National Stationery Show 2012

And.... we're back... After 10 days in New York (with an awesome side trip to Connecticut with no internet or phone) we're back in full force in the studio. The Stationery Show was great. It's so fantastic to be reunited with some amazing designers/printers/ & more importantly friends and spend 4-6 days setting up, selling, dismantling in "the same boat". I am incredibly fortunate to know such wonderful people.

So here are a few pics of our booth...... (thanks again to Rebecca Kreisler for taking my seed ideas for the pop-up and making it an AWESOME animal world reality!)

We also covered the show for Poppytalk, and you can see all the pics of 40+ other artists/designers' booths in the 5 parts linked below.

NSS 2012, booth 1959, & Poppytalk!

Wow, I think this is the busiest time of year for us. But what fun. We're headed to the National Stationery Show in NY the end of this week. If you're attending, please come by and say hello, booth # 1959. We'll be the bright yellow corner and we have a paper cut surprise, so come see. The show is held at the Javit's Center May 20-23. It's a super great time where we get to meet and talk to our retailers, connect with our printing/designing peeps, and discover new friends and inspiration. I'm lucky to have 2 amazing cousins that put me up and help me with the show, set-up to sales. Yvonne and Margie, you rock! (And every night it's like I have my own personal chef-amazing)

While we're there, we are also reporting what we see, booths to people, for Poppytalk. So don't miss the coverage at And you can see a little preview of what we're bringing here.

The Poppytalk Paper Pops market is up and looks great. Find Father's day gifts, paper loves, and bits you can't live without. Check out the Lookbook below, it's as awesome as ever! (I LOVE the astronaut pic)
