LABELING - A NIGHTMARE? A NECESSARY EVIL? A WAY TO SHOW PRIDE IN YOUR WORK?  ALL OF THESE!

If you work with fiber, you're well aware of the required labeling issues.  This one thing has made many people throw up their hands and mutter, "I give up." 
 
As a guest writer on the Handmade Artists' Forum Blog, I wrote an article on what's required on labeling and how to manufacture your own labels without too much fuss.  The entire article can be seen here .  Take a peek...  you just might decide that labels aren't such a hassle after all!

Just in Case You Missed This....
 
We are all always wondering what else we can do to promote our listings, shops, ourselves.  If you haven't checked out Project Wonderful yet, you need to do so!  Project Wonderful is an advertising co-op, of sorts.  You can search for the types of sites you'd like to advertise with by category, size, hits, etc.  You choose how much you want to spend per day.  This is not a pay-per-click deal.  You can cancel adds if they're under-performing and try something else.
 
You do have to deposit some money with them to get started (minimum of $5.00).  The site generates good data, letting you know what you've spent on each ad, how many visitors have seen it, how many clicks you got, and what those clicks cost you.  You can advertise lots of places for 0¢ (not a typo!), though those are not the sites with thousands of visitors a day!
 
Visit Project Wonderful soon, and start spreading the word about your unique micro-brand in new places!
