We're Moving! Upstairs.

Starting as early as Friday, Linda & Harriett will have a new home - right above the office I currently work out of now. 390 Dean Street will still be home to Linda & Harriett - and home to me, John and Kingsley - but now we'll have a whole floor of studio space. Ahh, space in the city. I cannot wait. I'll post pictures this weekend once I've done some moving. Two desks... too good to be true!

Coming Soon to a City Near You!

Our packaged note cards on display at the National Stationery Show in NYC

It was a great first year at the show for Linda & Harriett! We launched our note card line and are happy to say we'll be coming to a city near you very very soon. Thanks to a successful show, we're heading back into the studio to work, work, work! It is our hope to add several new designs in the next six weeks. We're thinking of all things fall - hints of pumpkin patches & pumpkin pies, apple picking & picnicing, and of course the fall foliage & falling leaves. Email us at to get added to our mailing list or to simply let us know what you think.

Day 3 of 4

Here's my booth! #2054

I'm writing this at 9:30pm, about 5 minutes before I go collapse in bed as I have for the past three nights. I'm exhausted from the show - but it's well worth it. I'm getting good feedback on my designs and my booth display. Linda & Harriett... coming to a city near you!

Kitchen Hutch & Chocolate Chip Cookies

More National Stationery Show preparations today....

I pick up some furniture I am renting for my booth. The piece I am most excited about is the kitchen hutch - something I was introduced to by my friend Katie who loves these things. And now I love them too. I am planning on showing my note cards in there next to some china and platter pieces - some from my mom, some from my wedding registry. I am really looking forward to seeing how it all looks together.

Baking is also on the list of things to do today - chocolate chip cookies - and as many as I can bake is the goal. My sister Katie and my husband John are my go-to bakers this week. We're giving these away at the show - just a sweet little hello from Linda & Harriett.

Gearing up for the National Stationery Show

It's 5 days away - Sunday May 20th - the day I officially launch my company Linda & Harriett to the world - or at least the paper people world. It's the National Stationery Show, and it's the largest trade show of its kind. I have a little booth in a very big place, but it's my very own, filled with my very own designs - which I am proud and happy to say, I really love.

This is my first blog - never blogged before. So please be patient as I give this a try...
