The party wouldn't have been very "holiday" without this special pink christmas tree.
It's never too early to pop champagne right?
I never knew I could adore big glass jars, but I do.
The very comfortable + cozy seating area. It's hard to walk away from this.
Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
Boston cream cupcakes.
For those of you who missed this fabulous party, your loss :) But lucky you, we will be throwing a Valentine's day boutique. We had so much fun planning this and during this, we might just make it a two day event!

We are getting pretty excited for Thanksgiving over here! This was our first show setting up all four wooden backdrops, perfect for our Thanksgiving spread. Rolls, mashed potatoes, gravey boat, stuffing, cranberries, yams with marshmallows, peas and carrots and a juicy turkey; made of paper of course. Delicious!
Also our first show setting up 4 card shelves.
A new holiday product, a "stocking" gift bag. Only available at shows!
I leave you with Nat, or as we refer to him: " #1 in sales." Also, the first face ever on this blog. The best brother in law a girl could ask for. Thanks to my whole team for all the help, all the time!
Don't you just love when you get a surprise in the mail? Many Thanks to Weddings in Arkansas magazine for featuring the custom honeymoon postcard made for this blushing bride. To enlarge the picture just click on it! I'm honored to be showcased next to these great designers, I love the Rehearsal dinner invite by Toast Letterpress.
Paper Pastries first San Francisco show was a huge success!
I was a little nervous being outside because I didn't have a tent or umbrella but the weather was perfect. Sunny, low 70s with a slight breeze. What more could you ask for?
The list of cities keep growing and they take up too much space on the card racks, so I covered this box in paper and made dividers. I think people like flipping through this box, its reminds me of the dewy decimal system.
The fair was constantly packed, Kelly did a great job of advertising! I loved the location, it was right off the freeway, really easy to find and had a great view of the city in the backdrop.
I miss northern California.
Booth set up was pretty much the same as HBOC, but this time we had space for two chairs.
It drives me nuts when other vendors start packing up 45 minutes before the show ends.
It shows that you are done selling so shoppers should be done buying.
These shoppers stopped by at 15 minutes before 6, that's why you don't pack up early.
I'm very excited for the next SanFrancisco show, but right now I'm off to prep for Patchwork this Sunday, in SantaAna.
I love photography, stationery, traveling & fine handmade goods. Among other things, on this blog you'll find what I do and things I like.
