✨🍜✨tgif! wrapping up a long short week by having dinner with @chingzfood. the deliciously chewy homemade udon noodles (with extra beef & noodles) in the tangy cold broth was terrific. i can’t wait to go back! • • • • • • #almostorderedasecondbowl #tgif #yumegaarukara #udon #bostoneats #portersquare #homemadeudon #coldudon #noodlehead #tgif #inmymouth #cambridgemass #porterexchange #noodlesforlife

✨👩🏻‍🌾✨throwback thursday: i couldn’t get warmed up for half the day, so i’m already dreaming of summer. i was easily entertained for hours playing in dirt, sand, mud, clay, etc. not surprised, right? ugly the dog keeping me company. • • • • • #tbt #throwbackthursday #uglythedog #fashionplatevk #overalls #yellowboots #stillwiththebowlcutbangs #playinthedirt

💙 typeset some emily dickinson & ran a proof. considering how tired i was, i’m pretty proud that there were no errors, just one dinged up “i”. fixed that, ran another proof, & tied it up for next week. • • • • #letterpress #futura #poetry #emilydickinson #hope #metaltype #hopeisthethingwithfeathers #vandercook #printingpressseries #printmaking #printing #latergram

Simon swung by to show off the t-shirts he made.💁🏼‍♂️🕺🏼 he set & printed woodtype, then made screens, & printed shirts. he’s probably one of 3 people who is taller than me at open press. • • • • • #letterpress #woodtype #printmaking #lankyisalifestyle #printing #lanky #printingpressseries #screenprint #screenprinting #simonsays #latergram

✨first open press night of 2018!✨ i asked @birdmaddgirl to pick: friend catfish or collard greens. her choice resulted in which @kennedyprints i gave her & @mindhue approved. • • • • #letterpress #woodtype #kennedyprints #amoskennedyschoolofbadprinting #baysaintlouis #buyart #printmaking #printing #quote #friedcatfish #printingpressseries #imassouthernasfriedcatfish #latergram

First day back at work was like the “weekend hangover” times a thousand. 😑 so instead, here’s some more fun mail that arrived while i was away. my friends @drumthwacket & @johnbalestrieri spotted these last few “artifacts” from the brooklyn museum print shop, & thought to grab them for me. ✨🙌🏼✨ plus some library cards & cute mini card from @ericasirotich! • • • • • #ilovemail #brooklyn #printmaking #brooklynmuseumprintshop #brooklynball #printersblocks #letterpress #printshop #print #cuddlefishpress

Next year is the centennial of the “great boston molasses flood.✨🌊✨ today, thanks to artistic advice & these books from @letterpresscentral (plus amazing new year of the dog card), i’ll start my research. i’m planning on making a book (letterpress accordion?!) to honor the centennial. • • • • • • #molassesorbust #bostonmolassesflood #greatbostonmolassesflood #boston #molassesflood #bookarts #letterpress #greatbostonmolassesdisaster #darktide #yearofthedog #printingpressseries #wip

✨🍊✨ my three tiny jars of blood orange marmalade sealed correctly & passed the momma-san taste test. i will also never complain about the cost of a jar of marmalade after discovering first hand how much time it takes. modified from the yuzu marmalade recipe by @justonecookbook. • • • • • #bloodorange #bloodorangemarmalade #marmalade #watercanning #balljar #vacationcooking

✨🎺✨new orleans is a unique city, & its influence can be found in the food, music, & art. i was pretty happy to get one of @barebonesstudio’s prints: “creatures of carnival: little cicada”.

✨🏢✨another interstate landmark from childhood trips. this holiday inn was always visible from a high curve, & it meant we only had about 15 more minutes before reaching the french quarter. it was damaged by hurricane katrina & abandoned. about a yearish(?) ago, this graffiti appeared overnight & covers the 100-foot tall, 200-foot building on both sides. • • • • #nolalandmark #graffiti #nolagraffiti #cavemanreaderoye #chefmenteurhwy #chefmenteur #holidayinnnola #hurricankatrina #lettering #nola #graffitiletters #neworleans #latergram

I read about @maypoprestaurant on one of my flights, so we made plans to stop for dinner. hand pulled noodles tossed with blue crab, pork sausage, tofu with spicy mapo sauce were delicious! ✨🔥✨(everything was, check out my stories.) • • • • • • #eatlocal #maypopneworleans #maypop #maypopnola #handpullednoodles #neworleans #eatnola #eatneworleans #latergram
