The sun is shining here in Brooklyn today - it feels like such a true reflection of how I feel this afternoon in February sitting in my studio: happy, shining, and filled with energy.

I have had a most wonderful start to the year, working on some exciting new projects and collaborations, meeting some real fun people and having crazy good experiences that helps keep the creativity flowing.

My second fabric collection is taking shape, I am having fun as well as being challenged to make a collection that is in harmony color and design wise. Sort of like solving a puzzle. I am putting together ideas and colors for a collection of porcelain pieces, hopefully due out this fall. I will keep you posted on that one. New stationery designs and products are on the way to all the Target stores in America. Wooah.. this is exciting...images and more information on the way.

I travelled to Palm Springs,CA where I was invited to teach a stencil workshop with the creative Heather Ross. I met some real brilliant people that made me laugh a lot and that is something I truly treasure. We also experienced an unexpected storm that tore through and created a stir, a blackout and an evacuation..and chaos (which I thrive in)!

I have a collection of wall decals out on the market right now. One of them "Strim" is available right now at a most excellent price at Urban Outfitters.

I had a visit in the studio shop from a journalist and photographer, the very talented Pontus Hook from Sweden. Together we created a feature for "Dagens Industri" which is Sweden's Business Daily. The feature is running this weekend and I am tickled..I hope I make my high school economics teacher proud.

Christies, the very prestigious auction house, asked me to be their arbitrator of style this month, which I gladly and with honor accepted. The result is here.

I also, once again, got the opportunity to work with the creative team at Design Sponge. Photographer Jenny Hallengren, whom I met when I was 10 years old and is one of my very closest friends, took the beautiful photos... I love working with her! The result is here.

And, we added some new items in the shop; new masking tape and some cards and more of that popular yellow fabric called Florine Brass Mesh (very hard to keep in stock). Please find them in our shop. We ship in usa for one flat fee and are happy to help you with your international order.

Well, I think that will do it ..I am off to a delightful weekend with my three boys: my boy, my husband and fat cat Webster.

best wishes
