surtex begins today!

today is the day!

one i have spent the last 6 months preparing for.

all my many hours poured into creating
and designing collection sheets to
be presented at Surtex in New York city.
(i even sent some of my sculptures) 

MHS Licensing will be introducing my work
to the surface design industry.
(booth 535)

it will be my debut.
i can't tell you how over the moon i am about this.
how humble i am to be a part of this show,
to be represented and to be amongst so much talent.
i could just pinch myself!

i plan to embrace and enjoy this moment.
to celebrate how far i have come,
the long hours, the ups and downs
but mostly that this is one step closer to my dream.
i know the real work is still yet to come
and there will be another mountain to climb. 
but for now, 
i will celebrate!
