Mason jars filled with hot chocolate mix, an apron stitched together from vintage dish cloths, a hand knit scarf- these are a few of my favorite things. For this year’s holiday celebration, my favorite gift to give is a personalized scrapbook. Throughout the year, I collect photographs of significant events, and in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I create my scrapbook pages. What’s in my arsenal of scrapbook supplies?
We’ve had letters from a 13-year old to an 80-year old who both express themselves sincerely and from the heart. We couldn’t be more pleased with our entries so far but we hope that you’ll take the time away from the busy-ness of the season to sit down and write a letter that expresses your gratitude and thanks in your own words and in your own handwriting. You might even win a thank you gift from us. We’ll be picking five letters out of the submitted entries. The first prize is a $200 Visa Gift Card and $100 in Pentel products. The four runner-ups will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card and $25 in Pentel products. You can find the rules here.

Year round, we participate in a multitude of philanthropic events. Breast cancer, alzheimers, public school support- these are all topics that are near and dear to our hearts.
