Time is flying and there is still so much to do. So much. I really want this to be a great season. My girls at 435 have been busily counting inventory and rearranging to get ready for the season. We’ve gone over all scenario’s in hopes to improve our ship time. We’ve got new packers coming in, and Chris even learned to ship UPS. She is so dang cute sitting in the chair shipping.
I know none of you have really been to 435 when it is in full swing but if you’ve seen photos you would know we run in real tight quarters. And this season we have pretty much maxed out the upstairs and downstairs. It is crazy but as long as we keep it super organized we’ll be good. We’re in the process of moving Platinum upstairs to make more room for packing tables and in return, we are going to be able to keep Platinum a little more organized and full. We have been cutting like crazy cuz once February hits our cutting table gets used for sorting!
So many things are going on at 435. I kinda feel like we are growing up a bit. Today, I was ironing and looked up to see Kiera taking photos of flats for for the site, Sam working on Fall 2011 samples and Michelle working on the Platinum schedule. I was like “Wow, I really have my own Creative Team”. It was so cool. Yes, I am a dork. But you see, Lynette and Kayla have their Office Team and Kacey and Chris have their 435 Crew. Now I have my own gang!!!
Oh, and I know many of you are waiting for details for 435 Art Fair but it’ll be February before we can really lay them out. You can count on a Pre-Party Friday night (with kids), Art Fair Saturday and party at my house Saturday evening (no kids). It is always such a good time. We love meeting all of you guys and it is so fun watching you all meet each other. It really has become one big family of friends. I love it.
Now I must head up to sew some more buttons. I admit I like to sew them. It is a great excuse to lay in bed and watch a movie.
Oh, and did I tell you we have my favorite adult line EVER. And so much that you could totally just have Trunk Show just for you Hip Crowd of Ladies!
