7th annual nss meetup may 17, 2011

I am really looking forward to the National Stationery Show this year. I don’t have a booth, am not showing my line, but AM celebrating being part of this wonderful industry by co-hosting my 7th Annual NSS Meetup! It’s Tuesday, May 17 from 7 to 9:30 pm at Brooklyn Winery. All stationery industry peeps (designers, exhibitors, reps, buyers, store owners, bloggers, wedding planners, etc) are welcome. But KINDLY RESPOND because space is limited. RSVP required for admittance. The first 50 guests to arrive will get super awesome goodie bags (trust me, you’re going to want one of these).

This year Delphine has some special friends helping out with the hosting/planning: Brooklyn Bride, Cat Seto, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup , and The Sweetest Occasion.

Many big hugs and special thanks to the amazing sponsors of this year’s meetup. We truly could not have done it without Felt & Wire, The Knot, and Mohawk. And more thank you hugs to the goodie bag sponsors: Anthology Magazine, B-List, Blossom and Branch, Brooklyn Bride, Brooklyn Winery, Cat Seto, Delphine, Eat.Shop Guides, For Your Party, Graphic Image, Green Paper Company, Kelly Guenther StudioLinnea’s Lights, Mom Inc. Daily, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup, The Sweetest Occasion, and Wendelline Papers.

National Stationery Show Update

So I had these big plans … I was going to post from the National Stationery Show every day with photos and updates. Obviously this is not happening. I have no real excuse other than that I have been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to touch the computer…and also I lost my camera for a few days. I’m headed out early to the Javits today so that I can take some photos.

Our annual Monday Morning Mimosas was a blast (co-hosted with Russell+Hazel) and I would like to thank everyone for taking the time out of your schedules to join us.

Last night I had cocktails with some lovely friends from the show, including:
Blue Barnhouse (booth 2469)
Old School Stationers (booth 1551)
Night Owl Paper Goods (booth 1644)
Orange Beautiful (1944)

I’ll post photos soon :-)

BTW: “Le Poire” at the Royalton Hotel comes highly recommended by moi: Grey Goose Poire vodka, Pear slice & champagne!

don’t forget …


If you’re on your way to NYC for NSS/ICFF/Surtex/Design Week don’t forget your umbrella! I live in sunny So. Cal, and the thought never entered my mind to pack an umbrella. I don’t even own one! But if I did it would be one of these umbrellas by Marc Jacobs.

pack rat



photos & products: Container Store

I have always loved traveling. My parents took me on my first big trip when I was only a few months old: from my home “town” of NYC to Haiti. Ever since I have had the traveling bug, I suppose, and haven’t stayed put for more than six months at a time without taking a trip at least out of state. I thought I had the packing and traveling thing down … I have lived out of a backpack for a summer (or two) in college and can go for a month-long European vacay with only a carry on.

Packing for work/trade shows, however, is another story. I find myself dumping my entire wardrobe in my (very, very, very large) suitcase. When C introduced me to these Eagle Creek Pack-It Folders I was skeptical at first, but was quickly converted when I realized I could cram (without wrinkles, no less) all my clothes for a week-long trip in one folder.

Also essential are the Nalgene leakproof bottles. No more lotion explosions!

Now if only there was a way to shrink my size nine shoes so I could cram more in my bag …

Lulu



Yesterday CC showed me this gorgeous gorgeous book when I was visiting her at SoLo: Lulu, by Lulu De Kwiatkowski. Upon return from The National Stationery Show this will be my first purchase. I look forward to a lazy day in a lounge chair, with a big, tall, alcoholic beverage and hours to pour through this book. I love visiting SoLo. CC always fills the shop with inspiring treasures.

icff


Now that our National Stationery Show booth is packed and shipped I have a few moments to breathe. I was looking at the calendar and realized that this year, because we (okay, J) did so much prep work on the booth before we shipped it, I will have time to walk my favorite show: the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) on Saturday (the day before NSS opens). The rug shown above is from Emma Gardner Design (booth 2148). I’m always blown away by the booths that exhibitors put together at ICFF, not to mention all the gorgeous & innovative product designs.

nss preview


The studio is NUTS getting the rest of our boxes ready to ship out to the Javits Center for the National Stationery Show. Minor disaster last night when our centerpiece frame broke, so today we have to scramble to find a replacement TODAY. Yikes.
