a little bit of everything

I was busy finishing up Suz's baby shower invites when my neighbor had me do some bridal shower invitations for her which I've just wrapped up. In between, I've been working on putting together some christmas cards and cards with the milk bands (for nursing). I had a few bites for the letterpress holiday card on etsy but haven't had a sale yet. I've also been perusing ebay and briarpress for a tabletop letterpress from heaven! After one workshop, I'm hooked and hope I can get a press of my own one day and do more letterpress!!

I took the handmade pledge

I took the handmade plege on!
I've just finished some wedding thank you cards for a former client, some baby shower invitations for one of my best friends and hopefully have a bridal shower job coming up.
I am hoping to keep busy and always thinking of new ideas. Looking for a good supplier to offer purse valets with paper detail. Also will be trying to launch some cards with milkbands. So lots going on and lots of fingers crossed!

Last weekend I attended a letterpress workshop with Railway Station Press in Alexandria, VA.

Stuart Bradley was great and the experience was awesome! I learned about the letterpress process and the C&P pilot tabletop and made some holiday cards!! They are on crane lettra paper with an ink we mixed to be a blue/grey and also did a blind emboss for the ampersand and "white."
