Paper Mama is the Belle of the Ball

I know sometimes moms, teachers, camp counselors or anyone else who deals with kids often go to great lengths to ensure they do not show any favortism toward one child over another.

I'm not a mom, have never been a teacher, and gave up my camp counselor days when I was 18, but I struggle with this a lot in terms of who gets my love: Paper Bride or Paper Mama. But today, there is no struggle: it's all about Paper Mama.

My partner and I are throwing a fab Editor's tea today at HTwo at Saks to launch our Paper Mama line. Yes, I realize that its July, so we will be having iced tea, but you get the point.

I was up half the night preparing our new Tip Kits, and am now camped out in our building's mailroom awaiting an early shipment of our new catalogs from overseas. Oh yeah, and I need to get a manicure pronto, run out to kinkos to get copies made, have my hair blown out, buy extra ribbon, finish packing up my suitcase of supplies and pray that I don't immediately sweat through my dress within the first 10 minutes (I may need some group prayer for that one). Also crossing all fingers and toes that the predicted NYC thunderstorms don't end up thundering.

BUT...we have some awesome gift bags, thanks to donations from some pretty talented ladies and an AMAZING list of RSVP's, so I'm hoping that we seriously rock it out today. Are you wishing me cyber luck?
