More, more, more

I just got back from the Stationery Show, which was awesome. It was great to see so many talented designers and printers in one room, one very gigantic room! I spent three whole days walking the show and trying to take in everything. Design Sponge has some great coverage of the show, including some of my favorites and a few I don't even remember seeing!

I also made a brief trip down to ICFF, where I was blown away by metalsmith Miranda Meilleur, who is one of the sweetest people I may have ever met. Her work has a perfect balance of delicate etching and raw material (steel and silver). It looks like she is expanding her line to include jewelery, which may have devastating consequences for my savings account!

Alas, my multi-day stationery extravaganza means that I now have a flooded inbox, a very full printing schedule, and an incredibly messy house. I tend to make lots of piles, which means than almost any available flat surface in our house (even the stove) is covered in cards, envelopes, junk mail, and folded laundry that I can't seem to find time to put away. I had better get moving!

How can it be May?

I can't believe it's been a whole month since I last posted! Really! An entire month! That should give you some indication about what kind of month I've had. I felt like I might be sent to the bad-blogger corner if I didn't post something today, so here I am with a brief recap of my month.

Today marked the first day of the South Wedge Farmers Market, which was very sweet and made me feel like summer is on it's way. We have a weekly second storie booth at the market and Karen was out first vendor. Her knits are so adorable and were the perfect cozy treat for a cool spring day.

I learned about Stuff White People Like this month. Let's just say, its very apparent how white I am. And what a yuppie :) I particularly like: Arrested Development, Recycling, Expensive Sandwiches, 80's Night, and Breakfast Places.

I've printed four or five sets of wedding stationery and still have tons more to print! It's been great to work with some many clients and print so many varied projects. It's one thing to see the design on the computer screen, but it's always so different to see them printed on the letterpress.

And finally, I found out that Shanna and I got into the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. Now I really have to kick it into gear and print until my arm falls off. I'm super excited!!!
