Sycamore Street Press Letterpress Fortune Tellers

If you know me, you know how happy I am to work with some of my best friends, Eva and Kirk at Sycamore Street Press.  It's so fulfilling to have a chance to work on creative projects and thanks to all of Eva and Kirk's hard work, I get share that with so many other people.  Eva has said to me several times that if I ever wanted to take my designs and have my own stationary line, she would understand.  What I keep telling her is that designing a little bit here and there for Sycamore Street Press is my dream set-up; I only work during Creed's naps and if I had my own line, I would be too busy with paperwork and accounting and shipping things too ever have time to actually design anything.  Eva and Kirk work so hard and have created exposure for my work that I never would have obtained on my own. Plus, let's be honest, it's just fun to work with friends.

We recently collaborated on a new project that I've had swimming around in my head for months; a letterpress fortune teller! My sisters and I used to spend hours making paper fortune tellers (or cootie catchers).  Now you too can have a way to predict the future.  
I love these so much that I think everyone I know might be getting these this year as a present topper or a stocking stuffer.
Eva, just added them to her shop so you can see more pictures here.
