I'm back !

I just finished up my twice a year LA gig as showroom designer for a beautiful, 40,000 square foot gift showroom at the Cal Mart...exhausting though very creative & fun !  It takes me out of the loop and my everyday life for about four weeks in June & July, then again in December & January when I drive up to LA and stay for entire weeks at a time while we tear apart the showroom and then put it all back together again for the trade gift shows. It's a nice little shake up that makes me get out and do something different...and when it's all done, I really appreciate coming home and sleeping in my own bed at night !  

Here's a little taste of some of the merchandise presentations I do for 
California Marketing Associates...better known as CMA

New to CMA... Lenox, Gorham & Dansk table top & bar ware

Delicae' Gourmet food line 

Garden is always a big classification 

New line Esschert...a great gardening line with planting kits including the seeds. 

More gardening from A&B furniture line. 

really fun tree trunk garden furniture 

A&B...beautiful new home furnishing line

This is a really BIG showroom...so many beautifully tempting things ! 

I love pulling groups together and displaying pretty merchandise! 

Paragon art & Tag table top...love the colors

A few shots of some of my friends I get to work with at CMA. I've worked with this showroom twice a year, for close to 20 years and some of these people almost as long! Not everyone is shown here, but it's great teamwork and as much as I love being home, and back into my own creative life...I always look forward to seeing and working with them at showtime. 

So that's what I've been up to for the last month or so...now back to pillows and getting ready to be part of the Vintage and Market Finds launch on One Kings Lane...Yipppeeee!  More on that to follow...meandering through my creative life.

Hope your all having a beautiful summer !
