Good Morning, Monday! I spent all of yesterday working on a much needed update to our website imagery. You know the feeling when you need to reconnect things back to their origins? I had let the representation of what I do with my days slide too far away from my studio. So, I scheduled a last minute photoshoot in our new space and it turned out exactly how I wanted.
The last many months have brought an overwhelming amount of change. All change that will lead to positive things but still, quite a lot to balance. Sunday’s photoshoot was a reminder that good creative energy comes when you let yourself be aware of it, responding to it when it shows itself. I wasn’t planning on writing an emotional email this morning but, as you all know, Moop is not just a business for me, it is what shapes and influences my entire life. And, when I have a lot going on, it’s hard for me to shelter one from the other. So, a quick rundown: My amazing incredible husband and I have decided to split up. This has been difficult and emotional but, ultimately a mutual decision that we both know will be better for all of us. We care for each other deeply, but it’s where we need to go to reach whatever the next stage of our lives are. At the same time, my lead assistant of three years left Moop for another job. I am super happy for her, but that news paired with the studio move and the start of our holiday production season has made things more than a little crazy around here. I am also in the process of moving to a new house with my daughter, back in the city and closer to my studio (eek! It’s super cute!)..that happens next Tuesday. This will eliminate a 3 hour daily commute, but until then, moving is tiring and consuming…especially for me at this moment in time. No biggie, though, we'll just sling a few mattresses on the floor and live out of suitcases until mid-January. Oh, and also! we’ve had such amazing press over the last few months…that combined with your incredible support means our holiday production is in full swing as we head into our most successful holiday season to date.
Many many many thanks and a million hugs and kisses and tons and tons of Moop bags,
