I just returned from the National Stationery Show in New York and had such a great time. I got to see a ton of friends, meet a bunch of people who I admire, and eat lots of great food. Quite a toss-up for what I enjoyed the most. My full NSS show recap is over on the Trohv blog. But, I thought that I would share some images that I did not feature in the Trohv piece with all of you!
One of my favorites of the show was Belle & Union Co. Meg and her husband live in Savanna, Georgia and have created a really special line.
The little touches, like the camper, really made this booth special for me.
Dishtowels that come packaged in hand printed berry baskets…
Just some little objects to create a story, great merchandising.
The Regional Assembly of Text was at the show for the first time and had lovely cards. Many of them incorporated buttons so it only made sense that they also packaged and sold buttons as well. I loved the Great Outdoors set but was also very tempted by the Sailors and Pirates collection.
The Linda & Harriett 2013 oversized calendar was the hit of the show. Everyone was talking about it. More a piece of art, or pieces of art then a family calendar this is a truly special piece. I am planning on hanging mine at the top of our stairs.
Wild Ink Press is one of my favorite place to stop in and visit. This year there were three dozen new cards, and a ton of awards by the end of the show! One of my favorite series was the Three Things cards. Also, there is always fantastic swag at Rebekah’s booth. This year there were key fobs fashioned from vintage wood type.
My new crush this year is Sugar Paper from LA. They have a really nice balance of fancy sophistication with a touch of rustic. Right up my alley. You should also check them out on Pinterest, their boards are dreamy! My four-year wedding anniversary is this weekend so I thought I would share some mushy cards. While a lot of people say it, I am luck enough to be among the few, who did fall in love with my best friend. We have been together for 12 years and I still consider this to be true!
