Holiday Cheer Coming Your Way!

Just got our first snow of the season in Northern Virginia. I thought I would spread some holiday cheer by sharing a picture of the little evergreen we planted this fall when we landscaped the front of the house.


Maybe someday he will grow into those bulbs. Happy Holidays!

Letterpress Christmas Card

So, I have always been in love with letterpress. In fact, it is sort of my dream to buy one and start selling cards, stationery, and invitations on Etsy. Maybe someday....*wistfully looks off into the corner of the room*

Last weekend, I took a letterpress workshop in Alexadria, VA. I figured if this was something I thought I really wanted to do, then I better actually get to it and take a workshop. And, as I had hoped, my love for letterpress was confirmed and solidified!

At the workshop, hosted by Stewart Bradely from Railway Station Press, we learned to set type, lock the chase, set the tympan paper and gauge pins, and ink the press (a beautiful tabletop Chandler and Price Pilot!). We made 40 copies of our own design—mine being Christmas cards.

From my home to your's...Merry Christmas!

New York City Trip

In October I went to New York City with some of my husband's family for the weekend. We made it to China Town, Little Italy, and Grand Central. Unfortunately, I only had my camera on me for Grand Central. Here are some of the pictures I took...

I just love the architecture and constellations on the ceiling!

I am so taking a guided tour of Grand Central the next time we go. It is amazingly beautiful, and I would love to know more about it!
