a Kawaii Cute Fruits give-away!!

as promised.








I really enjoy making gift tags! They're practical, super cute and the perfect finish for any gift. When I was about 5 years old, I had 2 dream jobs. One was to work for Crayola, naming the different colors of crayons and markers. :) Seriously, how cool would that be!! The second job was to gift wrap presents. (ahh, the dreams of a 5 year old :) Even after all these years, I still am so in love with papers and ribbons, and making gifts look pretty!!



So lets hear it, what was your dream job as a kid?!! I'll do a random number pick from the comments on Friday!!

I guess in some ways it was to be an artist seeing as how the entire house and all of the furniture was my palette!!!
But really, I dreamed of being a beautician.

Hmmmm, I think I wanted to be a teacher or a beautician when I was younger, but I became neither. My dream job as an adult is to be a paper namer...the person that comes up with all the fun names for designer papers! Sort of like your color crayon name comer-upper! Thanks for the chance to win the tags...I just found your blog on 2Peas, so this is my first time here! Love your work!

When I was little I wanted to be a Marine Biologist... I LOVED going to Sea World. NOW... I'm terrified of the ocean. I've been dying to do a triatholon but haven't because of the Pacific Ocean. :(

Himena said...

I like pretty and cute stuff so I used to play with my friends that I become the owner and my friends become customer or the other way around.
(I used my favorite stuff for the fake shop and wrapped with newspaper etc...:-)
So I wanted to be a shop owner of variety store (trinket stuff, pretty frames, cutey mini boxes, craft stuff, cute memo notes &pents etc...) and make people Happy!

My dream job as a child was to be a professional clothes designer for BARBIE!! lol! I cannot tell you how many hours I spent sewing tiny clothes for my best gal Barbie! lol! And funny thing is that now as an adult I cannot stand to sew! lol!

Thanks for the fun!

Kimm said...

As a young child I wanted to work for Barbie either making clothes or funiture. I also wanted to be a teacher and we played school all the time. Now that I teach high school, it's not always dreamy but I wouldn't trade it!

The tags are so adorable with the bright colors and great fabric!!

Brenda said...

I always wanted to be an artist. Any kind just be able to create... I had a fascination with painting when I was little and now I LOVE photography. I am a teacher now (also endorsed in art besides other) and I love it... can't wait to go back to work when the kids grow up.

SuLyLa said...

I wanted to own an ice cream store, specifically a 31 flavors, Baskin Robbins ice cream store. :)I had an ice cream toy set that I used to dream it would actually be real and I would scoop all the chocolate chip ice cream, I'd have a dog named chip and of course, my favorite color was brown at the time. LOL.

Blanc said...

Hehe, really nice question:) Guess what? I wanted to work in a stationery shopXD! Pens, pencils, colours, letter sets, stamps...oh my, I still go totally crazy if I think about it. Even if I am 20 now, whenever I see a stationery shop I absolutely want to go and have a look. And my friends HATE me when I act like thisXD

wendyb said...

As a child I always wanted to be a game show host(ess)...'The Price Is Right' is my favorite.

Thanks for the fun idea!

Amy said...

Growing up I spent years in my mom's classroom helping her and I always dreamed of being a teacher. When I graduated there was no market and I ended up selling insurance. Now that is one thing that never entered my dreams! LOL!! :)
