As I was packing it to go in the post I realised that I hadn't done any swing tags for my jewellery and that my current swing tags for my bags are too big.
The pendants are all packed in a sweet little tin and the pendant nestled in kimono silk. The customer has a choice of coloured, black or red silk. They did also have a choice of a clear or kimono covered top.
I played around for a while. During the process I discovered that I have somehow misplaced all of my woven labels that I would have liked to have incorporated. I continued to obsess and came up with a swing tag I liked, only to realise that attaching things to a round tin is not so easy. It looks pretty cute (sorry, I didn't take a photo of it before I sent it), but I still wasn't totally happy.
Now, this is what I've come up with. All of the lids will be covered in kimono fabric and my name included. For the short term, I will have to use these labels I've printed onto fabric through my computer, but once I get more woven labels, will use them. The woven ones have Kimono Reincarnate written in red on a black background - much more striking. Or... even better, if Gocco can print finely enough, I'll print my name in black onto recycled red kimono silk. In my business, I'm trying to use recycled materials as much as possible.
And this folks is why I never seem to get anything done. I had this afternoon off and rather than list some things in the store, do some washing, clean the kitchen and answer some emails, I've created one tin, one tin only.
