Only five people entered the blue label giveaway and their entries are as follows:
Carolyn said she "could find a 100 uses"
Lizzy said: " on the doors of those rentable mailboxes in the post office, to make your box feel more homey
Mechelle said: "they would be precious on children's bedroom doors; this room belongs to...
Chris said "on the inside of a wardrobe door so you get a nice surprise when you open it.
And Seth said:
1. Inside a piano lid on the wood - I sold my piano last year and wished that I had left something on it to say it was mine.
2. Music scores.
3. Inside a hard instrument case for a violin/guitar etc.
4. On the back of a newly framed art work.
5. Back of a mounted butterfly.
This was no easy task. It involved a long LONG and LENGTHY process of me and the pens deliberating, fighting, spitting, hugging, drawing straws, banging out heads against the wall, renouncing our heritage, refusing to write again etc etc. But came to the conclusion that it is a TIE between Lizzy and Seth. That said I loved ALL the ideas; and was so touched that you took the time to enter one...
I like Lizzy's idea because it would solve the problem of forgetting your post-office box number;
And Seth because I love the idea of putting a label inside a piano or an instrument case, and because I'm in sheer wonder at how one would look on the back of a mounted butterfly.
Congratulations to you both!
Email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you both your labels.
I have given them more thought and come up with a few ideas of my own:
*on carrier pigeons/babies/little people
*rather wittily on a public wall: "this wall belongs to everyone" not to advertisers pft pft.
*stuck on the toilet doors at uni; however hard it may be to compete with the MANY other watchamagig signs that are politically correct and smarmy. Believe it or not it IS nice to see something different and aesthetically pleasing on those doors.
And if you're really inspired now
as you should be,
you will find the wee labels in my etsy shop!
