This is Fred Ball for Zions bank, speaking on business.
Carolee McMullin is busy. She and her husband Corey are raising five children, working on their farm and living in the scenic Cache Valley. Carolee is also designing unique and creative scrapbook accessories that have become popular throughout the state, the nation and even other countries, as well.
She began 15 years ago. As an accomplished artist and painter, she started teaching decorative painting throughout the state and eventually published seven books on the subject. She also produced hundreds of pattern packets.
As Carolee's family grew, she began designing scrapbook papers and stickers. She soon added other artists and their designs to her own work, and six years ago, formed her own companyÑCarolee's Creations.
Her scrapbook papers, stationery and stickers range from charming and warm to sunny and funny. Her designs reflect her artistic flair, her unending creativity, her fondness for country art and often her sense of humor. They are designs that scrapbooking enthusiasts won't find from other manufacturers.
Carolee's Creations offers hundreds of beautiful background and foreground papers, cut-outs, stickers, stationery, cards, art prints and gifts. Her eye for color and design is prominent in each paper, and she updates her designs regularly to reflect the current trends in the scrapbook industry and her own continuous flow of new ideas.
Carolee and her husband Corey also design and produce handmade rustic metal art sculptures that can be used as accents in home and garden dŽcor. The sculptures carry a country style. Carolee and Corey construct them from high-quality, heavy-gauge metal, naturally rusted and then sealed with a clear coat finish.
Carolee distributes her creations to 100 scrapbooking stores and craft shops throughout the state. She also runs a small retail store in Cache Valley and a web siteÑcarolees.comÑwhere she's fulfilled orders to clients living around the world. With her family and popular business, life couldn't be busier or better for Carolee.
