"Phase one, in which Doris..."

Last night April and I got our first order for a skirt through the website (everything up until now has been less "official")and I'm very excited about it. It's got me anxious to be able to sit down and do a bit of creating again, as it's been a few weeks since I've been able to do much of that, outside of my writing. I'm thinking of getting a mini silkscreen (a Gocco machine, I believe)to help with my card making. Will allow me to go much further than I've been able to with just paper, scissors and glue thus far.

The writing is going well. Dad liked the first fifty pages, but did any of us really expect that he wouldn't? He's obligated. But I appreciate the support nonetheless, and am moving forward. I think it's finally truly started to become a habit. I sit down every night and do a little bit, and if I don't it feels strange. This isn't to say that I'm not one vacation away from falling off the novel writing bandwagon, but so far, so good.

It's Spring in California and I feel happy.

Its starting to become Michigan Spring too, and even though that means only in the mid to high 40's ... it makes me very happy!

And it makes me happy, that you are happy.

If you double your orders every month, you'll be selling a million in 2 years. Better think about hiring more staff. Love you.

I may be your dad, but I'm also a writer and editor. I know a good writer when I see one. And you, my dear, are a very good writer.

It's very cold and windy today in Michigan, but my daffodils are up about 6 inches, and that makes me happy. And I love to see you say you are happy!
