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.

recent projects: fingerless gloves and a cardboard cat house

Friday, January 28th, 2011

These gloves were supposed to be a Christmas gift for my sister last year, but she didn’t receive them until this year. It’s not that I’m a slow knitter it’s just that I go through phases of wanting to knit. I added the final touch last night, the little heart buttons on the cuff. Aren’t they the cutest gloves you’ve ever seen! I’m so happy with the final product. If you’re interested in making these, it’s a pattern from the Fall/Winter 2008 knit.1 magazine called Rainy Day fingerless gloves.

My second project is this cute little cardboard cat house that I made while watching the Golden Globes. Basically I had been really wanting to buy my kitties a cardboard house or teepee from Loyal Luxe, but decided not to spend the money and just make one myself. I took a regular box and spray painted the inside hot pink and adjusted the flaps to make the roof. I left the sides of the roof open so then can jump in and out that way, if they please. The chimney was made with some of the leftover cardboard and the shingles with scrap paper I had around the house. The kitties love it (that’s Jesse James in the photo above) and it much better on the eyes in comparison to the regular old box I had left out for them.

Enjoy your weekend!
