It was a good week.

It started off in Hawaii -- always the start to a good week.

Next I was informed that the National Garden Festival, of which I co-founded, and help to organize, is to receive a tourism award.

I was asked to write a blurb for the back cover of a book on garden tourism.

Three "Hearts in the Gardens" posters were purchased online and mailed out to Sacramento,  Montana and another locally.

Next week I'm going to NYC for a garden tourism "press junket" with Sally Cunningham, we have appointments, so far, with Traditional Home and This Old House magazines.

I was notified I am to receive an advertising industry award, a major award akin to a lifetime achievement award " recognize outstanding achievement and service in the communications industry with a record of achievement over an extended period of time, which includes contributions to the industry and the community."

I'm busier work-wise than I've ever been, working on an annual report, a university viewbook, corporate standards manuals, ad campaigns for home developers, corporate branding project for a CPA firm, multiple museum exhibition programs, newsletters, invitations, direct marketing postcards, two logos and more. This first quarter of 2013 I may invoice more than my first year of employment.

And then last night I went to see the stage musical of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

It was a very good week.


  1. I'll say you had a good week. Enjoy it.

  2. Heart-y congratulations, Jim. You deserve every bit of that recognition. And the holiday, too.

  3. Outstanding!! And congrats on a well deserved award!
