Handmade Christmas Challenge

Posting early due to a repeat of footy grandfinals tomorrow with an expected house full of guests yelling at the top of their lunges! Go Collingwood (for the sake of my sanity).

Today, its all about labels - free downloadable labels to be exact. With such gorgeous images like these, I'm sure it will inspire you to pickle, squeeze and fill beautiful jars, cans and boxes full of Christmas treats.

I ask you - have you ever seen anything sweeter than this gorgeous canning label? These gorgeous labels are from the very talented Amy from Eat Drink Chic.

These rustic handmade tags from Domestifluff are found here.

These cheerful labels are very versatile; they have a box that you fill in yourself with the contents and date of your canned item. They even have Christmas inspired labels to boot. All downloadable at A Sonoma Garden.

Perhaps you like the provincial style of label. This one and many others found here.

Got any good gift ideas for a bloke?
Megan from Somewhere Along a Winding Path needs your help over here for some handmade creative ideas to buy her man for Christmas.

(OOPS I just tried posting a comment and it seems to have disappeared into cyberspace - my apologies if 2 get posted!)

I think I need to get a new printer because I can never print off goodies like these - they come out looking like crap. Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas, lol.

I'd sure love to be on someone's gift list if they're giving away handmade cherry jam - DELICIOUS!

A small tag can make a simple gift into a precious gift. Also it is so useful for the recognizing the proper thing.

Why people do not use plastic key tags for scratching the cards?
