The Best Part of The Stationery Show

Hi there. I had the chance to attend the NSS over the weekend. It was so nice to see some old friends and speak to wonderful and talented people. I will be collecting my notes and look forward to sharing with you my point of view. After 15 years of attending the show, I have to say, this product has been the highlight for me. They were giving a sample away to anyone who visited their booth. (Great move since I was stopped like every 15 minutes with people asking me where did I get this? Even as I walked the ICFF - Furniture Show...LOL.) Just seeing each of my girls with a big smile on their faces as they each got one of these when I came home makes all the aching muscles from lugging catalogs and samples all the worth while. By the way, they named their pet balloon Princess and Coco. Have a good week!

Inspiration & Illustration

Do you sometimes feel like in a rut? Can be creatively or you next career path? Or something else? I go through it from time to time. Sometimes it's needing to see the challenges as opportunities and not give up, right? Here are some beautiful illustrations and inspirations from Alyssa Nassner which she sells as prints on her Etsy site. I think I need to pick up some of these to frame around the house and studio to give me that extra boost.

Paper Lanterns

Loving these paper lanterns from The Land of Nod. They can be clustered in the corner with a bunch of other solid paper lanterns or mix and match with other patterns they have. It's tempting to buy a few since they are pretty affordable.
