An Intern's Perspective

Hello Daily Grommet Readers!

Myself (left) with former Intern (now permanent hire) Julia

Since this is my first blog post, I want to take this chance to introduce myself. I’m Claire, the Daily Grommet’s newest summer intern. You may have seen me in the previous blog post about moving day. Like Julia, I am an industrial designer from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia (just a little further back in my career than she is). I first heard about the Daily Grommet when Jules (I’m sure prompted in part by Julia) decided to take a trip down to Savannah back in October to check out SCAD and what it has to offer. I got to attend a lecture given by Jules about the Daily Grommet; I was immediately drawn to the variety of products offered as well as the individual attention each of them is given. They even decided to feature a product by a SCAD student - a clock by furniture student Charles Heydinger.  After watching the Daily Grommet since the fall and reading the blog, it has been such an amazing experience for me as an intern to be given a look behind the scenes. It’s fascinating to experience the day to day running of a company like Daily Grommet; I have only been here a week and already I feel as if I have learned so much in such short a time!

    I just wanted to comment on the PossibiliTree! I have sent the video to all of my family!! My daughter suffer from sever asthma. We couldn't figure out why she would always get sick at Christmas. We put our tree up on my moms birthday Dec 15 and by Christmas eve my daughter would be in the hospital. The Doctor didn't figure it out until she was 3. When he did I came home before Christmas and carried the tree out into the back yard. I then sat and tried to figure out what to have for a tree. The PossibiliTree is so close to our PVC piping tree we had back then ( my daughter will be 30 this year) It made me laugh with good memories!!! For the first 2 years every time my daughter saw a gardener with pipe she would ask why he was putting up a Christmas tree in summer. I take sever teasing about my tree but we loved it! The ornaments hung perfect because the spacing was perfect.
    Whe my daughter turned 12 we finally started changing to other non traditional trees we designed together, but our PVC tree was put up in the yard until she got married!! Thanks for the memories! And I may buy one for Christmas ask a reminder of old times!! love it!
