Life has a tendency of challenging us. The last few weeks have certainly been a testament to that! The heat, construction delays and tough assignments can be tricky to juggle. Hopefully we can look forward to a little quiet before the fall. If you follow me on Instagram @pompandsass you will have noticed my recent absence. I took a break to help my mother, Rosemarie, launch her business. It’s a wonderful B&B nestled into a hill, driving distance from Toronto. Setting up the branding, website and booking tools took a lot of time. Investing in others is important to me. Although I missed designing, it was well worthwhile. See www.highviewbnb.com to see what I’m talking about.As a thank you for my help, Rosemarie gave me an iPad Pro! This wonderful tool will allow me to create designs on the go as well as share my process with you. Once I have a handle on the apps I will once again be an active participant in your Instagram feed. Yay! stay tuned for when I return to social media in the fall. There will be videos, behind the scenes pictures and contests! If you aren’t already, be sure to follow along on Instagram or Facebook @pompandsass See you there!Nikky StarrettFounder & Designer at Pomp & SassPS: Textile designs are always available to you.
