Our interns have a crash course in glittering

This year, at MSLO, we have 51 summer interns across 33 departments.  Our interns come from all over the country and even from places as far away as Korea!  This summer, I have had the pleasure of having two of those interns work with me -  Emily, a student at Syracuse University, and Christina, a student at the University of Scranton.  They have been busy doing a variety of projects in our Bedford offices, as well as attending intern events at our offices in New York City.  I recently asked them to report on one of these events.

As you know, we are really into glitter and our summer interns were taught how to glitter various designs on everything from shirts and aprons, to canvas bags and coin purses.  The course was conducted by Hannah Milman, Executive Editorial Director of Crafts and Holiday.  This is the very same project that is being demonstrated at Beaches resorts.  It was a fun experience for our interns and everyone seemed to enjoy it.  The trainees were pleased with their final products – they turned once simple shirts and other ordinary items into works of art!  The glitter adds beautiful sparkle to almost anything.  Please enjoy these photos taken by my intern, Emily.
