Letterpress class is so much fun and I've very glad I took it. I probably won't every do it again but I've learned things and used my class time to make a lot of gifts.
Last week I made cards for my niece. This week the cards are for my nephew. You would laugh if you knew how long I fiddled and searched for the perfect image to add to the text. I tried several things but the right answer was a simple line! I like this font a lot too. I really should have kept nots of the different types I used...but I didn't.
I do know that this one is Caslon Italic. Chris goes on a hunting trip to Nebraska every November and has been doing it for over 20 years with most of the same guys. This year I'll be sending along packs of these cards to the guys as a little pre-hunting advice.
Next week is the last class and I have 2 more sets of note cards that I want to make and then I'm printing a Christmas block on some fabric for my Christmas postcards.
After class I stopped by the pottery classroom and picked up all of their broken/rejected pottery. I got 5 grocery bags and last night I smashed and sorted all of it. I've worked out with them to stop by on a regular basis to clean out their reject bin. They were saving it for an outreach program that has passed but everyone got in the habit of saving the rejects. Now they are all mine!
Today Chris is cleaning the carpets so I need to get busy clearing floors.
