I’ve had people ask how I picked Untidy Hedgehog as my business name? It’s a silly joke about myself that up until now only a few people knew about. When I was a child one of my favorite books was The Untidy Little Hedgehog by Molly Brett. The story was about a dirty little unkempt hedgehog and his adventures. He has trouble finding a roommate because he is so untidy. Both his personal hygiene and the way he keeps his home are very messy. He gets passed from woodland friend to woodland friend as they realize how messy he is. He even ends up in a trash truck he calls the Dust Van Dragon at one point in his adventures. In the end he realizes if he stays neat and tidy life is easier. I’m not sure that would be the message for a children’s book printed today but in the 1960’s it was.
The joke part is that in a perfect world I’m extremely tidy. A place for everything and everything in its place. Stack-able storage boxes and labels make me happy. I even label the shelves in the kitchen so other family members know where I think the groceries belong, yes my family makes fun of me and my labels. Neat, tidy and organized that’s me. I smile every time I think about being called untidy when I’m the opposite. I will admit that when the artist in me gets going things can get messy quickly. That’s when the untidy part of me shows, I am human after all. So now you know how Untidy Hedgehog got it’s name.
I love this Brother P-Touch label maker. It’s easy to use and has a few more options then the basic model.
