Never before has turning out the lights been so much fun!
How it all began...
What started out as hand painted Christmas presents for my 10 nieces and nephews in 1989, soon became a "must have" gift for each new baby and many family friends. The kids all loved the glowing designs and helped some conquer their fear of the dark!
For the next few years I continued to design and hand paint pillowcases when I wasn't at my "day job".
Finally, in 1994, I decided to create my own company and began Comfy Cozy, inc. with my sister, Clare (without her hard work this business would never have gotten off the ground). At that time we started hand screen printing our designs. This process makes the designs soft to the touch, machine washable, consistent high quality and durable enough to last a lifetime.
My objectives have always been to: * create designs that motivate and inspire kids & adults * help little ones to not be afraid of the dark * turn everyday items into exciting gifts for today and a keepsake to be cherished for years to come.
While Comfy Cozy is still a home-based business, our products have appeared in national catalogs, including Femail Creations. We have created Custom Designs for organizations such as Susan G. Komen and corporations including Mary Kay Cosmetics & Grant Thornton along with local schools, churches and scout troops.
Now a little background...I was born & raised in St. Albans, West Virginia. Graduated from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!) with a Degree in Merchandising. I then became a Children's Buyer for Dillard Department Store in Little Rock, AR. From there I moved to St. Louis, MO and spent 5 years as National Sales Manager for Wee Ones, Inc., Children's Accessories. Since 1995, I have been in eastern Pennsylvania.
My wonderful husband Scott, loving parents and family have encouraged me to follow my dream and keep the faith! Being a WAHM (work at home mom) has enabled me to "be there" every minute for my 2 sons.
I love my family, my life and my business. I hope you will fall in love with my products and order them for the special people in your life.
