Iron Curtain Press

You know when you get to that point in your day when you just need a second to decompress and let your brain rest for a second?  You might pull up Facebook or Pinterest to enjoy the fact that, just for a moment, you don't have to think one bit.  That's what I do, at least.  But then you think anyway.  About people you love and the ones that get on your nerves and about things you need to do and how everyone looks like they have it all together.  And it gets to a point where it's just not healthy.  Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not at all anti-social media.  I'm a blogger!  You don't bite the hand that feeds you.  I'm just saying, when I'm looking for a moment of rest, I've learned that Facebook and Pinterest aren't always the best places to go.  They're, at best, aspirational and, at worst, total works of fiction.  Recently, I've been spending a bit of downtime on Etsy...specifically, checking out any and every letterpress item on the site.  I don't know what it is about letterpress but it always puts me in a good mood.  Apparently I'm easy to please.  All that to say, I found this adorable little shop called Iron Curtain Press (gee did I ever take the long route).  Their cards are simple and well designed...plus they're at that perfect price point where anyone can afford one or a few as a little indulgence (alongside other culprits like Starbucks and artisan ice cream).  It's good stuff.  Good stuff, indeed.
