I got some special papers just for Valentines and here are some of the new envelopes made with them, now in the shop; pretty and a little old-fashioned and perfect for your special valentine! Take a peek, I hope you like them!
In other news, I've finally got some new linen towels that will soon go into the shop as well. Unlike the previous batch, I put these in the wash before setting the ink with the iron. This left them all with a perfectly faded vintage look (now that the ink has been set, they won't fade any further). The red now reminds me of a vintage coca-cola sign.
In this batch, I also tried out some of the kitchen tool linoblocks i had carved along with the usual potato stamp polka dots. I love the way the colanders turned out (see the turquoise towel above) and hope to post the first of these tomorrow as long as I can get through all the photography i need to do of new items!
