Busy Designing...Again

I am busy, busy, busy trying to design 7 custom rugs for a client in Arizona and getting ready to teach a class tomorrow on "How to Sell on Ebay" ...all the while sniffling and coughing. I fought hard to not catch the cold going around my family but looks like I've finally succomb to it...darn! Please pray that I have a voice tomorrow...my voice is essential to teach a class!! As soon as I get this design project complete, I'll post again, but for now take a look at these fabulous custom rugs!





Oh and Rhoda from Southern Hospitality who was the winner of our custom rug giveaway just received her rug yesterday! She said she will be posting pics soon. UPDATE 2/21/09: Rhoda just posted the photos of her new entry rug that we made for her....here is 1 of the pics...
She chose a 4' round black rug with a zebra print "M" inlay to go in her entry. Stop by Rhoda's blog to see the rest of the photos!
This was the first time we did an animal print initial inlay. I think it turned out nice so we will start offering our monogram rugs with leopard & zebra as well as all our other solid colors. If you would like one of your own...contact us.

Hi Darlene...

Ahhh...you poor thing! I'm so sorry that you seemed to catch that cold, Sweetie...I am already praying for you!!! Sheesshh...if it's not already difficult enough to have a public class to teach but then to not be feeling well...I'm so sorry, my friend! May the Lord bless you with His strength and healing!!!

Oh my, you are busy!!! Seven custom rugs...sounds like a big order! I loved all of the rug photos but have to say that the one with all of the swirlys in cream, brown, black, & gray is my favorite!!!

Feel better...I'm praying for you!
Best wishes for your class tomorrow!!!

What a creative post!

I just had to stop by (saw your comment on Beauty and Bedlam) and say Hi to another Darlene :)

Ugh. I hope you feel well soon. My husband and I recently moved to Germany. We've been talking a little about rugs. It's common to find rugs from Turkey here but wow! Nothing like the ones you design. I love them so.

Hi, Darlene! Hope you're feeling better. The rug pics are up today, so take a look. We had company for dinner last night & that's the first thing she commented on when she walked in the door...the rug!
