National Handwriting Day

23 Jan

Today we celebrate National Handwriting Day.  The lost art, or so it seems, as we type on keyboards and text on our smartphones to communicate.  My grocery lists are now on my iPhone and my conversations are mainly in text and email.  Yet there is something more personal when a note is handwritten.  I think now more than ever, handwritten notes stand out since so few people write them anymore.  Who doesn’t like to open their mailbox and receive a handwritten letter?  Or think back to when you were in school and friends passed notes in class.  So much more exciting than getting a text!

To celebrate, why not write a long lost friend a note letting them know you are thinking of them?  Or jot a quick note to pack  in your kids lunch?

Do you still write handwritten letters?  Let us know if you do and if you feel the art is lost or making a comeback in this modern age of technology.

Happy writing!

Best,

Giving Back this Holiday Season

10 Dec

I love this time of year.  Getting together with friends and loved ones, finding the perfect gifts for everyone on your list and what do I enjoy the most?  Giving back.  Every year at The Stationery Studio we host a coat drive to help those in need.  This year, we were presented an opportunity to help some students who didn’t have any coats at all.  For anyone who’s experienced winter in Chicago, you know that you need a winter coat.  We asked everyone at our office to help out and purchase new coats for these kids.  We were thrilled that so many employees brought in new (and gently used) coats for our coat drive.

The coats were delivered to the school the week of Thanksgiving and the kids were thrilled to get new coats for the upcoming winter.  We donated almost 200 coats!

You can see the “sea” of coats behind a few of our employees who posed with them before they were delivered.  I love being a part of a company that not only values their employees but cares about our community as well.  Let me know how you give back during the holidays.  I love hearing stories of how others are inspired to help their communities.

Best,

Jennifer
