Did you guys know we have almost grown out of this new building? You know the one, we moved here back in June 2012 right before art fair. We have taken down walls, we’ve moved offices, we’ve even rented 2 storage units outside of our building. The poor Platinum girls have to drive across the street every time they need to restock these days! But at least we all get to work in the same building. Not sure how long we will get to say that! And actually I’ve been working at home on Fall 2014 lately…
(My dining room table ha!)
We have so many new members of the MJC team that I feel we should start highlighting these new key players! And heck, let’s talk about some of the oldies too (maybe I’ll do this next week?). After all, it takes us all to make this big wheel turn.
With that said…I’d like to introduce our new girl Maddie Tompkins to the round table..
Maddie, comes from a technical background at cinda B with design skills to spare. She’s been hired to assist our Yama (Sarah Pippenger) in the technical design/development side of the seasonal lines. You guys don’t even know how excited I am to have her here. Not only is she a nice positive, spunky chick, but she will be giving Yam the relief she needs from having ALL technical design on her plate. Because we all know that poor girl gets no help from me there 🙁 I’m so not good with numbers and details!! Except sparkly buttons and fun trims. I’m great at those details!
Last but not least. I’ve been without my other half for far too long these days… Denise came home from Texas on Thursday of last week and started her first chemo treatment in Fort Wayne on Monday (yesterday). I’m not sure how it went, but I do know she left exhausted. And drained. And fried. My poor boss, I have been dreading this phase of her new journey to start. She’s had the most positive spirit for 3 months, but now I think it’s beginning to get to her. Please please have her in your thoughts extra this week. I’m so happy she’s home, but I want her happy too. We all do.
Maybe next week I’ll write a love letter to her? You can never say you love someone too much right?
