Wow, am I the worst blogger ever, or what? It’s been over 2 months since my last confession, I mean blog entry. It has also been over a month since the SLP birthday party which I meant to tell you about ages ago. Sigh. Better late then never, right?
Well, it was just over two years ago that we booked our first really real letterpress job. So on October 23rd, we celebrated turning 2 with an open studio event. It was a lot of work getting the studio into “party mode” but it was well worth it! We had a stroll down memory lane as we pulled out samples of past jobs and strung them up around the room. We installed fresh track lighting and had beautiful fresh flowers from our friends and neighbors Brighter Day Floral. I was especially proud to be wearing a hand-painted SLP shirt, created by our talented friend Summer, of Summer House Studios as well as an amazing corsage sent by the sweet peeps at Wordshop in Denver.
Matthew had the press running and each guest left with a commemorative “Happy Birthday” card. The guests did some early holiday shopping and we gave away a bunch of prizes including a portrait package from fabulous photographer Maureen Sullivan (Sullivan Studios), another neighbor from the Nobo hood. The playlist was just right and there was carrot cake for all. What more could you ask for?
