Can’t forget my day job.

I don’t know that I go too much into my daily activities while working at iLoveToCreate much but I wanted to show you a little snippit of the type of projects I do on a daily basis that I spotted while at Hancock Fabrics recently….signage for our Tulip® Paint Section.

I am always working on something new, whether it be concepting and collaborating on ads, tradeshow design, or social media. Since I’ve been there only a little over a year, just now am I starting to see actual packaging that I have created materialize. I still can’t share or show you cause it’s still another few months before it will even be in stores! Contrary to what you might think, the process of a product getting into your hands at the store takes a lot longer than you would think. We have lots of people on our design, decorating, and marketing teams that make the packaging, signage, and communication that you see in stores. And on top of that, there’s another level of sales, manufacturing & production, and distribution to go through, not just at our company, but on a store level. So, I’m just one part of a very big puzzle.

So yeah, it’s kinda crazy. But I like it that way and there’s always a new challenge with a cool solution in the end.

And on a totally random and unrelated note, here’s a cute Pixiecat photo!!


Until next time Swellions!

    Cute kitty 🙂

    Way back when hub and I graduated from college, he worked as an artist for an needlecraft company. He would talk about the designs he created and it would be months or even years before we actually saw them on the rack at our local craft store. The funny thing is though that one of his designs was still being sold until a few years ago; so it had a long run of about 15 years.

    Have a nice weekend 🙂
