It's not just a calendar!



We are happy to announce we have finally completed our 2009 Thyme Calendar. This challenging project has been a real labour of love for all concerned, with lots of late nights, baggy eyes and copious amounts of tea you could stand a spoon in.

Needless to say we have learnt an enormous amount about the techniques involved in the process of screen printing. Inks, gels, extenders, block outs, retarders, gum tape... not to mention that wearing rubber gloves whilst printing really isn't a good idea in this heat. Easier to get covered in the stuff and learn to love it, and I have a feeling love really is in the air with this wonderful art form.

So despite the long days and the even longer nights we are still prepared to do it all over again. Why? it's a great feeling to know your piece of work might one day be sitting on someones desk covered in pencil scribbles and post it notes with reminders that little Tommy really must go the dentist this week.

Ah yes it really does makes it all worthwhile...



















See, we told you it's not just a calendar!




And finally, I would just like to say big thank you to Bespoke Press who said wonderful things about us on their beautiful blog... and to Little Jane St again an inspirational blog with some beautiful work - thanks for your kind comments.

Happy weekend to all.
