welcome to my weekend

Not only do I have one of my favorite craft fairs this weekend, I also have this pile to contend with:
100 pieces of bookboard, 6.5x 9.5, for 50 folding bar menus
4 pieces of bookboard, 8.5 x 5.75, for two custom albums
Eight boxes of A2 envelopes (1600 total), return address printed
Two reams (that's 200 sheets) of 23x35--to be made into 1500 holiday cards
And it'll definitely take me longer than the weekend to finish all of that--so I'll be back next Friday for a recap!

on the bench: working from home

It's such a rare luxury--to work from my own kitchen table. Of course, I can't print at home, but today's been a working-on-sketches and ordering-supplies kind of day. And it's not over yet! So back to micron pens + tracing paper + hot tea + audio book I go!

on the press: the bluest blue

Reflex blue: it's such a nice color on the Vandercook's steel rollers, it's almost a shame to use it up.
But then I wouldn't have these beauties, would I?
