Holy Twitter, Batman! My heart swells with pride as I read all the tweets about how amazing the GBK Emmy Award Gift Lounge was, especially the contributions by The Artisan Group! Celebrities like Nia Peeples, Penny Marshall, Rico Rodriguez and many more fell in love with the fabulous products handmade by my TAG peeps. And it couldn't have happened without the fabulous Valerie Propst Guerrero and Nikki Cutro, the founder and managing partner of The Artisan Group. Their enthusiasm and dedication at the event itself was incredible! Although I personally did not participate in this event, I felt so emotionally invested...we're like a family.
