It's been a bit of a whirlwind planning session for the past few months. But me (and my husband-to-be, Chris) are getting ready for the National Stationery Show! Something I could never have imagined, but with the encouragement of my family I will be debuting Lydia & Pugs stationery and paper goods in May! One of the best things that has helped me to prepare was participating in Tradeshow Bootcamp with workshops and webinars put on by Katie Hunt of Kelp Designs. It's been an awesome community of "virtual" folks just like me who need some advice and guidance for trade shows. I am really looking forward to meeting some of them come May. The picture above is Chris building the booth for the show. I am so blessed to have a wonderful fiancé that is on board with all my crazy ideas and is so skilled in so many things! I will be making more posts about the show as it gets closer.
