Oh happy day! My new printer arrived in the mail today, and yes it works! My old printer died at a most inconvenient time (aka right before the Craftacular) and so I sent it in to Epson, and the nice people at Epson sent me a new one. I repeat "oh happy day!" Now the oodles of custom guest books that I have orders for can be completed and sent out.

In other news I am featured in a blog post by 622 press. You can read it here:

I have been very bad at keeping in touch with everyone, and I apologize. I am reading your blogs, daily, and will promise to post more here as well. I have been working on new books, some especially for Valentine's Day and have been painting as well. I have a new shop for my paintings if you haven't checked it out http://susanschaffer.etsy.com stop in and say hi.

A new day

I breathe a sigh of relief and happiness sitting here on such a historic day. I am so thankful that today happened I could just jump up and down with joy. I was able to (sort of) watch the inauguration today, but I am going to have to rewatch it I think. I subbed today, in my daughter's first grade class, and although they were pretty excited to see it, they were also first graders, so most of the time I spent shushing :) Congratulations and good luck, President Obama, you have a lot of work cut out for you.
