WRYTEWOOD BOXED TRAVEL NOTES & LEATHER NOTE FOLIOS
My kids can tell you this: our 26-year-old, heavy-duty tape dispenser is stashed atop the microwave; folds of colorful packing tissue rolls are piled beneath my drafting table, lined up like good little soldiers; and cleverly arranged in a pseudo-warehouse aka garage, a few feet from our nifty little Jeep Renegade aka the car made in Italy, is a stack of various-sized corrugated boxes. UPS, come and get ’em!
It’s always been this way: babies, toddlers, grade-middle-high-college schoolers went hand-in-hand with dashing to package and ship boxed notes, commissioned house portraits, personalized stationery, books, posters and original art. Gift wrap, bubble wrap, a beloved Ribbon Center and lots and lots of hand-written enclosure notes.
Working from home has been the surprise delight of my life.
Snapshots vary from watching my then 7-year-old daughter blush with pride while opening a note with a gold dollar coin from a grateful customer; my then 5 year old youngest’s playday consisting of taking imaginary phone orders from Oprah while feeding a baby doll and making my lunch; and my growing son dashing up to chase the UPS truck with yet another box of packed goods to ship off to the points unknown of yet another loyal m wood pen customer.
Prepping happily for our 27th season of packing and shipping, here’s a big box of creative appreciation filled with love, zest, gratitude and always a handy aroma of coffee to keep our tickers going.
And, in homage to my humble beginnings of running a little notecard empire from my basement, it’s my honor to announce the (re)launch of my boxed notecard business. New name, but same pen and with a yen for travel.
Ladies & Gentlemen, here you are: WRYTEWOOD Travel Inspired Boxed Notes.
