Whirlwind :)

The past month has felt very surreal between the Shark Tank airing, all the emails and messages of support, and the flights to North Carolina for the International Home Furnishings Market & NYC for the Nate Berkus show.  I feel very, very fortunate to have the support of so many people.  Thanks again for all the press and kind messages!

I've been busy working on growing the business through manufacturing new designs, connecting with new retailers and customers and managing the day-to-day logistics of running a furniture company. I'm so lucky to have an amazing team of people working tirelessly to help me manage all of it.  And I thought building toy boxes was time consuming! :) Thanks so much to Katie Hatch, Lauren Tucker, Julie Martin Sunich, my Mom (part-time assistant) and Dad (QC/East Coast Czar) for shouldering some of the workload. And thanks to my husband and family for being so understanding and juggling schedules to accommodate me being out of town.  And for loving me for who I am faults and all. :)

Here's a few of the press-related links that have shown up over the past few weeks..

Just watched your episode of Shark Tank and thought your pitch and product KILLED. Obviously the Sharks thought the same. ;)

Best of luck in your venture - congrats!
