Happy New Year to everyone, we trust you all had a wonderful and joyous Christmas and holiday period.
The last 2 months of 2008 proved to be shear madness. It has been near impossible to complete all orders and service every customer such has been the overwhelming response to my design, not to mention our first major magazine feature, the current edition of FRANKIE magazine and attracted a flood of sales and enquirers, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for there understanding during this busy time. Now that the New Year has come and things have slowed a little, I can finally breathe again.
So what’s new for 2009? Well RUN WILD HORSES officially turns 2, I can’t believe it, once a weekend hobby, a cure for boredom and to silence that nagging creative voice inside my head, has now become a well established label (mostly with me sitting in the back seat, belt firmly fastened, holding on tight and enjoying the ride.), and on this point I must say a massive thank you to all my wonderful stockists who boarded the Run Wild Horses express in the first 18 months (prior to my move to Gippsland) and are still with me, it’s been a challenging ride, mostly in the dark without head lights, in the rain on a oil slicked road. But now that we are established in our cute little studio home, the road ahead will be much smoother. Also thanks go out to all my brand new stockist and those who have expressed interest in my label, you help to make the bus roll along
The second new line is called “Critters 4 Oscar” and is the resultant creation of my little sister’s repressed creative talent, which has only re-surfaced after the birth of her first child Oscar. The story behind this lines inception is as delightful as creations themselves. The line features a playful and vibrant collection of quirky home furnishings for nurseries thought to adult entertaining areas, these include wall hangings, mobiles, softies, garlands and cushions.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE...as previously mentioned we will also be releasing 2 Collections throughout the year. We are still working thought the formal details however it is most likely that the collections will be offered as an Autumn and a Spring release. The collections will feature OOAK designs and strictly limited edition pieces.
Take care, stay happy
