3 Simple Summertime Crafts for Adults

Posted on

The long summer days are the perfect time to unleash your inner artist. Here are some fun and simple summertime crafts that we’d love to share with you!

Tie-Dye Summer Clothing

Now that the ‘90s fashion trends are making a huge comeback, tie-dye clothing is once again the epitome of summer attire. This psychedelic print became especially popular during our quarantine period when everyone dove into home projects to take advantage of the extra time on their hands. With quarantine restrictions slowly but surely easing up, we can’t think of a better time to show off your summer style. The best part is that tie-dye works on almost all natural fibers, such as cotton and silk, so you can enhance everything from your favorite t-shirt and shorts to your beach towels. 

Crochet Swimsuit Cover-Up

Swimsuit cover-ups are a beach essential! They can provide some much-needed protection from the summer sun or help you feel more comfortable walking through common areas, like the pier or an outdoor beach bar, without fully dressing up. If you’re handy with a pair of crochet needles, you can avoid crowded stores and make your own at home!

We recommend using acrylic and cotton blend yarns because they dry quickly and are comfortable for all-day wear. Just like any other garments you own, your swimsuit cover-up wouldn’t be complete without a personalized fabric label

Spool Monogram

Here’s a fun and simple decoration that’s perfect for craft lovers everywhere: a spool monogram! The only materials you’ll need to create this piece of decor are:

  • Large cardboard sheet
  • Hot glue gun
  • Colorful arrangement of spools
  • Extra: paint

First, cut out your cardboard sheet into the shape of your chosen initial(s) and, if you wish, paint it in your favorite color. Then, hot glue the spool ends to the cardboard surface until the whole initial is covered in spools. Ta-da! Your craft is complete. Just wait for it to dry, and you can hang it in your study or gift it to a friend. 

Don’t forget to put your unique mark on your summer crafts, whatever they may be, just like every other great artist before you. It’s Mine! Labels has a wonderful selection of labels for crafters to choose from. Order online today!

Tips for Easing a Loved One’s Transition to Assisted Living

Posted on

As coronavirus restrictions gradually loosen, assisted living facilities across the nation are beginning to reopen. If you’ve been planning to move an elderly parent or loved one into a nursing home, you’re most likely feeling the strain that often accompanies these life-altering transitions. 

You’re not just concerned about your loved one’s physical health, but also their emotional well-being as they leave their familiar surroundings behind and start a new, somewhat frightening chapter among strangers in a smaller living space.

We understand. At It’s Mine Labels, we designed our personalized nursing home clothing tags to help people like you, in a small way, with this big step. While many aspects of the transition are out of your control, you can make the process a little bit easier on your family member. 

This infographic illustrates a few simple suggestions.

As you’re packing up your loved one’s belongings to make the move to assisted living, consider browsing our website. Our custom clothing labels for seniors are beautiful, practical and durable, and able to withstand the rigors of the nursing home’s heavy-duty laundry machines. 

Our labels come in a number of different fabrics, and if you’re wondering what kind of label is best for different items, we suggest sew-on labels for knitted articles, such as sweaters (glue won’t stick), and smooth, iron-on labels for undershirts, bed and bath linens. We also offer snap-on clothing tags that are removable and reusable.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance with an order. We wish you and your loved one a smooth and healthy transition to nursing home life. 

How to Help Prepare Your Child for Summer Camp in the Age of COVID-19

Posted on

After spending the spring more or less confined to the house and yard, using their bedroom as a makeshift classroom, and seeing more of their parents and siblings than they’d probably prefer, we’re willing to bet your child is bursting with excitement for summer camp.

Many states are loosening COVID-19 restrictions and allowing camps to open. That’s good news! However, you can’t simply send your child off with the same carefree attitude as in past years. The coronavirus continues to impact people all over the globe, and even as life begins its gradual return to “normal,” it’s important to be extra vigilant about your child’s health and safety while they’re out in the world among their peers.

Be sure to call ahead to find out about your camp’s specific requirements and restrictions. Then, as you pack up your child’s belongings, make sure that they’re fully prepared with all of the items in this infographic:

Camps are about to begin, and there’s not much time before your child heads off for a summer full of fun — and a little bit more freedom. Fortunately, it doesn’t take long to browse the It’s Mine! Labels website and find the perfect custom summer camp labels to personalize your child’s belongings. We offer a variety of options, from stick-on clothing labels to durable bag tags, all of which can be customized with your child’s name and even a useful contact number to help ensure misplaced items are returned!

We invite you to browse through our selection of personalized labels for kids clothes and to contact us if you have any questions or need help with your order. From all of us at It’s Mine! Labels, we wish you a healthy and enjoyable summer season!
