    On average, Americans check their phones 80 times a day. It seems like living in the present is a thing of past. But there’s an easy way to come back down to earth: crafting. While colored pens and stationary may not save the world, they do help us cherish all of life’s special moments, big and small – and there’s something to be said for that. Whether it’s a handwritten love letter you save for years to come or a memory book of your child’s first year, paper gives you a platform to master the Art of Living, Giving, Creating, and Celebrating.
