Happy Friday! As promised, we’re continuing on with our Meet the Staff series today. We’d like to introduce Marisol!
She has been part of the One Small Child family for 8 months. Working in the customer service department, she also makes all our jewelry. Marisol makes any task more enjoyable with her cheerful attitude and friendliness. She has a great work ethic and a very adventurous side!
We asked Marisol:
What do you love about your job? The people I work with! They are just the best and the nicest!
Who is your fashion icon? I love the Khloe Kardashians style, but if we are keeping it classic I would have to say Audrey Hepburn.
What/where do you like to eat? I love going out to eat and trying new things, but nothing beats my momma’s kitchen!
What is something spectacular you have done? Give birth to my beautiful little girl Yaneli.

What is important to you? Definitely all my loved ones and always trying to maintain a positive outlook on life.
In what ways do you feel rich? Absolutely in the way of being blessed everyday to still have all my family along my side but most definitely such a wonderful husband and little girl.
What makes you smile? Anything. My mom has always told me that even a grain of sand would keep me entertained lol.
How do you re-charge after a long day? At this point in my life there is nothing that will re-charge me more than a power nap.
If you could create a holiday, what would it be for and what would you call it? It would be for Shopping! It would just be national Shopaholic Day!
Where do you turn for comfort? God, there is nothing better than prayer.
What would you like to be famous for? I love doing makeup and hair, as well as styling different outfits! I would love to be famous for my creations on different people.

Happy Friday! We want to introduce you to all the wonderful employees that make One Small Child operate smoothly and successfully each day. We love each of these wonderful people – they are like family to us!
Without further ado, meet Christine – our head customer service representative! Christine started off as an inspector, and now answers phones and customer e-mails. She also handles our live website chat, our Etsy account and any other odd task we might throw her way! From ironing to shipping to website management, she’s always been willing to learn new tasks and performs them meticulously. Christine is so fun to work with, and carries a cheery attitude with her every day!
We asked Christine:
How long have you worked at One Small Child? About 2 years.
What do you love about your job? The employers are great to work with. I absolutely LOVE all the ladies I work with everyday, and the special projects I get to work on in between chatting with customers. I have learned to so much working on them!
Share a fun work memory…Halloween is always fun around here; everyone goes all out with the costumes and you never know what creepy thing you are going to walk into that day.
What is your dream vacation? Europe, there is so much history there.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Exercise, read a good book, take a bubble bath, Paint my toenails, basically anything I can think of to pamper myself.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Fly, so I could travel the world and experience all the cultures in it.
If you could be someone else for a week, who would you be? An actress. It would be great to have someone else do my hair and makeup and have a reason to wear crazy-cool costumes.
What is the scariest thing you have ever done? Flying half way across the world to Fiji and leaving my little ones home. It was scary to be that far away from my kids and to go to a place I knew nothing about, but the trip was amazing!
What makes you smile? Watching my husband and kids be goofy together.
How do you re-charge after a long day? Put on headphones, turn up my favorite music and zumba. There is just something about thoroughly enjoying music that makes me feel like I have energy again.
What is your favorite One Small Child product? If I had to narrow it down it would be the silk outfits, I think the off white luster of the material gives the outfits a beautiful vintage look.
Every once in a while we enjoy reminiscing with fun oldpictures. We found some cute snapshots of Easter memories, and stumbled upon one of our previous Easter dresses! Meet McKenzie: she’s now the head fabric cutter here at One Small Child, but she was once a Fluff n’ Twirl girl (more on that name later). This adorable photo features our cutting queen in a pretty pink dress from 1996. We just had to share!
