Shedding Some Light on the New Year


2010 was a rough year for many of us and I for one am really looking forward to 2011 and the chance to start fresh!


The New Year brings with it for me opportunities to design new products and work with new partners.


I’m working hard finishing up my next two books and my Bedding modules for Studio.


I plan to spend more quality time with my kids and my terrific husband.


I resolve to get more exercise, keep up my healthy eating and try to age gracefully for another year.


I plan to really try to enjoy every day to its fullest and not dwell on negativity.


I hope you all find your key to happiness and joy in 2011! CHEERS `:)’

Your lampshades are darling, by the way -- is there a JVT Design Directory of Fabric Accessories in your future?

Happy New Year, girlfriend!
