My pick of the week? Artist Printer’s Trays from 7gypsies. So cool! I’m planning on making one as a father’s day gift for my husband.
Molly inspired me with several cool samples she made for our stores, but I got really excited about the idea when she created the awesome design below as a birthday gift for the CEO of our company, John Morgan. John is always making the rounds in the office chatting with everyone, staying in touch with all the work that’s going on, telling lots of funny stories and jokes, and checking out all the great samples and designs in Angie and Molly’s creative workroom. John had seen some of Molly’s printer’s tray designs and commented on how much he liked them, and how the tray was such a classy item with so many cool possibilities. It turned out to be a great gift idea for the man who has everything; personal art that tells the story of a really special day.
Unless you’re a die-hard Minnesota Twins fan like John is, you might not be aware of the fact that construction of a brand new Twins stadium was completed this spring in Minneapolis; a proud and long-awaited moment for baseball fans in Minnesota! The pictures featured in the tray were taken at the very first game in the new stadium, the home opener, which John and his grandson got to enjoy together.
It really was the perfect gift. In fact, John called it the best present he had ever received. It reminded me how cool it is to work for a company that provides the inspiration for special gifts and projects like this one. We all have memories that we cherish. Baseball games and trips to the beach, birthdays and first days of school; I’m glad I get to play a part in helping people make the most of their memories. Make sure you take some time to enjoy your photos and memories too. Whether it’s in a scrapbook or album, or displayed in a cool printer’s tray like Molly created for John, it will be something you’ll cherish for a long time to come.
