Feeling very happy today as Matt launched our redesigned website which he has been working hard at producing. Scott and I have been working hard also on the outside to bring our “favorite things” directly to our customers. As I reminisce today looking back to 2012 when we began our journey, I think of this quote by Mary Oliver, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life.” Wow, that makes you think. I have been so fortunate to work with family and my best supporter for 53 years, my husband, to make this dream come true. Lucky for me that I have two great talented sons who care enough to be part of it too.
Thinking back to my childhood, I was always interested in design and it is surprising that I never pursued that interest and instead took another career road. I have been blessed to always have been employed in fields that I really liked. But today I have been working on a late career that is really fun. I like what I do and feel fortunate to share these creations with many people. The most rewarding gifts for me are the responses from my customers for whom I have made inspirational and memorable gifts for loved ones. It is like sharing part of yourself with so many wonderful people and being part of their memories.
We hope to continue providing the best of the best to everyone. We also want to bring our own experiences to life and to share them. Our goals are to make others happy and give them something to enjoy. Our photographs are a special gift to those who are homebound and just want to look at a beautiful picture of the state they love. We hope to share these with the world. We also want to bring into our area, pictures and items we find pleasing from our travels and our past. We will keep on striving for quality and excellence in our creative designs.
We always want to reach out and touch someone. We hope you will take a peek at what we have been working on and think of us when you are looking for that special gift. It is a blessing when you have so much to be thankful for. We wish you and yours a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. I’ll end with another great quote (I always need inspiration) by Harriet Tubman, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer.” That’s what memories are made of!
