Paying it forward from one creator to another!
More on Cre8ive Crayonz and the link between Stacy & Dylan...
At the beginning of the pandemic, Susan was furloughed from her job in the fashion industry, so she was home with her then 5-year-old, now 6-year old, daughter searching for fun activities they could do together.
She, like Stacy, has always been creative…and they both even designed their own prom dresses!
Being stuck inside reignited her crafty/artistic side and her daughter and her started making unique crayons out of new and old, broken crayons. She is now her “Cre8ive Director” and helps to choose colors just like Dylan has been part of Stacy’s mask and chain collaborations.
Question From Stacy to Susan: What a full circle moment for us. How has it been starting a business during a global pandemic?
"Scary, crazy and EXCITING! I have been working in fashion for over 25 years so the thought of doing something different and starting a NEW business in such an uncertain time was SCARY! Because I live in Hoboken I thought it would be well received because it is a very family oriented and supportive community. The response has been amazing not just locally but from others around the U.S. and working on different Collaborations and getting into some Kids Holiday gift guide has been exciting and Crazy! NEVER did I think from our daily craft projects with Jessie during the pandemic would lead me to where I am today!"
Question From Dylan to Jessie: Favorite color combination or quote made with crayons?
"I think it is...a pretty hard question. I like the rainbow combination it makes pretty rainbows."
Question from Stacy & Dylan to Susan & Jessie: What is on your playlist when you are making the crayons?
"Rain On Me, Savage Love, What Does The Fox Say?, Dynamite.... we LOVE Kidz Bop & take dance breaks in between baking & popping them from the molds..."
