getting ready for Surtex...


Wednesday already?! No... I'd like to purchase some more time...Please:)
Saturday morning I'm leaving to New York for Surtex. So much to do, so much to see...I'm dizzy with anticipation! Spent the day getting things together for the show. I put 48 of my favorite prints into shiny sleeves. Many thanks to Rigel from Monkey Powered for  doing such awesome job on printing! There's nothing like seeing your work printed. It made me so happy! I want to do more, more, more... Do I really need to sleep and eat?:)
Pardon the flash photography. It's hard to find daylight this close to midnight.

Good luck! I really, really love the little fruit headed print in the last pic. Does anyone in town sell your work?

funny I was just about to print out some new patterns myself to show clients there and I saw your post!!

They look great!! Good idea about sleeves you do not want hands allover the nice prints. I myself just print out from the computer since generally they just want to see the design and so I do not bring nice printouts.

I am soooo mad its going to rain Friday, Sat, Sun!! I have big plans for all 3 nights and hate when it rains there, no cabs and such a mess!! Argh!

Hey I love that red riding hood print!! soo clever! and the colors are great.

See you soon!!

Helen, I didn't know you were going to NY! I got an email from Surtex the other day. I will be there too! I have never even seen this show before and am exhibiting for the first time. I am scared silly! And so much to do!

Come visit me in Booth 1166 Miss 'N Nick Designs!

Best of luck to you!

Very impressive! If I go, I will be sure to look for you!

Nicole said...

Helen- I just realized that Surtex is sort of a different show. I am at the National Stationery show. But both are at the Javits center. I would imagine that both are open to the attendees? I don't know. It is rather related.

orange you lucky! said...

Thanks for all the support, ladies!
The Stationery show is in the same building at the same time (along with the ICFF show that I can't wait to see) and the one pass would let you into all 3.
See you there:)

It can't succeed in fact, that's what I believe.
