Today I took Sadie to visit her mom at work and then out for a Shake Shack date. Yesterday @everydaypants brought her nanny babe over and we had a carrot cake party for Willa's first birthday! A+ holiday week!
8 years ago today I was a stressed out baby Mello helping run the very first @hamiltonwoodtype Wayzgoose. It was overwhelming, but perfect. I'm endlessly grateful for the chain of events that brought me to Two Rivers at the exact right time and introduced me to my weird, cobbled together #printfam. -
Yesterday I helped my dad load the contents of my studio into his truck to put into storage until I buy a house. It's funny how full circle that feels with today's anniversary. My letterpress life isn't over, but it's been on hiatus for a long time, so it's time to acknowledge that. I've had offers from friends to visit their studios and get my hands inky. Type House lives and Two Rivers/Hamilton will always be a second home to me. Life is good. -
Here's to keeping on nodding terms with the people I used to be - thanks for everything baby Mello.
If I sold any of my old cross stitch and blackwork pieces would anyone be interested?
Hung hard with some sweet beasts today and then packed my studio and prepped my other beasts for storage. -
It's bittersweet to put my presses in storage after an inspiring wayzgoose, but I'm setting my sights on buying a house in the next year-ish. 🤞🏻🏚️
If this series of candid #wayzgoose2017 photos has taught me anything it's that I never put my phone down and I look way better in selfies than IRL. -
Regardless, I am so grateful for this community that I found in this tiny town in Wisconsin, for this family that chose each other, for this place that makes 14 hour work days on 5 hours of sleep feel so effortless and worthwhile. -
Until next year, @hamiltonwoodtype, when we do it up real big for number 🔟. -
@everydaypants gave the Bad Kids Club a photography lesson this morning.
You've still got time to vote Krasner for DA, Philly!!
