What makes me happy

My new employee, Gigi, makes me happy.
For the past few days she has been organizing my space out in the workshop. Last night before she headed home, she left me a little surprise that I discovered this morning.

It actually stopped me in my tracks and I laughed out loud because she gets it. She just took some of the milk glass vases, a few wooden boxes, and just odds and ends sitting around in all areas of the shop and created this adorable little display. Goodness do I wish I had a brick-and-mortar shop so she could design the window displays!!

My new assistant has been organizing the studio and left me this cute little display last night. #organization #display

Once she helps me catch up on all my pre-packaging in anticipation of the holiday rush, I'm going to have her take all the different items in my shop and decorate packages and make little displays to photograph for the shop. It's been on my list of things to do for a loooong time, but there's never enough hours in the day. I am ecstatic just thinking about all the fun things she'll come up with.

In other news, those of you out there who were crossing your fingers that I made the final cut in the magazine I was working with, thank you! I just now filled out the final form from the fact checker. The issue will be on newstands November 19. I'll tell you more about it once the time gets closer, so you can get a copy if you don't already subscribe to it. :D!!


  1. Looks like you've found a winner in Gigi - yay! But don't sell your own picture taking/arranging abilities short. You know the pic of your black wrapping paper with turquoise embellishments? I posted it and then it was re-blogged by someone else as part of a collection of great gift wrapping ideas. So there! :)

  2. Everyone needs a Gigi in their life! :)
