Yesterday started as the best day of my life.... and ended in utter heartache. My step-grandfather, who gave me my first tabletop letterpress and all the type I own, suddenly passed away yesterday evening. He will be missed by all his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and family. We are truly blessed to have had him for as long as we did. Grampa was the center stone of our family we will always have him in our hearts.
His funeral will be this Saturday at 10am — same day as Not Your Grandma's Craft Fair. Adam's mother has agreed to cover for me for most of the morning part of the fair.
Grampa's table-top letterpress will be at the fair, as promised, and you will be able to print your own bookmark. This press is the same one where my grandfather printed my aunt's wedding invitation.
Stop by the booth, say hello, even if I'm not there yet, just go and print. I know it'll make Grampa happy.
