Label Extras/Process

Just found these kicking around while cleaning up my hard drive and thought they might be nice to show. These are a few of the other label ideas I had come up with for the label job for In The Oven Caramels. The one they choose you already saw in the last post of course. ( pink lines indicated ideas for their designer to place text, etc) Yep.

Label Illo for [In The Oven]

Recently I had the pleasure of making a label illustration for the fun ladies from In The Oven gourmet caramels. The label is for a special limited edition of spiced caramels they are selling this season. Their caramels are deeeee-licious and I hear their new coconut chips are also pretty awesome:)

Currently the limited edition packs are being sold at Norton Commons in Kits, Panier Picnic in Victoria and Organic Acres on Main.

Where Does the Time Go & Sessional Faculty at ECUAD

Where does the time go indeed? I’ve been asking myself that a lot lately. Is it under the couch somewhere? Do parts of it fall in between the cushions and then just vanish? Do I accidentally throw fractions of it out when I take the garbage out or wash bits away when doing my laundry? WHAT is going on?

Some of the mystery of this time theft might be answered by the fact that I am now not only teaching classes in the Contintuing Studies department at ECUAD, but also  as sessional faculty in curriculum classes. Who would have thought that 9 years after graduating from Emily Carr I am back to be one of those bothersome teachers;). And even though I’ve been teaching classes in Continuing Studies for three years prior to this I still catch myself from time to time when i have all these kids staring at me while I’m talking, where I”m thinking…is this for real? But…alas it is and I have to say that I’m getting used to it a lot quicker than I thought I would. Being a teach is pretty neat:) Then of course it is also Fall thus the busiest part of my life as online shop owner for my entrepreneurial undertaking Draw Me A Lion. So I guess when teaching three courses and having to send out catalogues and ship off orders it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise that time is short at hand… But it’s still uncanny how quickly it seems to move lately… could it be that it has to do something with that getting older thing that some of you were telling me about? Let’s hope not!
