Change

I'm not a friend of change when it comes to favorite designer leaving!

Backing up a bit, I've managed the creative department of a small toy company for about 6 years. In that time I've hired some fantastic women that I absolutely adore. Over the years I've brought them in directly from college and watched them grow professionally and one by one they leave when an exciting career opportunity comes along. I'm so happy to see them take these leaps forward but so sad because there is always a void when they leave.

My last girl worked with me for almost 5 years and today is her last day. I may sulk for awhile and drag my feet about filling her spot because it's really hard to find an equal.
