Goings On

Well, it's pretty cold. Like 40 degrees in October cold. That's one thing. Also, I have a new item to share!

It's yet another note set. I had a hard time naming this one because the design is kind of abstract, and usually I'm dealing with very specific, recognizable objects- buttons, feathers, you know. This time around I was doodling and thinking about parasols and flowers and those paper rosettes you see used as party decorations, and this is what I ended up with. So Floral Burst Note Set it is.

And a funny thing about the color: they're printed in a deep orange color which I would describe as burnt orange. And apparently, according to Wikipedia, this shade "ranks in the bottom 10% of preferred colors according to a Newsweek poll." Yikes. That's pretty bad! Have I made a mistake here? We'll find out, I guess. But for now I'm sticking to my guns.

I should also mention that the trunk show at Topaz in Cambridge that was planned to happen last week on October 9th was postponed and is now set for November 13th, from 6-9pm. I also should have probably mentioned this before October 9th. But I didn't. Sorry! The trunk show is actually part of an event called An Autumn Affair in Harvard Square, which also includes some other boutiques and restaurants in the neighborhood. Here's the flyer:

A classy crawl, of sorts. I will not be crawling, though, as I'll be stationed with my goods at Topaz, along with jewelry designers Amy Casher and Sara Danielle Designs. If you're in the area come on down. There'll be snacks!

And my last piece of business! As we speak there is a box full of goodies on its way down to Young Blood Gallery and Boutique in Atlanta, Georgia. They'll be carrying some of my note sets, notepads, and notebooks. So what that means is that in just a few days you can buy The Paper Apartment goods in Atlanta. Hooray!
