I wear many hats. Doing so is a like going on a first day every day, however, product development/gift design is my first and true love. Halloween and Garden are my favorite. I love creating the shape, format, and concept for a new gift as well as generating illustrations, setting type, and choosing colors that will help it jump off the gift shop shelves. The industry took a hit with the bad economy, but I think it's back on track now.
I've been around the world... and I always come back to it. ahhhhh.
