The holiday are now over, and some of us are now participating in DryJanuary and tidying up with the Kondo method. Whatever makes you happy. 

It’s good to have goals and challenges. But, I don’t make resolutions. I prefer to think of them as intentions. Maybe just low-key executions. 

One personal intention is printing more of what makes me happy. Another is decluttering my digital life. To that end, I will be offering some prints for sale through my personal Instagram account.

“I’m not slow—I’m deliberate.”

Full-time time employment has kept me out of the workshop quite a bit these last two years. Thankfully, the summer months do give me a few precious days to print, and futz around with my type & cuts.   

I like to think I’m maximizing this time–that I’m printing a bunch of stuff to share and sell. But, that hasn’t happened in a while. Letterpress work was always a hobby for me. It always will be. And, it’s humbling to think that people want to buy my prints, cards, and notebooks.  

With that in mind, I’ve taken my paid BigCartel site offline. That was $120 per year (+ commissions from PayPal and Stripe) that could have bought more paper, new rollers, type, or ink. And, I really don’t feel like going back to Etsy. 

I’m not sure how sales will happen going forward. Instagram posts? PayPal only? MailChimp campaigns? Maybe this site if I tinker with it? 

Trust that I’m working on it. And, I’m cranking some prints!
