a quick hello + happy weekend…


I am back from the Stationery Show…and will be taking the next few days to catch up on much needed sleep! Just wanted to say hello and post a few pics for you all. My photos are not that great as I was too overwhelmed with the launch that I simply forgot to take more. Here are a few photos of our Relish booth, as well as some detail shots from my own Nantaka Joy line. A HUGE thanks to the fellow bloggers who have posted such lovely pics and words about the launch (D*S has great pics of the entire show)…and also a big thanks to those of you who came by to say hello and show your support. You’ll be seeing
Nantaka Joy products in stores very soon ;). For now, I am off to enjoy the long weekend…have a great holiday! -Joy

{A couple answers to your questions… I had the little chair made by a local architectural designer based on this actual full-sized chair which I own. I gocco’ed my pattern onto fabric with fabric ink and then did a mini upholstery job for the cushions! As for availability of my new line, I’ll post a list of shops once all of my current orders are fulfilled and will definitely keep you all posted when I am up-and-running on my own site for e-commerce. Thanks for your interest & support!}
