About my canning labels...
So many great questions and e mails I've received asking about my canning labels. I went round and round in how best to share these with you, and in the end, I'm providing custom labels to my fellow food preservers via my Etsy store.
I experimented with a few different types of labels for our own canned goods, and in the end, liked these the most for their utilitarian use. I've tried tying tags on, but that's too fussy. And they don't always stay on. I don't like the adhesive on the jars themselves because I like to re use the jars, and getting them and the adhesive off is a pain. These are so simple because they're designed 12-up per 8.5x11 sheet, color coded with the product that's in the jar, and has simple space for name of product, what goes in it, and a date. No waxing eloquently, just simple, straight forward, with great typography and classic imagery.
If you'd like some custom labels made for you, head over to my Etsy shop. I have four colors up and available: green, plum, orange and red. If you need something different, you just say the word.
And thank you for all of the kind words and inquiries about them! Happy preserving.

You are way too talented Lelo. Now how about selling some of those preserves on your etsy site?
What a great idea!
They are so beautiful! I have been a canning fiend and most of my jars are naked, it's pretty sad. I even have labels my husband made... I'm just that sad. :)
Lelo, I am ALL OVER this action. Will email!
These are so lovely! My 7 year old daughter and I designed our labels this year--lots of clip art and she chose the designs and colors. Yours are considerably more...tasteful. Either way, what fun to dress those jars up, no?
These are the prettiest I've seen.
Very nice work!
