Say hola to the shelfies!

December 07, 2018

Just like that, we're in December...when and how did that happen?! And by now, you most likely know that,

A) I love sunsets...OK, maybe slightly obsessed?!,
B) I love surfing as much as I love sunsets,
C) And I LOVE my dog Gidget...that is when she's not immersing herself into a bag of garbage like she did yesterday...🙈.

But did you know I only started surfing when I took my first surf lesson at 25 and only seriously started pursuing photography a little over three years ago? Yep, muchas gracias to that quarter life crisis for hinting that I needed to change things up a 'lil...or a whole lot!!!

So what's the take away in this little spiel? You are the only one in charge of the way you want to live your life, so you might as well live it 100%!!! Ok, unless you're reading this from a jail cell or trapped on a deserted island somewhere in the middle of the ocean...

And in the spirit of living life 100% and less time spent in the mall shopping for the perfect holiday gift for the beach lover in your life (because if you're like me, you'd rather be surfing or getting outdoors than shopping in the mall..especially during the holidays...), how about one click shopping with mybrand spankin' new product collaboration with Art To Frame (insert drum roll)....

🎉🎉 The Shelfies!!! 🎉🎉 

What's a shelfie you ask? A breathtaking 5"x5" fine art beach or sunset print from The Sunset Shop framed in a beautiful satin white frame, perfect for the beach lover in your life -- or you!!! Shelfies are great to style on a shelf, hang on a gallery wall, or stand alone on a desk. 🙌🏻

AND for just for this holiday season, the shelfies are at a perfect price point for holiday gifts - $50 shipped directly to your loved one (or to you)! Add gift wrapping for $5 and your holiday shopping is oh-so-easy!!! But, hurry on up because once the holidays are over, so is this special holiday price on these dreamy shelfies (going up to $65...😮).

Magical sunset / beach / mountain print + beautiful frame + gift wrapped 
you'll be the best gift giver this holiday season!
