New York City has a bit more hustle and bustle in it today as the New York Paper and Stationary Show opens. It is a show that I've heard about for years and never ever dreamed that my designs would be a part of. Our dreams never come by our work alone and Stephanie has certainly given me a wonderful opportunity, as family and friends feathered my wings on this adventure!
Today also is the opening of TDIPT Mercantile . I'm introducing 2 new...ahem, OLDE crows done in Olde World Style. You can just see them going about their days sweeping their nests along with other daily duties. They remind me of the little old Italian ladies of my youth,especially Mrs. Santoros. She knows that I would gladly help her do most anything, except clean squid for dinner. I still remember her laughing eyes on that one!
There is much to do ahead with new designs going to Stephanie for after the show. Halloween is my favorite and I will be in that mode for the paper and rubber stamp line fully......although, I have a suspicion that it will flow over to other areas. There is also the Simple Goodes Show. This is a dream show for me; I'm over the moon about meeting so many of my on-line friends, but I have to plant my sewing foot firmly on the pedal. I am loving that I can fully dive into designing, it's been a long wait for me!
