More Than A Gift Exchange

As many of you know, we have recently joined the land of Twitter and are loving every minute of it. With that came a whirl wind of great connections all over the world with other creative professionals. One thing led to another and we were invited to be part of a group called TWIPS {Twitter Wedding Inspiration Pals}. The sweet Annie from Marry You Me headed up a holiday gift exchange for us TWIPS & we were thrilled to draw Katie from Simply & Forever Event Planning. We packed up our goodies and sent them her way, anxiously awaiting our unknown 'elf' to send us ours. All we can say is our day was made when our gift arrived. To our surprise, we unwrapped a beautiful hand-made ceramic stationery box & gorgeous letterpress Thank You cards from a fellow stationer in NC, Sealed with Appeal! There was something special about Adger's gift & heartfelt note to us. It made us appreciate the vendor-to-vendor relationship and opportunity to encourage one another's businesses. Sometimes this industry can get competitive {well, can't they all} so it was refreshing to experience {and shout it from the rooftops} the joy in getting to know other invitation companies & their products. For lack of better words... us stationers gotta stick together.

With that being said, consider this post a huge "Thank You" to all the TWIPS, and an even bigger 'high five' to our fellow stationers. Happy Monday everyone!
