If you are a fan of my Certified International collection called Tex Mex, and have been searching for more of this design, you might have learned that it has been retired. This was a top selling collection, however in the world of casual dinnerware many patterns have a very short life span, so if you like a design it is always best to purchase it when you discovery it. I understand that in these economic times, it might not always be affordable to purchase things that we love the moment we see them.
The good news is you have some time to think about this purchase, the approximate delivery date for this collection is March 2012.
This is a sneak peek of the collection. The kind product development folks over at CIC shared the pictures with me from the showroom. They did a great job on the display. Thanks so much Certified !
I have been working on this for quite some time with Certified International. Although the designs are different then Tex Mex, they actually marry very well with the Tex Mex, you can mix and match this new collection in with your Tex Mex pattern and create a very fun look. If you like this new collection I would love to hear from you, and if you have any suggestions of what other products you would like to see this on other than ceramic tabletop I would love your thoughts. Thanks everyone who purchases my designs I greatly appreciate you, for you are the reason I am able to earn a living from my designs.

Creating handmade items
I encourage those creating handmade sewing projects from my fabric to sell on the web, craft shows and the like. I love handmade items. However, if you are a person planning to mass produce products using my designs (whether fabrics or incorporating any of my other artwork or products) that would require a license from me. Please contact me direct.
Thanks, Sue Zipkin
