Merrily we prance about

Happy New Year! Space year 2007, what a time to be alive...Lots of ideas for prints, but too much other stuff going on at the moment to get much printing done. We're also low on supplies at the moment so are putting together a Lawrence order, and toying with the idea of buying maple blocks from the US.

We managed to do a few things last weekend in between watching the football (normally we disdain it but we're suckers for the 'magic of the cup' hem hem) including printing these jazzy cards.

It started off as a scrap of lino which we were attacking with our new tools just to see how they cut, but in the end we decided that we may as well print it. Not quite a masterpiece, but good fun all the same.

We also finally got round to mounting and framing our Melanie Wickham print which we bought at the Printmaker's Gallery in St Ives back in October. Our framing expertise is slightly lacking, but once it was on the wall and we stood back a bit it looked great! Here's our ever so neat framing/dining room table and assorted tools (including essential Norwich Castle Museum souvenir rubber).

And here's a bigger pic of the print. We love it.

Hope everyone has a top fun 2007. Love from J and S xx
