I went to NYC for a week to see the Surtex and Stationary shows. These shows are for the giftware industry. I saw some awesome products and designs and had my work in Total Art Licensing (one of the big magazines they give out for the trade show.) I was so inspired by all of the designs. I wish I could work on my greeting cards full time. I reconnected with my best friend from second grade (thank you facebook) and turns out she is also a designer. It was design week in NYC and I got to go to some really great furniture design after parties including one at the Design Within Reach store. I also met up with a friend from college who is now working in the giftware industry for a company who makes bedding and bath collections. She gave me some great insight.
