I know I have been away from blogging for too many weeks. I have not been away from social media, however. I have been on Twitter off and on over all that time. I really like Twitter because it is so quick. But here I am back at blogging, too.
I am lucky to have been so busy over the past couple of months. In addition to writing and editing The Trend Curve™, I have also released out "Tis The Season™ 2010 - 2011 trend and color forecast for the Holidays. Thank you to everyone who has sent back positive comments on this product! I have also created a new kids color and trend forecast.
This new kids' product was a collaborative effort with my friend and colleague Carole D'Arconte. Carole is an internationally known color and trend forecaster for apparel. She has been a Contributing Editor to The Trend Curve for years. She and I developed Keeping Up With Kids™ Fall/Winter 2010 to highlight the overlapping trends in what kids will wear and how they want to decorate their personal spaces. It's a fun product that includes a CD with 250 images, plus 30 color standards taken from The Trend Curve Colors™. We have already gotten some nice feedback on the product.
I have two other trend-forecasting projects in mind and hope to start both in late September. Between now and then I am involved in a huge trend-forecasting project for a client. That will take most of my attention. But I will also be in New York for the International Gift Fair, and then in Paris for Maison & Objet. Watch for blog posts from both and/or follow me on Twitter. Then you can also watch for trend reports about Maison & Objet interiors products, and outdoor products, too (the update to What's In Outdoors).
