Big-Head Nonsense

You're gonna love this one! I DO!!! I was talking to a very talented interior designer/designer from NYC via telephone yesterday. He called to inquire about a piece he ordered for a client. During the conversation, Grace interrupted twice while I was trying to sound oh-so-smart. I'm sure he was impressed with my office staff. Anyhow, I'll fast foward to the big-head part. The very kind designer thanked me for picking up the phone, since mostly he was getting answering machines and automated systems. And then....wait for it....he said, "you are famous...everyone loves that (Owyn) toy box."

And there it went. My big head. I'm now demanding that people not look me in the eye while speaking to me. And white flowers have to accompany me wherever I go. Oh, and sparkling water too.

As you can imagine, this is going over very well with my staff.

(It should be noted that Grace has interrupted the writing of this post roughly 11 times. SOMEBODY GET ME SOME DAMN SPARKLING WATER!!)

I just saw you in a etsy treasury. Your work is brilliant! I have a 7 and 9 year old and I wish I'd know about your work earlier. I yearned for a 'fashionable' toy box, but ended up using a old trunk that wasn't finger friendly, but we survived.

You made a wise decision following your dreams and passions, and it shows. Good luck in your future adventures!

LA is clearly bad for you. You need to spend more time in the midwest, where even the famous people drink tap water, albeit filtered.

Of course, no one has heard of our famous people...
