business with pleasure...

well we are back - all of us from MR - the partners. it was a good trip - we got to handle some business. my DH got a chance to visit the plant he works with at his full time job to handle some business and we got a chance to spend some time with my grandma and various relatives - some who live in hong kong, some who live in australia came too.

in a period of 11 days, we left texas, went to hong kong, left hong kong, went to singapore, left singapore went back to hong kong, left hong kong and went into china, left china and back to hong kong and came back home. in the meantime, we even made a thanksgiving dinner (complete with turkey!), ate some excellent food and got a chance to plan for next year.

and a side note on next year, i have to stay mum for a bit about what we are planning BUT i can can say that you will see some very very cool ribbons from us that is unlike anything we have done in the past - VERY COOL - also, we have some cool tins that we plan on having out that are both functional and very afforable (that's all i can say for now).

and i think that we are all very tired - from all of the visiting and planning. deb and i will get into it when we are both stressed out- no more knock down drag out fights but more yelling but again we get past it and we move on to better things. overall it was a very good trip.

but along with all of the good things, we had to reject a shipment of our foam stamps. we are having them ALL remade as deb and i were not happy with the quality of what we saw. so for you looking forward to the stamps, they won't be ready for another 6 weeks. we feel bad about that but we would rather do it right the first time than have to recall everything we had done. this is our name on the line.

so it is back to work - for those who have emailed or called, we haven't forgotten about you and will get back to you in the next two days.

with that i must call it a night!

It's so good to hear from you again, Caroline! Sounds like quite a whirlwind trip. I hope you are able to get some rest!!!!

I love that top photo... Little India in Singapore, right? (One of my favorite temples that I have visited and in such a cool neighborhood!) I cannot wait to see what you guys come out with! :-)
