By day, we’re marketing geeks. Computer nerds. Quirky writers and artists. And damn proud of it!
But after hours, our team members shed their marketing capes – and pursue all kinds of cool Hobbies, Interests and Talents (we call them HITs for short).
Here’s what Tiffany Shoemaker, Haley Marketing’s Director of Client and Product Support, is into:
HIT: Being “Crafty”
I come from a long line of crafty people. My father and grandfather own a furniture upholstery business, and my aunt sells her creations at craft shows. She’s so talented, she even used to make my Halloween costumes.
I always dabbled in craft projects, too, but my beautiful daughter, Isla, brought out my crafty side. Once she started school, I was faced with a variety of situations that required customized costumes and gifts.
What do I love most about craft projects?
My daughter loves the attention her costumes and crafts create for her. When I make a costume for her to wear, she feels special – and that makes both of us happy!
Being crafty is also the perfect foil to my role as HMG’s Director of Client and Product Support. The projects I take on nurture a creative side to me which I sometimes forget I have.
The dangerous side of crafting…
We had a dangerous plant called giant hogweed (no joke) growing in the field outside of our offices here at Haley Marketing. It was my job to coordinate its removal. So naturally, I created a giant hogweed costume and wore it to work that Halloween.
