Snowed In (and loving it) !
The 30 plus inch snow storm the weather station had been broadcasting for days has arrived! I couldn't be more thrilled. This weekend I am at my house with my future hubby and we are eating great food and making great art.
Since future hubby is a printmaker it was only a matter of time before I had to give the medium a try. His focus is screen printing but I prefer linoleum block printing. Here is my first attempt at linoleum block printing.
I am so excited to begin making paper to print these images onto. With this lino block I plan to make blank cards from handmade paper and cards to be included with sales of my fiber work.
As a complete side note: I am not normally a fan of Green Day these days but this performance at the Grammys gave me chills and almost moved me to tears. I think this performance really put the song in its best light and was able to convey the purpose of the song so much better than any other version.
