Discoveries on Thursday

This week's Three on Thursday is all about ...
Mostly about new things I found on the web

1.  Unabashedly Prep

I love Preppy Stuff ... I am an 80s girl what can I say 
So when I stumbled across this website, I was super happy.
This blog site is by a very cute preppy guy 
Fred Castleberry ... ohhh yah his name alone is so preppy!

Oh well his site is oozing with preppiness and fashion inspiration.
Try dropping by to see what I mean.

Here's another blog site which I really can't remember how 
I came across ... but I'm pretty glad I did.
This blog site is by Katie Sokoler ... a freelance photographer
and street artist.
Her work had been featured on various
magazines and news paper like Glamour & New York Magazine.
The title of her blog is a very good description of her site.
Her site is indeed very very colorful!
I love it because it has a lot of pictures about her crafts, street art,
things she did in her apartment and other fun stuff with friends.
Her pictures are wonderful.
Don't hesitate to take a peek.

3.  Kiel James Patrick
This is a website that sells belts and bracelets.
What caught my attention was this particular bracelet on their
intro page.
This is a rope sailor bracelet with a simple square knot.
The best thing about this design is the Anchor toggle lock.

Their bracelets also have sizes from 6.5 inches until 8.5 inches.
Their products are 100% USA made.
Check it out.

How about you my friends ... any Discoveries this week?

Dymo Caption Maker

(click on photo to view larger)

The second I saw this online, I was jumping up and down 
with excitement.  Finally a label embosser with different fonts!!!

I have a Dymo Label Embosser but the original small version
I am quite happy with my old one but when I saw the Caption
Maker I know I gotta have it.
I ordered it at Amazon and this is how it looked like:

1. Pouch ... not really to store the labeler but for the discs and tapes
2. Labeler
3. Black Embossing Tape
4. Three wheels or discs

It also comes with a manual with step by step photographed directions.

The 3 interchangeable wheels are:
Upper Case

Lower Case

Script Font

Symbols (included with the Script Font)

It is also Acid Free

A sample of the upper case wheel

The best part of this thingamajig is the interchangeable wheel
which means you can mix the fonts in one label ... woohoo

I am very happy with the Caption Maker.
I got it at Amazon for $17 but when you go to the Dymo website
it is $24.

I just wish that the pouch is big enough to hold the labeler and
I also wish they will have more wheels/discs available in the 
future with different fonts and characters.

So if you are planning to get one, I highly recommend this!
