One of the things that happens on a daily basis here at iLoveToCreate, are the photo shoots with models, products, and projects. Scott, our photography/videographer (and my hubby) set up a shoot for our December t-shirt of the month in the manufacturing/bottling facilities this week.
Our models were perfect with their houndstooth pattern t-shirts with gradient dye, up against the black drums. I designed the shirts and thought it would be great to have an edgy background for the shoot. I loved it!
After Megumi (one of the models) changed clothes, we discovered that in the storage area was a poster she had modeled for 6 years ago! She flipped out, and I couldn't wait to get a cute pic of her posing with the poster. Too funny!
As you can see in these pics, our plant is huge, and we had to wear protective glasses and closed toed shoes to walk around.
Check this out. It's one of the glue vats being mixed with a humungous mixer about the size of my little car.
We have tons of mannequins awaiting another trade show, and big drums of paint.
The bottling area was humming away, and there were rows of plaster waiting to become bisque pieces for our ceramics division of products.
I'm fascinated by the conveyor belts of bottles, and huge drums of paint and glue being pumped into spray bottles and squeeze bottles before it gets labels and shipped to the stores.
Alexa, aka Swell Designer, is pretty fascinated too, I might say.... heehee.
But alas, it's just another day behind the scenes at iLoveToCreate!
