I would like to introduce you to my new found (and quite fabulous, I might add) friends at 2 Kids and a Dog.
We met quite accidentally through a mutual friend Bleeding Esspresso at least a month ago...but became friends quite fast. I mean, as fast as you can become friends, via email half way across the world while the person on my end does a whole lot of happy clapping and uproarious laughter.
You HAVE to visit their website immediately and familiarize yourself through the magic of video with this enchanting family of talented actors.
You won't be disappointed.
They're a hoot.
How can you not fall for a family that is so creative and takes such wonderful photos?
I ask you.
I remember reading that Alexia and her family were looking for a unique and fun Christmas gift for their family, and since they are actors...they dressed up as different families to take self-portraits and made a calendar. Which was such a hit that it has blossomed into videos and more pictures.
I think I have a crush on this entire family.
One of the things that made me sit up and take notice when I wandered over to their site (I mean besides the total creative and hilarious photos they produce, seeing as we have that in common...) is the fact that the whole family...including the dog...are totally involved with this project...and they all look like they're having so much fun with each other as a family! What a perfect group of role-models. I grew up in a family who laughed a lot together and it makes me so happy that through creativity, photography, a video camera, and a whole lot of love, that someone out there is sharing this with us world-wide. It makes me a little jealous, but I have decided to adopt myself right in to their family (plus we all know how much I love Italy, so it's like having another home there) through viewing their videos and laughing right along with them...
I love a good storyteller.
(and they have rightly inspired me to move forward with more photography projects for myself)
After trading emails with Alexia, she sweetly sent along one of these calendars for me to view with my own eyes.
The calendar is a full color, beautifully detailed photo extravaganza...full of humor and wit not to mention, the best titles for pictures I have seen in a long while. The calendar is something that will make you smile again and again as you walk by it...I have been doing this all week myself.
There's nothing like someone who brings laughter and a smile into your world.
Through the magic of the Post Office and a couple of emails and a big white envelope, I have a very special announcement:
The 2 Kids and a Dog Mini Wall Calendar can be yours!
Yes. It's true.
Just leave a comment in the comment section of this post and I will randomly draw a name out of a large collapsible top hat or some other crazy means...and YOU could be the lucky winner of the perfect wall art.
Good luck and I'll see you all back here on Monday.
