The Artisan Group at the GBK Golden Globes Gift Lounge January 2012

This weekend saw artisans from all over the globe glued to their computer screens as we kept track of Founder Valerie and Managing Partner Nikki at the GBK Gift Lounge in honour of Golden Globes nominees held at the Beverley Hills L'Ermitage Hotel.

100 gift bags containing $800 of handmade goodies were gifted to attending celebrities such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Elizabeth McGovern, Jeremy Irons, Damien Lewis, Chris Noth and many many more.

The press were also gifted mini swag bags with reporters from the The Huffington Post, ABC News, Mingle Media, Hollywood.TV, LA Daily News, LA's The Place, Splash magazines and The Today Show in Australia in attendance.

I was a participant at business card level along with a whole heap of other talented artisans.

Everyone's displays were greeted with such enthusiasm and many celebrities have tweeted the artisans thanking them.

Looking forward to hearing all the success stories that come out of this event!!
