Above is a page from my sketchbook during this weekend's NESCBWI Conference in Nashua, NH.
Overall it was a good event. There are always ups and downs to these events and it changes with each year. I was happy to see friends, attend 2 good workshops, have a portfolio critique, and participate in the First Look part of the day. I will have to write all my juicy tidbits later in the week. I'm doing my last preparations for Surtex and National Stationery Show. I leave on the first train out of Boston tomorrow which means I'll be up well before dawn. I'm hopeful that the show is positive for me and that I can give away most/all of the samples I've been laboring over! Wish me luck and I'll be reporting back here on Wednesday.
