1 month...

it was noah's 1 month celebration yesterday - it is crazy to me how much he has grown in a month. he has packed on 3 lbs since birth and is starting to get chubby cheeks. it is hard sometimes for me to realize how much he has grown this month - maybe b/c i am with him most of the day. but we were watching his birth video and looking at some pictures and he has changed so much!
and deb and i were just talking about out our other "first baby" - AKA Maya Road has grown in the last 3 years. i found part of our first display the other day - it was a fiber "montage" i made made and put in a pottery barn shadow box to showcase our fibers - LOL! and we had put it in front of this 4' x 6' peg board contraption my DH and one of my friends had built for our table top. I also still have our Maya Road shirts - ah such memories.

in the end, Maya Road is at a place which I didn't think we would be in 3 short years. 5 years from now? yeah - possibly but not in 3 years. looking back, though we have added 250 - 300 products since then, our philosophy is still about the same. deb and i handle most of the aspects of our business - does that surprise you?

yes, we have help on the customer support end and the warehouse end but when it comes down to it, we (being the anal-retentive people we are) pretty much do it all from product concept to trade show planning to newsletter planning to strategic activities to customer focus (and we have to give a shout out to our DHs too). does that surprise you? yeah, it would be nice to be able to sketch out a design and have someone take the concept - make prototypes and say "here you go" and pop out a product for us but in the end, that is not what we are about. we are the name behind MR and so what if we are not well known? i think our products speak for themselves.

oh yeah thanks to all ya'll blog stalkers who signed up for the newsletter. deb and i worked on that puppy for hours trying to get everything right and in order and it means a lot when you enjoy what we have put together. and for those of you who haven't signed up, make sure you do b/c you are missing out on some sneak peeks as well as some giveaways! go to and sign up on the upper right hand corner - check the "consumer" newsletter for the giveaways!
