    CORONA, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- "You can imagine my surprise when
 I got a call from Brooke Shields herself!" says Marci Struzinski, the talented
 designer who created the best-selling Children of the Inner Light(R) giftware
 collection.

     Marci said of the experience, "It turns out that Brooke has been buying my
 work to share with her family and friends.  She told me she just loved my
 little characters and their inspirational sentiments, and asked if I would
 design something special for her secret, private wedding.  I told her that I
 was developing a series of 'Hugging' characters and had just completed the
 'Bride and Groom Hugging.'  We both decided that they were perfect for her
 wedding.  Sure enough, she loved them!"
     Shields was married on April 4th to writer and producer Chris Henchy in a
 small, private ceremony on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern
 California.
     Inspired by her family, Marci began her career drawing adorable,
 child-like characters in black and white, then adding inspirational sentiments
 to her illustrations.  In 1997, she invested her entire savings to concentrate
 on selling her designs on shirts and cards from a cart in a local mall, and
 the Children of the Inner Light collection of giftware was born.
     The response to her expressive designs was overwhelming from the very
 beginning.
     "People smiled and chuckled out loud, as my characters caught their eyes
 and tugged at their hearts," Marci says.  The series concerns relationships
 and the opportunities that relationships provide for spiritual growth, with
 gifts that express love, acceptance, and gratitude -- all necessary elements
 in a growing relationship.
     Marci's Children of the Inner Light giftware collection is manufactured
 and distributed by Papel Giftware of Monroe Township, New Jersey, a Cast Art
 company.  Her delightful "Hugging" characters are scheduled for introduction
 in July 2002.  The same bride and groom used by Brooke Shields will be
 available, along with other beloved characters that touch the soul and uplift
 the spirit of anyone who receives a piece of her giftware -- even the rich and
 famous!
