Checking Things Off the List (Midwest)

From Saturday's letterpress print session. Laurie, the sage ink came from mixing opaque white, process blue, red, yellow, and black. I'd say 4 toothpick dabs yellow to 1 each of the the others, and of course mostly white. This is the sage above, and below.

So, here I am for my Sunday morning weekly post! It seems that by Sunday our family has settled into the weekend and the kids are not at my feet, giving me some time on the computer. Today I hope to spend a couple hours working on some stray design projects. I have three type changes to make to the brochure below, then it can go to the printer. I have an Etsy banner to design for a friend (not ours Laurie - that's still a secret - shhhhh), various print marketing materials for a client, and some gocco cards to finish up. Ambitious for the amount of time I have available today. It will be good to cross these items from my list. How I long to have an 8 hour day to work. It's really hard to schedule these things in for an hour or two here or there. I shouldn't complain. I'm very fortunate to be able to stay at home with the kids and work (if I want).

Tomorrow I will print more items for my shop. Also, I've been a busy bee preparing some cards to debut in my booth over at Poppytalk Handmade Market to start on Feb 11th. This is very exciting for me. I may post a sneak peek next week, but I'm planning on keeping the final products under wraps until they go up for sale. :)

The latest cards look great! I really like the combination of the image in gocco, and the layered letterpress type on top. And as always, nice color combinations! The trucks are cute too.
