What's my name?

When you are in job search you are supposed to network. You are encouraged to get out there and meet the people who could lead to your next job. At a lot of events you are given a name tag.

When you go to the unemployment office you are given a name tag to identify where you should be sent for classes or seminars or appointments with a counselor. This tag doesn't have your actual name on it - you might say it's "for office use only."

You even pick up a name tag of sorts when you go to the deli counter at the grocery store. If you are not a super regular customer or are not the kind that will chat up the deli guy you may only be known as 92.

At a recent networking event I added the brand "graphic designer" to my name tag and a lot more people talked to me or asked me questions then would have if I had just added my name and I got the thinking about the number of names/brands I have in the world. That thought process is what lead to this page.

I used the work sister and daughter twice because I have 2 sisters and 2 parents If I had a bigger family the word sister would have been used more often. This page may be a work in progress, when I get more name tags I may add them.

Even the silly nickname one of my sisters call me is on the page. See the little flag?


Well I have to go get another name tag.
The particulars
Paper: Patterned Paper retired SU, Brilliant Blue cardstock from SU
Stamps: Wonderful favorites, and Amazing to Zany and Priceless from SU
Embellishments: flotsam and jetsam of life

Happy Crafting,
