Thank you everyone for your well wishes and kind comments. Using a random number generator, I selected a winner for a set of my sewn map cards: Amy and Dane Christensen.

If you guys can send an email to me at miss.sarah.anderson (at) gmail (dot) com, I'll wrap up your cards and send them to you. Thanks for reading and for writing!

There are times when you find the perfect tool. Like my bone folder, that fits perfectly in my hand and has a pleasing case. Then there are other times. When you're working on finishing a project and you're at your parents' cabin and you need a paper cutter and it's a Saturday and you have limited shopping choices.

When this happened to me, I was forced to purchase a paper cutter that was a bit on the small side with a finger guard next to the blade. Perfect for regular paper, but bad when you're trying to make straight cuts on a 48 inch long sheet of Rives BFK and the finger guard gets in the way. Something needed to be done.

Tiny saw + paper cutter + 1 minute = exponentially increased satisfaction in my purchase.

A small step for mankind, a giant step for my office supplies.

I'm staying up late to finish making my graduation announcements. I'll be back soon with some photos, after I've gotten a few hours of sleep.

This opinion piece about the Supreme Court is unusual, original, and inspiring. More handwritten blogging. (via a twitter update from Chronicle Books)

Have you guys seen this sort of thing around the internet? I'm really digging it lately.

Now I'm craving a new Moleskine.

Sites like this are what give me hope that, even in the age of technology and the general public's ever-decreasing ability to spell, there will continue to be people that care about writing, thinking, words, and paper. And those people? Those are my kind of people.

Burgeoning Bookworks

The University of Utah's book arts program (which I love love love) has a show coming up: Burgeoning Bookworks opens on May 1 in the Special Collections Gallery in the J. Willard Marriott Library (on the 4th floor). My lovely friend Valori has been in the Artists' Books class this semester and will be exhibiting, along with the rest of her class, her final project. I'm not positive, but I believe her final book will include photo booth pictures from many of her friends.

Pictures like this:

And much more blackmail fodder. I can't wait to see her final project, as well as the projects of the other students. Congrats to the artists, and I'll see you there!

Sneak a Peek

The weather is getting warmer and I'm ready for spring! Welcome to my new blog, Anderson Ink, where I'll be babbling about books and prattling on about paper. And as I'm announcing my new blog, I'm also pushing back the curtains and turning around the "open" sign.

Yep, I'm stocking my store and setting up shop. Anderson Ink is on Etsy and I'm so excited that I'll be giving away a set of sewn map cards to a random commenter. Take a look at my current (and future) items at Leave a comment on this entry on or before April 30. On May 1, I'll announce the winner.

I hope I see you around Anderson Ink. This will be fun.

Letterpress Love

I'm still customizing the blog here and have some of my own items to show you, but for now, let's swoon over some lovely letterpress until I get everything fully operational. Thanks for understanding!
Greenwich Letterpress. Based in New York City, they walk the line between traditional and modern in the best way, respecting the history of letterpress while staying creative and clever.
Beast Pieces. I fell for this site the moment I saw their masthead. Then I saw all of their great customized calling cards. I think I'm in love.
Fugu Fugu Press. E emailed the link to this shop to me. This California couple makes some of the cutest cards around.

Welcome to my new blog. Along with my sister, I write about life over at Two Loose Teeth, but I'll be talking about paper and print over here at Anderson Ink.

I'm excited to show you what inspires me and what I've created. Thanks for looking around.

My name is Sarah Anderson and I'm addicted to paper, printing, and words.
