Christmas press.


{Photo from Boxcar press...how things can turn out using professional plates and the right technique!}

Zach picked out the sweetest Christmas gift this year.  It's my own little letterpress kit from Hobby Lobby (you need this, too) so I can feed my paper obsession!  Yipee.  I've only had a chance to use it a little bit so far, but my plan is to sit down this afternoon and try it out more...I'm so excited!  I think it will take a bit to figure out, but the indent is really deep and nice.  And thanks to Paper Crave and Boxcar Press, I now know its special quirks and how to improve.  I know this in no way replaces  professional letterpress, but I'm excited to use it on my own.  I'll have to post the results!
