I love Melody. She is first and foremost one of the sweetest individuals on the planet. On top of that she is a brilliant designer. You probably already know that I sew with her fabrics frequently. I love the funky retro vintage-inspired vibe they have (the Ruby Star Washi dress was the most recent example of this). I’m even more thrilled with her newest line, Ruby Star Sparkle, which features prints that literally…wait for it…GLITTER. I know.

There was a lovely collection of vintage toys strewn around the booth, many of them Fisher Price (LOVE!).

Also featured in the booth was Melody’s new book which I really really like, Ruby Star Wrapping which was co-written with creative partner Allison Tannery. Before I read it I thought, how many ways can you really wrap a present? Well it’s alot more than you’d think, let me tell you. The book is full of neat ideas that truly make me want to go and try them all out this Christmas. The fact that the main premise is to create wrappings that are also reusable, gifts in and of themselves, makes me love it even more. You can read the cool things that Melody has to say about the book in this post. Totally recommend!!

    Man I wish I was there!!! Actually, I probably should never meet Melody in real life. I’d probably have a freak out and embarrass everyone haha! She’s so amazing.
