…I’m just gonna write it!

I’m so proud of my male clients this year.  They didn’t wait until Valentine’s Day to come flying in looking for the “perfect card” for their sweetheart.  Actually a few of them didn’t really want to get a traditional “Valentine’s Day” card.  They wanted very plain (but nice) paper with matching envelopes. “This year I’m just gonna write it!”, said one of my clients.  “No hearts,  no cupids and maybe not even a card.”

Graphic Image Leather Journal, $60, Leather Jotter, $40, Leather Business Card Case, $40. Pineider Capri Stationery, $120. Visconti Fountain Pen, $145. Pilot Japanese Ink, $39. Dempsey and Carroll Engraved Calendar, $125.  Constance Kay Greeting Cards, starting at $9. Just Write, by Molly O’Shaughnessy, $12.95.

He said my window display gave him an idea of what to get his wife this year.   He bought the leather Graphic Image journal in red and a bottle of Private Reserve Ink in Dakota Red for his fountain pen.  He said he plans to write on the first 14 pages (get it?) and then leave the journal on her night stand.  How creative, thoughtful and flat-out romantic.

So no need to work yourself up trying to search for the perfect card.  Almost every card in TT Patton is blank inside so you write what YOU feel.   Mmmmm, I think I might take these hints from my male clients this year for my sweetheart.  I’m just gonna write it!  But, shhhhh don’t tell my husband….he thinks he’s getting a motorcycle! 😉
