Glossy Labels. This material is often used by the food and beverage industry. This material is very flexible and is water-resistant. The material though needs to be laminated so that the ink and the label stays intact and does not run.Transparent Labels. When you want to achieve the “no label” look, this is the best choice. They often have very good adaptability to adhesives and so they are very hard to tear or rip.Foil Labels. This is often used when you want to achieve a metallic look on your label. Sometimes, a UV coating is even added to make the silver pop more.
The split screen library view allows you to pull out a panel from the left side tab in order to view all your files and saved work.  It makes it easier to click on the design you want to work  with and drag the object into your workspace.  This feature alone is a huge timesaver.  I can’t tell you  how much time I’ve wasted switching in and out of the workspace to retrieve a file or pattern.   It would get pretty annoying trying to get a design done and then get  bogged down by this back and forth feature.  This gets a 5 star rating from me.

Public domain means the images are free to share and use as you please — so these are available for you to print and frame as part of a gallery wall or any kind of wall art or decor that you can dream up! I love modern technology!

Numbers nerd. Guilty. I have always completely geeked out when working in Excel and creating spreadsheets that provide the information I need quickly and easily. I hate wasting my time in activities that do not add value and focus my efforts on being efficient as possible. My desire is to help others do the same! The files I create are tailored to the spreadsheet novice and do all the calculating for you. They are also always formatting to print out just right in case you need a hard copy.

Here and there I shared my Life Binder process on this blog. It truly was the cornerstone of how I was taking 100% responsibility for my life - a life philosophy that this blog is all about. My audience showed a lot of interest in it and I had friends constantly asking me to help them put together their own Life Binders. However, as with anything that we're really good at, I didn't consider turning it into something that other people could buy and use because, well, "it's so easy, anybody can make their own." Hahaha. *Business tip: If you ever find yourself saying that about something that you're good at, please turn it into a product. It could make you a millionaire and make a lot of people's lives better.
The thing about selling downloads is as a customer you get the product with in seconds or minutes after making the purchase. But I get there are some extra steps involved when buying digital downloads. You can also upload to various websites as opposed to goto nearest print shop. I think what I plan to do is offer both but offer the physical print as a empty order and when you order it you tell me what image you want printed. That way there is less confusion on what you are ordering.

I forgot your birthday And I'm feeling bad I forgot your birthday and now I'm so sad. I'm a silly, silly poo head Lawd, I'm a silly poo poo head I'm a silly poo poo head And I'm wishing I was dead. I forgot your birthday. You're such a good person And I like you a lot You mean so much to me Can't believe that I forgot I've been going crazy How much more can I take? I missed your birthday And I'm sure I missed the cake. I'm a silly poo poo head Lawd, I'm a silly poo poo head I'm a silly poo poo head And I'm wishing I was dead. I forgot your birthday. I'm all tore up inside. You're such a special person to me. I can't believe I've been such a silly poo poo head. Only a silly poo poo head would forget your birthday. Can you forgive me? Oh, pretty please. I'm a silly poo poo head. And I'm wishing I was dead. I forgot your birthday. Sorry about that. It won't happen again. Hope it was happy...!
At the end of that month, I was at a turning point again. I had made $1000 in passive income, yes, but I knew it was mostly due to marketing to my list. How was I going to continue to make that amount in sales? I knew I couldn't keep marketing the same product to my same list month after month. At that moment, I was at a fork in the road where I almost went down the path of "Oh, maybe I'll create something new and sell that next." Luckily, I remembered a piece of advice that prevented me from doing that. I remembered Denise Duffield-Thomas (the Get Rich Lucky Bit#h lady) talking about how women have a tendency to keep creating something new over and over instead of sticking to one core, amazing product and finding endless ways of selling the SAME thing.
Take note of color and texture. Color is a very important factor to consider when labeling your bottle. To stick with the vintage theme, rustic colors such as brown, black, and red are often used. Make sure also that the combination of colors you use does not distract from the main point of the label which is the name. Also consider some metallic textures for your bottle.Experiment with typography. The font you use for your label is also an important factor to consider. Classic fonts such as sans serif and its variations are often a good choice. Make sure the font give off a relaxing, vintage feel.Incorporate photography and art. When labeling, being minimalist has its benefits, but you can also put pictures and artworks into your labels. There are vintage bottle label templates that incorporate them seamlessly.

Pinterest is a great way to market your products, especially on Etsy. Pinterest is a very visual platform and having beautiful pictures of your product in pins is a great way to get some clicks to your shop and products that will hopefully convert into sales! Word of mouth is great too! Tell friends, family, and it’s a good idea to whip up some business cards for your Etsy shop that you can hand out to people you meet if it comes up in conversation.
Aside from the name of the product, labels are also another thing one immediately associates when a certain brand is named. Therefore, you should make an effort in creating the labels for your bottles. Whether you are labeling them for your own product to sell or just as ornamental pieces for your home, you can never go wrong with a vintage design. These tips will help you in labeling properly your bottles:
You can use your regular weight printer paper! Really! The idea of a printable is that it’s artwork that might be temporary or easy to switch out for something new. However, if you’ve fallen in love with one of my printables (aw, shucks!) and would like a more permanent piece of art, I recommend photo paper (matte), cardstock, premium (heavyweight) paper or archival paper. Make sure to check your printer settings and adjust the paper accordingly so it will not get stuck inside your printer. This is especially true for thicker paper.

One of Sarah’s biggest freelance jobs so far has been designing the Brilliant Business Planner! She landed this job by seeing a need for her service and reaching out to Sarah and Beth Anne. This is a great lesson for any entrepreneur -- it never hurts to ask. The worst thing that can happen is that someone says no, but on the flip side you could land a great job and a great partnership!
The printables I was adding to my store at that time were very inexpensive - I charged $3 at most. Throughout the month, I'd make a sale here and there. My phone had the Etsy Seller app downloaded onto it and the app would notify me of a sale by making an AMAZING "cha-ching!!" sound. I loved it even though I only made enough to pay for my fancy lattes here and there.

A little bit about this print. The Christmas Carol is my husband’s favorite Christmas movie/book of all time. Every year around Christmas we are forced asked to watch every version of the movie. Some of my kids like this tradition, others do not (I fall into this category). But it’s becoming a tradition and when I saw this book in the digital library I had to use it.
