I have been awash in fun ideas the last week or so for the press and the etsy shop, including little handmade journals, new postcards, and a few other surprises coming in September. Also I've been thinking, since I've been on a designing binge, maybe it's time for some broadsides of local women poets. You can't seem to swing a stick without hitting one these days (a poet that is) and I feel like I could do more somehow than just the few chapbooks we manage to publish by local authors. Maybe in sets of three once or twice a year. Some nice paper, maybe some woodblock printing or linocuts. Oh, the hotness.
In other news, speaking of hotness, it's ridiculously so outside. It's supposed to last the week I hate to say it, but I'm getting antsy for September and October. As much as I pine for summer all winter and spring, when it gets muggy like this, I start wanting fall. Of course I hate November and the ensuing five more months of winter, but what can you do?
I am waiting for edits on Alphabet for M and plan to print them over the weekend if all goes well. This weekend was spent making journals, some collaging ,cleaning and organizing the kitchen and studio, and dying some more slips a lovely pink and dark brown, which are I'm convinced the most comfy thing to sleep in these days with the heat.
