Letter writing is the truest form for someone else to know how you truly feel, uninterrupted.
— Mr. JaneJacobs

Growing up, I’ve always love sending letters to friends and relatives. Letter writing for me is the deepest connection I have the ability to give to others when I truly want to stay in contact. Each of us are busy in our own worlds, writing words of gratitude helps slow down time to truly make me feel grounded.

The way I see it, letter writing is the truest form for someone else to know how you truly feel, uninterrupted. I bet you most of your conversations are always warranting a reply, whether you want one or not. I ask you this, when was the last time someone actually listened to you? In world more connected than ever, why is it that we crave connection even more? Try sending a letter to someone and tell me the results you feel.

So how did I meet the wonderful Cat? On a hike of course! As we made our way up to Rattlesnake Ledge, I expressed to Cat my love for letter writing. She joyfully replied, “I’m an artist and a small business owner specializing in letter-press greeting cards and stationery.” Guess who became my bestie for the rest of hike up?! I further expressed that it would be a dream of mine to make greeting cards and that a collaboration would be great to get my ideas out there.



Over the past year, I visited Cat bouncing ideas around and rough sketches. After having about 20 ideas, we consulted on which designs were the standouts! What I love about our collaboration, was where the limits of what I could draw out of my head, Cat was able to catch the ideas, taking them further than I’ve imagined! I am thrilled to announce this dream come true!

I cannot thank Cat enough for this awesome collaboration! She has done magic to create gifts that others can share in all moments of life. I will never forget Cat stating, “My greeting cards are just half of it, I find delight knowing that its up to the person to complete my work.”
