I'm going to be honest about what's been going on with me lately - probably for the past 5 or 6 months...and tell you that I have been trying to get back to what excites me in terms of working with design, pattern design, and generating ideas and products in general. I feel really great about much of what I have accomplished over the past couple of years. But lately, I have also been yearning to reacquaint with the spirit that made me want to start my collection to begin with, and to begin to bring in some of my more recent influences and ideas.
Like Alice in Wonderland said..."I knew who I was this morning, but I've changed several times since then!"
That being said, I am hoping that come spring, when I debut new product at NSS, I will have edited things a bit and will have some smart yet still interesting and thought-provoking changes to show for it. Hopefully, it won't be met with "What happened to your collection????". But with "Oh. Wow." Anyway, I suppose one really shouldn't work anticipating response. One should work, as I've always thought, to create what one wants to see in the world.
Some examples of what I'd like to see in the world, I suppose, are up here, by no means all of them...this is just what i have on my desktop this morning. I'm still knee deep in the editing and designing phase. So don't get too attached. Haha. ; )
