I've just had a breakthrough on a new design, so excuse me while I jump up and down a bit.

I have a series of letterpress art prints planned for Sweet Olive Press, but they're still in the design phase and a couple of weeks ago I ran into a creative hurdle on how to handle part of the artwork, and I couldn't seem to get past it. I went on designing other things and printing other work, but this block hovered, nagging, at the back of my mind all the time. I didn't even want to look at the half-made art, for fear of feeling mocked by the impossible-ness of it all.

Tonight I opened the files with a sense of duty and dread, and after about half an hour of fiddling around despondently – eureka!!! Problem solved, on with the show!

You know, I just had to share.


  1. You'll have to share the finished product!

  2. Wohoo! I love it when issues that seem so daunting work themselves out like that. : )

    Also, I nominated you for the honest scrap award. : )

  3. Can't wait to see what's next Helen. Danny's invitations were a big hit!
