The Giving Season at 3 Day Blinds Has Begun!

3 Day Blinds Design Consultant Kathy Trojan and one of the Hospice Scottsdale patients on Halloween – all dressed up!

With the first of November here at last, at 3 Day Blinds we like to remember to not only spread holiday cheer around the office, but also within the communities where we are represented by some of our fantastic Design Consultants and team members. 

A great example of this giving is shown by Kathy Trojan, one of our Design Consultants from Scottsdale, Arizona. Kathy spends a lot of her time volunteering at Hospice in Scottsdale. 

“As a volunteer it is my responsibility to visit the patients within the Hospice facility, some of whom are near the end of their lives,” said Kathy. “I sit and talk to them, we read books or magazines together, it’s really about whatever they need. The most important thing is that we have fun!” 

A lot of the volunteers at the Hospice center help out with painting, arts and crafts, and getting the patients dressed up for Halloween in their costumes.

A Hospice Volunteer and her dressed up companion for Halloween 2012“It’s really all about doing whatever we can do lift their spirits and give them life enjoyment. I always hear from them about how happy they are when I come to visit,” said Kathy. “It really gives me more pleasure knowing that I am helping to cheer them in some small way.” 

Last night, Halloween, Kathy and other volunteers (including one of her 3 Day Blinds clients!) went down to the Scottsdale Hospice in their costumes and handed out candy and helped to show the patients a festive time.

It is a pleasure for 3 Day Blinds to get involved in the local communities that we serve, and to bring smiles to everyone during this holiday season. 

Vampires, Athletes, Rock Stars?? It Must Be Halloween at 3 Day Blinds!

072Some of our creatively costumed team members here at 3 Day Blinds! #33 is Venita Campbell, who took 1st Place in the Individual Costume Competition.
At 3 Day Blinds we make a point to keep the workplace fun and festive. And boy was that never more evident than on Halloween 2012!

At our Corporate Headquarters in Irvine, CA the vampires, ghouls, and even Oompa Loompas came out in full force to celebrate the holiday when kids can be grown-ups, and grown-ups can be kids. Throughout the office, cubicles were decorated from top to bottom and team members arrived to work in some extremely creative costumes. The entire team was supplied with pizza for lunch and there were contests aplenty all over the office.

We had several contest winners, including the team of Witches in the Appointment Sales Division made up of Dian Capasso, NAncy Fast, Kellie Proschek and Cynthia Ramos – they took the award for the Best Cubicle Decorations.

076Some of the fantastic decorations that we saw around the office all day! These are our “Vampires” who took 2nd Place Overall.

There was a dessert contest – and it’s no surprise that Willy Wonka and his team of Oompa Loompa’s took first price with their chocolate fountain.

Willie Wonka and his Team of Oompa Loompas showed they know desserts by taking 1st in the contest!There was a questionnaire contest, with several people in the office tying for first place by guessing 12 of 13 questions right, and two of our team members (Dan Lyle and Darlene Fajardo) walked away with gift certificates (for more candy perhaps?) by turning in questionnaires with 100% perfect scores!

Other contests included guess the # of candies in the cauldrons, Ashley Ragland and Glendy Gamoba were the lucky winners. They got to take home cauldrons filled with over 100 pieces of candy each!

The creativity that all of our team members showed made Halloween 2012 in the ISC one for the record books. Rest assured, this creativity takes a completely different form when our local Design Consultants visit the homes and businesses of their clients.  In that scenario, they are using their creativity, along with expert product, technical and fashion knowledge to recommend the best window treatment solution.  Our clients are delighted with the outcome, and most of them report that they had fun in the process!

3-day-blinds-name-tags-Untitled - 3Since we have so many new faces, Executive Vice President Tikie Holewski decided we all should wear name badges.  Instead of issuing us boring name tags with bar codes and driver license quality photos, she empowered us to make our own, filling our small conference room with craft items, so that we could creatively show off our passions, hobbies, families, pets and favorite sports in a myriad of creative ways!
