3 Fun Facts

You may not know about Kim Smith, designer/illustrator/president of TCG

1 Growing up, she always wanted to be a “card club lady.”

Kim hates games, almost any kind, and doesn’t know a thing about playing cards. But growing up, that’s what she thought her mother’s job was, and so that’s what she would be, too.

“It wasn’t really the playing of cards that intrigued me; it was more about the beautiful table layout set perfectly before everyone arrived…all the forks spread out in a tapered pattern…all of the napkins stacked neatly, so that you could easily grab one…and the punch cups hanging along the side of the punch bowl evenly spaced out. (Precursor to art directing, perhaps?) But I think my favorite part was, after I went to bed, listening to everyone’s laughter.”

2 Her father was a painter and wallpaper hanger.

And Kim loved to make Barbie doll fashions from discarded wall paper books.

“The wall paper was really stiff to work with, but my Barbie had fashions unlike any other, that’s for sure. It kept me busy for hours on end, and I still love wallpaper. I sure wish I had all of those old books!”

3 Her great uncle had a barbershop where the current TCG office is in East Petersburg.

“My father would bring me to Aunt Blanche to get my bangs cut from time to time, and I always loved that I could get a tootsie pop out of the bottom drawer when I was finished.”

Some things just don’t change, TCG usually has candy near the very spot where those lollipops were kept so many years ago.
