Hi! Welcome to C. Creative!
I'm Carolyn - the face behind the operation and the C in C. Creative.
I'm also the owner, designer, artist, bookkeeper, office manager, janitor, shipping department...
it's a one woman show around here and I wear a lot of hats.
How I got here...
Two weeks before I was supposed to start my senior year of college, I accepted a dream job opportunity in NYC working in fashion. That opportunity led to other jobs I couldn't turn down,
and several years on and off in New York.
In 2016 I moved back to my home state of North Carolina and graduated from UNC Chapel Hill. After graduating, I continued working in fashion doing design and production for a men's clothing company. In 2018, I took a chance with a local start up as a project manager.
By 2019, the start up went under. In the blink of an eye, the job I loved was gone.
I was shell shocked and had no clue what my next move would be.
While job hunting, I dove head-first into my creative side.
In August of 2019 I was designing my first invitations and by the end of that year
I made the decision to go all in and make C. Creative my full time job.
Running a business has been the hardest yet most rewarding thing I've ever done.
The fact that I get to do something I love every day is still crazy to me.
Thank you for following along, and for allowing me to dream big.
