Hello temp-tationistas – hope you are surviving this crazy weather that everyone seems to blessed with – I can’t believe how much snow there is and ice keeps melting onto my front steps and I have to keep putting more salt down so no one falls…ah the joys of winter I guess – I actually do enjoy how beautiful everything looks once the snow comes but after it sits around awhile and turns dirty, I am over it!
My birthday was the 1st – yes I am an aquarian – true definition pretty much…had such a nice time, mom came down for the week and we got together with various friends from down here mostly from the Q of course, and they spoiled me rotten. Last night I was surprised with a fabulous dinner in Philly arranged by my dear friend Deana. 8 of us had a great dinner then headed bowling at one of those swanky places with the couches and cool shoes – good food, great times and amazing friends – I am for sure blessed. This Feb 11th will be 1 year since I lost my dad – mom, family and I are all going through the motions and managing the emotions…about 12 of us will go out to dinner at his favorite restaurant, the one we went to every single Saturday night for most of my childhood and where I was a hostess for about a year when I was 17, to reminisce and celebrate truly a wonderful life of a very special man…
So on a fun note – I have been designing like crazy – not sure if I mentioned but my next product presentation will be in April for items in the Fall and Spring – so keep your suggestions coming. very exciting and I have been working on some really great concepts. I have gone crazy on the whole figural animal thing – I just think this line is so adorable…Glad everyone is enjoying the travel mugs – I absolutely love them – seems some customers thought these were like those silver travel mugs that help keep things cold for 8 hours – these are great double walled stoneware tumblers that by nature help keep hot/hot and cold/cold but these also look fabulous on your table. Just finished up the Christmas in July collection for 2011 (um adorable) and looking forward to my hour shows on 2/8 at 10pm EST (think polka dot microfiber towels and chicken measuring spoons) and Lisa will cover the 5am on 2/9…really looking forward to the Today Special Value at the end of March – so excited I am bursting!!
Working on my facebook page finally with Matt’s help of course – can’t wait to join the temp-tationista annoymous group 😉 and be able to talk to you all a bit more in real time instead of just blogging… see you soon! T
