I love this phrase. I have been reading a lot about how mistakes are part of the process and have been trying more and more to share those things with others to grow from them. I got to print these at home on my C&P machine in the kitchen. It was a relaxing Friday night.

Printing went really smoothly and I knocked them out way faster than expected.

The ink ended up a little heavy on some of them, but it was the first time printing on my machine in quite a few months. It should go better the next time. I left a lot of negative space surrounding the words so anyone could add their own details or doodles.

I also printed some on watercolor postcards that I will paint and send out with a few upcoming prints! I used some leftover calligraphy ink on the one below.

I am selling these guys on my Etsy shop, so pick up a few for yourself as a reminder that mistakes can be brilliant!
