Ginormous thanks to Amy for putting these posts together this week! I've loved seeing the Stationery Show through her lens. And if you aren't already a mega fan of Old Sweet Song, I urge you to go get lost in Amy's blog this very moment; I promise you won't regret it. I leave you with this classic photo of Amy and me from January. Long live #amyface!

Hello lovely Crow & Canary readers/general appreciators of awesome paper-y goodness. It's your new friend Amy from Old Sweet Song. When Carina asked me if I'd like to attend the National Stationery Show as her press person and then blog about it for her, I jumped at the chance. As a lifelong lover of all things pretty and paper, this was kind of a dream assignment for me.

I had the best time wandering the aisles of the Javits Center, getting lost among all the gorgeous (and admittedly sometimes not so gorgeous) paper and chatting with all the nice people at the various booths. There was an insane amount of wonderful things on display at NSS. This week I'm gonna share some of my favorite things that I saw. To make it easy, I've divided things up into silly little categories, because who doesn't love silly little categories?

I'm in awe of all the talent and loveliness I encountered. A big thank you to Carina for having me along for all the fun. And come say hi to me over at Old Sweet Song.

I'm pleased to report that Crow and Canary's debut at the National Stationery Show was a smashing success, so much so that I didn't get a moment away from my own booth that didn't include eating a frenzied lunch or visiting the washroom. A wonderful dilemma to have, but I must admit that I'm still in mourning that I wasn't able to walk the show a bit. Luckily, I've been able to live vicariously through some other great blogger's coverage - that helps ease the sting a bit. 

On the bright side, my lovely friend Amy of Old Sweet Song will be back next week with her NSS coverage. I was so very fortunate to have her as a C&C correspondent at the Javits. So, five more days of paper geekery headed your way, sweet readers.
