Let’s get one thing straight right from the get go. You will probably not consider this post to be the most earth shattering you’ve ever seen from me. I certainly don’t.
This post wouldn’t even be considered earth shattering if it were written by a tube sock.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s cute … I’m not embarrassed by it. I am embarrassed by the fact that it took me 4 tries to spell embarrassed correctly. I’m kindda tired.
I had a very busy day today that involved a trip into the big city of Toronto, taping a studio segment with Steven & Chris and then a meeting at a television production company. I met with a lovely woman there. A couple of years ago I met with a certain man at the production company. He spotted me in the hallway today and said “Hey! I know you! You’re Karen. Your hair looks better than when I met you before.” Um.
I didn’t take offence. My hair did look bad the day I met this guy 2 years ago. I just figured I was the only one who’d remember that. More than anything, I was impressed with his ability to recognize bad hair.
Onto the “not mind shattering post”!
I bought a scented candle on my way home from the big city today. I felt I needed the soothing scents of pumpkin and spices. But when I got it home I grew to hate the label on the candle, with a force I normally reserve for Rob Schneider movies.
I hated that label.
Martha Stewart sells scented candles like this now, where the labels peel right off. So I peeled off the almost unpeelable label.
I still hated it. It looked nude.
So I went to my Dollarama box and pulled out one of my favourite things. A tube of peel and stick chalkboard.
It is literally a tube of chalkboard that you can peel the backing off of and stick anywhere.
One of the 1,476,533 great things about this peel and stick chalkboard is that the backing has a grid on it so you can cut perfectly accurate rectangles and squares.
So I cut myself a new rectangular label.
And then I stuck it to my bald jar.
And then of course the fun part … writing on it with chalk. Because I’m 5. I wrote the scent of the candle. In case one day my nose goes blind.
Not one to limit myself to squares and rectangles … and feeling you shouldn’t either … may I present, Mr. Happy Snowman Chalkboard Label.
So grab yourself a tube of $1 self adhesive chalkboard and get labelling! It’s fun. Not earth shattering, but certainly fun.
