So...there has been some more progress with the journals. Here are some covers with typography added. I love journals and I love typography and the combination of these things is almost too much! I bought an industrial sewing machine, it arrived today, and this will be put to good use to decorate and bind these little pages. I will be taking these to Rose Street Artists Market from the 2nd of May as a way of launching my new line of stationery - journals.

I finished these business cards and wanted to give Kali a preview. Kali is a wedding and portraits photographer and wanted to make a statement to potential clients with something classy and sophisticated. I think this will do the trick and I hope Kali loves them.

I make my cards because I love what I do and most of the time I wonder where they go and what people might use them for.
When I sell my cards at the market there are many opportunities to ask my lovely customers what their occasion might be. On this day a lady walked by my market shop and this particular card caught her eye, she just had to have it, she went on to tell me a story about how her daughter never says, "I love you", but she makes this very shape with her own hands and puts her hands on her mother's chest, so she bought the card to give to her daughter for a special occasion, she didn't have one yet and suggested she would wait for the right time. This was such a lovely story.
These envelopes are becoming very popular and I am really enjoying making them. I have a heap of magazines as resources and the other day I found some extra special paper to recycle, so special I have decided to make a range of cards to go with the envelopes! More on this later...
So, it's been a while and I have been busy with weddings and my own projects (this is the most fun) I am really enjoying finding new ways to make letterpress, I have always loved journals and I have been thinking about making these for a while now, here is a little preview of what they look like.
I have decided to stitch the spines like this and I am really loving this look. They aren't quite there yet and I am just fiddling with the final touches but I am totally happy with the direction and can't wait to hear what people think.
