I made these little stamped note pads earlier this summer and have been giving them out with purchases. I just ran out of them, so now I need to make some more. I love how they look, but it's hard to get a good cover of color with the two methods I've been using. However, I picked up a copy of Christine's book (the lovely designer behind Yellow Owl Workshop - cute cards, great necklaces!) Print Workshop, and after browsing through it, I can already tell that there are going to be some tips that I put to use right away!
I also spent part of tonight finally putting together a banner made from the scraps of wood left over when I make arrows. This is still just a prototype, I can see a few changes that need to be made (like not breaking my needle threader and proceeding to spend 20 minutes trying to get 6 strands of thread through way too small of a needle hole. Or like sticking to one color of thread instead of spending almost an hour peeling apart three different skeins of embroidery thread. Or like drilling the holes bigger in the first place to avoid both of the above problems. But I tend to do things the long way around, at least the first time. Some might say I prefer the scenic route.) I think the banner is going in the right direction though, what do you think?
