So I've been missing in action for awhile now, I know. Although I've said it before, my absence was for good reason.
We hired a new staff. First few folks didn't work out, but 3rd time was the charm. Jessi started working with us about 6 weeks ago and we just adore her. (Hope she doesn't mind that I stole this photo of her off Facebook!)
I could say that I have been so busy training her about all things Mimi Green and that is the reason I haven't blogged, but that is so far from the truth. After the first week Jessi was rocking and rolling. Mr. Miller said she is going to be better at making collars than we are soon! We love her. She is not allowed to quit, ever. It was a bit stressful, okay a lot stressful, to hire lots of new people. It took up a lot of my attention and I thank God that is over for now.
I have gone on a redecorating spree. The house looks like someone else's house — and I have been keeping it clean! I couldn't figure out how to balance kids / husband/ business / house but now I think I am getting the hang of it. Only took me 9 years!
Here are some views of our bedroom. I can't get enough of it. It is my first bedroom that feels like it belongs to a grown up. We also have been working on the yard:
See, check me out, I did my laundry AND hung it outside!
I kinda got a 4th dog!
Meet Coraline Jackson-Miller. I didn't exactly mean to get a 4th dog, but I did and we love her. She might take a plane ride to MN to live with Dan's family who are looking for a dog, but we will see. We are getting pretty attached;)
Reason #5, and the biggest reason for not blogging…
We designed a ton of new stuff! You can see our 2009 Holiday Gear on our site here
New Fall line here:
And lots of new colors of flowers! There are some other new Mimi Green designs on the way, but those I will keep under wraps. Until next time, and I promise it won't be months this time!
