I had to update you since my last post. 

I received two more badges in The Textile Design Lab at 

Pattern Observer.

I was so tickled to finally get the badge above.

I nicknamed it "The Big Daddy Badge". 

It didn't come easy I can tell you that.

Through months of crying and walking away and giving up 

more times than I'd like to admit.

I got it!

This is the other badge I received along with The Textile 

Production Designer Badge. Free-Flowing Repeat Badge.

I'm so glad I didn't give up. 

My daughter shared on Facebook that I was teaching her 

that it's never too late to go for your dream.

I like that. 

She's also been giving us some feedback on what we can do 

better to help our business move forward.

This might help you too. I hope it does.

She told me that she almost didn't share my status because it 

was so cluttered with hash and page tags. 

I told her I needed to put those in there.

You know what? 

She's a consumer. She's who we work for.

I think I'll listen to her.

No more hash tags and page tags that clutter up our post.

She also said that she liked my Boho Stripe Pillow but would 

like different colors.

So I made one up for her in Red, Black, and Blue which is the 

colors she likes best. She liked it but I'm going to work with 

this one a little more. I think I can do better arranging the 


So there you have it. 

We appreciate her feedback so much.

We would appreciate yours too.

PS: Even if you feel like you just can't go on one more day, 

one more minute, go on anyway.

It'll be worth it. 

You'll make the ones who love you proud.

But most important,

You'll make you proud. ;)

PSS: Even though I received these badges and I'm proud of 

them, I know I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go. 

Let's do this!
