Rose and Ben’s Christmas Decor.

24 Dec

Here is me and Ben’s attempt at an Alexander Girard inspired christmas tree. After much stalling and frustratin’ myself over the right kinda paper, and the colors, buh, I decided that it isn’t exactly what I would have liked it to look like…but maybe next year we will refine! That’s a great thing about Christmas…it comes again next year. So I have come to comfort myself in saying that each year is another opportunity to make it better. That’s pretty optimistic right? YUP. YUP. That’s what I am trying to be about dear Mimomito. We shall see how long that lasts.

Christmas Cards 2010: $25
Sure, everyone’s getting into the letterpress game these days, but we’ve been itching for a reason to work with our local metal type addicts Jill, Ray and Tray Nichols at Lead Graffiti. Hipsters, long beards, waxed mustaches and single speeds aside, you still can’t beat the tactile experience of banging a crisp inked impression into soft paper and the euphoria associated with the risk of getting a piece of loose clothing caught in the reciprocating maw of a Heidelberg windmill.

7 Cards
One each of seven designs
4.25 x 5.5 in (108 x 140 mm)
Crane Lettra 110#
French Construction brick envelopes
Special custom box

Always have been a last minute Christmas shopper. I unfortunately seem to be going down this bumpy horrible-nerve wrecking road for the rest of my procrastinated life. *Deep sigh. Looking at these Christmas cards from House Industries, has made me realize that itsa bout time to change my ways. Because guis I am a lil bummed. A good kinda bummed-these things are great looking!Still, I dont know why I didn’t check these dudes out sooner (14 dollars for second day shipping…I could maybe give them out with presents? hm.). There might still be some time…
Also for next years festivites:
