new years terrarium

Today I feel like I’m stepping back into the world.  I got sick right before Christmas and spent almost the whole week trying to shake it off.  But it was actually wonderful because I got to spend the week at my parents house, catching up on sleep, TV shows and small projects (above are some fruits of labor).  I’m home now and back on my feet, ready to break in the new year.  :)

A friend of mine was recently telling me that she never makes resolutions because they seem like a waste of time.  But I’m totally the opposite – I live for resolutions.  They fill me with motivation and energy.  I’m working on my 2011 list now, and I seem to have a lot of focus on creativity this year.  I want try some new things (maybe oil painting?), work on my photography, create some new partnerships and (of course) get better at my own craft of letterpress.  I’m going to share more of my general creative process on the blog going forward, I hope you’ll check in and give me your feedback when the spirit moves you.

Thanks so much for reading this past year, I’m really excited to welcome 2011 and see what lies ahead.  Happy New Year!

I’m hunkered down in snowy Pennsylvania, very relieved not to be traveling tonight.  Good luck to everyone stuck in transit, hope you make it home soon!

christmas cheer


If I had to pick one Pantone color to put me in the Christmas mood it would be 200U.  What’s your choice?

I hope you are all having a nice holiday season so far!  This has been a busy and exciting month at work.  Tomorrow will be my last day of printing before Christmas, so I’m excited to listen to some Bing Crosby and finish two last custom holiday jobs.  I have a few new items debuting in my shop immediately after the New Year, so I’ll be working on those at the end of December…

As for online orders my last shipping day will be Monday, December 20th, that includes all order placed by Monday at noon.  All items ship via Priority Mail and I can provide a tracking number if you’d like one.  And as a special for any last-minute shoppers, **all orders between now and the Monday deadline will receive a free pack of letterpress gift tags.**

If you order after the Monday cut-off I will still ship immediately upon ordering, but I can’t promise a delivery in time for Christmas.  Hope you have a great weekend of seasonal fun!

This weekend was a blast at the Martha Stewart Craft Sale!  Thanks to all the faithful legions who waited in line outside on a sunny but cold day.  This year I limited almost all of my purchases to gifts for loved ones, so I can’t picture them here.  But these two prints from the amazing Lisa Golightly of Kiki & Polly are ALL MINE.  :)

Here are some other favorites from the sale:

Marcie McGoldrick
Foxy & Winston
Rifle Paper
Coral & Tusk
Erin Jang
Lotta Jansdotter
