About a week ago, I mentioned that I was juggling with two suppliers right now. The original one, whom I received my 8 samples from last week on Christmas Eve, is teetering on the edge of a wobbly cliff right now (not literally). After he was a month late with my samples, I anxiously awaited … Continue reading
The homeland of the infamous Graceland is now also home to my acetate samples. Somehow the snow storms (legitimate ones this time I think) in Europe have detoured them to Memphis? Hopefully they enjoy their stay – a short one preferably!

You might think it’s a bit premature, considering I’m no where near full operating order, but I thought it would be important to at least have a vague idea of what I’m striving for. It helps to calm me … Continue reading
