.well, sh*t.







Yes, that was my first ever naughty word in a blog title. This one deserves it. Remember the "Preserve Biodiversity" poster? Notice how easily you can read these words on my linoleum block? That's because I failed to carve it backwards. I carved it forwards instead, which would print backwards. Arrhguuuurrrrrrghghhhhh. What the heck. No, what the hell. This was bad. I'll bet this block took my 8 hours to carve. And it looked pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. Oh my goodness... So, just thought I would let you know why I hadn't printed that poster yet. Alright, that's enough of that.

My show is progressing really well. We picked senior spaces yesterday, so I'll have more about that this weekend. As long as whatever they plan on providing to us for hanging our stuff looks good (we can't hang on the actual walls...), I think my show will be mostly like I envisioned it. I'm finally feeling really excited!

Oh sh*t indeed. Sonofa! Well, they say one learns best through error. I'll bet you'll never do that again. It's just too bad it had to be this particular project that you carved backwards vs. a tiny "hi" or something like that.

Good luck on the rest.

Oh, that sucks. But the carving looks great! (I like the closeup photo). Maybe you could print it on something transparent...tracing paper, vellum...

Yes, it's true, I'll never do this again. Actually, it would be just like me to do it again. Ha! I hope not, though. Carlene, I was thinking about that. I think I'll hang the block in my house, but I might try printing it onto vellum and seeing how that looks... Great idea :)

Oh - I did the same exact thing! We were going to use a stamp for store bags.... carved it backwards :-( very disappointing; but can guarantee i will never do that again after all that time. So sorry!

Thanks for the nice comments, guys :) I was very sad. It's been a couple weeks, so of course I'm over it now. I think I'm ready to carve again... And I will be doing it the correct way - backwards!
