We didn't end up using the girl ones because I we ended up have a boy. But they worked wonderfully!

About

Thimblepress®

Hello there!!! So here is my short (well if you know me, I can't tell a short story) story...

In 2011, curiosity got the best of me and I purchased a 1925, 10 x 15 Chandler + Price platen press from Lexington, KY and hauled it all the way back to Mississippi on tiny trailer with just one other person as my letterpress-moving sidekick (Katy Braden). With the press acquired, I decided to open up Thimblepress. The name was derived from my childhood, now continued on to adulthood, collection of thimbles from my travels (yeah, kind of dorky, again, if you know me this is not surprising). Every time I traveled to a new state I got a thimble to mark my visit. A few of them have broken from moving different places, but I still keep the collection right in my office. To me a thimble represents my travels, family, grandmothers, and all the big and small things that make life so wonderful. Sometimes just a thimbleful of love, a smile, hug, or glance can change something or make a difference. :)
Not only is Thimblepress a letterpress studio, it is an art studio, sewing studio, design studio, woodworking studio, and basically anything creative that I want to try my hand at next. With the love of handmade, art, color and pattern from my grandmothers, I hope to make Thimblepress a reflection of my life, love of family, and favorite places in the world; one of them being Mississippi. I knew at the age of five when I dressed up as an artist for kindergarten career day, that i would indeed be that (maybe minus the french beret, dried paint palette, and whitewashed jeans).

I have two amazing office helpers. One of them is Willow, a fluffy sometimes diva-like golden doodle who lets me know when I have been working too long, and quite often puts me in my place (not the other way around). The other, a rescue cat named Norman who loves sleep, being lazy, purring, and eating food out of his fancy ceramic food bowl. Both are an integral part of keeping Thimblepress afloat. Most importantly they make sure it is known by all that they are the king and queen of Thimblepress.
