I am Marilyn,although most people call me Maz, I became a designer with wasc about 19/20 months ago.I have always written poetry,since I was 8 or 9 years old writing for family and friends. Later in life I added a few designs, framed my poetry and started selling them.
I have also written for Blue Mountain Arts an American greeting card company. I have worked as a manager in various greeting card shops. Sometimes writing personal requests for the customers if they couldn't find a verse or card they liked in the shop. I ended up writing upon request.
Then in 2009 I lost my 18 year old son Ryan to brain cancer.He loved to help people,so to keep his memory alive I founded Angel Children along with my daughter Gemma,it is a not for profit organisation where we purchase and supply free of charge, headstones,give financial help and comfort gifts to parents who have lost their children. Funds permitting of course.
I joined we all send cards as a way to help me raise much needed funds.As each time one of my cards gets sold 100% of all profits earned goes direct to Angel Children.
I create various cards although I started off mainly designing memorial cards.But now I have designed many greeting cards for all occasions. Various people who know me often ask if I can design a personal card especially for them,which I can and do, do,
We all send cards enables me to do this and prints my cards for me,that I then give to my customers.
