CanningCrafts in the Press!

There's a short writeup about CanningCrafts in the Modern Farmer Fall 2015 magazine. This is my first press mention, so it's exciting. They did a nice photoshoot showing my Grow What You Eat canning jar label. I have a series of Victory Garden labels inspired by the art from WWII.

Paws off, this issue belongs to Tuna Fish Joe!

I started designing my own canning labels when I couldn't find anything nice to dress up my salsa jar gifts. My husband told me to just write on the lids with a Sharpie, but I just couldn't do that! I just had too many people to impress with my salsa and art skills. I think my husband had ulterior motives too...he loves my salsa and just wanted to keep it all for himself.

My awesome Dad said I should sell my labels since there would be other canners out there in need of them. So I opened up my Etsy shop with a whopping 5 label designs. Then I created my own website. My product offering has now ballooned to over 300 items since I started in 2010. I'm always refining and adding new mason jar labels to my shop.

If anyone has any specific requests for label designs, shoot me a message or add it in the comments below.
