As people are starting to get their holiday playlists together and are getting into the spirit of this time of year, I begrudgingly avoid all things that sound like Christmas music and almost go out of my way to not get into the holiday windows along Michigan Ave. You've caught me: I'm one major scrooge.
Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of the holidays. Let's just say my attention span for all things holiday related is considerably shorter than others. For this reason... I'm holding off for as long as I can.For the holidays this year, I've decided that I want to send really special cards to the people that make my life colorful, beautiful, exciting, and worthwhile.
I heard about this mini letterpress on Poppytalk today, and thought it holds the potential to create some really beautiful work.
And was inspired by these watercolor textures to break out the paints and create something a little more personal over the long Thanksgiving weekend.
