I <3 Flapjack!

I was busy creating some new resin goodies in my workshop about an hour ago when I realized I was about to miss the Har Har Tharsdays lineup (as Cartoon Network puts it), which tops off with the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack!
This amazing Newish (premiered this past June) cartoon created by cartoonist Mark "Thurop" Van Orman, is definitely my new cartoon favorite, the artwork is fresh and creative (and inspiring!!), the cheezy jokes make me giggle (or is it just Flapjack's voice and mannerisms?), and instead of guzzling down beer everyone in town noshes on candy at 'Peppermint Larry's'! I love it!!

Flapjack is on at 8:30pm on Cartoon Network, new episodes on Tharsday (said in my best pirate impression)! How adorable is Flapjack?!

Making Your Own Product Hang Tags

Make your own simple no fuss header cards...while adding pizzaz to your handmade products!

1. design your header card in photoshop or other photo editing program (or hire a graphic designer to design one for you), make sure they fit into whatever downloadable template your printing company uses (it's a bear to edit it to fit later, you may have to start all over again, not fun).

2. order up some business size cards from your favorite printing company.

3. fold your new 'business card' in half and staple it around a necklace's chain, or most business cards fit perfectly folded over a 2" plastic baggie, staple away!

You can also punch a hole on top to hang your product from a display (be sure to allow room for this above your main images so you don't end up punching a hole in your logo!).

This will give your product a more polished professional look and only cost a few pennies more per item, plus it's uber fun to shift pics around in photoshop and dyo (design your own)!
