Yippee! Yet another trip to the lovely city of NY is planned for moi - it's time to meet with a manufacturer (or two!) to nail things down and begin production. Yup, it's happening folks. Production. Well, hold on, before you get all excited - this is a SMALL celebration - things are not all figured out yet. Some of the best words of wisdom I received (at the DG EXPO in Miami this past March), were "Start Small, do it RIGHT." That's become my mantra as of late, especially at times when I want it all to have happened yesterday, to have products out and selling already today, not this slow progress that is me taking small, shuffling steps as I move forward. Although I realize this is how great things begin - slowly and surely. So instead of looking to create an entire line at the beginning, or to design my own prints in large quantities for production ($$$$), I was advised by more experienced folk in the biz to KEEP IT SMALL at first. How small? That's TBD. Maybe two pieces, or six. I'm figuring things out as I shuffle forward. But right now, I'm celebrating that I've come this far (!!) and that I'm blessed to be involved in this amazing, huge, creative dream of mine.
