Along similar lines

Do you remember how I was making
 lots of headbands for a local shop ?
This little sideline has grown a bit .
I have been busy making stuff and didn't really
want to confuse it with my other craft adventures .
So I decided to design some new cards to go with my stock .
I wanted them to be me but not really Clare's Craftroom
as I wanted to keep production line work separate .


I still wanted my house logo that is
 on my usual business cards .


But just a little different .


Who you ask is Mabel?


Mabel is my dear old sewing machine .
This all makes perfect sense to me !
What do you think?

Oh seeing lots of crafty adventures called Mabel lately. My eldest daughter's middle name is Mabel (i'm so ahead of this, that was in the 1990's) & i'll say what i say on all the other blogs . . . remember Mad About You, when they have a baby, they call her Mabel as the dreaded mother-in-law had a moment of softness & said it stands for Mothers Always Bring Extra Love. I told my daughter this story & it has helped her spell her middle name, even now, she says that quickly 'extra love, it's EL'. Love Posie

Excellent idea Clare. I call some of my creations 'Muriel Makes' after my machine. :-)

You really live in Gundagai? Wow. Perfect card - just love it. And Mabel seems so appropriate as a name for a gorgous machine like that... so glad your little venture is so successful...

Rock 'n' Roll Clare. The card is way to cute. Totally love the Mabel idea. I instantly had this vision of a teeny weeny little old lady sitting there pumping out head bands on her trusty ol' machine. Okay, what's going on in the cellar??....LOL.....!
