FAMILY DAY FOR LIFE.

Some photos from the past few days: brand new hello cards with bright fluorescent envelopes, glove prints in new colours, packages ready for mailing, dry dirty paint hands, and my friend Lee's delicious homemade lime birthday cake.

Trying to maintain some sort of balance between jobs, hobbies, and everything else has felt tricky lately. But in lieu of ample down time, February has totally FLOWN by, so that's something. Dear spring: come on already, let's do this!

I spent a great deal of time this long weekend (much to the chagrin of my upper extremities) printing up stuff for DW's first ever road trip! I will be taking part in the March edition of Puces Pop next month, pimping out mini prints and awkward conversation for all! Check out the vendor list. I'm really looking forward to a weekend road trip adventure with my good pal Rob. If anyone has any recommendations for good places for us to eat and drink while in Montreal, I'd love to know your faves!

Mandy: Beer Carousel? Yes please! I haven't been to the Jean Talon Market before. I've actually only been to Montreal twice, and both times were way too speedy, or I was too broke at the time to actually do much, hence my lack of knowledge. Thanks for the recommends!

hello - I've just printed a hello card too - spooky! I'm really enjoying your hand print and the packaging too.

But what I really wanted to say was; once again you're showing the glamour of the screenprinting world! oh yeah.

Becky: GREAT NEWS. YES PLEASE!

Charlotte: Thanks, looks like we're on the same wavelength! And yes, gotta love the glamour - nothing screams TAKE UP SCREEN PRINTING more than paint hands and sore limbs, ha.
