When I was in 8th Grade, my Mom started teaching 2nd Grade at my school. I thought it was the best thing to ever happen to me! I would rush to her classroom every day to help after school. My favorite task was working on her bulletin boards. I would have GRAND visions of what to create and my mom would often look at me puzzled. She had a hard time envisioning what I was talking about, but trusted me (even at that young of age) to make it a reality. I've held onto that trust and the knowledge that not everyone is creative. The flip side of that is the person who has ideas, but doesn't have the time (or patience!) to implement them. Many of my Old Southern Charm clients fall into these two categories, just like my Mom. I work one on one with each and every person to ensure their creative vision becomes a reality. In eighth grade, I didn't yet have the tools to show my mom "the plan", but with today's technology, I am able to create digital proofs and "Style Boards" that depict a design strategy in its entirety. This has been a huge help for non-creatives and has met a need many people have to see a side-by-side comparison.
Over the course of 10 years in business, Old Southern Charm has become a "One-Stop Hospitality Shop", providing many of the essentials that usually take two or three separate stops. As a mom of young kiddos, I know how hard it is to get everything done. There’s no better feeling than being able to hand these items off to someone else! Providing helpful services to my clients, plus the bonus of sharing my artwork with a larger audience, has been very rewarding. Just like those 2nd Grade bulletin boards, the end results always make the hard work worth it!
Thanks for the learning a little about me. Can't wait to learn more about you and your next project! Please feel free to email me with questions or just reach out to brainstorm together at firstname.lastname@example.org.
