So, I woke up today to a text message from Adam with these two pictures:
It all started a week before my opening, when I had contacted the Union Leader to see if they could cover the opening of my studio. Unfortunately they couldn't come, but they said they would like to get a picture of me and Bertha together. A couple of weeks ago they called and asked when they could come by and take a picture of us (yes, I speak of Bertha like it's my family)... I, of course, said "tomorrow!".
After having several panic attacks and leaving messages overnight to cancel the whole thing and not hearing from anyone by 9am, I decided to head over to the studio so I could meet them and let them take a picture of us. The reporter and photographer were very nice and it didn't really feel like an interview — it was more like I was prepping the press so they could take a picture of it and they were making conversation. And, if you know me, that came easy enough!
At the end I felt good, and I thought to myself "hey... at least I'll have a little corner in a newspaper that I can frame..."
Little did I know that they were going to publish a page and a half with pictures and a full article!! My chest still wants to explode with happiness.
I am so happy and grateful. Everyone that has come to the site, gone to my shop and paid attention. And all of my friends and my family who have spread the word. Thanks for helping me bring Letterpress back... and letting me do what I love to do!
