The Older I Get

…the less I sleep

…the more I worry

…and the more aches appear

But I haven’t stopped loving to learn.

The thing about letterpress printing is each time I ink up the press, I have something I need to figure out. Maybe it’s the paper. Is the ink too cold? What about the packing? Is that metal letter chipped? Why is it printing more on one side than the other?

At first, I feel frustration rising. And then I remind myself: you got this. I take some time and figure out what the problem is, and then…. Ta da! I love the feeling of success, too! I wish I’d discovered this early in my life. But I’m going to enjoy the time I have left with it.

Before the arthritis kicks in too much. #gettingoldhurts

Edith’s Words

I do love a good quote, especially when I am looking for some non-cheesy Valentine’s Day cards to print or send. This one does it for me.

I mixed a bright pink with a little black to come up with this shade of purple– I like it!

Now that I’m back at LibertyTown Arts sharing Lynette’s studio, I have a place to display some of my prints. So, if you are local, please do stop by and say hello!
