Hi! I’m Christy, the Owner and Creative Director behind Creative in Bloom, LLC.and a BFA graduate of Indiana University, Herron School of Art Indianapolis, Indiana. Honored to receive multiple talent grants to attend Herron, I still feel it was one of the most creatively inspiring 4 years of my life. I jumped right into advertising after graduation. Back then, you would've found me in roles of designer, creative director and creative services manager over the course of my 13 years employed by ad agencies outside of Chicago and Indianapolis. I'm the proud recipient of several design awards, among them being the prestigious Addy Award. Upon the birth of my only child, my daughter, I found myself wanting more. That is when my husband and I took a huge leap of faith to start my dream business, Creative in Bloom. This decision allowed me to work toward my dream all while raising my new baby and I’ve never looked back!
I'm a true romantic and a true artist. I absolutely love every minute of what I do. The reactions from my customers however, bring me the greatest joy. Creating something so meaningful to them; a product that I hope will be an heirloom piece, is just so special and heartwarming. Often it’s the first time they’ve seen their names together in print. I’ve witnessed tears of joy. It’s a very special thing for me to get to share in that.
