Its been a fantastically exciting and busy week !
Claudia, from The Paris Apartment contacted me for a collaboration to show my card line in her booth at the NYC Gift and Textiles show at the Javits Center.
Tons of printing and finishing and a rush ( again) to Fed Ex and off went twelve little boxed sets of Maries, and Au Claire de Lune, and French Costume Design cards. Whew ! Lots of hyperventilating and heavy breathing produced a nice three lb box of lovely gift wrapped samples for the show. Its like sending off my children to pre-school and I stress out beyond belief until I know what becomes of them without me !
I so have admired Claudia and have poured over her lovely book over the past couple of years and dreamed many times of joining her in one of her group tours of Paris, so this is such a huge compliment and a great opportunity for others to see my card line in what I know will be a beautiful setting.
