First, I started out the day bright and early with 2 essential things for stationery show survival: caffeine and flat shoes.
From retailers to the media, the booth was crowded throughout the day. One of the highlights was the visit from the Martha Stewart Weddings team. These stylemakers know their stationery!

Wedding magic is definitely in the air at the stationery show, but there's another brand of magic that is also making a big impression at the Crane booth...
Crane and Disney have partnered to create the Walt Disney Signature line of stationery - paper celebrating Walt's own vision and creative spirit.
From my first movie theatre experience (Snow White) to my first spin on Alice's wild teacups at Disney World at age 4, Disney has provided me with the fondest of childhood memories. Needless to say, it has been a thrill to be involved in the partnership between Crane & Walt Disney.
After the show the Crane Insider and I headed over to the Mandarin Oriental for the official launch party of the Walt Disney Signature stationery collection.

The collection includes stationery, as well as beautiful journals by Eccolo and pens by Monteverde.
It was great fun to meet all partners involved in the project at the launch party. And after a full day inside the Javits Center, we enjoyed quite a view...
