more to share…

hey bloggers… i wanted to share an update of this project i began in my studio last month that i mentioned on the blog.  well between the many blocks i received from some of you bloggers, and more sets that i scoured ebay for, i decided to redo my studio table and fill it completely with several wooden letterpress blocks – check it out, it’s so “me”…

i’ve also been crazy busy this month getting ready for the cha-show (since it’s a couple weeks earlier than usual next year), yet i’ve been trying to share projects of my own as well as posting links to projects i’ve been inspired by.  i certainly hope you’ve been  enjoying them and finding some creative ideas as much as i have.  today i wanted to share another amazing tutorial from paula cheney from the “one lucky day” blog, who has once again made a project that was both creative, and when you read her post, very heartfelt.  i hope the holiday season is filling you with heartfelt inspiration too…t!m

    Im just flabbergasted that you used those for a table and some artists (my graphic design in me) are still looking for blocks to actually use…very cool finds but at the same time that I am excited by this beautiful table it saddens me… is cool!

    Here’s something that will make you want to cry. I do every time I think about it. My Father was President of a printing company back in the 70’s and had so many different types of letters.. wooden, metal.. all kinds of really neat ones. I ended up with them, boxes full and loved them. When I moved from state to state I took them with me. My last move from NM to NY, I took out what I wanted and threw the rest out in a dumpster….Yup, call me crazy..I regret that till this day. I have a few along with the printers tray, but boy do I wish I never did that.. live and learn.
    Happy New Year

    Hi Tim! I also collect old type blocks, and I just love what you did with yours in your studio! Aren’t they just so wonderful to have? I actually use them in many of my projects, and have added some tiny metal type blocks, too.

    Thanks for all your inspiration, and I wish you, your art-mates and Mario a very craft-a-licious new year!

    Tim, your table is unbelievable!!! And it IS so you, too! What kind of table is it to begin with? Something you made so that it could hold stuff? And it looks like you added glass—is that attached or because of the weight, just rests on top? Now, we’ll all be trying to re-create our own “version” of your table….thanks again for the inspiration! Happy New Year to you and Mario—looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us in the 2013!
