Thank you Lindt HELLO for sponsoring today’s easy great-to-meet-you gift idea – because it all starts with HELLO!
Holy cow, friends. What. A. Day. ArtPrize is now officially underway, which means I’ve switched from being excited and counting down the days, to thinking about who might be voting for my art, whether I left enough cards, whether I brought enough quarters for the parking meter, whether I’m smiling enough (or, too much??)… all those things that make a girl go just a little bit crazy trying to make my best impression! There’s so much in that first hello when you meet someone new, isn’t there?
I’m not alone in it, though, I’ve had the chance not only to meet some great art fans, but also some great fellow artists whose art is on display in the same venue as mine. It’s actually been quite a while since I’ve met so many new people, and for the next two weeks, we’re all going to be great friends! So I whipped up a couple sweet gifts that anyone (crafty or not) can give to a brand new friend.
Because, of course, who doesn’t love some CHOCOLATE… especially on such a big day?
And also, when it comes to making a good first impression, it’s not all about making the *perfect* first impression. It’s about being sweet and genuine – start with a simple hello! I had to remind myself of that, and it really settled my nerves, and made me feel more confident. Not only can I handle the competition but I stand to make some great connections, and maybe even some great friendships, during my time at ArtPrize.
Same thing goes for a sweet HELLO gift… there’s no reason you have to scour Pinterest for the perfect crafty nice-to-meet-you idea. It can truly be as simple as writing a small card, tying a bit of ribbon around a beautiful bar of chocolate, and saying to someone, “How’s it going today? Need a chocolate break?” And what better bar than the new HELLO chocolate bars from Lindt?
A chocolate HELLO stands to impress just about anyone – and every friendship (or relationship) starts with hello!
Lindt Chocolate is partnering with Ashley Tisdale to co-produce the romantic comedy web-series “It Started with HELLO” inspired by the personalities of the Lindt HELLO line. You can see the characters (YouTube and celebrity talent!) spark new connections each week, and you can even choose your own ending to each episode – how satisfying is that?
You can make connections of your own by entering the Lindt HELLO Sweet Connections Sweepstakes! You can enter every day for your chance to win a sweet experience from Lindt Chocolate. Each week has a new theme (this week, it’s Girls Just Want To Have Fun – so check it out)!
