I've spent a good bit of my free time this week helping Jo make some labels for her egg business. There's a Farmer's Market tomorrow (indoors, of course) and it'll be her first chance to sell to people besides friends and our favorite pizza restaurant. She drew lots of colorful chicken pictures (and a pretty buxom version of herself!) and chose her five favorites to represent our five hens. I scanned them and then GIMPed them together into labels for her egg cartons. A little busy - but cute, no?
She wanted Wooster (her rooster) in on the action too, but he's not a "chick" so he only got placement on one of her business cards. He is authentically noisy.
She's got a gallery of ten cards to choose from - she had a great time coloring all the chickens with the fancy new Prismacolor colored pencils she got for Christmas. She came to work with me one day and used the quality colored pencils there - and promptly asked if we could throw away the cheap ones at home and replace them with Prismacolor. What can I say?
So if you're local, come see us (and lots of other farmer's market favorites) tomorrow at Mountainside Wine on Upper Street in Spruce Pine. I really hope Oak Moon Creamery will be there - I want some of their orange goat cheese for my roasted beet salad!
