Clip Art Designs is formally MarloDee Designs.
In 2002, Marlo (me) was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had been working as an accountant for a small medical company in Worthington, Ohio. But, then I started to realize that I was not able to continue doing what I love - working with numbers. I had to leave a job I loved and take some time to figure out what I was going to do next.
After taking some time off - I started to get "cabin fever" and needed to find something to do and fast. I started with Bear North Gifts/Minnesota Exposure in 2004. We (my husband at the time) started with various different company concepts and ideas. From selling auction style products to cellphone accessories. One day while selling products on a popular auction website, I discovered that "dressing up" auctions to attract customers was a good idea. But, where do we find attractive auction templates. That was the day that my life changed.
After learning HTML code on my own - I started to create auction templates to not only sell our products, but to sell those templates to others. Then I started to do basic web design, creating websites for a variety of businesses - like Hair Pups http://hairpups.com/.
Then the day came where designing websites required to find unique graphics to be able to use. Years ago there were not very many artists that allowed this type of use. But, I did find a few. Those artists then started to offer options of becoming their resellers. And, so I decided I wanted to offer customers (like myself) a place where they could find a unique selection of graphics to use for their small businesses. (or personal crafting projects)
And so then MarloDee Designs was born in 2008. MarloDee Designs has grown into 23 websites of offering so many different products. In the spring of 2015, I decided to close down MarloDee Designs (even though the domain name is still active and points to Clip Art Designs) and open Clip Art Designs in it's place. I do plan on re-opening MarloDee Designs in the fall or winter of 2015 where I will be offering only products from MarloDee Designs. But for now, MarloDee Designs is now Clip Art Designs.
