Behind The Scenes..The Team at Confections Part 3

Posted August 5, 2011

No doubt that part of what makes Confections as fabulous as it is would be the staff.  Our creative team is always coming up with new ideas for designs, patterns, illustrations and products.  Today's featured team member is Lauren.

I absolutely love designing! It became a hobby of mine after taking a digital imaging class in college and has stuck with me since then. I’m so glad I found a design position at Confections that allows me to use my creativity to make others happy!

What is your position at Confections?

Graphic Designer

Where were you born, and where do you live now?

 I was born here in Memphis, and I’ve been here ever since.

Family? (married, children, pets?)

I am not married, but have been with my boyfriend, Anthony, for five and a half years. We have a Jack Russell terrier (might as well be a child!) named Casanova. He is the love of our lives and he knows it!

What is your favorite hobby or sport?

I played soccer from the age of 4 up until my second year of college. It’s my favorite sport to play, but my favorite to watch is basketball… I’m a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan! I also like painting, drawing, and photography.

What is something you always keep in your car?

 I rarely keep anything in my car. I’m a little OCD about keeping the inside of my car clean. However, there is a turquoise dream catcher that I have had since I was 16 that hangs from my rearview mirror.

How long have you worked at Confections

 I have been working here since June of 2011

What are 3 things you keep on your desk?

 I always have my cell phone, a cup with some sort of drink and a pen on my desk.

What is your favorite product from the Confections line?

 I like the new magnetic dry erase boards from the Confections line. They were one of the first products that I got to create designs for.

What is your favorite color combination?

 My favorite color is turquoise or some variation. So, I’m generally fond of anything that has turquoise in it.

What is your favorite type of product to design?

Invitations!

What is your favorite thing about working at Confections by Shara’s Paperie?

I love that I’m able to use my creativity every day, and that things are always changing. You never do the same thing twice here!
