Confectious Concoctions

About Me

Hi! I’m Chelsea (you can call me Chels if you want). I am 27, and I work at Barkley in Kansas City, MO. You’ve probably heard of some of our clients, like Sonic Drive-In, Blue Bunny, 24 Hour Fitness, yadda yadda yadda. But, before I got a “grown-up” job and “grown-up” bills, I spent four really great years at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I graduated in May, 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Journalism in Advertising from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. I also fully admit that I was a band geek and was a member in the Cornhusker Marching Band all four years as well. I played piccolo in case you were wondering. Now, when I’m not working, I’m also very active with AAF-Kansas City and ad2, the special interest of the Club for members age 32 and under.

I’m a Midwest sort of girl, having grown up in Ames, Iowa (yes I was a traitor to my family when I went to UNL instead of ISU). I think most prominent aspects that readily and pointedly describe the Midwest is the work ethic and the unsolicited friendliness, and that’s what I truly appreciate and take pride in being from this region.

When I’m not at work or doing industry-related things, I’m probably sewing, cooking, baking, or running (wow, when you put it on-screen, I sound like Joan Cleaver, except for the running part…). I really do get joy out of making a mess in the kitchen, attempting to dirty as many bowls, mixer blades, spoons, pots and pans as possible, and working with my hands to make something tangible, edible, and hopefully delicious. The running bit is to balance it out.

So, you’re wondering what this blog is all about. Well, it’s going to be about a lot, but more than likely I will be sharing tips and thoughts, trials and successes of my hobbies, from sewing and baking to fitness.

I do have a serious interest in advertising from a media standpoint, whether that be social, digital, alternative, or even traditional. I think, and I could be argued against, is that finding the right people is one of the, if not the, most important challenge in advertising. My thought is, whatever the message , if you aren’t reaching the right person, the message is wasted, whether it’s spot-on strategically, or clear as mud. So I’ll try share some of the interesting and relevant things I learn along the way.

Sound good? Alright then. Let’s dirty some dishes.
