I am so tired that I took a 2 hour nap today. I worked my butt off (and so did my parents, and Jason, and my sister, and my friend Carrie) at the house yesterday, and I have a hangover from it today! So took a "break" and spent a few hours in the printing lab.
Along with about 300 recipe cards I have to feed that beast! The success has been a blessing and a curse--great because it's helping us afford things like furniture and carpet, bad because of timing. Don't get me wrong--I'm THRILLED that I've sold over 40 boxes. Awesome!
And I couldn't resist printing some of my new plates fresh back from the plate-maker:
I plan to make a series out of these--incorporating my newly found drawing chops and my beloved calligraphy pen and writing.
Wouldn't it be cool to have all 50 states? I'm not sure if I am ready to commit to doing all 50, but it's a possibility. After we're done moving. And after Carrie and I work on our 2010 calendar!
Soon to be posted in my Etsy shop! Let me know if you have a specific state request, and any ideas on what the wording could be. If I use your idea as inspiration, I'll send you one for free!
