I am been on overload lately. GenMarie is expanding rapidly, and with that, comes a whole new business plan. If you would have told me 2 1/2 years ago when I started my company, this is where it would be in such a short time, I would have said no way! I started my company then because of my infatuation with fabric, and children's clothing. Now it has become so much more. I lay in bed every night exhausted, yet I can't go to sleep, because my mind is spinning thinking about everything there is to do, or new design ideas. I am very close to securing a sewing contractor. This is good, very good. That means more time to develop new ideas, spend chatting with my amazing customers, and play with my girls. This is what I want. I will do my best to keep all of you in the loop, as the new plans unfold. I am very excited and nervous all at the same time. But getting the great feedback from all my customers is what makes it all worth it. I love every minute of this process. I am getting a manufacturing education on the go right now. But enough boring business stuff.
I have to share this beautiful photo of two of my beautiful little clients. This is Kaya ad her big sister Hailey. They are the exact same ages as my girls! Their mom, Diane, and I, have become close through our email chats. One day I promise Diane, I will get out there to see you!
Although you can't really see, Hailey is wearing my Fishy set from last summer. I still love this set! I love how you can see the love the girls have for each other.
OK, soooo....GenMarie will be celebrating it's official 2nd Anniversary next month! WOW! I don't know where 2 years went. First, I have to thank all of you, my amazing and wonderful customers. Without you, there would be no GenMarie. I am so fortunate to have gotten to know so many wonderful woman over the past 2 years and their families. I feel as if I could travel the country, and have a place to stay in almost every state. I love that I chat with my customers, and we share our lives, and although, for some, understanding the bond we have over the internet is hard, it is there and strong, none the less. Despite the fact that GenMarie is growing, one thing will NEVER change, the time I spend chatting with you all. This is very important to me. I love our chats, and getting pictures of your sweeties!
With this in mind, I am doing a giveaway to celebrate 2 years in style, and all of my lovely customers. Post a comment here, and you will be entered to win one of 3 pieces from my new collection, Autumn Sky. Names will be chosen at random through a random number generator on August 1st! So get posting! See it pays to read my rambling thoughts, lol. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart...
