Printing by Hand
Hi, friend! Are you enjoying your children and their break from school this week? We are happy with ours. No one has gotten dressed (except my poor husband) from their pajamas until maybe after lunch, if at all. We did have one harrowing incident yesterday which involved me yelling at the baby "no, that's not apple juice!" and making a mad lunge (you can fill in the details with your imagination, and you would be right) but we seem to be settling into a less destructive routine.
I have become OBSESSED (the capital letters are required because if we were on the phone, I would yell that word) with Lena Corwin's excellent, beautiful, crazily-inspiring book Printing by Hand. I think I've had it now for about a month and I have consistently stared at it (cover, page, page, page) every day. When I finally have a minute to myself (the down side of children's holiday month) I have big plans. Here I made some trees (I think I need to invest in another ink color). The possibilities are endless. I think every inch of my life needs to be printed on.
