Letterpress Notebook

I love my job. I get to design and play with paper all day long.  I work at a letterpress studio which fills my need for design and working with my hands. It honestly is the best of both worlds. I also have a fabulous boss that is full of great wisdom. I'd say she is the Yoda of letterpress. At least to me she is. That is why I decided to make this handy little notebook. I was always finding myself saying "Oh this is such good information! Let me find a piece of paper to write this down." Then I'd feel like a fool as I look around and realize that I'm in a room FULL of paper. I was coming home with lots of little papers simply bound to get lost in my one bedroom apartment. It's not big but somehow I manage to misplace things!

I wanted the design of the book to reflect the company and I think I hit the mark... but you tell me. Yay? Nay? Anyways, it's the content inside that counts. I just hope I can retain all the information I've been blessed to learn and that I will become a more knowledgeable designer for it.

My talented friend Emily and owner of DesignFancy just recently opened an invitation shop! I'm loving her amazing color pallets and unique designs. Go on over to her site and tell her what you think. I know how it feels to make a website. It's hard work and positive feedback is the best! Happy weekend everyone!
