new toy

Watch out, cuz look what I got!
Yup, a DYMO label maker! The technology has really advanced since the days of the old DYMO label makers that clicked along on the vinyl tape. I have a slight urge to label everything in the house, but in case you didn’t know, I am NOT insane, so I will refrain.

    When I was 3yo, I had one of those old-fashioned date-stamps. It had 3 circular rubber strips (1 strip had the month and then 2 number rolls). They were on a revolving holder, with a wooden handle. You rolled the new date down and used an inkpad to ink it. My mom said I stamped *everything* — my napkin at the dinner table, coloring books, the TV screen, the toilet paper in the bathroom, my pajamas, etc. I think I’d better stay away from the Dymo unit 🙂

    Ah! You brought out a long forgotten memory; I used to have one of those (admittedly, a rickety version because I’m so “old” and all ;-)) and I remember labelling EVERYTHING. Literally. Have fun labelling.
    P.S. I have a favorite banana cake recipe, too. Mine utilizes sour cream. It’s always a real hit when I make it, and I like it because it gives others the incorrect idea that I’m a good cook. You want to swap?

    Is that the label-maker that can print permanent sew-in fabric labels? (It’s mentioned in a recent issue of Threads). I think you can order reels of woven labels, and print your own with the Dymo- care instructions for garments, names (as if you’re going off to summer camp)…I wanted one to make labels for the gifts I sew (“Made especially for _________, Christmas 2003” or “I love you Snookums!”)
    Have fun.

    Thank you so much for your comment and support on my blog. I am so new to blogging that I am always very surprised when someone finds me. I read yours everyday. Your wit gives me a lift. I especially appreciated the photo of the BACK of your knitting, with dog looking on. Your support means a lot…

    It kinda looks like a giant remote control. But I’m taking your word on what it is!
    To follow up on the last entry, I’ve met lots of knit bloggers and on-line fiber friends and it is totally not weird at all. Well, not for me anyways. I can’t speak to what THEY think of ME. 😉

    We want pics of labels from the DYMO maker! Can you use it to make labels for your knits? Now that would be so cooooool.
    Claudia is *weird*. There. It’s out in the open. 😉
