I'm home after an incredible week spent teaching and hanging out with friends in Rochester. PRH and the babes survived with all limbs intact. Phew! I came back feeling inspired, energized, and lucky to have such an amazing crew of friends. I thought I'd share the handful of photos I took throughout the week. We made 20 books in my bookmaking course, most of which were tacked to a board in the studio. On Thursday afternoon, I took my class on a field trip to Pistachio Press: Letterpress and Local. Rachael showed us around the studios and retail space, and these are a few photos from that tour.
As it turns out, a week away was exactly what this mama needed. There are a lot of positives about working from home, but this week made me realize how much I've missed having daily, face-to-face conversations with grown-ups (besides PRH, of course). I'm sure a lot of you feel the same. How do you handle it?
