Ever have one of those slightly weird creative moments that make you wonder if you're actually sane? I just had one of those. What happened was a little over a week ago, I got something in the mail from Lightning Labels, I must've seen it on a freebie site, and signed up to the freebie. The labels were cool and I really didn't want to toss them. Why toss something so beautiful?

The Oil Roller
I had two different sicker options when it came to this roller, they looked almost the same except for the fact that one of the stickers was shiny. I Didn't want anymore shine as I thought it would make the roller look tacky. The sticker is actually used for Lip Balm, I don't have any lip balm containers, unfortunately.
The Syrup Bottle
From the day saw the bottle and painted it, I've always said that it reminded me of a bottle of alcocol and not syrup. It was my lucky day to find a bourbon sticker along with a sticker that said "Lightning Lable's Est. 2002" I did what dreamt of doing with my old syrup bottle. The before pictures don't do it justice at all. The back looks awesome, and so does the front, even though the label didn't fit like a glove. It still looks better than it did before!
I had so many choices when it came to a label for my honey bottle. I had two differen't styles to work with and I got overwhelmed. It was either BOPP in two colors white and two different laminates; matte and gloss. Or I could use squeezable polyolefin. Both sounded cool. I ended up choosing the polyofefin over the BOPP. Mainly because of the wording

|The New and Improved Bottle|
I still have a handful of labels and some ideas floating around in my head. Hopefully, in the near future, I'll be able to come up with some new ideas and I'll be sure to post them.
