a thank you and a grand opening.

Y'all, seriously. Woke up this morning to a sweet little message from Molly over at Lessons with Laughter telling me that she had awarded me the Liebster Award! What a kind and thoughtful gift, Molly! Thank you for reading my blog and passing this little award on to me! Josh from Mr. B.'s Beach Brains was certainly right to give the award to you!

But let's back up a little bit - if you are like me, you probably said "The what-ster award?" But Molly wouldn't leave us hanging. She tells us that the Liebster Award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers and passed from Blogger to Blogger, each hand picked by the previous recipient. It originated in Germany and means dearest or beloved, and Liebe is the word for love. <3

Now, let me step down from my pedestal for a moment to share some other exciting news with y'all! I have had so many requests for my labels that I thought the best thing to do would be to open up a little Teachers Pay Teachers store. Click on the icon to the right, or the linked text in the previous sentence, and it will take you directly to my store page! I have uploaded all of my label images for you to download FOR FREE (at least for now) so grab them while you can!

Once you have downloaded the images, you may simply import them into the program of your choice (Microsoft Word, Power Point, etc.).

Browse to the file name or thumbnail image (I have selected the image highlighted in blue in the following screen) and select "Insert".

The image will then appear on your page. Now that it's there, create a text box.

Place the text box on top of the image so that you may insert any text you wish! Once the text box is inserted, you may format the font name, color, and size at your leisure.
*One note, be sure that your text box has "no line" and "no fill" - this will insure that the entirety of the label image is visible and not obstructed in any way.

Now that we've all had a quick, crash course in label-making, head on over to my TPT Store and start downloading! I hope y'all will enjoy the labels! Please leave me a comment if you download the labels - I would love to know how you plan to use them!


  1. Congrats on your award!! Thanks so much for the labels. I can't wait to organize my pantry.


  2. Just downloaded all your labels! They are so cute! And congrats on opening up your TPT store! I have yet to add things to mine... :)
