As I was printing I remembered that the imperfections are part of the appeal of this sort of thing.  Knowing that makes the whole process much more enjoyable.  If I wanted something clean and consistent I would have a machine do it.  Of course, I want to balance that freedom with fairly careful craftsmanship. 

Seeing as the printing alone took me a whole day this may be the last time I do a hand-printed Christmas card.  Its 2 days after Christmas and we still have work to do to get them out.  I love the idea, but my time and energy are limited.
