I've been feeling kind of reflective over the last few days. We have been very busy - Doug and I are both working on really big (separate) projects and we are putting in long hours in the studio. But this weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving so I'm going to take a few days off, go and see my folks and relax. I'd just like to say thank you for all your comments in the last couple of weeks - the feedback on the new product has been very generous and kind and I am very grateful for your feedback.

I'd also like to share a little something with you that made me very proud this week. Cartolina was chosen as one of the top 10 small businesses in BC in 2011 by the government's Small Business Round Table - who report to the Federal government on the state of small business in BC every year. An annual report is produced and 10 businesses are picked. I still can hardly believe that, out of the thousands of businesses that they considered for the top 10, Cartolina was chosen. We work hard and we stay focused and we love what we do - I feel very lucky.

Fall in the Kootenays!
