The little Paperie Show

My little Paperie show and Gym's book signing went very well last sunday.
It was a happy event as it usually is at the Sandpit Club.

It started at 5pm and ended with a party at 2am.
On arrival, guests were offered mulled wine and beautiful exotic food.

And the only thing I can lament is that I never really had time to take pictures.
Before setting up my table, I was busy with the girl's team, Gym, Ellie and little Nina.
We had 2 hours to finish decorating the superb food Ellie had prepared.
A little bit after 5, our first visitor came and I was very happy to welcome a reader of the blog, Daizie,
whom I was meeting for the first time. So exciting !

Ma petite présentation de papeterie combinée à la signature du livre de Gym, dimanche dernier a été un petit succès.
C'était une soirée très agréable comme toujours au Sandpit Club.

Les invités étaient accueillis avec un verre de vin chaud et des canapés exotiques.
Nous avons commencé à 17h et la soirée s'est terminée à 2h du mat.

La seule chose que je regrette est de n'avoir jamais eu le temps de prendre des photos.
Avant de préparer ma table, je me suis affairée avec l'équipe des filles, Gym, Ellie et la petite Nina.
Il nous restait 2 heures chrono pour finir de décorer le superbe buffet préparé par Ellie.
Un peu après 17h, notre première invitée est arrivée et j'étais ravie de rencontrer Daizie,
une lectrice du blog. Très chouette !

I placed a panel with clippings of my work in the French press and the Spanish Holà (for one of my handbags).
And most of my buyers asked me why on earth I stopped designing handbags.
Which actually made me ponder why not carrying on both things : paperie and handbags.
I'll let you know !

J'avais placé un panneau avec des photos de mes créations dans la presse française et le Holà espagnol (pour un de mes sacs).
Et la plupart de mes acheteurs m'ont demandé pourquoi j'avais arrêté de créer des sacs.
Du coup, moi aussi je me dis que c'est un peu idiot et que je ferais mieux de continuer et la papeterie et les sacs.
Je vous tiendrai au courant !

Next thursday, I will present you Gym's book, Zigzag, Flashbacks of a Painter
which I so enjoyed reading these past few days.

Jeudi prochain, je vous parlerai du livre de Gym, Zigzag, Flashbacks of a Painter,
que j'ai lu avec beaucoup de plaisir ces derniers jours.

Paper + handbags would be a natural
for you, Lala !
Did you ever see the cutouts for constructing faux paper
Kelly bags on the Hermes website ?
Great fun -
