The past few years have flown by and I continue to enjoy what I am doing. It seems like just a year or two ago that I started creating quilting fabric collections and now they are my mainstay, yet I have also enjoyed creating giftware and other home decor accent products for some new manufactures.

I am honored to now have Alicia Dauber representing me with her other talented artists of Licensing Liaison. We are in the first year of our relationship, and I have found it to be so helpful to have her focus on the sales and promotions, so I can focus on creating my collections. It really makes me wonder why I waited so long to make this change, as I had long felt that doing it on my own was the way to go. I believe any of you who meet Alicia will enjoy working with her as much as I do. Many thanks to one of my customers for making the introduction to Alicia, as it is always a huge decision to put your business in the hands of another person.

I attended the America'sMart show in Atlanta in January, and I was able to meet Alicia for the first time in person after several phone conversations to define our relationship. What a delightful time I had meeting a few of my current customers and getting to know Alicia better. Just as soon as I met her, I was sure I had made the right decision.

My family has grown with the birth of my second grandchild in February! She decided to make her arrival one month early, so I had to wait until she was about 5 weeks old to meet her as my flight to Denmark (their home) was scheduled closer to her expected arrival. Her older sister and I had quite a fun time together, and nothing is better than holding a newborn. I so miss seeing them on a regular basis, but my visit was again as wonderful as could be. It is soo fun to see the world through their curious minds.
