2014 - What treasures will this year bring?

Friday, January 3, 2014

Happy New Year fellow hunters and gatherers.  You may have wondered where I have been these past two months.  Most of you know that I started my own design company a couple years ago.  (Has it really been that long - yes, it has.  I think I started I guess thinking about 2 years ago in January).  And, currently, I am the only employee which includes but is not limited to the following tasks:
  • Creative Director (my favorite one which is why I put it first)
  • CEO (whatever that means)
  • Founder (company still isn't incorporated, but my accountant doesn't seem to be worried, so neither am I)
  • Marketing Director
  • Social Media Director
  • Sewing Slave (I don't pay myself for sewing even though I spend most of time doing it)
  • Sweatshop Employee
  • Cutter
  • Sewer (ha! That can't be how you spell that)
  • Shipping Director
  • Customer Service Director (this doesn't mean that I am always kind, especially to banks)
  • Tech Director
  • Website Director
  • E-Commerce Director
Okay, I am going to stop there.  I'm not trying to complain, just thought it may explain why I haven't been on the beach in 2 months.  The weather also has something to do with that.  I hate cold weather.  I'm cold in 80 degree weather.  But, the weather in addition to all the cutting and sewing, kept me indoors.

Here is just a sample of the fabric I worked on this season:

They are beautiful.

My favorite recipient of a scarf this season.  Sorry, Mimi wins every time!
Isn't my Mimi the cutest thing you've ever seen?  I gave her the Scotch Bonnet Silk Scarf for Christmas, which is North Carolina's State Shell.  She loved it.  Not as much as I love her because that's impossible.  :)

It was a very successful season.  But, I will not be a one woman sweat shop ever again.  Help is on the way, along with very exciting things this year.  I'm getting married in March, and before that I am going shelling on Captiva Island with some of my best friends.  Yes, that what a hunter and gatherer does for her bachelorette; she plans a shelling trip.  I can't wait to share the treasures we find!

I hope you all have the Happiest Year ever filled with many blessings!
