Letterpress, Soul Searching and Keeping It Real
Today’s the day, big announcement! I'm blogging, but I'm not a blogger. Maybe the term "blogging" intimidates me. So I'm just going to write about what I know. Here’s an overview of what I plan on sharing here on the Harken Press blog and my general point of view…
I love the craft of letterpress. Proud paper nerd here. I love going out into the studio and getting my hands dirty and creating beautiful stationery. I get lost out there and time flies by. I know not everyone shares my passion for the letterpress process, but in case you’re curious to see what it’s all about or think giant old machinery is cool, I’ll be sharing a more in depth behind-the-scenes look into the Harken Press studio.
I’m new to the Mom game. So far, I can tell you the struggle between being an solopreneur and a working Mom is real (at least for me). I knew juggling a baby and a business would be a challenge, but you don’t know what you don’t know. Things like Mom guilt and daycare are all new to me. So in the spirit of solidarity and feminism, I’m going to share the not-so-pretty realness, as I stumble through work-life balance in hopes that it will make someone else out there feel a little better. I got you girl. BTW, there’s no such thing as “work-life balance”.
