I'm back from the tradeshow mayhem. Now we are snowed in with a freak snow storm this week. It's actually been nice to bundle up inside and sled down our street with the kiddos. Thanks to the snow I am also missing this weeks PLAY retreat up in Port Townsend. It's Teesha's new brain child. Three full days of self directed art making. Have to do that at home I suppose. Like all of you I'm sure it's definitely been busy. Kathleen has officially moved to town and joined us in the studio! WooHoo. Though her cute little Mini Cooper can't even make it out of the driveway. Poor thing. But we are already zooming away on tons of new products and designs. I can't tell you what a relief it is to actually have a team now and not be working all alone on so many things. I think you can expect super things from us this year! And I had to share my wooden deer head with all of you. It hangs over my desk- and even though I haven't found the right accessories for him yet I just love him. But you should here the comments I get around here about him. But we don't care. Nothing can break our love.
