October 21st, and it was 78 degrees. 🌅 So snuck in one more beach walking adventure with @wskorupski.

Friday night dinner date with @chingzfood. 🍲🍤🍚 Currently my favorite place in town for soup dumplings. We also tried the spicy-salty shrimp and pork with mustard greens & bean curd.

It’s been a VERY long week.😑 It culminated into not getting paid for for some of my extra hours. 🔥🙎🏻☄️💔This pile of wheelbarrows is pretty much my life force right now.

(Edited: To grow & not appropriate the term “spirit animal”. “Life force” is sadly more accurate.)

I brought this with me to Open Press, but never got around to proofing it. I picked up this "❓" and a few other orphaned woodtype punctuations at the @vintagebazaarnewengland a few weekends ago.

✨🌿💙✨I don't exactly have a set idea in mind, so this is a little bit of a change of pace for me. 🤔💬 A few weeks ago I printed the aqua using the backs of the woodtype with the lines. (I've heard it called "sign type...? Swipe for a photo.) Today, I printed my tentacle-like plant linocut over it. Next up....

A little retail therapy after work. I had to buy this cup by @danica_studio for obvious reasons.

A discussion at work today about well-made lobster rolls. The last ones I had were with @wskorupski from @biteintomaine. 😬We both got "picnic style": cole slaw, celery salt, & butter. Plus shared one with wasabi.

Running errands today, including a stop at the @framersworkshop.✨🖼✨ My friend asked, "Would you let me buy a print from you? ......and would you frame it? Cause I'm lazy." 😂🀄️I printed an edition of the Japanese Proverb linocut by itself. Copper ink on paper that was called "gray flannel", so it's got a little texture.

💌📭 I have to mail some prints today, so here's an appropriate Flashback Friday. ✨I've always loved checking the mail.✨

Since I'm on a lino-roll, ✨FINALLY✨ finished carving my heart block, which I started a year agoish. 😜♥️ (Swipe to see the first proof I did in a brown ink.) 🌈I made a rainbow roll for a print gift, & it seemed a waste to clean it after only making 4 prints. Sooooo, I printed some hearts in the roll. 😉 I'm not sure if I'm going to leave as is, or overprint some text.💡🤔 Suggestions?

As I'm sitting here eating yogurt & listening to Wind Ensemble, I'm thinking about the delicious dinner @wskorupski & I had at @thehoneypaw. 🍯🐻🔥
Crab & uni chawanmushi, lobster dumplings, spicy salted squid, Hokkaido ramen, fried chicken with coconut butter cornbread, and, of course, the caramelized honey soft serve. ✨🐝🍦✨

Also the first time @wskorupski and I have been to Timber Point Trail, part of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. We discovered too late, as we were trying to beat the sunset, that you can walk over to Timber Island at low tide! ✨Next time!✨

Friday, I fell asleep with my shoes on. 😑 Saturday, I had a great time at @labrasaboston for my first #Esommarket with @aligreyshop, @allierosenthal666, @glasspaperbykolika, @hiroshiminatojewelry, @laurajean_floral, @michellethrowsthings, @mmvk, @ninedayweekend, @ogopogoland, Ploughed Hill Honey, @SaraHiggArt, @joshuakadeporterfield, & Stina Simmarano Art. ✨THANK YOU, to everyone that came out & bought prints!✨ Including @sapsquatch_ who volunteered her time to help me at my table. 💜💛💜 Sunday, I finally caught up on some sleep. 😴💤💤💤 •

I'm working a double today, so last night I packed up all my prints for tomorrow's @labrasaboston #esommarket, except one. In 2015, I was super fortunate to take a week long class with @starshapedpress at @wells_book_arts. It's where I met @pinwheel_press @svcletterpress @kotangent @amaranthpressandbindery @heirloom.press & @ohwouldhe. I made the Boston skyline in this class! At the time, I was really happy with it, but when I got home, not so much. 😕😰 I was hit with really bad case of imposter syndrome & printer's block. Sooo, I wrapped the prints up, & put them in a box.
✨⏰✨ Sooooooo two years later, I'm feeling a little less like an imposter. 😊These prints are finally editioned, & I'll pack them up after I get home from work tonight.🔺🏙💛

Throwback Thursday: Because I will probably never be as excited about two straws as I am here. (Plus hints of Momma-san's excellent fashion.)
✨💃🏼😋✨

My wrist looks odd. 👈🏻🤔 I ran this proof last week, & was curious to see how it dried. (99.5% transparent ink with a hint of silver & black ink.) Printed on the craft paper, it almost looks like it's just "wet". This is new to me, & I think it might have potential for other projects in the future.
✨🀄️✨Have any of you experimented with this effect?
