{courtneycourtney} #4 love…

You’ve heard me say it before, but I will say it again- I love sending Courtney (courtneycourtney)  my prints. The last batch I sent her, I snuck in an extra special tee. I wanted to have a courtneycourtney tee made for Sayer’s 4th birthday & I included his favorite owl tee that he had outgrown. Courtney worked her magic & made the coolest tee ever! Sayer just loves it. His birthday was on Wednesday & he has worn it everyday since! It has been in the wash a number of times already & has even survived a big glop of blue frosting on the front.

This is what a happy courtneycourtney customer looks like in case you wondered (& a brand new 4 year old). Her tees & dresses inspire dancing & fits of giggles. 

The latest 3 dresses using KLT prints are so adorable as well! If you are interested in purchasing some of her creations, make sure you sign up for Courtney’s emails here so you can see fun new photoshoots & all of the new courtneycourtney dresses that are available for purchase. 

Courtney, thanks for sharing your vision- you are an inspiration! You made my 4 year old so happy & proud!  I think he choreographed that dance for you.

{Valentine} Owl Couple…

February is my all time favorite month. So I guess it goes without saying that I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day too. I remember so fondly, how carefully I used to select my valentines for all of my classmates when I was little. Because I love this sweet holiday, I just added an owl couple letterpress print (limited edition) to the shop last night with the thought that it would be a nice gift for someone special. My owl couple 2011 calendar has been marked down as well. 
Hope everyone had a great weekend! How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

{Letterpress} The smile behind the print…

Letterpress is a form of printmaking that I absolutely adore. I respond to the tactile quality, the way it looks, the process, and the lovely paper used. Over the years, I patiently waited for the most appropriate klt:project to utilize this gorgeous way of printing. When I decided to have prints made from my thread drawings, it seemed like the match that I had been waiting for. When my drawing is done in thread, the image is raised- when made into a letterpress print, the image is impressed in the paper. I love that they are both tactile in different ways. Today I am happy to introduce to you, 5 more klt:letterpress prints (owl bride & groom, german pointer, sandpiper, & squirrel). I used a different paper this time around that I just fell in love with- 100% cotton, white pearl – Crane Lettra  paper… & oh it is yummy!

But there is another reason that I’m thrilled to have letterpress prints made from my thread drawings- I get to work with the wonderfully talented, creative & witty,  Amy E. Redmond– the smile behind my prints. Amy and I met years ago when I was working at the Museum of Northwest Art. I was so excited to reconnect with her on this project (she also prints all of my hangtags & business cards). Amy prints from her home studio on her 1903 Colts Armory Press. Amy purchased this press from her dear pals at Stern & Faye, Printers and it’s her favorite of the 3 presses that she has owned (above picture taken in the Fall ’08- the first time she printed on it). You’ve probably seen and enjoyed Amy’s work and not even known it was hers. She does all of the letterpress printing for Kata Golda and has a press in her Port Townsend (WA) studio that she uses as well. Here is a little 30 second video of Amy printing. 

I know I am starting to sound like a broken record, but really, I love what I do! Collaboration is what makes klt:works extra special. When I can meet and work with true & honest artists that are working with their hands, from the heart, I couldn’t be more lucky. It just makes my day all that more interesting.  For that reason, I plan on working with Amy for as long as I can keep the ideas coming and she wants to take them on. So, be prepared to see many more klt:letterpress projects in the future. And as if you weren’t already sold on how cool the letterpress process is, just press play…
