hi everyone! - hope you had a relaxing and creative weekend.
our lliam was sick for most of the weekend and he's now on the mend, but lil p is now got the sniffles - what is up with this rotating cold/flu thing. I hope I don't get sick - too much work ahead of me. well I got a few letterpress jobs to show you - sort of. the wedding invite I will show more pics when everyone gets them. it involved pine cones - how sweet - and I got to use the beautiful st. armand paper - it was a real pleasure to print on it and was nice to have a break from the lettra paper. I also did some custom business cards in the style of our note cards. I'm having fun with putting washi tape on e v e r ything. there's also a picture of this cut off from the log piles I got and it's waiting to be turned into something. also friends in rochester and montreal - I will be taking a road trip with my wares to visit you soon.
next week celebrates eight years of bookhou I am thinking of having a giveaway each day - is that too insane?
enjoy your day!
