Enamel Cups & Me
I am not the earliest of risers but love it when uber talented Rick & his boss Jeff bring the newest floral installation. That and a Starbucks rock my day!
I could go on and on and on -- about so many design and tech talents, including Evan & Danny (and the rest of my other Geeks at Insite) who respond immediately to my panicked messages in the middle of the night or help in a non-web project (Hint: bag); Candace who makes house calls to go over ads; designers' staffers who are now friends and make me look good (Melanie, Meegan, Dana, Gretchen, Jackie, Melissa, Michele, Naomi, et al); my Twitter and Facebook friends who keep me connected even though my family grumbles; a new set of talents in Colorado who are working on the most incredible project to be launched in November; and most of all, the many friends I have made along the way.
But wait! There's more! We look forward to visits from Cheryl Finnegan (aka "Finn", designer of Virgins, Saints & Angels) in her first ever trunk show visit in the United States; Todd Reed (master of rough cut and mogul diamonds and such a nice guy!); and my friend Cathy Waterman who makes holiday happen with a special appearance in December.
From Arkansas to Cincinnati to New York, from soap bars at Procter & Gamble to being one of the "Mad Women" in advertising on Madison Avenue in the '80's, working with some of the top creative minds on the planet, and then moving with Charles 25 years ago to Dallas and my cozy spot at Ylang 23. There's no place like retailing for me.
