If you are following along with me on Instagram, you got to see a sneak peek of this project I was working on while watching me some Olympics. This is one project that I have been super excited to get completed. I LOVE anything that involves organization, labels and jars. Don’t you? It makes my heart feel happy!
I had an antique Dr. Pepper crate that I had been using in my office to organize some of my craft supplies, but it was hidden away behind a cupboard door. It is too fun to be hidden away.
Then one day I realized that it would make a perfect spice rack. I had been slowly buying my new spices in these cute spice jars from Target. They are in the spice aisle and the Archer Farms brand. The jars fit perfectly.
Now, of course, I HAD to make some labels for the lids so that I could see what the spices were and to give them some extra oomph!
Don’t you think they look so pretty? Almost too pretty to use…
Ha! With a big family, we do tend to go through some of these spices rather quickly. So we do buy a lot of them in bulk from Costco and then I just store the bigger bottles in the cupboard directly above these spices, but the big bottles get hidden away. I just refill the smaller ones when they get low.
So far it has been a great system. It is also much easier to find the spices we need rather than trying to dig through each one in a crowded cupboard. Well, I want to share these labels with you. Even if you don’t have a vintage soda crate to store them in, there are several different options and spice racks you can use. Or just put the round labels on your current spice jars to fancy them up a bit.
Let me just talk candidly with you all for a moment though. I have been disheartened for several months lately with people who have been taking my photos, and free downloads and SELLING them. It is really very frustrating and I have gone back and forth about how to combat it.
This is why I run my printables through my FB page. It has made a difference in the amount that I have seen, but it is still happening. This is illegal and is a violation of copyright and has made me wonder if I should quit sharing with all of you here. BUT…I really don’t want to punish ALL of us due to a few dishonest people. I feel like the people who are involved in this dishonesty are people who are finding it through Pinterest and don’t realize just how small the internet can be in the DIY/Craft world.
When you visit my site and share my site with others, your traffic earns me some income. I really appreciate all of you who are here and have been loyal followers. I would not be able to continue to do this without you!! I want to be able to continue creating and sharing with you, because I absolutely LOVE it! It is my dream job!
So, on some of my bigger projects, I will be offering the printables FREE for a limited time, and then will move them into my shop. This is a lot of extra work for me, but I am hoping it will help eliminate some of the problem. So, this really shouldn’t effect the rest of you who are following along. Just make sure if you see something you want, grab it before it goes in the shop. Also…please always send your friends and family to my site to grab something for themselves rather than sharing it with them. I feel like that is a fair trade to make for you to continue getting freebies…right?! We will see how well this solves the problem and go from there! THANK YOU ALL for your patience with this!
*Update–The time has expired and the labels have now been moved to The Idea Room Store. Thank you!
