Mannequin Hands Find Good Home

Some of you might recall our previous post concerning our need for mannequin hands (If you didn't please refer to the post Wanted: Mannequin Hand).  To our pleasant surprise, we arrived to work with a package atop our desk.  Attached to the package, a note. 

"Just thought you gals deserved a "hand" for all the great work you do. Press release: Mannequin Hand Finds Good Home.  Love Jill". 

 For those of you who don't know, Jill is half of the dynamic duo (the other half is her photographer husband Gary) who write one of our most popular Gazette columns, Entertain Me. So we grab a box cutter (in a safe manner, of course - it's all fun and games till someone loses a finger), rip open the box, and inside...

two of the most beautiful mannequin hands a person could ask for.  Not only can you count on for front-row-so-close-you-can-feel-the-sweat coverage of all of your favorite local shows, but you can count on them to be the best coworkers and friends a design team could have.

How she found time to hunt down two mannequin hands between her intense schedule of concert hopping (this month you'll get the full scoop on the Joe Cocker show), setting up press passes, and all of her writing duties, is beyond me.

You can all rest assured that these mannequin hands have found a good home in the graphic design team of The OC Gazette. Our newest member of the design team, Blythe (second to the left) is still on the prowl for a business card holder she can call her own - be it mannequin hand or otherwise.  So if you got any ideas, let us know!
