Switching Gears...literally

letterpress 002
Ink, Paper, and press in the back ground ready to get started

So, I also design and print letterpress.

My most generous father gave it to me when i was in my letterpress faze, but i still LOVE to do it, it is just more time consuming than sewing (as in the set up and clean up, you can't just leave anything.) SO I don't do it as much as i would like, but on the occasion i do. Read more about it here and here.

You would be right if you think that i sure do jump around to all sorts of design endeavors. .I am very ADD when it comes to design, I know just a little of everything to be very dangerous and expensive...Everybody now....POOR SCOTT!!!! old friend of mine is getting married in August and I have designed the invites for he and his soon to be new wife. I letterpressed the envelopes tonight so that they can get to the fun task of addressing all of those bad boys! I am so excited how the envelopes turned out and can't wait for the whole invite suite to come together, but here is a sneak peak.

Oh and the craziest thing happened...when i pulled the very last envelope there was this huge clap of thunder and someone was saying with hands on hips "uh, huh, that's right...your good"!
