Every product made has a story
This week I had the privilege to create a set of wooden linked letters for a couple whose circumstances were unique when compared to the average couple, and their love and romance thrives despite the miles which often separate them.
I was contacted by James, a serving soldier who ordered a set of linked wooden letters for his anniversary. He really wanted them to arrive early to coincide with his short leave from the forces. His hope was to have them on the day of his anniversary so he could present the gift and see his beloved wife’s face as she opened it. I get this type of request often and always try to accommodate, however for a couple who rarely see each other in person, being able to assist in making their moment extra special was a pleasure and a gift to me.
The letters were a J&V combination, a combination which work really well together. They were sketched out on Tuesday night (the night of the request) and prioritised to be completed during the following days. My plan was to complete the letters and dispatch them on the Friday with an express service to arrive Saturday. Although knowing that using any courier service there is always a small chance of delays, I didn’t want to take any chances. To my absolute surprise I managed to complete and dispatch the wooden letters Wednesday allowing 3 days for the courier service to deliver. I’m happy to say they arrived the following day allowing James time to plan for their anniversary together.
James emailed me saying how much his wife loves them. Although I never did asked his wife’s name, but here’s to J and V… Happy Anniversary! I hope you had the most wonderful day!
