Kata Golda's Going to Portland!

What a busy day! Today I received a request to express ship 2 personalized stuffed mouse companions over to The Wall Street Journal for their holiday gift guide... and how could I not drop everything for that? I also sent out an order that was 26 boxes and weighed 1200 lbs... and that was only part of the order! Then there's the Hanukkah order rush...and the last minute scrambling to fill last minute orders. The holiday starts on December 1 this year, so it's really coming up fast.

But in the midst of all this, things are coming together quite smoothly for my trip to Portland in a few weeks:
I can't wait to get down there and let the fun begin — it will be a nice little vacation for me. I'm splitting my "work time" between Egg Press and Modern Domestic, with a plans to duck into Bolt Fabric for some long-overdue fabric browsing!

Here's my full Portland schedule:
