pressing letters.

Auntie B and i visited my sister at 
a letterpress class she is taking this semester.
yes, she is an architect by day and a creative mastermind by night.

and how freaking cute is my sister?
so freaking cute.
as my mother-in-law says,
“she could make a garbage bag look good.”
she could.

i was amazed at the trays and trays and trays filled with different fonts.
it was glorious.
here are some gigantic wooden letters.

you just couldn’t help but be inspired to create something.

my sis does about nineteen things at once
to make one lovely letterpress card. 

and who knew you would add color to the entire machine?
it’s called frosting the cake.
i know.
so perfect. 

and how cute is this red stool?
so cute.
i’ll take six, thank you very much.

my sis taught us the little dance that you must do 
with your feet in order to pull the lever smoothly. 

you really must be a good problem solver in order to do letterpress.
there is a lot of adjusting and tweaking and fixing.
to make things just perfectly right.

“thanks” for letting us come, Aunt WW!

This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: 
His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph,
but before they came together,
she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 
Matthew 1:18
