A few weeks ago, I decided that the unorganized state of our kitchen needed immediate action. “It won’t take long,” I told my boyfriend as I rolled up my sleeves and emptied the shelves from all the many jars filled with spices and herbs. Most of them didn’t have any labels. “Now, that won’t do,” I thought, got some paper and sat down on the floor with a pen, ready to make some pretty labels. “Why wouldn’t you design the labels digitally and then just print them out?” my boyfriend asked. “You could even add a nice pattern for the background,” he added. “Okay,” I said. “Let’s go all the way, then!”
Without a clear plan, I started playing with some simple geometric shapes and bright candy colours. After some experimenting, the trial-and-error-approach gave some rather nice results. Obviously, the efficient “this won’t take long” reorganizing project got a bit out of hand, but my inner Martha Stewart really loved the process! Last week I finally had the time to paste the labels on the jars. I’m quite glad with the end result – not only are our kitchen shelves cleaner, but they are also a lot more playful now!
And guess what: you can join the jar decoration movement right now! What a better way to celebrate the end of 2016 than reorganizing the kitchen shelves, eh? To pimp your jars, simply click to my FREEBIES-page, print out the designs and glue them on your jars.
Merry printing & happy New Year!
