English Muse: The Missing Link

The Missing Link

Uncle Beefy

So how do, Kids? Did you miss me? Have you been loving ALL of my posts here at The English Muse? Whaaaat...?!?! You haven't the foggiest notion of that lunatic up there in the top hat? Posts? What posts? Believe me, it's likely the same reaction that Tina is having at this very moment due to my excessive tardiness in finally coming 'round to "The Muse". But here I am now in all my dysfunctional glory! (And, let's face it, you've had some pretty stellar guest bloggers guiding the way thus far. Wouldn't you say? Round of applause, I say!)

So, allow me to briefly introduce myself by telling you all that I write for the blog "The Bedlam of Beefy". I hail from the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. where I do the best I can to keep the damp conditions from mossing over my brain. (Not always successful I fear.) I am a jack-of-all-trades, if there ever was one, but have a personal affinity for printmaking and baking. Along with that would be strong leanings toward design, fashion, pop music (Yes, I admit it.), food, France, England (Of course!), and perhaps a dash of eccentric mental instability! What fun, eh?

I've laboured over what musings I should share with you. Where should I begin? And if I have talents aside from rambling it would most certainly lie in the "over-thinking" category. "Just start for heaven's sake!" Am I right? So here goes...

Missing Q Press 2010 Calendar

Kids, this blogsophere we sail through is a pretty amazing place. It's amazing the connections that are made far and wide. (Like Miss Tina & Uncle Beefy for example!) Often times we orbit around one another but every once in awhile the stars align and galaxies collide in the best possible way. This was the case a short time ago when some Texas bloggers and crew ventured north to Seattle and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting up with Sam of the phenomenal blog style/SWOON & the amazing Jason of Missing Q Press.

Jason just released his 2010 Calendar and it is one spectacular beauty to behold! He does some seriously fantastic work, my friends, and this would be one gorgeous way to start off the New Year. He did some business cards for me that I have the absolute hardest time giving away! I know, not the point, but certainly a testament to the man's talent for seductive letterpress. You can feel the spell coming over you already... can't you? Well, with an edition of only 150 you better get your mitts on 'em while you can! So go on now... skeedaddle! Get thee to Etsy!

Aw, Uncle B, it's so cool to see you here, sharing beautiful letterpressed delights with the bloggosphere! I'm in love with lovely calendars as a whole, and the one featured is an absolute gem. Once 2010 starts, you'll never want it to end!

Hola, Ladies! Miss Tina, again, thanks for your patience in waiting for me to get on the stick with guest posting! MWAH! Hopefully, I'll come up with some decent offerings for all y'all during my stay. :)

Thanks for the sweet words and the warm welcome, Kids! Your Uncle is blushing... and not because of the cocktail I can assure you! Oh behave! ;)
