It’s been a crazy busy time, and I must admit, I’m barely keeping pace. Facebook and Twitter have become useful places to maintain updates what’s going on, but if you (like me) are not a big fan of the Facebook scene, this blog may give the impression of serene equinimaty, which is certainly not the case. So, just as a bit of a catchup, here is what’s been going down lately:
Hot on the heels of the Flower Dreams launch, Skinny laMinx and Space for Life were collaborating again, this time on a stand at Decorex Cape Town, for which we were given 10 days’ notice. We put together an marvellously Mad Men-esque main bedroom setting, with my fabrics and the vintage Scandinavian furniture in perfect harmony. More pics here. Decorex just closed on Sunday, and I have to say, we put together a damn fine stand. High five, us!
I don’t know which planets have to align in order to get features in three major national publications within three days, but that’s what happened to me last week. First there was a cover story in the Leefstyle section of Die Burger newspaper, then our home got a double page spread in this week’s issue of YOU/Huisgenoot, and on Sunday, Skinny laMinx was included in a story about Homegrown Talent Goes Global in the Sunday Times. Yowza!
What else? Oh yes, I’m working on an animation project (with a professional this time), I’m making a new wholesale catalogue to send out in May, and am also in the midst of another renovation. My downstairs studio is soooo busy and disrupted, I’m really battling to work, so I’ve been renovating the upstairs space to sublet and move in this month. No pics to show yet, but I hope it’s going to look beautiful soon!
