note from

A little 


PaperTwigs takes time to inspire people to send love + paper hugs.
To take time out of our busy, digital driven worlds + find a connection with nature and wellbeing through writing + stationary. Remember getting lost in diary writing as a little kid? Or leaving sweet little notes out for people to find? The moment you connect pen on paper + choose to take time to write a message to someone, is a moment you create a lasting memory. Hold on to those old cards + letters.. For one day they will be so special for you to hold in your hands + let the handwriting take you back to that time. I still dearly hold onto letters my lovely Nana sent me over 20 years ago, I am so grateful to be able to now can share them with my mother and my son. And we can laugh together, fondly remembering those times.A simple card or letter holds a remarkable power to convey love, gratitude + cherished memories.
