    Poor penguin without hair. How will he keep warm? I don’t think I will be buying those skinny jeans anytime soon. Love the colored pencil fence.

    To whom it my concern,
    We are interested in sending you an exclusive press/blog package about our upcoming art show. It would include exclusive images and everything you might need for a blog post or calendar event post. Please let us know what might be the best email to contact you.
    Thank you so much for your time and web presence.
    Kind Regards,

    Hey Kim!

    If you still run The Function Key, I want to suggest you review Deck Towel, maker of fine linen towels and blankets in New York City, for review. We’ve been reviewed by GQ, the New York Times, Marie Claire, and more. Would love your feedback too!

    Thanks,

    Matthew
