I decided that I should begin marketing my aprons. My intelligent brother, Jacob, pointed out that I should have a tag if I intended to sell. He called it a "hang tag". Thus the process of developing such a tag began. Slogans and ideas were bounced around, tags were drawn, logos were thought of and then cast aside. In the early sketches of the hang tags the samples prices were laid down between $30-$36. Yesterday I went into a store and offered them my aprons. Now they hang, with their hang tags, sporting a price of $32.

While I was home for the holidays, I was struck with the crafting fever. I couldn't stop making stuff. One project that I was particularly fond of was a handmade memory set. The photos show the interim stages of the project. The name of this blog post sounds funny to me. How can one make a memory by hand? Once you stick a, set, on to the end of the sentence it sounds fine. But with out the set it sounds like I''m trying to recreate the world.
