What a Pear!

I’ve known and worked with identical twins and extremely talented designers, Karen and Kim for well over 10 years. Karen and Kim took on many assignments over the years at Simple Scrapbooks — and far too many last-minute assignments! They share a command of white space and a keen eye for photographing life’s most important moments. Even as I write this, I can conjure up a dozen images of their scrapbook pages. A couple of years ago, Kim moved to Arizona and I remember experiencing sympathetic pain for these two sisters as they embarked on a long-distance relationship. If you are a fan of Write.Click.Scrapbook, you are likely familiar with Kim’s work in the WCS galleries. Anyway, I recently ran into Kim at Crop Because You Care in Salt Lake City and she reminded me that being separated from your twin sister and best friend is less painful when you share a successful Etsy shop–appropriately named Pearenthetical Press.

I promised Karen I would feature their gorgeous paper goods on my blog.

The really good news is, these very generous sisters have put together a special offer for my blog readers …

Special Offer: 15% off any personalized note card sets or bookplates

Use coupon code POACHEDPEAR through Mother’s Day, May 8th.
In addition, Karen and Kim wanted me to give away a set of personalized note cards or bookplates with a value up to $20 — wow!

I’ve selected Mara, who commented on my Hawaii Highlights post and gave me permission to take my re-entry 15 minutes at a time. Thank YOU Mara, I so appreciate the kindness! Today was good — granted I am publishing this post at 6:15 pm?!

Pearenthetical Press is a small, twin-sister-run stationery shop specializing in modern, tastefully designed paper goods, all of your personal correspondence and special event needs. We feel that life is full of beautiful moments and that those moments deserve equally beautiful paper goods at affordable prices. Our products include personalized note cards, invitations of all kinds, holiday cards, greeting cards, birth announcements, bookplates, and more.
All of our stationery is printed by us on premium, smooth, white, 110 lb paper using fade-and-water-resistant archival pigment ink. Folding and corner-rounding is done by hand and each order is carefully checked and prettily packaged before it is sent on it’s way.
