Summer Webinar Series for Paper Peeps

tradeshow bootcamp webinar You’ve heard me wax poetic about Tradeshow Bootcamp before (pssst, there are only a few seats left for October’s Paper Camp Worskhop in DC … do not miss out!!), but I’m soooo looking forward to the upcoming webinar series Katie has put together. Topics include:

+ Human Resources 101: Growing your Team (it’s more complicated than you think!)
+ Anatomy of a Catalog: Creating a Strong Sales Tool (learn now, save years off your life)
+ Legal 101: Protecting Yourself with Contracts (you can be sure I’ll be listening in on this one with a giant notepad!!)
+ From Pitch to Product: Publishing Stationery & Gifts with Chronicle Books (eeeek, inside info. Pinch me.)

Webinars are held Thursday evenings for four weeks, starting August first. One of the biggest perks of listening in is access to the TSBC Small Business private Facebook forum, where speakers and alumni chat and share info year round. This is an amazing opportunity to grow your business, learn from speakers who have been there, and make connections with stationery industry peers. Registration is now open!

TSBC Paper Camp Los Angeles 2013

TSBC Paper Camp LA 2013I’ve been back from Paper Camp for about a week now and am still trying to wrap my head around all the amazingness that happened there. We covered a lot of topics: wholesale, wedding albums, etiquette and ethics, trade show logistics … the information shared was phenomenal. If only TSBC existed 10 years ago when I launched Delphine! It would have saved me so many headaches (and quite a bit of money spent on mistakes).

Lucky for all of you, Katie just announced a few minutes ago that she is releasing five more seats in the sold out Tradeshow Bootcamp webinar series that starts later this month. If you’re interested hop on it, these seats are sure to fill up by the end of the day!

I Love Turquoise

I Love the Color TurquoiseI do love the color turquoise so so much. Turquoise reminds me of happy days sailing, snorkeling, and lounging about with my family.  Green is my absolute most favorite color in the world, but turquoise is a close second. It’s the color right next to green on the color wheel, so it’s no surprise that I love it so.  Looks lovely paired with gold accents, don’t you think?

Some beauties representing my fave color of the moment: No. 1 Cotton taffeta J. Crew strapless party dress in fresh emerald   No. 2 Pretty Elva Fields  ”Keeping Them Close” turquoise triple strand necklace with gold accents   No. 3  “Slapper” turquoise Butter nail polish  for my toes  No. 4  Preppy Sperry Top-Siders in pretty aqua (reminds me of my preppy middle school days)    No. 5  beautiful photo of SoCal lifeguard tower by the super talented friend Jessica Davis. 

By the way, this is an example of one of the type of posts students will be learning how to create today at Camp Delphine!
