Friends, today is my first day back in the office after an exciting week spent in New York and it still hasn’t quite sunk in that the Chalk Lettering Tool Kit was the winner of the best new product award at National Stationery Show! It won TWO awards including overall “best of show” and best new product in “Craft it up/DIY”. WHAT!?

The below photo perfectly sums up our emotion and surprise. I love that the National Stationery Show captured this very real and raw moment for their website (and I can’t stop giggling at Mak’s expression.)

Chalk Lettering Tool Kit Wins Best New Product Award At National Stationery Show

The Backstory

The Chalk Lettering Tool Kit is something I’ve been wanting to offer for a long time. After The Complete Book of Chalk Lettering was released, I received so many questions about the products I use and where they could be found. It’s taken me a few years to really hone in on my favorite supplies and now I’m thrilled to be able to share them with you.

I wanted the kit to include EVERYTHING that you need, even down to cotton swabs tied with a cute, little pink twine bow. Now, when I’m drawing chalkboard projects, especially signage at the Lily & Val Flagship Store, I just grab my tool kit, knowing my supplies are together in one place. So convenient!
