This pendant is super cute and nice, high quality. It was personalized for our needs and arrived professionally packaged in a very timely manner. Can't wait to see how our child's birthmother likes it!
Hi! I’m Tracey (wave!)
By day I facilitate support groups for people who live with chronic pain, focusing on the mind/body connection, and at night I sneak down to my home studio and get messy. I’m nuts about making things, and like many makers I’m a dabbler. If I could eat the contents of the art materials store I probably would. However, a couple of years ago I was introduced to a world that has completely sucked me in. Printmaking with linoleum block and a printing press. After taking my first letterpress class through Minnesota Center for Book Arts in 2016 I’ve been hooked. The paper, the ink, the clanking of the old presses that have so much history and personality, the camaraderie of fellow printmakers sharing tips and tricks. Every part of it is beautiful and brings me joy. After a few more classes and lots of support from my family, I now have a Chandler and Price 8x12 printing press in my garage, a C&P Pilot Press on my desk, and a tiny little Baltimore #10 that could fit in my bicycle basket. I’m pretty much in heaven.
I’m currently working on a series of linoleum block prints about women and their friendships and relationships. Volunteers, friends, partners, family, co-workers. All the different ways that women’s lives intersect and how they support and cheer for one another. I’m always on the hunt for interesting vintage photos that would fit with the series, and then I carve portions of the images into the block and print them on the press. Along the way I ran into some old patchwork quilt instruction manuals and I fell in love with the simple and sweet designs that are fun to carve and look beautiful on cards.
Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Tracey Sandoval, and I'm the Head WorkerBee at Foxberry Ink. Thankfully I only spill coffee on 1/4 of what I make, so at least 3/4 of my creations reach completion and see the Etsy light of day. (Don't worry, I won't spill on your prints...they will be completely decaffeinated).
