other things

Today my "studio" / apartment looks like a bomb hit it. Last week I didn't have enough to do, and as it always goes everything suddenly arrived at once. I've got letterpress gift tags in the making, freshly printed label sheets (just up in my shop today!), packaging goods coming out of my ears and bolts and bolts of fabric to photograph.

Here's some pics of the gift labels!





The button badges are a freebie with local orders, and the gift tags with international orders (so that I don't have to deal with customs - paper goods are much easier).

Aaaaand, to add more madness to the day, an interview I did with Triple J radio apparently starts airing today! I think it's only a minute long and gets aired a few times during the week. So I'm keeping an ear out. Gee I really hope I don't sound stupid. The interviewer Jen was really lovely and she said she'd do her best to make me sound good, but hopefully I gave her enough good material to work with! You can read the accompanying online article here. I say "artsy crafty" way too much.

Looks as though I'm a tad late commenting on this post! I've been attached to your fabrics for some time now and just found your blog.

I'm in the middle of trying to design my wedding invites (as someone who is not actually a graphic designer), and I saw these gift tags... the little sprigs with leaves and those tiny little birdies are exactly what i've imagined!

by any chance do you still have the images you used for these? would you consider letting me purchase the image from you for printing my invites? I'm going to print them myself using gocco.

either way, your blog and all your things are so lovely!
