Quite Quiet (Midwest)

I've been a quiet blogger as of late. I thought I'd better post a little "me" update...

Here is the laundry list of my life's current events...
- 4 business trips since September (Oy)
- weekly freelance projects (I'm so happy to be working)
- 2 week family battle with H1N1 (all 3 kids plus Joey, I was spared)
- approaching winter and cold (we are outside as much as possible for now)
- jury duty (I was excused after one day)
- camera love (I'm back to daily photo taking and so happy about it)
- Craftactular this Saturday!

Today I print and get signage ready for this weekend's craft fair. I will take the camera so that I have some things to blog about next week. :)

Loving Black! (West Coast)

Color is funny. I totally have my favorites, and tend to print things in a palate that stays pretty consistent. Today I opened my black ink, and everything looked great in it! I probably went overboard, but I had so much fun printing common designs in an uncommon color for me. I tend to stick with somewhat bright and cheery colors, but somehow today, everything looked good in black! I really like the high contrast, crisp lines I got. BTW, these items will be up in our esty shop today! Have a great weekend!

Hedgehog Goodies (West Coast)

These came out really cute. Last week I had an order to put together some wedding favors for a customer who really likes hedgehogs. She wanted to put together a greeting gift for her out of town guests so when they check into the hotel, they will know how much she appreciates their coming all that way. I paired the blank hedgehog notes and hedgehog coasters, then came up with a hangtag to match. We did sample size packs of each to keep costs down.
