I was the invited guest of Lifestyle Crafts out of Orem, Utah. I walked the floor a bit, got creeped out by artists trying to sell their personal lines of greeting cards and made nervous by vendors who started talking serious shop to me because they saw I was an "Exhibitor."
So I went over to "my" booth to see what it was that I made and met up with Lifestyle's Director of Marketing, Laura.
She showed off their line of products,
And fellow Lifestyler Kylie gave me a demo of their/our letterpressing and die cutting machines. Here she lays out the cut for a cupcake crown . . .
Et voila, cupcake crown!
Lifestyle Crafts seems like a great business with a great line of products that I can see crafty types just eating up and I'm proud to be associated with it. I bet these people all wind up millionaires if they aren't already.
The National Stationery Show runs through Thursday but I don't think you can go to it if you aren't in the business. But if you want to go real bad I bet that can be arranged.
