photo design project: back to school bag tags

Time for another fun and inspiring do-it-yourself project from Ashley Campbell. Enjoy... This time of the year traditionally marks the beginning of school and getting back into more scheduled days. With school supplies gathered and sharpie in hand, I started labeling all the little possessions headed to school with my kids. The teachers always appreciate a clearly labeled backpack, but it is hard to find tags that are fun and durable. This year I choose to use the Artful Thoughts for Dry Erase Memo Boards product to create personalized tags my kids would love and their teachers would appreciate. Supplies: glossy photo paper access to a laminating machine hole punch ribbon or string I reduced the size and cropped the "Take A Memo" and "Messages" products to create my tags. After I created 8.5x11 documents to hold several tags on one sheet, I printed my tags at home with photo paper. Next, I trimmed the tags and laminated each one. Most office supply stores, printing stores and teacher resource stores have laminating services. It cost me less than $.10 each for laminating. Finally, I punched a hole in each tag and attached them to backpacks using ribbon and twine. While I was creating tags I also printed a few of the chore charts and laminated those, as well. Now I am organized and ready for school to be underway!

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”

I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
