more thoughts on MT...

as promised, here are a couple of more pics from our booth. pic 1 is some of our new ribbons and pic 2 is the "home" feel of our booth. i do vote for a nice sofa next time so we have some place to sit! LOL...

but thanks to everyone who stopped by. it means a lot to deb and i (and also to our DH who sometimes question the insanity we put ourselves through) as sometimes we question what are we thinking when we take on such a daunting task. while we have lots of help on projects from our fab DT, friends and family, for the majority of the decisions and coordination - we do it ourselves. from pkg design to label design to product design to catalog design to booth design. yeah just the two of us. and there are days when we wonder if we will make it - not b/c we are fresh out of ideas but more so b/c it really isn't easy being small and competing with larger companies out there. we hope that we have carved a niche with our funky products that are priced fairly and packaged attractively. having the majority of the work being done by us helps us to keep to those goals.

things like this trade show energize us. make us want to come up with new things. to work harder and made more items better. they give us hope that we can grow down the path we want to.

PS... oh yeah, my DH is now planning his own MR line too that he hopes will make it through the design process so you might see something from him in early 2006! don't worry, he will have to justify his product line to deb and i before we give it the full on green light.

Couch would be a great idea! Can't wait to see how you'd alter that one!

DH is coming out with a line?!?!? Can't wait to see it!

I'm going to ask for MR products for Christmas! Woohoo!
