Behind The Scenes..The Team at Confections Part 2

Posted July 29, 2011


Our staff is made up of some super talented people.  One of our designers, Allison is our featured team member today.

I'm Allison....Something I both love and hate about myself is that I’m a perfectionist. Whatever I’m working on I take extra care and time to make sure everything is exactly right…sometimes too much time! It’s a good quality to have, though - if you can rein it in - especially as a designer. This way I know that everything I design and produce is accurate and hopefully exactly what the client is looking for!


What is your position at Confections?

I am a graphic designer.


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

I was born and raised in Saline, MI. Now I live in Cordova where my husband and I just bought a house! I miss my family in Michigan, but love getting to know a new area and new people. It’s always good to expand your horizons ;)


Family? (married, children, pets?)

I am married to my best friend and partner in crime, Patrick. We celebrated our one year anniversary on May 16, and it’s been a great first year! We don’t have kids yet, but that spot is filled by our lovely black cat, Moses. We’re also planning on rescuing a dog soon, which will be a ton of fun!


What is your favorite hobby or sport?

I LOVE to read. I’m finally getting back into it…in fact I just purchased the Chronicles of Narnia, so that I can catch up with the rest of the world!


What is something you always keep in your car?

I always have a sleeping bag. You just never know when you’ll get the opportunity to spend the night somewhere neat…or have a picnic!


How long have you worked at Confections by Shara’s Paperie?

I’ve worked here since February 2011


What are 3 things you keep on your desk?

colorful markers, water bottle and a cute notebook


What is your favorite product from the Confections line?

My favorite product from the Confections line has got to be our stationery. I just love sending out personal notes to encourage people or to say thank you for something someone else has done. It beats an email or text message any day!


What is your favorite color combination?

My favorite color combination is a deep plum purple with a fresh lime green, which of course were our wedding colors.


What is your favorite type of product to design?

My favorite type of product to design is any sort of event invitation. I love working with someone to create the perfect way to announce their event with style!


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

I’d have to say the variety of work along with the creative freedom I have here as a designer. It means the world to me to be able to come up with fresh designs for our new cutting board line and then turn around and create an invitation. I never get bored, which makes it very fun!
