I send snail mail art and anecdotes to seniors. This venture began when I received an invitation to my great aunt’s birthday celebration. It mentioned that since her caregiver receives all the bills she hardly gets any mail, but she checks it every day. I have had many pen pals over the years. The letters evolved from sticker covered wide-ruled lined notebook paper, to colored marker text, to including my patterns and art depending on our ages and interests.
I create invitations, announcements, and cards for baby boomer vow renewals, retirements, 50+ birthdays and grandchildren. My passion is for making it easy for busy people to elegantly celebrate moments in their lives, and bring a smile to the day.
My inspiration comes from architecture, nature and my clients. Helping fulfill an idea someone has makes me happy. Recycled, salvaged, sustainably made, high quality, thick materials are important to me. Everything is proudly designed, printed, and assembled in my Wisconsin studio, so smaller quantities are no problem. Purchases support my family and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Handwritten “thank yous” and “thinking of yous” don’t go out of style. Special moments in life should be elegantly shared.
