JUMP IN


I've been thinking about, dreaming about what Twine & Twig will one day become... custom letterpress, yummy treats, maybe some flowers? I've been wrestling with logo ideas. Type solutions, handwritten solutions. I've drawn out a plan of what the Twine & Twig store front will look like. I've visualized the overall look and feel of the place. Meanwhile my month old, unused letterpress sits lonely in our dark basement and www.twineandtwig.blogspot.com remains a claimed yet empty site.

Last night a comment from a friend of mine kept repeating over and over in my mind... "Why don't you quit talking about your stupid letterpress and print something already!"

So, I did. The header above is my official first print! I don't totally know what I'm doing and I don't have all the supplies i need, but sometimes you just have to jump in!

oh this is just the beginning of something wonderful. i love the way you dream. i'm cheering you along each step of the way!

perhaps we could have storefronts next to each other with a secret door in the back that connects each store, where we could tell each other funny stories!
