Schools out for summer,  Jacks at camp everyday, Maggie spends the day at the Beach with Kelsey and Gus rolls around the house counting minutes between feedings.  It is great watching these kids grow in different stages and a challenge to meet there needs.  

eco kids is growing as well and it is a challenge to meet the needs of the company.  We have 6 weeks till the New York International Gift Fair and a full plate of deadlines to meet.  We are debuting 7 new products to market!  With this comes organizing ourselves, coordinating with our office team, working with our illustrator, graphic designer, web designer, packaging staff, shipping team, and getting all of this to the printers in time for New York... ...what else would I do today?

I sometimes think how nice it would be to be one of the kids. We are stretched thin but know what the outcome in NY can be. Bringing our new products to our existing retailers, and knowing that the major accounts will be in to talk to us...that is exciting.  We'll grow larger, employ more people, build a presence in the market place, give our staff livelihood and be able to do more with our families.  To know that we conceptualized something from an idea to the market shelf is pretty cool.  Isn't that what this challenge is about, being able to do more, experience more and travel the world.  We have exiting things to come in the near future.  We are looking ahead but keeping our eye on the daily tasks to get there. Stay tuned my fellow readers, the challenge continues...

A little teaser of things to come...
