So Kate returned home today from the last trip to her Dad's workshop to finish up her wall for the National Stationery Show. She brought a couple of photos she snapped with her phone to show me their final preparations before the crate took off for New York City where it will await her in her booth. So exciting!
Painting the walls.
The crate stencil.
Kate's Dad cut some sheet metal for her magnet boards using one of her Great Grandpa's original tools. Made in Milwaukee. Super awesome.
So we shot our last redo photo this morning for the big NSS show coming up in less than a month. This time: AC is Santa Claus. Kate always liked the idea of this photo, but the first time through I wasn't really pumped about posing inside a chimney and didn't do that awesome of a job. This time she made sure to make my chimney only have 3 walls so I didn't feel as uncomfortable. And she did some updating to the background as well. All in all I think it's another successful improvement.
And with that I have been rewarded with some much needed time off! There are no plans for any more shoots in the near future as we got everything we wanted accomplished for NSS. Hurrah!
