A Change of Direction


Soooo..... Well, I didn't think I'd been away from the blog so long. It's been a very educational couple of weeks. So, I redid the print, and found that the grains were so open on the wood that it was very hard to see the details. So, after consulting some online sources, I treated the blocks with a solution of glue and water and sanded them down. And it still sucked. So, I've decided to go with carving linoleum. I'd been thinking of carving linoleum for some time, mainly because it's made of linseed oil and sawdust, which means it's biodegradable. It's also cheaper. There's no grain, so that issue will be done with. It will be very interesting to see how it turns out.
As for the greeting cards -- the long awaited greeting cards, we've had another setback. I'm just trying to gather up enough resources to fund the purchase of the equipment. At this point, it doesn't look like there will be Christmas Cards this year. On the plus side, I've decided to pay the mortgage instead! Look at me and my crazy priorities!
The linoleum should be here for the weekend, I hope, and then this blog might actually be worth checking in on!
