The fabulous Thom Felicia and I in New York at a Withit presentation
I have really had a crazy year so far in 2010 with what seems to be non-stop travel and work. I love it but after my recent trip to New York I have felt particularly burnt out! Hence my lack of posting – sorry.

I was in New York for several events. First was the Surtex show which is a tradeshow for surface and textile designers. It is run in conjunction with the Stationary show which is huge and full of talent! Second was the ICFF show – The International Contemporary Furnishings Fair, and it was great. So much fun new product and innovation! Very inspirational.

I met my sister Valorie and my daughter Angelica in New York and they went to some of the great events around town with me. A highlight was the opening night party for ICFF which was held in the outdoor atrium and sculpture gallery. It was a fun and lively event attended by a great group of creative people. We had a great time.

Also going on in town that week was the Withit design tour. Withit stands for Women in the Home Furnishings Industry Today and it is a fabulous group of entrepreneurial women who have made their mark in our industry. From company CEO’s to authors and designers the group is filled with women who are making a difference in their perspective fields. I was absolutely energized by all of them and can’t wait to meet more members.

I’m off to Laguna Beach this weekend with my hubby for some badly needed R & R and then it’s back home and back to work.
Hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend and take time to relax and revitalize! See you next week.
