My dear artist friend Dreama Tolle Perry called me the other day with an idea that "gift packaging" our paintings might be a good idea. I had always thought that I packaged my paintings pretty well before ... but after I talked to Dreama I realized this could be a wonderful free service we should offer.
Of course I live in Pasadena (and Dreama lives in Kentucky). So within a few hours I had already been to the Container Store, Kelley Paper and the wholesale ribbon store. Dreama, on the other hand, was pretty much still in Kentucky without a lot of resources nearby.
So ... even though I have already started shipping "gift wrapped" paintings and I now have a complete new "wrapping and mailing" center in my studio ... Dreama is still in Kentucky with limited resources.
My point is ... it was her idea. So technically, she should be the one with the nicely gift wrapped paintings. So please everyone, remember Dreama gets ALL OF THE credit for my new "Gift wrapping" serivce!
