My order was packed so carefully, and perfectly. A+ from start to finish - thank you a million times over! I cannot wait to collaborate again!"

"My covered paper tray arrived today and... it looks beautiful on my kitchen desk. It is perfect for helping me get organized and keeping the never ending pile of paper under control. Very well made and shipped with great protection. First class! After a few days of use, I wanted to add a bit more. I have found a couple of unanticipated benefits. The pile of paper is now protected from my pesky cat messing with it and since it is covered glances from a repair person passing by can't see any private info." Massachusetts 


"Where to start? This [hinged blotter] was a Christmas present to myself and an absolute JOY from picking out the paper, coordinating with Erika, and then getting that special box today.
