With less than 50 days to go, I am making progress on the designs of my cards for the New York Stationery Show. Inspiration hits at the oddest hours, and it seems 3:00 am is when my brain is most active, pumping out ideas for yet more letter pressed cards. My booth design is in process — metal pipes, wire and clamps are the integral pieces; a huge 10′ x 8′ “tinker toy” as my boyfriend has referred to it. Today, looking at NY Magazine’s Design issue online, I found a gray rug with fun letters scattered across it; perfect. Now I have to figure out the logistics of picking it up in Soho and getting it to the show. On Friday, I will be creating the exterior cover of my show catalog with various size letters — a random assortment of metal and wood type. I still have to design my business cards and get the final files to my web programmer so that my card site can be built. I am surprised, though, that I am not overwhelmed by all of these tasks — it seems I have been able to navigate my priorities, week by week, and even with the month of May waving at me on the horizon, I feel confident all will be completed and look great.

my summer 2010 summer cards

Every year I have made an effort to design a summer card. Summer is not a holiday but important to me, as it signifies a time for vacation and a time for happy memories to happen. Some of the best summers I have had have been in foreign locations, on a beach! This year Tim, at Quality Letterpress, skillfully letter-pressed my cards on beautiful paper. They are for sale should you wish to purchase- $7.00 each. Enjoy your summer and I hope it is full of sunshine and creativity.
