role playing

Recently, T and I were talking about the declining state of books and magazines. Slowly, but surely, great publishers of great magazines, books and newspapers are going out of business. Everything is turning digital. We were feeling kinda crushed about it all. T is in 'the biz' and I'm just a great lover of paper, in general. As things were getting worse in said 'biz', she told me she felt like sending sympathy cards to friends and colleagues. Things that said something like, "i love magazines!" or "i'll never stop reading real books!" I thought it sounded like a great idea and wanted to quickly make something for her. For them.

Well, I never move that quickly, but I've got some things in the cooker...


A long way to go yet....., but I'm really into this idea of making specific cards for specific stores or for unusual occasions at peoples request.

Hi Molly,

I like your entry. Very clever idea too.

I borrowed the Absolut video that you used on Valentine's. I linked you.
