loving this...

I love these new stamps that came out, just in time for the postal increase. The stamps were designed by Jeanne Greco, based on 18th century playing cards. From her website she says, “In a way, it’s sad that the King and Queen will usually be used separately, but I hope they’ll find each other in the same mailbox from time to time. Perhaps they’re destined to reconnect only by chance in a royal flush or on an envelope that weighs more than an ounce.”

These stamps would be perfect for any upcoming wedding invitations.

come for a visit

If you feel like a lovely drive to the country this Saturday, May 9th, then head up to Grayslake, IL. We will have a table set up along with the other storefronts in our little shopping district. The community holds an annual organic plant and sidewalk sale. There will be music, food, plants and of course, us. We will have a small selection of cards available but will also be passing out info about our new space as well as registering people for our June classes. We will be there from 9am to 1pm. Hope to see you there.

bad blogger, bad

I can't believe how long it has been since I wrote anything here. I have been so incredibly busy and have neglected my little blog. Well here is what I have been up to in a nutshell...
  • moved into new space
  • found a new partner to share the space with (more on that later)
  • have been working hard to ready the new space (there will be a classroom and retail section too)
  • getting ready for NSS... this has been the biggest task (finishing the line, printing new designs, designing postcards, business cards, press kits, and a new website, working on the booth display, figuring out how to ship a large crate from Chicago to NY, and the list goes on)
  • guest blogging on other sites such as the Stationery Guides & Poppytalk Handmade Artists
  • organizing & participating in a letterpress swap
  • organizing a HUGE indie wedding event in Chicago called Indie Wed
  • don't forget I am a mom (and full time caregiver) for a very mobile 18 month old
I am exhausted just thinking about it. ;) I will try to be better though. Until next time (hopefully sooner than later)

moving day is approaching

Rusty Skeleton Keys for sale by 2BCreative's etsy shop

We just made plans to pick up keys to the new space on Monday. We will also be moving our press next Saturday. I will try to take plenty of pictures of the process which should be interesting. I just hope that the Chicago weather machine will hold off on the snow.

Now I am off to make calls as we need to rent a commercial grade vehicle and trailer for moving. Ugh.
