Not peddling advice...

Seems I need to clarify this point...My original blog was intended to be a place where information could be shared. Until recently, there hasn't been a whole lot of usable information for designers. It just so happens that Fashion Incubator more than fills that niche...for awhile it looked as though it had a more mechanical bent, but as people and ideas evolve, so has Kathleen's blog which I value very much. I changed my blog because the need is being filled better than what I can provide...so, time to move on. I am always happy to share my experiences, I really feel that information shared between colleagues and friends is a valuable way to gain insight into one's own process. The key term here is SHARE. I like sharing and I like to be shared with. As far as I know you don't need to be a rocket scientist to do that. I am also fairly new to blogging. It's great, but I have a thing or two to learn about it. In terms of my own credentials for being a purported designer..yes, I do have a line, yes I have made sales, and yes I am in the process of revamping and re-introducing my ready to wear collections. I will be posting pictures as soon as I can figure out the picture sharing thing. This is really the last post I will devote to this topic. I didn't start this blog to constantly defend my decision to start it. As far as I am concerned someone somewhere will always do a better job than you at something. I do not fool myself that I am the best designer, business person, artist, etc. But my ideas have merit (people even tell me so) and I am taking the chance that someone else will see that as well.
