Next week, we go to print with the first round of invitation packages.
I'll be taking photos and getting some stuff together of them being pressed over at Rex Mills in Minneapolis.

Look for something in the coming weeks with Abby from Every Day with Hazel Mae. 
If you haven't check out her blog, you should!

Here's a few videos to get you through to the weekend.

It's an adorable fluffy kitten.

Who doesn't love to seeing Senior Choirs singing a little Nelly - Hot in Here?  By Senior, I mean 60+.

Dog confused by other "talking" dog.

Wimp as all sorts of videos to preoccupy yourself with if those don't do it!

New projects and all sort of stuff coming up next week.  So excited!  I can't wait to share!

Freshly Pressed

For the past 4 weeks, I been taking a Letterpress class an Minnesota Center for Book Arts.  This whole class was focused on learning to make and print with Polymer plates.
It's been a quick 4 weeks.  I've learned SO much.
I can't even begin to explain how my love affair with Letterpress has grown.
I have so many ideas of what to do next.  I don't know what to do first. 

Here's what I've been printing.

Week 1 & 2 - Print Diamonds
The first part of this print I forgot to take pictures.  It's a simple diamond shape printed in a teal.

I created a scratch negative for the second color of the print.  Experimenting with lines and movement.

Here is the Finished Product.

These were cut in half, scored and folded. 

Week 3 

CB showing me how to set up my plate and paper for the first color. 

First color down. 

Week 4 - Second color and The Final Product 

Final size of paper 4" x 5".
Printed on Crane Lettra Pearl. 

The video below is of my class print partner, Kristilyn, doing the first color of her Chevron print.  The second part was a blind emboss.

I can't wait to go out and print more!

Challenge Accepted

Starting June 1st, I will be creating or being creative every day. 
"Don't you do that anyway?", you say.
Well, yes and no.
Sometimes, even I, don't want to be "creative" every day.  I want to take the easy route and make stuff I know I can make.
But here I am challenging myself to be creative.  Some days will be easier than others but none the less 30 days of being creative.
I'll be posting my daily #30DoC via Facebook, Twitter, and most likely my Instagram.

Follow along and join in.
You can check out all the other 30DoC's by following @createstuff on Twitter, Pinterest and their site
