Creative blocks happen, and when they do, it’s hard not to get caught up in the range of negative emotions that follows, or just give up altogether.
When we came across this project Crying on Paper by Samantha Ford, we were instantly inspired and wanted to share it with our friends who may have experienced/are experiencing a serious creative block. We love that she took lemons and made limoncello.

But for now, enjoy these killer postcards (no pun intended. seriously.).
