So I'm KICKING MYSELF that I'm not at the National Stationary Show that starts this weekend in NYC.
If you know me, you know I'm all things paper and ribbon. Cards, stationary, wrapping paper, ribbon, embellishments, etc. The list goes on. To say that I have tons of stationary and note cards and the like would be, well, a severe understatement. Matter of fact, I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to turn a closet into a haven for it all.
Anyway, my good friend Dianne of Colorblind Productions, invited me to go this year and I declined and opted to go to Blogher instead. Maybe D invited me because she walked me into Kate's Paperie for the first time in NYC, where I literally teared up. And while I'm excited for Blogher, I'm kicking myself that I'm not at the NSS. I'm friends with several stationary designers who are abuzz on Twitter about packing up and heading to the show. It's like being left behind while your friends are going to the carnival. LOL
But next year is my year. I'm saying it here and now. D and I are gonna take it by storm!
(I should probably purchase extra luggage between now and then to lug it all home in, right?)
I leave you with photos of a previous show. As usual, click on the photos for their full fabulousness.
Swoon. Drool. Bliss.
