The other evening I was on twitter and someone asked if I had I seen our products featured in 'Your Home' Magazine (January edition) - to which I replied a simple NO! I've always thought it odd that magazines don't let you know - or the company you sell with don't inform you either. She went on to say it was a lovely picture on page 8, so I thanked her and added the magazine to my shopping list. So the first thing I did the following morning was rush to get myself a copy and what a lovely picture it was too! It still makes me puff up with pride when I see something I have created in print.
So that moves me nicely on to the proofs I received from the printers. Again, it always feels slightly different seeing them in print format from my original paper copies.
All these designs will be available in the new year - there are 12 new designs in total - something for every occasion! I am really pleased with the whole collection.
We have also received 4 press requests this week, all obviously looking for copy for the New Year/ Season editions. It's all very exciting. I'm already starting to design and think about my 2011 July launch products - I don't want to put myself under so much panic and stress as I have been doing of late - designing as the deadline approaches. It's a little early to start writing New Year's resolutions yet but that will feature when I do! When or really I should write if, I have a spare moment, it will be filled with designing.
