A Gift for Jenny McCarthy

We are back from our trip and we had a blast.. can't wait to share pictures and stories with you all.. soon I hope. Till then..

A few weeks ago I had shared with you this terrific opportunity that had come my way thanks to The Artisan Group, sending a little something to Jenny McCarthy. A big thank you to everyone who had weighed in and helped me make this decision.. it was a pretty close call between two photographs and in the end I went with the always popular Sitting Blue.  


I matted it this time instead of mounting it on wood. I hadn't been 100% satisfied with my gifting to Ms. Frankel. It had been my first time and there was too much self doubt involved in the process. This time around I was a bit, yes just a bit more confident.



I included in the package a bio card (I stumbled upon a crazy deal of 30 free bio cards and all I had to do was pay shipping!) I wrote a little something from me to her on the back. And two business cards.. 


Wrapped it all up in some bright pink tissue and tied a jute string around it.. I am the worse gift wrapper.. my go to is putting the present in a bag and stuffing it with tissue.. so this was quite an accomplishment.

Congratulations on being chosen to give the gift. I think you did a great job wrapping. I'm always surprised when my packages aren't tagged as "suspicious". It's not my strong suit either. :)

The picture is very pretty, you should be so excited. They wouldn't choose you if they didn't think your photos were worth it.
