I’m in New York for the National Stationery Show, and it’s been an incredible past few days. The best part has been getting to meet some of the Color & Creativity Enthusiasts who created inspiration samples for my books.
Here’s a photo of me with Toni Popkin (and Bud!), Leitha Hunt & Jamie Torres in front of the big coloring wall in the lobby of the Javits Center. Leitha had a selfie stick, so we took a selfie, too!
What a pleasure and honor to finally meet some of the talented, caring women who bring my line work to life! I feel blessed that they were able to help get the coloring wall underway. Here’s a photo of Leitha as she tackled the feather, along with a close up of the color and patterns she added:
Lots of creative people have joined in the coloring fun:
Here’s a close up of a piece of the wall after the second day:
Everyone is welcome to come color– so if you are in the NY area this week, please join the coloring fun. 10-6 Tuesday, 10-2 Wednesday. I’ll be at the coloring wall from 11-12, so stop by and say hi!
I’ll post more photos from the show next week, but before closing tonight, I wanted to wish Valencia, who will be celebrating her birthday on the 22nd, a day filled with joy. Since Valencia’s favorite color is black, I went with a black/grey/white theme:
Hope you have a wonderful birthday Valencia!
