Oh, what, you don’t come here for the bacon?

[see previous post if this title doesn’t make any sense to you!]

Sorry loyal readers, I’ve been a little bit all over the place lately. Bacon, houseplants… I don’t know what this blog is coming to anymore.

This weekend marked the first in quite a while (and the last for an equally long while) in which I didn’t have to devote any time to that job that pays my bills. I spent two days doing nothing but letterpress, and let me tell you, I am not in printing shape anymore. No, it’s not that strenuous, I am just that out of shape.

Anyway, that means loads of new work coming soon, and in the mean time, another way to bring a little letterpress into your life:

Super fun paper circles! For the last year or so, I’ve been holding on to all my scraps and test papers and pieces that didn’t turn out quite right. So they’re not perfect, but there’s still something really beautiful about the intersecting designs…too beautiful to end up in the trash can. Perfect for scrapbookers, card makers, artists or even just to use as confetti on your next party table, these little discs add whimsy to any project.

Non Pork Eaters, please look away

I’ve been chatting with the lovely and talented Megan of Foodalution about a possible project, so of course I’ve been spending a little time on her blog, which led me to the greatest discovery of all time: CANDIED BACON! It’s so easy and utterly amazing, check it out!

Walking on Air

I’ve been looking for easy-to-manage house plants for quite a while now—specifically succulents or epiphytes, as I’m notorious for killing even the heartiest of vegetation—and there sitting on the etsy homepage today, the answer to my search! toHOLD is a unique line of botanical decor designed with live tillandsia air plants by Kara, who shares my house plant woes and has a self-described “black thumb.” All hail the un-killable plant!
