NSS 2012 booth setup

Friday, May 25th, 2012

I’ve been preparing for the National Stationery Show since last fall and it finally happened earlier this week. All of the hard work and meltdowns were paid off by the most wonderfully awesome week, surrounded by stationery and paper lovers, yes it was heaven. I was lucky enough to share a booth with ten other members of the Ladies of Letterpress community. Having a small section in their booth, in comparison to having an entire booth to myself, made the preparation a lot easier. And when I say easier, I don’t mean easy, you still have to work your freakin butt off. But it was SO worth it; new friends, new shops and great press all of which are priceless. Here are a few shots from the booth setup.

Oh and did you see that some of my cards were featured on Design Sponge? I’m still jumping with joy over that.

And a lovely post from Oh So Beautiful Paper, which features pictures from all the Ladies of Letterpress booths.

new year, new goals

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I know this post is a bit late, a whole month to be exact but I’ve been trying to regroup this month, decide on my goals for the year, brainstorm on new products,  clean / simplify my house and business stuff like taxes. I thought that I’d share some of my goals for the year as well as some big events from 2011, which will be hard, because it was a great year! Twenty eleven brought me my best craft year yet, a new to me letterpress, my cards in two retail shops (!!!), two trips to Paris and a trip to Harry Potter world, and an entire year of working for myself. It really was a wonderful year and looking I’m looking forward to the great things that 2012 will bring. Without further ado here are some of my 2012 goals; continue creating new products and updating my shop, kick ass at the National Stationery Show (yep I’m showing there as part of the Ladies of Letterpress booth), get my new letterpress in working order (this is tippity top of the list),  participate in more craft shows, redesign fancy seeing you here, get my cards in more retail shops and attend Alt Summit in 2013 (so sad that I couldn’t go this year.) I know it’s a lot but it can and will be done.

happy belated new year to everyone! hope you have some exciting and challenging goals for this year!
