As well as working on client work, we've been making little changes here and there to the studio. Oh, I've got big plans for it. Our latest addition is a set of 6 massive shelving units. The photo doesn't really show how big they are - only 4 of the units would fit next to the sink in the studio. That's the platemaker next to them. And yes, a gumball machine. Why? Every studio needs a gumball machine!
I'm quite excited about the brand new Shop Handmade retail store that's opening this week. For those of you that don't know, the shop is the brainchild of the ever so lovely ladies that run the ever so popular Canberra Handmade Markets. There you'll be able to find so many handmade products from the talented designers that have stalls at the Markets.

On the press today are a few print proofs for Katharine & Murray, and Renee & Adam. Some lovely combinations of charcoal and old gold, and azalea pink and ruby red. Below are Katharine & Murray's old gold plates being printed on Collie.

Normally we print just a couple of A4 sheets worth of plates at a time, but we've got a small mountain of 28 to do so far this month! And more coming! So while it's quite here for a couple more weeks, hang tight, there will be a lot to showcase very soon. Here's a sneak peek of just one of the designs.

Just found this video on the Pistachio Press blog. Rachael originally found it on Sycamore Street Press blog. Snaps both Eva and Rachael for sharing their find.

I'm a big fan of all things handmade, so I was quite excited to see the other day that the Poppytalk blog has introduced a cute little bag of online awards called The Poppies.
There are a variety of categories and nominations close midnight tonight. If you so happen to find yourself wanting to nominate someone, might I suggest Poppy Letterpress in the Paper Goods category?
So I took some photos and got to work.
Then created the illustration.
The final design is actually one of my very favourites. It's feminine without being too frilly, and would be perfect for a mild spring or summer wedding. These ferns look so fresh, and I think that lends well to the design.
I'm not sure why, but the fern has taken off. It's now far too big to sit next to my bathroom sink, and I actually have to move it if I want to wash my hands. I think it just likes being the centre of attention.

Our brand new website is finally online. There's still a lot more work to do on it though, but once it's all up and running, it will have a few swanky new features.

The pressure's really on now to have the website ready to go live tomorrow. It may be at 11.59pm tomorrow, but it will be tomorrow! I must say that I'm stupidly excited to have a new site. We've really needed it for quite some time now, and it's far more dynamic than the last one. You'll probably all look at it and ask, "What was all the fuss about?" :)

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and had a fun night last night. Have you made your new year's resolution? I'm not one for them myself, but I'm really looking forward to throwing myself into the studio and producing some gorgeous new work. Bring on 2010!
