About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

I'm in love with LABELERS!

I became aware of a deal on THIS labeler through a facebook site I've liked.  I got it for a whopping $18.00 through this deal to include the shipping!  It arrived today so I couldn't resist plugging it in and playing with it.

It boasted that it was a plug and play - and it wasn't lying.  I plugged it in and it immediatly began installing the software.  It opened the software and it was ready to get to typing.  I loved that it had the feature to use the fonts already installed on my computer.  It also lets you put GRAPHICS (!) on the labels.  I can't wait to finally use it for something constructive and NOT just playing!

Here is a picture of my original labeler and the new one.
A screen shot of the what the program looks like - kind of like word.
Here are the first three labels that I made.  Isn't the middle label COOL!  A graphic file from lettering delights is all that I used.  Now I need to buy bigger label tape...1/2 in isn't going to be very fun if I can add graphics!
