As promised here is what was sitting on my doorstep the day I was headed out to NYC for Stationery and Surtex, my new fabric that will be in Jo-Ann's. I love this penquin design I did for last years Surtex show and the coordinate. I had hoped that Jo-Ann's would take more designs but I will take what I can get these days.
Unlike the stationery world in fabric design the manufacturers only like to work with one person. I find this very difficult when you have a couple of looks. I do not understand why I cannot have a manufacturer that does my more commercial look like this one here and another that does my more quilt market look. I am hoping this undustry will change as all the others have. It makes no sense to me if they have 2 totally different looks why this is a problem, so I am thinking of having a surname for my more commercial look.
These days my head is spinning designing new work for many new manufacturers that I met at the Stationery Show as well as my regular clients. I tell you in this business when it rains it pours and sometimes that can lead to overload and in my case this is true. I never seem to have a smooth steady stream of work it always comes in spurts of chaos. Oh well such is the life of a manic artist.
Yes if you read my log time on this post you will see its 1:24 am here! I had taken a little nap when I put the little guy to bed and then woke up at midnight so now that I am up I figured this was a great time to post!
I have always been a night owl and I think that will never change, I can remember my dad yelling at me to get ready for school and luckily I had a uniform that I could get ready in an instant because you see I am NOT a morning person. I just do not get it, what is soo great about waking up early, I LOVE the night!!
Tonight I will be going out with my sister-in-law to see Sex and the City!! I cannot wait, this was my all time favorite show and I missed it soo much. I think I have seen every episode at least 3 times!! I love all the clothes and banter these gals have, and it reminds me of my past when I worked in NYC and hung out with my girlfriends. I also dated someone similar to the character Big so I have a fondness for him and unlike this character my Big could not commit!!
Okay enough ramblings for one day maybe now I should get my but to bed! Have a great weekend everyone!!
