paper, ribbons, twine

Now that the Poppytalk show is up I feel like I can reflect a little on the Design Salon show I did this past weekend. The show was great and the best part were the wonderful contacts I made with other designers there. Angela Liguori and I were the first people to set up our tables and were immediately drawn to one another's things. I couldn't stop looking at her lovely collection, and came home with a beautiful notebook, a roll of Italian ribbon with my initial on it (can't wait to sew this onto something special) and a ball of twine. Angela is a book binder and designer who gives workshops, has an etsy shop, and produces beautiful things. She comes from Rome and has written an excellent travel guide to the city on Design Sponge. Get out your passports! She was also kind enough to do a little post about me on her blog. Thank you, Angela! If you live in Cambridge or Somerville, she'll be at the Paper and Chocolate show on December 6th. I can always use more paper and more chocolate. Maybe I'll see you there?

Jill, I can not dance.
Latin Americans usually dance very well, but not this girl not her husband!
