of mice, men, and fabric designers, often go astray. Or, better yet, get led astray by enthusiastic fabric companies that decide, at the last minute, to change a launch date.
Good news? Ruby Star is still rising. Not our fav news? We won't rise until October, at the Houston Mart, instead of this month, in Minneapolis.
Con? We're disappointed, just a wee bit, and jonesin to get out there. Pro? We've been told that three other big names are releasing lines in May, so Ruby Star will have much more limelight to herself in October. We're sure she'll sparkle.
In other areas, our little blog has been neglected a bit lately because Melody has been fast and furious on working up her second line, geared a bit towards the younger men in our lives, like our three year olds. But it will not exclusively be all about the tots, there will be some great stuff for upholstery, table cloths, pillows, and things we've yet to imagine.
If you've not heard of or read Gretchin Rubin's The Happiness Project, you might like it. Melody certainly does. I'm waiting to borrow it (hurry up!). According to Gretchin, and Ruby, anticipation can be very good. In fact, here's a little thought from her site.
Anticipation is a key stage; by having something to look forward to, no matter what your circumstances, you bring happiness into your life well before the event actually takes place. In fact, sometimes the happiness in anticipation is greater than the happiness actually experienced in the moment...
We certainly don't anticipate being anything but thrilled with our launch, and hope that those of you who've been so warm and welcoming are also pleased. But until then, thank you for being a part of the part of this that is called anticipation, and that puts a little verve in our days.
