Hello. I love SPRING here in Maine so much it hurts. My gardens are almost all up and all the green has given everything new life. We spent a few weeks hiring folks to take down old fallen trees–opening up the wooded acre on the right side of our house (right outside my studio) I will post these. So pretty now that the leaves are out! Takes forever for SPRING to hit Maine but it’s insanely peaceful here with all the ferns and trees, lots of froggies in the pond for the kiddos to play with–LOTS of MUD and always enough design work that keeps things humming around here. And some newest FLETT news is that I fell in love with baby bunnies from a local farm stand, and well we ended up with two lop eared mixes that the girls are holding as I write this early Sat morning:) (and side note is that I was ALONE–so yes folks, just says I am a sucker for all things cute and soft and as my mother put it, “a gluten for punishment AKA: Going to be hell maintaining life here as normal when the girls are obsessively holding and loving these two cuties). But all is well so far and Mas brought home the BIGGEST BUNNY CAGE in the planet from a FARM that he is renovating. (a million dollar renovation so not your typical farm ha ha) But killer bunny cage that just needed a little love. These bunnies are going to be PIMPED OUT! )
A few new projects posted. BLANCHE + MIMI’s new card and sign–killer home shop in OLD PORT PORTLAND MAINE, a fun wedding package that is all MAINE inspired and a NEW WEBSITE screen shot that is coming out SOON that will be a kick ass shopping site–finally! (been working on designing a new site for almost a year now). I never seem to have the time to really button things up–but the serge of orders in wholesale and just pillow sales in general have made me much more of a believer that I need a site that people can actually see what I do as well as see the massive amount of options we have in textile pillow prints. Frankly I have such an obsession with design–and seem to find inspiration everywhere. Starting to say that my work is “LIFE INSPIRED” because it is this amazing life that inspires me everyday.
Heading to HIGH POINT, NC next Saturday. Exactly one week from today to launch my most exciting news–a new bold and graphic line of WOVEN OUTDOOR FABRICS that has all the erin flett color you can ask for (and smart neutrals to balance them out) + some really simple, imperfect graphic prints that I am so in love with. Attached is a poster that I put together for the lobby of the trade show. Hard to get your head around a huge pic of yourself–Winky Lewis captured this shot in my studio a few months ago. This image will also be in OPRAH in JULY–which is another kick in the pants that I needed to get my new website done! (Mas will be coming with me for this 5 day adventure and I could not be happier). I could not imagine NOT sharing this moment with him. Sadly, the two little ones will be here with my lovely mom and Mimi (maslen’s mom). So thankful for them but sad that they will not be with us. (I can just see Ary talking about froggies and bunnies and worms to all who would listen and Breshia being bored out of her mind since she is all of 8 with so much to do ha ha. (more…)
