Hot Chocolate


Good to the last drop it was! I just purchased some Hot Cocoa Mix
from my local food market and let me tell you it was wonderful!!!
It was imported from France. I tell you this stuff is magic! It's smooth,
rich and creamy and I think I'm addicted. However... the packaging wasn't
so special. I love packaging! Most of all the packaging from
the 50's, 60's and 70's! Of course because I'm an artist. We sometimes
by with our eyes first. I created this little label to put on the outside of the can.
Instant magic I call it. Mamma needs a little lift! Hope I made you smile today!
Have a most magical day my friends!

Hot chocolate and your work, they both make a day better!

Great idea, doing your own labels! I wish my cupboards were full of things like this.

Thanks for all your inspirational comments.

Suddenly, the hot chocolate in my cupboard isn't good enough. I need THAT hot chocolate. YOUR hot chocolate. Man, if that hot chocolate company saw this, they'd hire you and their hot chocolate would be FLYING off the shelves! Better yet, girl, you should market your own!

Fannie said...

Hi, Vanessa! Yes, you made me smile! That label is enticing . . . makes me want to buy your hot chocolate!

ArtSparker said...

Quite wonderful, yes, the wrapping is important.
