We change the social norms by removing the stigma of child sexual abuse from the victim and placing it on the abuser and placing responsibility on adults to be trained and vigilant to protect children from child sexual abuse. We want to bring prevention and healing programs into community.

I believe with good design your personality shows through in your space, and it is inspiring and functional…I like to use pops of color, repurpose unique pieces and mix old with new to create and enhance character.  You should love where you live and have fun creating your space.

I have always loved art and wanted to be an artist since I was a little girl.  I attended the University of Georgia and worked in media and radio for years – doing design work on the side.  After my 2nd child was born, I decided to create my company and haven’t looked back since.  It has been amazing!

The Mylene Sheath is an independent record label whose motivation in this is to make the art we love available to as many people as we can. We are not interested in just creating a product to be bought and sold for as much money as it can produce. It is more our effort to actively participate in something meaningful, to give back to something that has always filled the voids in our lives and helped us maintain a positive outlook on the future. We believe that one’s ethical standpoint does not have to collide with one’s business standpoint, and believe.

Carrie started Neatsmart after 15 years in the corporate world training on salesforce automation software, selling high end luxury goods, implementing and training compliance  software applications, and managing client relationships. I had been helping friends and family with organizing their homes for years but never thought I could do it for a living. Then one day, not too long ago, I had my epiphany: I was working from home and I had scheduled a lunch break from conference calls and client work to organize and set up my husband’s new office. I couldn’t wait to work on that project and knew then that I needed to pursue this passion full time.

Neatsmart helps busy people clear the clutter from their homes and closets so they can function more efficiently and love their surroundings. I help people by designing and implementing an organization system that works for them and their specific needs. This could be anywhere from your home office, closet, kids’ rooms and playrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, etc.
