Friends at the 2012 NSS show
May 23, 2012
Well, 4 months of stressing, and designing, and building, and crying, and cursing, and shipping, and stringing, and rearranging, and standing, and sitting, and freezing, and laughing, and crying, is coming to an end today. Man, that was fast. By the time you read this, we are going to have survived our 2nd NSS show. We wanted to share with you our favorites..some old friends, and some new friends.
Fawnsberg. Look at these girls. Look at that booth. 2nd show. They were kitty corner from us last year and we were blown away by how put together this family team was. And they did it again this year. Not only are they really, really good at what they do, they are seriously the nicest people you will ever meet. Seriously. Sisters, mom, dad..nicest, people, EVER. Patricia and Rachel, you awe us. Seriously.
Next up..Fugu Fugu Press. Ken and Shino, class act, veterans. We learned a ton from them our first show and they have been ever so kind to RedCamper, sharing resources and assisting us in ways they probably don't realize. On top of that, they do great work. Letterpress with original designs, this duo in our book is what every letterpresser should be.
McBitterson's. Jenny..she is right next door to us, we hope she likes us enough to continue being friends, because we think she's pretty cool. And damn funny. Oh yes. We love McBitterson's over here at campsite #1563. Awesome job there Ms. McBitterson. And thank you for the nutty bar. And also for not getting mad when we helped squirrel take his photo from his viewpoint.
Fisk & Fern. We look at your aprons from afar and wonder..do we want eggs..or bacon? Both, probably both.
Max & Bunny. No, that's not Max or Bunny, but they are 2 more of the nicest people ever. Must be something in the water in New York. Why are you all so nice? Another 2nd year veteran, Rebecca, just like us and Fawnsberg, is duking it out in the NSS show, trying to bring that dream to life. We think her matching envelopes and gift wrap are awesome.
Last but certainly not least, Screech Owl Design. This one woman show run by Jacqueline is pretty darn impressive, this gal is rocking it out and what you can't see behind that demeur smile and large wooden podeum is that she is doing this show solo, 7 months pregnant, with rock solid in mind and body. Such a pleasure to meet Jacqueline we hope we can be friends.
So, old and new friends, thank you for sharing the 2012 NSS show with us. We admire and respect you all.
