H E L L O !
My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.

What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

Letterpress video

I woke up a week ago with a frozen neck and a pinched nerve that affected me down to the right arm. It feels like each day I get more range and mobility back to my arm, and each morning I wake up in pain again. Could it be my bed?

It made everyday chores and working hard but I've been careful not to make it worse. Thank goodness I'm left handed or I wouldn't be able to cut at all (or type). I'll show you tomorrow what I've been working on this week. I'm hoping that like with the pinched nerve and mild infection I had in my lower back earlier this year, this too will pass with time. Hopefully this time quicker than 2 months.

In the meantime, I have letterpress on the mind again in the wake of the National Stationery Show. Waiting for new stationery previewed there to be released... Have you seen this video by Naomie Ross?
