Andrew and I flew up to NYC for the weekend to enjoy our 5th year of wedded bliss. Got to walk the Village, Little Italy, China Town, SOHO, and visit w/our friend Kate and her family. Always fun and always too short.
Sunday we walked the NYIGF. We had walked it before and when I tried to pay for our entrance online, the system barfed, so I waited until we arrived to register. Oh happy day! We didn’t have to pay $50/ea to get inside! Yee-haw! Because we are re-evaluating the business plan (one cannot build a business plan on Licensing alone), we decided it would be best to asses the best venue to show our wares. Looks like handmade within the US will be the best for us, so it’s time to get the application and slides ready for jury! Come visit us in January!
Meanwhile, we happened upon 2 very intriguing companies that may just be a perfect match. A cool pen company (can’t you see the cats on that?) and a weaving company (can’t you see the new dog breed series on that?) for home decor & accessories. So, time to get busy with designs!!
Monday was a good day to relax and take in some art at the MoMA –I wasn’t feeling that well. We got to see some great pieces: Picasso, Klee, Klimt, Miro, Monet… plus some special exhibits:Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling. Andrew couldn’t resist picking up the brick sized compendium. The Dali exhibit was also fascinating coupled with his role in cinema -what a multimedia experience! Would love to go thru again, without the crowds.
Being with Andrew, the Charmed One, is always exhilarating. MensaBoy, as I fondly call him, asked at the airline if the earlier flight had 2 available seats. Voila! We were on it quicker than I can say, “Supercalifragisticexpialidocious” and landed before our original flight was due to take off.
Love that man of mine.
