Default First Attempt - Help anyone!

Don't know what I'm doing labelwise, but I would really like to have labels on my first batch before they are all gone. Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions are welcome.

* slight technical problem---I created a label in microsoft publisher and saved it as a jpeg or a gif file. However, whenever I try to open it as a picture in order to upload it, only the text from the label shows up and not the picture on the label or the colors! Any ideas? thnx.

I just found some killer fonts and Use the crappy paintshop that comes with computers. They turn out fine. *shrug*

Nice, simple labels. Very cool. I like the guitar in the background.
