It’s time to head over to the Sales Team to meet the lovely, bubbly and ever so crafty Katie! Find out about her role within the company, her crafty Youtube channel and what she would do with a million pounds (oooh!)
How long have you been at Trimcraft?
I have been with Trimcraft just under a year.
What is your job role within the company?
I am a sales executive. I am lucky enough to manage some of the accounts of the independent account holder we have.
What's your favourite part of working within a team?
By far the support and laughs. When you have a good day you can share it with them, and on the bad days, let’s be honest we all have them, there is always someone to keep you smiling and lighten the load. I spend more time in the week with the people I work with than with my husband, so it helps that they are a great bunch!
What’s the best thing about working for Trimcraft?
Being immersed in the creativity and getting to use all the amazing products. I am also very lucky to work with some awesome people.
What is your favourite Trimcraft product, why?
My favourite Trimcraft product is the beautiful papers, they are just exquisite. The quality is second to none and my favourite paper pad currently is Wild Flower, the colours are just so inspiring and elegant.
What is an average day like at Trimcraft?
With working in sales, each day is different. Which for me is great as its means that it never gets boring. From when I get in the morning, there are emails to respond to, phone calls to take and accounts to work with, orders to be taken and craft products to be sold. Each day has its own challenges and I am really lucky to have a job where I get to sell products that I adore to lovely people who enable other to create and delight with them.
What are your favourite hobbies? Crafting, Crafting and did I mention crafting? I love scrapbooking, I am planner obsessed and I love any excuse to make a homemade gift or decoration.
I have my own YouTube channel and blog, the Little Craft Cave . I also love getting lost in a great classic novel and I love to write.
What inspires you to craft?
Life, I love recording the moments that make me want to stop and be in them forever. I also think craft is a great therapy, with having such a busy job, it’s nice to have time to stop and create. I love that you can take such simple object like paper, glue and stickers and turn into something magical. I also like to make gifts, I think handmade gifts are so much more personal and thoughtful, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the joy on someone’s face when they receive a gift you’ve made.
What 3 words would best describe you?
Happy, Talkative and thoughtful.
If you had a million pounds how would you spend it?
I would set up my own craft therapy workshops business, buy a house with a whole floor for my craft room and treat my amazing Husband to his own Ale brewery.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us?
I once danced at the Royal Albert Hall, for her majesty Queen Elizabeth.
