A company with social responsibility at the core

Just checking my Facebook account this afternoon and got an interesting link from an article in Advertising Age. We hope to be included and recognized among these companies some day since our goal (as mentioned in previous blogs) has always been sustainability. We are proud of the fact that we produce our artwork locally – within 13 miles of our office. We searched for a long time to find someone who could help us meet this goal...and they literally fell right into our laps! It has saved not only on our carbon footprint, but helps our local economy as well. We're also putting our artwork on bamboo plywood... a highly sustainable, eco-friendly product. See our previous posts on that also.

Cheers to these companies!

Everyone needs a little....INSPIRATION!

Was just listening to Kari Jobe's song “Everyone Needs a Little” in the car on the way to the office this morning. This happens to be one of our favorite songs and we've listened to it a lot lately! We find a lot of inspiration not only in what is around us but in music, too. Close your eyes and listen!

A quote and a sponsorship...

Marybeth was recently quoted on April 2 by Six Sigma and Quality Improvement blogger Nadine Owens Burton at under “Small Business Shoulda Coulda Woulda’s.” Here's what Marybeth said:

“You’ve got your vision...your ‘pie in the sky’, but getting in front of retail people and getting yourself into a showroom is literally a dog-eat-dog world. You're fighting trying to make yourself completely different and stand out from the crowd so that people notice you. I think a lot of it is about networking and getting the most opinions -- good and bad -- from anybody you can. Once you go through the whole process for a while, what you originally envisioned might be completely different from what you end up with and that can be a very good thing sometimes!“

We're out to show potential wholesalers and retail buyers that Velvet Lime Designs is committed to quality, creative artwork and inspirational products. We’ve got a lot of new products in development and hope to release those within a few weeks. As always, we welcome any comments...good or bad!

Velvet Lime Designs is also a proud sponsor of the 1st Annual LUNAFEST® presented by Faith's House ( in Cumming, GA. We are happy to share some inspiration with single moms!
