So, you want to know a little bit about the most fabulous scrapbook design team around. Well, let me tell you!
To prove that they were certifiably insane, Eric and Julie Comstock, two artists, decided to start their own company. They launched Cosmo Cricket in the summer of 2006 at the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. The idea was to have the best designed paper, really cool embellishments and a lot of fun! Things took off much faster than predicted and the first year was a scramble just trying to keep up. Seven years later, they decided to team up with Advantus Corp. so they could stop the day and day grind of worries about shipments, invoices and all the other "fun" stuff and focus on their passion - creating original, unique craft products. It seems they have come full circle...back to creating things they love.
Eric and Julie design all the products for Cosmo Cricket. They work from their home in Austin, Texas, less than two feet from each other all day long being interrupted continuously by four children along with phone calls and emails from what they refer to as "headquarters". When asked about his work arrangement with his wife, Eric replied, "I was already insane enough to start the company, so spending 24 hours a day with Julie just seemed like a natural progression of my illness."
