This will be our third year exhibiting at the National Stationery Show (NSS), and it starts in just 18 days! Last week, I made a calendar to keep track of all the little things that need to be completed before we leave for the show on May 15. You guys, there are so many little things! This calendar is a lifesaver, and it’s really helping me stay sane.

Exhibiting at a trade show is a lot of work, and keeping track of all of the details can be daunting. Crossing things off the list is majorly satisfying! My little spur-of-the-moment calendar helps me visualize just how much I’ve done in a week (and also how close the show is!).

So, what am I working on right now? Well, I’m putting together the pre-show mailers that we’ll be sending to retail stores and press. They’re basically an invitation to come visit our booth at the show, and I’m really excited about them. The mailers are two pieces, and I’m tying them with twine to make a pretty little package. My mom’s going to address the envelopes with a pretty silver pen. Her handwriting is fancier than mine. Thank goodness for moms!

I’ll share the mailers when they’re complete, so stay tuned!

The National Stationery Show is less than a month away (eek!), so we’re buckling down over here. We’re using lists, detailed calendars, and booth diagrams to keep all of the details organized. Organization certainly helps us stay sane in the midst of all of the prep work, but music makes everything more fun. This month we’ve been listening to a few songs on repeat. Find the playlist (and links to videos) below!

Mother’s Day is coming up! It’s about a month away, falling on May 11th, this year. I’m starting to think about what to give my mom, gramma, and mother-in-law. Last year, these brag books were a big hit!

When I was little, Mother’s Day was something I’d know was coming, but I could never get it together to plan ahead. I’d bring home whatever Mother’s Day themed art project we’d done at school, and then I’d wake up that second Sunday in May and think “this isn’t good enough!” So I’d labor over a handmade card, and proudly present it to my mom. I think she liked them (she still has many of them)!

If you’re not up for making a card with glue and glitter and cut up magazines, we’ve got you covered!

It feels like spring is here to stay! We’ve been enjoying the warmer weather by spending as much time as possible outside. Crocuses are popping up quickly, and over the weekend somebody was barbecuing! It smelled amazing.
