A New Year

This year is an exciting time for magoolie designs. There will be a make-over of all the existing presentation tags. New ideas and new pieces will also be making their way onto the stands. This week I have been working on some new fresh designs for the label. Rather than release them all at once, I have enough ideas for the whole year!!! I just hope that they all turn out.

Sometimes I have an idea, and I make the sample and once it comes out of the kiln it doesn't quite look right, or hang right, or sit right..... so back to the drawing board. Sometimes it can take a few weeks for a new item to be realised, and sometimes a few months worth of tweaking is involved. Sometimes it doesn't even make it into the range at all. After I have made my samples I always try them out at local markets first to guage interest and get feedback. If everything turns out well....then it's off to make some more and contact my wholesalers to tell them the good news.
