national stationery show 2012: neon!

This past weekend it was 80 degrees and sunny in NYC — absolutely perfect outdoor weather. So naturally I decided to pack up my camera and spend two days walking around the Javits Center checking out ICFF and the National Stationery Show. While I hated being away from the sun so much (it’s like a giant casino inside — no clocks, no windows), I was excited to see old friends and new designs and to get an idea of what trends we’ll be seeing in stores this fall.

I’m breaking my trade show coverage down by trend or theme, so I’m kicking things off with my favorite (continued) stationery trend: NEON. I would wear neon head to toe if it was socially acceptable, but seeing as it’s not, I’ll have to collect these paper pieces instead. I hope you’ll enjoy this quick trip down neon lane as much as I did. xo, grace

I was there this weekend too but mainly for Surtex. There were so many great artists and designers!

This is a little belated, but does anyone know what the wood hanging mechanism that’s holding up the October page is called? I desperately want something like that and don’t know how to look for it! Is it a kind of quilt hanger?

I am a quilting junkie and your calander is awesome! Would love to see more of your work– be visiting Mat Labor Day weekend :)
