On Saturday I bumped into a good friend (who is the finest letterpress printer I know) and I remarked while we were talking about our current projects, "you know, I'm just trying not to take myself too seriously right now." And bless her heart, I don't think she believed me. That being said, I am enjoying letterpress printing, making work that I feel combines beauty with utility and clean design. (But things that appear simple aren't always the case in the set-up!) So coming soon are some new card sets which have rose imagery, borders and lines, using all antique type. Also I will be participating in the next Poppytalk Handmade Market "Paper Pops", that opens on Monday. It's been a while since I've been able to be in the market so I'm looking forward to it again.

> Now is a great time to pick up Kerstin's beautiful book From Orchards, Fields, and Gardens as she's having a half-off sale to raise funds for Pinky Leon's emergency surgery.
> I hope to make Rachel's Borracho beans really soon, I'm craving them.
> I got a roll of film back today that is making my day so much brighter. Here's one of the images and the one above, taken in my studio.
> Plus a fun little announcement next week. :)

Now, back to printing for me.
