Last night I attended this month's Boston Design Salon meeting for female design entrepreneurs in the Boston area. What a great group, I highly encourage any female designers in Boston to check out an upcoming meeting (info on how to get on the email list here). Last night's event was hosted by a store owner in the South End who talked about the process of setting up shop. I chatted with several stationery designers making plans to show at the National Stationery Show in NY. I think I may try to visit the show as an attendee, no way I'm ready to exhibit my own stuff yet.
The big news today is that I got my screens! Matt worked from home today so that he could help me pick up the screens (also he really wanted to see me drive). Not only did I drive for the first time in four years, I also had to parallel park for the first time ever! We made it there and back without incident and Zipcar was a lifesaver. The screens look amazing. Hemlock Ink did a great job and had great customer service, I would highly recommend them if you're local. I'm awaiting my delivery of paper later on this afternoon then I can get printing! I've got three 30 x 40 screens for my designs, three 30 x 40 screens for Black Pearl Press, and 2 small screens for gift tags (my designs).
