hope you had a lovely weekend - we enjoyed a few days of sunshine and light coat weather. john wants to thank you for your warm birthday wishes. happy family day - we are off to visit the model railroad club of toronto...so I'm not the first in the family to admit that this wasn't my first choice, but I was out voted - I guess three years of intense thomas everything has made me a bit weary of small model trains. at least I can appreciate the construction and attention to detail these model trains entail. on the weekend we also managed to squeeze in some letterpress printing. I like how the printing quality almost has a photographic quality.
on friday we got our shipment of flat boxes for our alphabets - it took a big wholesale order from a not so small american retailer to make us research the proper custom shipping boxes. all weekend I've been repeating to john "how can a pile of boxes make me so happy?" - this will speed up packaging like you wouldn't believe. we just need to wait for our UPC code stickers and away they go. I will let you know the retailer as soon as they get them and do their launch. the other image are my two favourite carving knives - the opinel knife was given to me by my dad when I was around twelve years old - he frequented lee valley and I would tag along - is it strange that kids my age were interested in clothes and make-up and I was interested in getting a carving knife. the black knife was given to me by john.
enjoy your day everyone! - hope it's a creative one. xxa
