Design Teams

Saturday, January 8, 2011


I am so excited!  We received our first assignment from The Lime Light!  It is for Parents Club Inc. located in Oklahoma.  The CEO of the company is Barb Countz, a friend of one of our designers.  Barb runs a series of stores in southern Oklahoma to help people that need help! They are thrift stores that take in donated items... but if people are flat, and can't pay for what they need, she allows them to work at the rate of $8/hour, and then use that for clothes, shoes, etc. on items in the store.  She's quite strict about it, if they can't pay, they are not able to work for 'frivolous' things... just the necessities.  

We were asked to do all sorts of items such as birthday cards, magnetic picture frames, bookmarks, note pads, check book covers, grocery pads...  The store also gets a lot of regular customers, so these items are quite popular.  I am having so much fun making bookmarks!  I really enjoyed working with the beads, endless possibilities there.  My New Year's Resolution was to try new types of paper crafting and I am off and running!  I have never made them before so it has been great trying something new!  A friend of mine saw them today and wants to order some as gifts!
