Here we go again, another year is about to pass. When looking back at the past 365 days I realized that 2016 was a great year! You never really realize what has happened until you spend the time thinking about it. We thought we would share with you some of our highlights of 2016.
1. The launch of Artfully Spoken
After a year of planning and designing, Artfully Spoken finally hit book shelves around the world. It was so exciting to hear the feedback and share with the world my creations.
2. Behind the scenes video
This behind the scenes look into my work and Design Different was something I wanted to do for years. With the good help of a friend we put it into production and shot it with-in a day. I later edited it all myself and created a new about page.
3. Our new dog Smokey
Smokey, the newest member of our family gave us lots of laughs and love this year. She's part Siberian and part Malamute Husky. And yes she sheds... a lot.
4. The launch of our t-shirts
2016 was the year for our tees. This was something we wanted to do for a while now. The production and design of them was extremely challenging and took the better part of 3 months to make.
5. We went to DISNEY
One of the highlights of 2016 was our summer trip to Disney World. Have two kids aged 4 and 6, it was the perfect time to experience the magic.
6. Our tees made it into BRIKA stores
BRIKA's unique Toronto brick and mortar shops are carrying our line of tees. They chose 3 of our top sellers to showcase in their 5 shops throughout Toronto.
7. OOAKS 2016
Last year we took part in the One of a Kind Show here in Toronto. It was a huge success, so we thought this year we would do the full 11 days! Carrying over 800 artisans from around North America the OOAKS was an amazing place to showcase out products and set all the people who support our brand.
