I made a friend on my coffee break. 😸 For more photos of this little panther gal, check out my IG stories. She was a sweetheart. 💚 || #cat #blackcat #caturday #catcoffeebreak #notmycat #littlepanther #catsidontknow #saturdayfriends

✨Many, many thanks for the birthday posts, texts, emails, & phone calls yesterday!✨I'm very fortunate to have so many of you along for this ride. ☺️💛Starting off my 39th rotation around the sun with this guy being super GRUMPY. 🖤😾Also, I'm now working on revising my thesis proposal draft, which came back yesterday (💥happy birthday to me!?!💥), before I have to resubmit in a few days. 🤓😳🤤 || #wishmeluck #ipromisetoturn39onlyonce #birthdayface #catsofinstagram #catson #grumpycat #caturday #greycat #graycat #saturdayvibes

I worked 12 days in a row & today is my Friday. 🌀💪🏼😴 Celebratory "I Survived" ice cream from @iceageboston. ✨🍨✨ The "Perfect Matcha" is green tea ice cream, strawberries, condensed milk, mochi, Pocky & bubble waffle. #imtired #tgithursday #iceageboston #bubblewaffle #inmymouth #alwaysroomforicecream

My friend @cherryskyy666 took a tour of @makersmark & posted a clip on my FB. Here's a screen shot of this lovely, behemoth C&P 1935 printing press, used to die-cut bottle labels. #printingpressseries #printingpress #makersmark #chandlerandprice #letterpress #printmaking #diecut

You know that thing where people post these unimaginably awesome workspaces? I LOVE seeing them cause I'm nowhere near that. 😭 😂 I have one work table. It's the same table for sewing, printmaking, homework, etc. So I have to swap things out constantly. ↔️↕️ This doesn't factor in a very needy cat who takes up about 25% of the table. 😺😼 Still tired from working Commencement all weekend, but feeling inspired after reading through @pressingmattersmag, which arrived today. Going to carve up my lino for @mareblocker's Community Dictionary Project, if Fatty-not-so-Fat let's me. 💜💚|| #genmaicha #workspace #mondaymaking #linocut #lino #pressingmattersmag #linoeum #hope #communitydictionary #pfeil #deskscenes #catson #greycat #graycat #catsofinstagram #catnap #deskbroomgamestrong #letterpress #printingpressseries #printmaking

A friendly nudge for all my printmaking friends... 💛👉🏼 There is one week left to submit for the "The First One Hundred Days" gallery show. Curated by @arbalest_press, they seek printmaking works that are a response to the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
🖼Link in profile for details! 🖼

✨Can you see in the corner the reflection of the sun that finally decided to come out and play?✨DIY framing of the third & last "We Welcome" rainbow print. (My submission for the show.) 💛🌈 Thank you as always to the wonderful gang at @framersworkshop!

We have the same nostrils. 🤣👃🏻Happy Mother's Day to Momma-San (& moms in all forms)!!!💖 I'm too tired to be smart or eloquent, but there are a lot of wonderful people out there who do a very important job. 🍹🍹I'm looking forward to going to home to get "happy hour" drinks & tater tots at Sonic. #mothersday #mommasan #family #blackandwhite #waitletmetakeaselfie

Throwback Thursday: 3 years ago was the first (& only) @bowarrowpress end of the semester BBQ! ✨I love these faces.✨I was still forcibly taking awkward selfies of everyone. 💪🏼📱😜 || #tbt #letterpress #throwbackthursday #bowandarrowpress #backporchbbqselfie #backporchbbq #letterpressgang #imissfelix

Since you're probably tired of seeing the bags under my eyes & my old, needy cat, I'm eking in on "Woodtype Wednesday".👀🛍🙀

BUT check out my IG stories for cat photobombs & a list breaking down which letters of this woodtype I have.

Found these on a weekend excursion with @wskorupski: 52 pieces total, 15 characters, some lower case & some caps.

✨🤔🔎📔✨Identified them on a reading break: @hamiltonwoodtype Bradley Series, 15 line. The e's are missing the curve at the end, but the rest of the letters match up exactly.
