In 2012, my theme was Live Lovely. And it was a full, lovely year.
I put together this photo collage as part of WordPress’s weekly photo challenge (from, you know, last week), and now that I’m finished I feel like this post gets dangerously close to the sort of blogging I try to avoid: the “here’s a record of my boring life” sort of blog. But pictures are fun, and these are the least boring parts of my year. Hover over for captions.

Nothing boring about this!!! So cool the art journal fall sabbatical and your ‘stint’ at Fallingwater… I hope 2013 brings you as much fun and happiness as 2012 did 🙂 Alexandra
Last time I looked at letterpress equipment and hot metal Linotype machines was over 30 years ago. Does my heart good to see it making a comeback… 🙂
Thanks, Alexandra & Jeff! I loved learning letterpress, Jeff. Totally made me rethink my relationship to my words when I had to search for each letter!
