GONE FISHING...

Tomorrow marks the beginning of a two week leave of absence from Toronto life. In other words? VACATION TIME. I'm already scheming about all the things I want to work on when I get back, but until then I am going to be embracing the joys of camping, relaxing on the East Coast, and neglecting computers. Yes!

A few random moments from late July: 1. Printing t-shirts in the dungeon for one of my softball teams. The Rebels have been taking a bit of a beating this year, but spirits remain HIGH. 2. Re-printed a whack of cards which are now available at Nouvelle Nouvelle in Vancouver and Press: Works On Paper in San Francisco! 3. Treats from Whitney (an all-star third basewoman). 4. Important ingredients for my favourite mixed drink of the summer. 5. An amazing new triangle/pyramid necklace handmade by Danielle. Been wearing this guy all the time. & 6. 3D glasses for some very old school (aka ghetto) 3D visuals at The Toronto Underground Cinema.

Lastly, if you're in Toronto on Saturday August the 13th check out The Bloorcourt Arts And Crafts Streetfair Marketplace that Jen put together. Vendor list: here!

Hello! I am a huge fan of your work and blog. I would love to find out more about how you set up your home screenprinting area, as I'm very keen on doing the same thing in my little apartment and am without fancy washout facilities, high pressure hoses, or exposure tables. You seem to achieve such great results! I'd love to find out more! Thanks x

T: CAMP LIFE.

Kitiya: Thanks! I'll send you an email. Homestyle screen printing without fancy studio gear is totally possible!

Shayna: Not sure - I've never actually had pimm's and lemonade! But I'm obviously way into performing a taste test with you to find out...
