Over the last year, I’ve fallen victim to relying on e-mail and other forms of electronic communication to keep up with correspondence. With our fast-paced and on-the-go lifestyles, it’s totally understandable why so many of us send texts and e-mails instead of handwritten notes. But I have to say: when I do get a handwritten note in the mail, it makes my day. I’m incredibly touched, and feel so loved. I’ve even framed several of my favorite cards. (Mostly those involving dachshunds. Surprise, surprise.) Taking the time to send handwritten cards is so important, in my opinion, and I’m making a concerted effort this year to send more snail mail! (My Grammie and mother are incredible when it comes to this. Thanks, guys. Smooches.)
Today, I’m teaming up with Giddy Paperie, a stationary and paper goods shop that I recently fell in love with, to bring you a fun giveaway. :) How cute are the monogrammed bee cards pictured above and below?! I’m obsessed. “Bee” sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to win your own set! (Perfect Mother’s Day gift, right?!)
Part of what makes Giddy Paperie so special is that its team–made up of Leslie Chalfont (owner/designer) and Lauren Yochum (marketing/communications)–loves working with clients to create custom, one-of-a-kind pieces. There are tons of huge online stationary stores out there today, but few that offer the same personalized service that Giddy Paperie does. These ladies have 30+ years of experience, too!
Leslie and Lauren are some of the sweetest entrepreneurial women you’ll meet. They truly care about their customers–so evident from the conversations I had with them!–and they make custom projects fun and easy. They believe stationary is a form of artwork, and they see their store as the perfect platform for combining all the things they love: beautiful paper, bookbinding, calligraphy and painting. And it shows! The attention to detail in each Giddy Paperie product is astounding. (Check out the company’s blog to get a glimpse of what it’s like to be a stationary designer!)
