I spent the weekend on computer updates and issues but am set to go again. I’m trying to get this computer to last another year or two, but it seems like they always get cranky as soon as the 3 year warranty is up. I’m still on XP and it’d be good to update to Windows 7 in the next year so I can test my site on it whenever I make changes.
It’s been busy here after the To Dream release, but I’m catching up. I almost have a tester for the soft summery floral — getting close. I have several other projects in progress and will talk more about them soon.
I had the pleasure of meeting perfumer Ayala Sender of Ayala Moriel Parfums about a week ago — it was really fun to meet in person after corresponding via email. She’s a sweet person, beautiful inside and out. Her perfumes are all-natural and I like how smooth and well blended they are. If you miss the old oakmossy chypres you might want to sniff her Ayalitta — it’s a lovely oakmoss-rich scent. She posted tonight on her blog about our visit. Ayala’s blog is a treasure trove of information about natural ingredients if you take time to browse.
Luckily it didn’t rain for our visit, but we’ve been having typical crazy spring weather. I’m hoping to start some open studio hours this summer, assuming people can find us out here, lol.
