relationships of the vendor kind

Been absent for a while but its a good thing. It means I am BUSY!!! But busy does have its downside in a small operation, as it sometimes leaves us open for the smallest of mistakes that can somehow have the biggest impact. And that's why developing great relationships in this line of business is so important. Of course, the client relationship is key as without them there will be no design. But just as important are my vendors, old, new, preferred, and potential. And right now, I am loving the fabulous Jill Hubbard at MDC Wallcoverings. Not only does she share my birthday making her a wonderful lioness, but she just happens to be the best sales person I've ever worked with...from student right through the tough 1st year of entrepreneurship. I need to take a lesson out of your book Jill! You understand the true meaning of maintaining relationships/customer service and I definitely look forward to spec'ing whatever it is you are selling!!!

For those of you not in the know, check out the enormous selection of wallpaper, paint, etc. at mdcwall.com. Right now I am thrilled about their Papyrus series and the Bolta contract stuff. And might I add that the DRY ERASE paint is genius! Will soon be photographing recently completed phases on ongoing projects to give you an idea of how these products allow me to really set moods the ishkadesigns way. In the meantime, check out the ishkadesigns website to see how I've utilized MDC on past projects.

Stay warm and blessed,
