I had to post this and thank Apartment Therapy's Marketplace + Sarah Coffey for selecting me: Textile Designers: 10 Women to Watch. I am shocked and honored and can't believe I am on the same page as these other amazing women! Thank you thank you so so much! Please click the link above and check out these other designers that are changing the textile world.
I showed Breshia (my 6 year old) this little post and tried to explain the significance to her...explaining that now more then ever this dream of mine is coming around to something that could possible change our lives forever--that just maybe my little pillows have a voice. I know very dramatic---but everyone that makes anything-no matter what it is, has a distinct opportunity to say SOMETHING--could be anything. I want my prints to make people smile and feel connected...every imperfection and drawn element--collaged together...I want them to feel relevant and bring something in a home that needs to be there--something that was missing before?
Anyway, enough ramblings..gotta get B ready for school--just a serious heart felt thank you for selecting me..it just pushes me to continue what I have been dreaming up for so long--just gives more solid ground and confirmation that I am not totally out of my mind!
Thank you so much. e
