National Stationery Show (Part 3)

Guest post by Kathryn of Blackbird Letterpress

Day 3, we're still smiling and the show goes on. One more day to go. Tomorrow is only half a day and then it's take down. It has been so fun to see our paper friends and often feels like "paper camp". I had planned one more posting, but I think there may be one more after that. So many good booths, I just can't cover them all.

Thanks, once again, Kathryn, for covering this show while you're working it. I like how you called them your "paper friend" . It's sounds like they're cute paper toys---or something like that. Heheheehhee. I also loved the card that said, "No one's too manly for letterpress". That's awesome.
