What's in a Name??

Today I got a package in the mail. Surprise, surprise, right? It's the holiday's so maybe not sooo surprising. Well this was a kinda special package since it came from Terry Ludwig. Tucked snugly inside was my special order, but it also had my personalized selection of sticks which I choose when I was there teaching in April in Littleton Colorado.

When I choose the sticks, I wanted the set to be special. Terry has had many notable artists/instructors put together sets for him. Wonderful, yummy sets; Maggie Prices' set of greys for example. Why do people need a Marla Baggetta set? Well, sometimes people don't treat themselves right, and get miserly with themselves. We don't allow ourselves what we want, we justify only what we think we need or should have. This set is ALL about what you want! It's the darkest dark and the loviest lavender, it's about the bright lipstick red and the senuous madder. It's about some colors I shouldn't buy 'cause I might not use them, but I love them and want them!

So I have a few names for this set in mind and thought I'd put it out to my loyal followers and facebook friends what you thought. Let me know what you think!

My three ideas are:

Marla Baggetta's Guilty Pleasures Set

Marla Baggetta's Treat Yourself Set

Marla Baggetta's Special Treats Set

To order my set...soon to be named, go to www.terryludwig.com

How about "Special Necessities"? I think color indulgence is a necessity for the artist!

hands down: Guilty Pleasures. And IF that's the name, I'll order for sure....perfect for those days I can't get my act together in the studio. then i just pull out the dark choc I keep hidden for emergencies and your box of GP and I'll be into a masterpiece for sure!
Let us know!

I vote for Special Treats. We deserve it, so why feel guilty? Everyone's entitled to a treat, right?
