I Work With Color

I've been a bad blogger, but let me tell you why. Over the past months, my life took a turn for the worst and then for the best, the word crazy would be an understatement, and as corny as it may sound, it really has been a rollercoaster.

The biggest news so far is that I got a job at The Gymboree Corporation (if you guys don't know what that is, seriously, fashion isn't just for women) as a Colorist for the Crazy 8 brand (yes, it's under Gymboree as well) wherein I handle the colors for both Girl and Boy Undies, Kid Boy, Baby Boy, and their Newborn lines.
If you know me personally, you would know that I'm a workaholic, especially if I love my job. And I LOVE my new job. I am so blessed to have been able to get a job at a great company that takes care of its employees and wherein I get to do what I love.

If you're wondering what a Colorist is, it's literally someone who deals with color. The designers choose the colors, however, I'm in the Production Department making sure that the colors that the factories/vendors send us back match the standard colors we chose. In simple terms, quality control. And yes, I basically look at colors all day; different fabrics, clothes, prints, and sometimes even accessories (mostly just shoes since boys don't really have a lot of accessories).
It's been a busy month, but I think things should settle down soon as I'm getting used to how the flow is with my new job, and then soon I'll be able to blog more frequently again! Hope everyone is doing well!
