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.

Pearl’s first run

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Things have been a bit quiet here on fancy seeing you here lately. The reason for this is prepping for the National Stationery Show which has me in such a tizzy. It seems like everything is coming together nicely though, even if my to do list is endless! This past weekend I printed with my press Pearl for the first time. It took a bit of troubleshooting to figure everything out, but by the end she was printing beautifully. I’m so excited to finally have her up and running. A special thanks goes out to Baltimore Print Studios and John Falstrom for the technical support while I was setting her up.

In case you are attending NSS I’ll be in booth #2274 with the Ladies of Letterpress.
