It has been OVER 2 months since I last posted. I have been a busy, busy bee! Here's a brief update:
Working retail consumed my life over the holidays. Daniel and I still haven't gotten to go visit my family yet and Christmas was over a month ago. Christmas was good even though I missed my family immensely. Daniel and I both had to work the day before and the day after Christmas though. It was not fun. We had a low-key New Years with a group of friends (some old, some new) and had a blast. January has gone by pretty quickly and is just slowing down.
My freelance work has picked up A LOT...which I am super-thankful for. I've been working on some projects for Armosa Studios (stationery, letterhead, packages, etc.), a few logos for different clients, business cards, tshirts, postcards, prints, websites...like I said, busy.
I will post a more extensive update (well, mostly just pictures of what I've been working on) in the near future...and I will also commit to posting more frequently again!
I should have things posted in my Etsy shop soon, so be on the lookout for that as well...AND I will be launching my new website sometime this week!! I designed it and my good friend and fellow (amazing) graphic designer Rowan Finnegan has been teaching me how to code it.
OH!! and I forgot my most exciting news! My friends Wes and Tera (of Armosa Studios) opened their studio/gallery space on Court Street a little while back...they have a huge basement that they are not currently using and offered it to me as a workspace...so I have a studio now!! I'm sharing it with my good friend Amy who is now working for them...she is also a crazy-good photographer (Three Photography) and I'm super-excited to be sharing the space with her. We painted last weekend and got the floor covered...it was really ugly linoleum. I'll be moving my stuff over there this week and should be back to printing things soon! Can't wait! And Daniel and I are both excited about my art/craft supplies NOT being all over the house. I really thought I'd love working out of my home, but I need somewhere else to print.
One last thing...I have made it my goal now to open a print shop. I will do it. I've been researching letterpress and have fallen in love with it. I will buy a letterpress and I will have my own shop. I don't know when, but I will. You can hold me to that. I am determined.
