I think this course is absolutely fabulous and with your new business, will help you immensely. Kimberly has fab taste and years of experience... The design part is easy it's the rest of the work that comes with it. Wish I could have taken it years ago, it's good when someone lays out the process for you.

cheers, have a great weekend.

And yes PEI should be a must for you this summer.
