Carrie is busy working on a new woodcut print! The first color is done, and now she’s working on a 2nd.
This will be our first 2 color woodcut, and we are thinking about printing it on something besides….(shocking) WHITE!
Homegrown in the Heartland
Carrie and I thought we should have some respectable photos of ourselves…you know, without the ink smudges on our faces. So we went out to the lake on the Shryock’s farm and Carrie’s mom took some wonderful photos!
This is the best…from the dock. First, we went out in a canoe, thinking that would be appropriate. After a few minutes debate, I climbed in the back which was in the water, and Carrie was about to hop in the front after pushing off from the bank. Just then, a little brown FIELD MOUSE popped out, and I was in a canoe alone with a mouse! I’m proud to say that I didn’t over turn the canoe, but just laughed, and eventually it found it’s way out and swam to shore. Who knew that mice can swim? Yuck.
After we got underway across the lake to where Carrie’s mom was waiting on the dock, I realized that there was a fountain of water spewing from the bottom of the boat, into the boat. Again, laughing. We made it to the dock, and quickly back to shore before being sunk by the pinkie-size hole in the bottom. Did I mention our oars were broken as well? Good times in the country.
Last time we printed this beauty, we only made 38. And they sold out in 2 days time. It took all summer, but we’ve reprinted the poster, in another limited edition, and it’s back! And if want one, this is your chance, cause I seriously doubt we’re going to be printing all 9 of those colors ever again. GET YOURS RIGHT HERE!
And thanks to being featured on Daily Candy, we’ve sold all but 4 of our coaster sets, so we reprinted those at the same time!
We’re now back to printing new things: some really lovely wedding invites, holiday coasters, and holiday cards. Let’s hope I can post those soon!
Everyone likes a good mini-series, right? Remember our “Things That Are Round”? This is “Things That Are Long”, and we may do even more! We sold out of the last poster in 48 hours, although we still have some of the coasters. We’re still hoping to reprint this sometime soon.
Carrie did so many drawings of “Things That Are Long” That we felt like we had to use them all! (Some go used in the calendar, but we couldn’t fit all of them.)
So we made an 11×14 poster. And it’s beautiful! It’s up for sale in the shop now, and we only printed 120, so I recommend you snatch it up if you can. We only made 40 of our last poster, and it sold out in 48 hours.
