DearHancock_MuseumNailsDearHancock_WonderBunnyWrapI’m incredibly jazzed to bring you Dear Hancock’s sneak peek, as it features three distinctive products that they are well known for: great calendars, modern nail wraps and BUNNIES!

Dear Hancock’s desk calendar’s sell out each year and I’m certain that the 2016 updated version of  “The Imagined Desks of Historical Women” will be no exception. They have added some new desks to this version, including Ray Eames, Betsy Ross and Louisa May Alcott. The newest Museum Nails collaboration is such a beauty, designed by Ashley Goldberg (yay PDX designers!), I cannot wait for these to grace my fingertips — perfect spring palette! And last, but most certainly not least, Dear Hancock’s bunny cards have taken on a bit of a cult following, you can now deck your gifts out in either “Wonder Bunny” (shown above) or “Bunny with Maracas” wrap, yippeee! Ogle these and more in Booth No. 2052.

I’ve been a follower and fan of Sarah’s beautiful and distinctive style for awhile and was delighted when Sarah agreed to send a few images of her new NSS releases my way. The wooden cake toppers are a brand new category and there will be a total of three debuting at the show, with plans to expand the offering. Do not miss the Parrott Design Studio Booth — No. 2064!

Iron-Curtain-Press-_-Crow-&-Canary1) Iron Curtain Press | Crow & Canary Blog3) Iron Curtain Press | Crow & Canary Blog2) Iron Curtain Press | Crow & Canary BlogI audibly squealed when I saw these new birthday cards from Iron Curtain Press and also had a very distinctive craving for cake and tacos! Iron Curtain Press will be returning to the Stationery Show with 42 new cards and a new category – prints – in which they will have 10 available to order. 2013 was their first year at NSS and they made quite a splash, so be sure that you swing by Booth No. 1962 to ogle all of the awesomeness!

introducing: olivebox

September 19, 2012  /  Uncategorized

We are truly excited to be working with OliveBox, the new subscription service for themed paper and gift goodies! I was a delighted recipient of September’s floral themed box which featured a card and notebooks from Rifle Paper Co., stickers from Knot & Bow and a heavenly scented soap from Saipua.
 
OliveBox officially launched this week and in honor of their debut, they are giving away a gorgeous vintage typewriter. You can enter to win by signing up for a subscription by 9/21/12.
 
And we are particularly excited about October’s box, as a beloved Crow and Canary designer is featured with one of our favorite new products. Definitely not to be missed!

Screech Owl Design’s distinctive illustrations never fail to impress me. I’ve bought and sent many of their cards since their entree in 2008. Amongst new card designs debuting at NSS, Screech Owl Design is also introducing two calendars for 2013. I’m quite excited to check them out in their entirety at NSS!

hot off the press from tabletop made.

November 22, 2011  /  Uncategorized

I seriously adore everything that Tabletop Made touches. Lucky me, they just released a slew of new card in their Etsy shop. The “You’re a Peach” card would be positively perfect for Kimberley, our east coast C&C rep. I’m particularly loving this postcard – I can think of at least a dozen people I want to send it to!
