Hello everyone…I just received an e-mail from Southern Living magazine that the video is up for the 2009 Idea House in Port Aransas,Texas. They included some of my art for the children’s upstaris bedroom. They only show the Mod Owls in the room, but they did put some others in there as well. You’ll have to pick up the August issue to see the rest. I’m so excited and honored to be chosen as one of the many artists throughout the house. Click on the link below to watch the video…and my art is shown around the 2-minute mark. Thanks for looking..Smile

Editorial Director’s Product Picks
During the recent June market week, I visited a few showrooms on the 6th floor at the California Market Center, Los Angeles. There is so much new product to see and discover, a buyer could easily spend several days shopping and not see it all. I visited several showrooms that are members of Kids on 6, a co-op association of permanent showrooms at the California Market Center, Los Angeles. They work together to promote the many benefits retailers find year-round on the 6th floor. I noticed that all the showrooms have spiffed up their product displays, added welcoming touches for retailers, and have added new products from their existing brands, while adding new lines, especially in gift and non-seasonal products.

Here is Part 1 of my personal picks from my recent visit:
