Let’s hear it for the boys!

As we knew, a big part of our audience is the women out there who want to beautify their spaces. But hey, let’s not leave the guys out! It really tickled me that just in the past week, I got two great compliments from men about our Style Kit.

The other day I ran into Robert Palma, the jewelry designer who with jeweler Dale Cripps very generously donated the sapphire-diamond pendant prize for our last workshop. Robert and his wife, Kyoko, are in the process of buying a new home and Kyoko has started watching the DVD and spending a lot of time on that and loving it! Robert told me that he examined the Style Kit thoroughly and was blown away by the packaging and detail. It meant a lot to me, coming from someone who has to pay such close attention to detail.

And recently I talked to Nelson Oyadomari, whose girlfriend Kay Mukaigawa came to our workshop and told him how great it was. One day he popped in the DVD at his office. He said, I can’t believe it. As a guy, normally I can’t sit through these things for long. But people walking by his door saw the DVD playing and stopped in and started watching, and everybody raved and had great comments about the quality. As a matter of fact, Nelson is leaving on a business trip today and says he’s planning to take Discs 2 and 3 along to watch on the plane!

So thanks, guys!
