CL Family Spotlight: The Slate Lady

CL Family Spotlight: The Slate Lady

Happy Friday to all of our readers, customers, and CL family! This week we are getting to know Dina, aka The Slate Lady!    Please tell us the story of your business... My business came to be back in 1989 when I decided to try and turn my passion for painting into a source of income so that I could work at home while raising my son. Like many artists, I had given countless paintings to friends and family, so I thought "why not try and sell a few"?  And that's exactly what I did.  I sent pictures of my artwork into...

CL Family Spotlight: All My Lovin'

This week's CL Family Spotlight is on All My Lovin', a business that got started with one gift and the discovery of a hidden talent. Tell us a little more about All My Lovin' ...

CL Family Spotlight: VIP Wear

CL Family Spotlight: VIP Wear

VIP Wear Ltd. is really a story of life-long inspiration... I have always loved drawing, designing and fashion. I didn't take it seriously until later in high school, though. VIP Wear was originally called Ground Zero, but when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11, I chose to change the name. There have been a lot of trials and tribulation to get to where I am now, but I think that believing in God and myself means that the sky is the limit. What do you like to do when you aren't busy designing your clothing? When I'm not busy taking care...
