I started this month going to The Museum of Printing History here in Houston to letterpress Valentine's Cards with the guild. This is what one of the letterpress machines looks like inked up and with a polymer plate in it.
Here is a sample of how some of the cards came out. Kind of amazing, don't you think?
As my Valentine's gift to you, I want to share a great project for moms who want to know how to save or corral their kids' artwork. I saw this project in Somerset Life a year or so ago. Just take a legal sized file folder with prongs in it to secure the work, decorate it and hole punch their projects.
Now you are organized and this stuff is no longer in the "I don't know what to do with this stuff" pile.
I made my folder for Lucy's Kindergarten year, and put a picture of her on it from her first day of school.
Speaking of the Lucer . . . look who was an instant winner !
From my home to yours, I wish you the very best of Valentine's Days. May you be kind to your sweeties and get kindness returned.
