From the Bottom of My Heart


Thank you to everyone who checked out Rue Magazine. For all the outpourings of kind words and support. To those who helped make it happen. And to my wonderful, inspiring team. I couldn't have asked for a better debut than yesterday.

Have a lovely weekend my dears. I'm off to NYC tonight for a few appointments, events, and photo shoots. Feeling grateful to be heading back to that magical city and looking forward to the plane ride where I can retire the laptop and the iphone for a few hours while amidst the clouds.

xo,
Crystal

Crystal, You should be so proud. The premiere issue was just BEYOND. Thank you for putting so much into it! Savor these next few days in NY. We can't wait for the next issue!

Debra Phillips said...

i have a feeling crystal you will be "in the clouds" for a long time to come.

this issue was shockingly good. i say that because this was a premier issue, a first go, a new venture and the design world is giddy with excitement. an excitement we have not felt for a very long time.

as you continue to reach for the stars, enjoy the ride and thank you for taking us along!

Crystal, congratulations!! It took me a while to catch on as to what exactly you've been working on (from following your FB feed), but...this is OUTSTANDING. So, so gorgeous. Good work!!!! And CONGRATS! (We just moved back to WA from CT, and...I miss NYC, especially Chinatown. Go find a bun and eat it for me, ya? ;-))

Fabulous magazine. I found it original and different from the others. I've been eyeing this mirror for a few weeks now, not sure if to buy it. Then I saw it on page 254, and now I know I have to buy it. I love the way it looks in this room.

You're Rue?! Awesome. I've been meaning to read it, but haven't had the time to devote to my computer, rue and a cup of tea. I want to be open to the inspiration rather than reading on the run. Can't wait! I've very much been enjoying your work, so I'm sure I'll love Rue.
