Everybody Loves Chocolate!

You are probably asking yourself right now, "Am I on the right blog?".............and the answer is YES.
Last fall I was contracted to paint three fruit and candy designs to be used on the candy bags for these delicious chocolate covered fruit flavored candies.  I was so pleased to receive these samples in the mail.  Unfortunately for me, they are only being distributed on the west coast at this time, and I live 3,000 miles away on the east coast, so I will not be walking into my local Home Goods store and see them on the shelf.

It was a fabulous experience for me and I still get excited when I see MY work on the bags.  They even gave me credit as each and every bag reads "Artwork by Carol Schiff" followed with my website address!  How cool is that.

Now I have to decide whether to keep these bags or to eat the candy and maybe have the bags preserved in a frame.  My husband votes to eat the candy.  How do you vote?

Oh mais c'est vraiment génial !!! Je vous félicite ma chère ! En plus c'est vraiment un support très intéressant pour faire de la communication. Un bel échange !
Je crois que je consommerais beaucoup de ces bonbons rien que pour admirer votre art !
Ici en France en période de Noël, nous avons les papillotes au chocolat... A l'intérieur du papier, il y a toujours un petit dessin humoristique et je crois que je consomme beaucoup de ces chocolats rien que pour lire et regarder le dessin !
J'avais manqué votre dernière publication avec la jeune enfant jouant du piano. Une merveilleuse pièce, cela ne m'étonne pas qu'elle soit vendue. Bravo !
Gros bisous à vous.

Eat the candy! You MUST know if it's worthy to have your name on the bag ;)!

My bet is on eating the candy...and having the company send you empty bags to frame ! I'm sure they would. After a while, you will only have petrified candy that is inedible.
Congratulations ! An honor to know someone that has made it big time!
