long weekends and letterpress

I hope everyone enjoyed their long labor day weekend (for those of you in the US). We enjoyed a cookout, a baby birthday party, tore out sheet rock in our kitchen (in anticipation of new shelves and tile), cleaned all of the windows at our house and got to hang out and help at a friend's print shop.
The shop is just down the road from us in High Point, NC and belongs to one of Justin's professors. He was printing a new set of three-color screen print show fliers before letting J print a three-color set of one of his own designs. It was so much fun! Besides the screen prints he has amazing letter press machines, plates, and parts. I kind of just walked around in awe for a few hours, opening drawers filled with type, hoping not to get in trouble. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and I really hope we can get back in there soon!iphone photos by me

If your counter tops are scarred and dated, another way to update the kitchen countertops is to install new counters.
