Start spreading the news …

Well I don’t go to Surtex, but my designs are and that is kind a same thing :)!!! It was hard keeping a secret but I really didn’t know if I would manage to do all the job and uploaded designs and mock-ups in such short period of time.

In the middle of April I was invited from A Fresh Bunch  , licensing agency from Illinois to join their artists. And yes – I could prepare my designs for Surtex as long as I could manage the due date – May 1st. The decision had to be quick, so I sent them quick YES reply and start working. The portfolio is little smaller than I would like to have it, but MY DESIGNS ARE GOING TO BE AT SURTEX! And that is coooool. Here’s a sneak peak of Elegant Xmas collection.

So, a tons of work is behind of me. What do I see infront of me? A tons of work too!!! I have to work on my logo and on new ideas. The Pattern Design course with lovely Rachel Taylor  has started and I am way behind.

Despite of anything I need a break :). Our wedding anniversary is right at the door and we decided to take 2 precious day off. Yes! So – my friends – tomorrow I will be here with my love, sourrounded with moutains and I am sure we’ll climb one.

I can't wait to see this view.

I can't wait to see this view.

The life is good and little easier right now.

    Po dolgem času spet na tvojem blogu… super “novica” tole, kako se je pa izšlo na Surtexu?
    Držim pesti, ker pa je pa zadnja objava na blogu poletna, se je očitno izšlo super in imaš obilo dela.
