The new line is finished. I had wanted to finish everything back in March, but the creative part took longer than expected. (shocking) Anyhow, it seemed appropriate to do a major refresh of the collection this year. I skipped the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) this winter to stay at home (in the studio) and make new work. It felt really good... maybe even therapeutic. Sometimes with production being at the forefront of a business, stepping back and doing what you love first, is hard to make time for. There were a few times that I felt totally lost in the process, but that's part of creating too. The only thing you can do is walk away and come back when it's ready to be done.
Someone recently sent me this link on TED. I found it to be really interesting... and i think it pertains to all creative people, not just writers.
