We wanted to say thank you! to everyone who has blogged about us in the past couple of weeks.
Lloyd at Treehugger did an amazing post - and even recorded a short video that you can watch from their site - click here to watch and read the article. (photo credit treehugger).

First of all, I love this image and had to post it. High Street Cincinnati threw us a party on Friday night, in celebration of our first trip to ICFF. I think I have mentioned before that this is an amazing store - and how wonderful everyone who works there is.... You only get this kind of love in Ohio (drinks for all and no list). We had a great time, so much that we forgot to take photos of the four of us - too many cool people to meet. I did take a picture of a case that we set up...

Thanks to High Street for everything, and thank you to everyone who was able to attend.

Our booth - which turned out great. The floor was a hit - and really created an environment unlike any other in the show. Steven engineered some amazing furniture - a "couch" for us to sit on, and two butcher block tables/lamp poles that our lighting could hang from. We had a wonderful time, met SO many amazing people - and saw great work from all around the world.
With all that said, it is nice to be back home in Ohio sitting on our real couch.

Road Trip

We are off - taking a road trip to NYC at the end of the week to set up our booth for ICFF. (booth 1755 if you are going to be there too). The floor is ready - the furniture is almost done - and we are at least halfway packed and ready to go. We will post more images once we have everything installed and set up on site - exciting!

icff - the floor

We have been working for the last few days on the flooring for our booth next week. Steven laser cut a William Morris style stencil (see below)
And we used it to cover 100 sq. feet of foam anti-fatigue flooring. (we don't want to strain ourselves) It looks a crazy rug in rubber...

new cards

Our new business cards for ICFF - with our booth number 1755. We are feeling lucky - because in 1755 Marie Antoinette was born in Vienna and the first edition of A Dictionary of the English Language was written and published by Samuel Johnson. We have stacks and stacks of these- plus Rebecca is letterpressing some as well - more pictures of our ICFF progress soon.
