I am finally back in Philly after a crazy few weeks full of (nearly) sleepless nights and non-stop printing. I feel so lucky to have participated in the Stationery Show with such a wonderful group of women in the Ladies of Letterpress booth. It was exactly the kick in the buns that I needed to really get going on my card line, and I couldn’t have had a better experience.
All of the cards will be available in my etsy shop soon and in a few new stores that I can’t wait to tell you about!
2011 is blindingly bright from over a week away. I hope you feel it as much as I do.
See you next year, I have lots to share.
Love + gratitude,
If you follow me on Twitter or “like” my Facebook page, you have probably heard (a lot) about the Mohawk Feedback Loop: Notebook Project. Sponsored by Felt & Wire along with its parent company Mohawk Paper, the project involved 25 letterpress printers along with their line of Loop paper. We were each asked to design and create 50 notebooks that would be sold in their shop to benefit Design Ignites Change which (in their own words) “gives youth in underserved communities a real-world experience using design thinking to communicate their ideas, exhibit their potential and take action in their own lives.” Below are a few samples of the work.
And here are a few shots of mine:
Check out the shop and buy them before they’re gone!

Here’s to finally getting around to my own printing… I’ve had a stack of drawings sitting around for months and finally made the time to turn them into a little more than pencil on sketch paper:
Letterpress is magic. I couldn’t have a better job.
Available on etsy!
More to come, stay with me.
