The Artisan Group

So, I recently had the privilege of being accepted into an exclusive group of artisans. What group is that you may ask. Well, I'll tell you!

Ever heard of those celebrity swag bags and gifting suites/lounges at major awards shows? Think Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, Kids Choice, Golden Globes... The Artisan Group is a professional promotions group that gives its talented member artisans an opportunity to get in front of those celebs. Not only celebrities, but also in front of major press outlets (E!, Life & Style, InStyle Magazine, Fox, MSNBC, and so on). How cool is that?

*Photos are from The Artisan Group website.*

I was clued in by one of my favorite people, Denise of AJSweetSoap (go look at her stuff, it's AMAZING). And I'll be thanking her until she gets sick of me. LOL! Firstly, I'm so glad that she thought well enough of my work to recommend me to the Group; and secondly (is that a word?), I'm so glad that the Group thought well enough of my work to accept me.

It's free to join and be aware that they are discriminating. They are currently looking for more talented artisans.

Right now, the Group is ramping up for the Primetime Emmy Awards in September. It's a great way to get your item on the display table and possibly get a professional photograph of your item in a celeb's hands. Can we say - incredible marketing opportunity? But, the time to get in is drawing near as half the display places have already been snagged.

Go check out their site, follow them on Twitter and Facebook. Fill out the application and see where it takes you!
