I awoke today, realizing last week (not an easy one for me) was gone. Instead of relief, I am feeling the need to slow down. A simple shift in perspective makes me appreciate all that I have instead of worrying about people and events over which I have no control.
As I refine my two collections, Classic and Fresh, I am also keeping in mind my third, recommended by friends–the “mental health” collection (though I still need a name for that one). I find that cards and prints can inspire and motivate– or more importantly, show you “get” it.
So once I get these all up in the shop, it’s on to something new. Oh, I also worked on a cool business card with Caroline from Push the Envelope. Her sketch looks fabulous, don’t you think?
I don’t know which I liked more at the Lancaster Printers Fair– meeting/seeing old friends or getting new stuff! Wood type from from John Barrett at Letterpress Things and Virgin Wood, a handmade book from Leland Manufactory, cards from Sea Heart City Press and Typecase Industries, and a letterpress t-shirt! Mostly, though, I loved connecting with like-minded printers, who continue to amaze me with their willingness to share and help.
