Basically Bare Launches TODAY!

You’ve all been so patient with me as I teased you..given you little hints and some sneak peeks!  Today is the launch of a brand new company owned by Angela Pruitt, Basically Bare!  Here’s a bit about “Basically Bare”.
Basically Bare LLC, founded by Angela Pruitt and Carol Jackson (seen at right), is a family owned and operated manufacturer of fine embellishments and albums for the scrapbooking and paper crafting industry. Basically Bare products are alterable, which means they can be customized by the crafter to meet the artistic needs of their current project.
100% of Basically Bare's products are made and packaged in the Southeastern USA. The materials we use are "Green" and Earth friendly, and are recycled, recyclable and/or obtained from sustainable sources. We are also a "low landfill" manufacturer, which means that no less than 90% of the waste produced during
the manufacturing of our products is locally recycled.
