i love the Christmas holiday season… but I don’t like to jump on that band-wagon till the day after Thanksgiving. It is difficult to keep the holidays at bay when you are working on projects that are specifically for holiday season.
This last month, I decided to put together a few Christmas/Holiday cards. These are the few I got done: “Wishing You A Holly Jolly Christmas” and “HO HO HO” (which are both blank in the inside), and “I Was Going To Get You A Fruit Cake… (inside) But I Thought This Card Would Taste Better.” Each of the cards started as drawings in my sketchbook and then I made them into hand-carved linocuts that were stamped on kraft cards.
here it is the cowboy boot print! I don’t know if I will get this in my shop till after this weekend. I have been busy with final preparations for the Unglued Craft Fest. My husband made a deadline of Wednesday night and then I can no longer print any more pieces. He knows if there is no deadline I will keep creating new prints till the last-minute.
The concept been done before but I wanted to create my spin on “dropping the f-bomb.” With a 1 1/2 year old running around, my husband (…and I… sometimes) need to watch what we say. We don’t want our baby, Reagan, “dropping f-bombs.” Figured this print would be great wall decor for any man cave, garage, shop, or perhaps, your place of employment.
Ah… my little boston terrier, Sammy, hard at work already. While she does, what she does best, I have packaged up journals and prints. Trying to do a little everyday. Ordered more linoleum and I am awaiting its arrival. I have a couple larger prints I would like to make for the upcoming Unglued Craft Fest… Things are slowly coming together.
The process for these pieces of wall décor took a little longer than I had anticipated, but I finally finished them and they are up on my etsy site! In the graphic design world, FPO stands for FOR PLACEMENT ONLY. It is a low-resolution photo or blank placeholder that is stamped with the letters FPO and is used in design layouts to show where the final photo will be placed before printing. Making this wood sign a playful “FPO” piece of wall art. I even added one to my family photo wall.
