More Nectar for my Soul !


Taking advice from many advisors to celebrate one's achievements...
The Passages Of Time 
as 
we wander along our pathways & roads....
bumpy & smooth...
We have milestones.... 
how far we have come & where we are heading...

Now where would that be ????  I ask myself ....Where are you heading ???? LOL
These are the stores that will continue to sell my buttons & decorations.....and the 3 Designers ...
&
Moi ....
When I suggested they might like to  continue on....the responses were that nectar for my soul....

Designers who use my buttons in their designs that continue to have the same as the stores are

I am excited about this change... this little path off that main road  in my journey in design...

From cloth dolls..santas etc 
to
stitcheries...
.brooches...
buttons...
painted wood decorations...
quilts...that odd one or 2...
applique....
books.....
 with distributers both in Australia & Internationally... doing major shows.... small shows.....trunk shows.....magazines in Australia & France
Mail order in the old sense & later the web site store.....
wholesale always....
Now wholesale to a few...
As the world changes... & life changes ....
our way of doing business can change too...
&
To the lady who gave me an opportunity to think differently....& bring not a sense of ending to this part of my life but a new beginning....
