starting with the nickelodeon kids choice awards gifting suite

hello friends :)

i feel like i was caught in a storm of the crazy-busy's.  we've all been there.  you get so busy, you hardly get time to come up for air.  exhaustion hits, and then stress.

"how am i going to get everything done?!"

luckily, this time... i kept fairly stress free.  when you love what you do... and i REALLY love what i do... work doesn't seem like work, it seems like creative play.

i have SO much to share with you, but my messy creative pink brain is having a hard time figuring out where to start.  so i decided to 'back up' to where the "crazy-busy's" began... for this year, that is ;)

back in march, i was contacted by a talent coordinator, for the 2012 nickelodeon kids choice awards, with an amazing opportunity to "gift" my product to the young, trending celebrities of the big screen, nickelodeon, disney channel and more. 

it was a lot of work, but SO worth it! if you ever thought about gifting your goods, i highly recommend it. just make sure your product will work for the gift-ee's.  in my case, as you know... i rarely create product for boys.  thank goodness for the simplicity of minecraft creepers, mustaches & robots, as my booth was packed with both gals & guys.  i have to say, i made several best friends with the creeper necklace, which my son, aidan demand that i make & take.

"mom, the celebrities will love minecraft... it is so popular... i'm telling you..."
why is it, that ten year olds are most often right?

these beautiful actresses genuinely loved creme de la gems! i was humbled by the wonderful feedback and compliments i received (enter big 'ol cheezy grin here)... and to actually SEE their expressions... is something i don't really get a chance to see for myself, since i sell mostly online.

one of the highlights for myself & the creme de la gems staff, was meeting amandla Stenberg, who played Rue in  the hunger games movie.  as soon as amandla saw my booth, she took out her iphone, and said,"ohh... my goodness... would you mind if i take pictures?"  ummm... nope.  i don't mind... don't mind at all. 

would you mind?
