"Send a Salami to your Boy in the Army"!



How great are these photos from Quango Inc., my awesome website dudes in Portland, Oregon--I send them a "thank you salami" and a big rye bread from Katz' Deli in NYC every year partly because it was funny the first time, now because they love it--it's been a tradition since 2005! We're set to overhaul my old website and give it a whole new oomphy thing in 2009. Thus I bribe them with salamis. (Of course any ideas or feedback for the new site are welcome. I'm going to need all the help I can get on this one...)

On another non-salami related note, I've been on holiday from my computer and pretty much from all modern communications these past few weeks. I'll be back in full swing towards the beginning of next week, it's just that my hands actually hurt from all that was December, bright and beautiful. I am resting them (and my brain) and will be back to work designing my Fall '09 collection and some special news about a new store we're working with (very exciting!) and to (best of all!) catch up with all of you and your wonderful bloggies with nimble mind and fingers so often you will be sick of me.

*{Check out the Food Bank for NYC Raffle winner's blog, Superdumb/Supervillain to hear about Naomi's reaction to her big package of goodies! What a cool person to have won I think---you'll see what I mean when you take a gander at her blog. She is... awesome..I'll be organizing another one again soon for sure!}

Do res your precious hands.

Thanks again for a taste of New York from all of us at Quango. Your gift parted the clouds over Portland (for a little while at least). Best wishes for 2009.
