The Letter "H"

Today’s Letterpress Workshop theme was the letter “H”.  It was amazing what Lorie thought of to set that “H” apart from anything I have seen participants do before. Stunning Brown ink on Kraft envelopes along with Vintage type + cuts. I know everyone that receives her personalized stationery will enjoy the look and feel of Letterpress and that “third” dimension on some beautiful cotton paper.

She was very drawn to the CabinPress Studio’s Hamilton wood type, I always love when folks appreciate the history of it. Mixing vintage wood type + 2 font families for one “H”appy coaster!

The puzzles pieces are waiting to be placed by Lorie

Little Minnie working hard again with vintage wood + lead handset type. A great end product from a very special evening of Letterpress Printing. I know Lorie will be thinking of her next project. It was so fun to get to know her and her artistic background!

Happy Printers Unite!

Talk about a fun group of women taking a Letterpress Workshop together — this is that fun group! I really felt the Letterpress Love come alive today with such creative minds all in one place. Taking some time out of their busy schedules from red letter creative and Bailiwick Press these women produced some fun blind impression personal stationery and red coasters which they decided to divide into 3 piles and share with each other…. I LOVED IT. You are all always welcome to come back to CabinPress Studio and create….create….create.

These hands know what they are doing with that Key.

Let’s print RED… RED… RED… it is fabulous. Check out that Bunny.

Wonderful Wednesday Workshops

I am always amazed by the wonderful + thoughtful things that my Workshop participants print with little “Minnie”. Meet Cara + Karl, two very special participants that I was lucky to share the evening with. I could just tell by being around them they had so many ideas and settled on some beauties, to say the least. It was hard to tell they had never printed a piece in there lives, truly they are both naturals! Can you tell by looking at those stunning coasters that someone in this pair may drink a beer or two? But, then again, we are in Fort Collins, home to a few breweries, to say the least. They even told me last week they made a Pinhole Camera, amazing!
Thanks again you two + I hope you will visit again.

Love From Me…

Therapy Dogs
2011 is the first year for The Love From Me Project and Mom is participating with a special piece of art. You can read more about it here. It was inspired by the 2009 (guess which one Mom did!, hint, hint, Golden Retriever) and 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book Project. Paws For Charity raised $5,500 for breast cancer charity.
