Happenings in China


Dec. 7th, 2012

I’m a whole half a day ahead of home which is Atlanta, GA. It’s kind of weird to be waking up when the other half of the world is going to sleep, but that’s how it goes when you are on the other side of planet from where you normally live...

I’m in China and it’s day 12 of my project and journey. I’m here inspecting orders and working with a new factory we have taken on in partnership. My Dad ended up not joining me as he was tied up with domestic projects that required his immediate attention. So it’s just me and that’s fine.   Attached is a photo of me with Anita, my colleague and helper, while I’m in China or away. She lives in Xiamen where we do most of our work and keeps an eye on things when I’m not there and helps me navigate China when I am there. I don’t speak Mandarin, yet, but even if I did there are hundreds of dialects and many cultural nuances to navigate, though I’ve been doing this for a few years already. So far things are going relatively smoothly as I’ve worked with our main factory for a long time and they know what we are looking for and desiring in our products. It is however, exceptionally busy as it is the time period just before Chinese New Years, when everyone who does work in China is busy getting last min. orders in before all of China shuts down for about two weeks time in Feb.

Come the end of Jan. and Feb. we’ll be updating our website to include all the new creations and finally the long awaited for animal angels and pet memorials. It is also official that’ll we’ll be bringing tiny critters for the Fairy Cottage and Toad house line! Photos to come soon!

Until next time.....
