Happy Saturday Morning Y’all!
Today I want to tell you all about a fabulous up and coming gift company called Fasten & Forge!
(psst… there is also a giveaway for a $40 prize at the bottom)
I have always loved giving thoughtful and unique gifts with awesome presentation but motherhood has really limited my shopping…
(Let’s be real, as if all the gear needed to embark on a shopping trek wasn’t enough or a deterrent… taking four kids to the mall means I’ll be sweating, frustrated, and doing the walk of shame as I drag my sweet darlings to the car, is it just me?)
That is where Fasten & Forge come in! You can still look like you have the brain capacity to put together a thoughtful gift, but have them do all work.
This shop curates handmade wooden crates to help others give well. Bonus: they even customize crates for those hard-to-buy-for people and occasions.
Before I tell you what’s in it for you… I want you to know a little about Fasten & Forge and the beautiful women behind it all!
Kyla Clark and Kara Harrison are sisters-in-law who have long shared the desire to give meaningful and thoughtful gifts to those they love. Years of coordinating gift lists for family holidays and birthdays brought them closer to both each other as well as those they loved.
They realized giving well equated to loving well. They believe it’s very rarely about the dollar amount, and much more about the simple consideration of another human being, that impacts others so deeply.
In short, their motivation comes down to quality of expression in delivering what words simply cannot.
So, in a small basement, they began curating gift crates to share with all of you and hopefully inspire a movement of human connection and gratitude for one another.
[Adorable, right? Keep going, it gets even better!]
When I asked them to give me the run down for their company I was so moved to help spread the word for these girls. So with insane talent and beautiful hearts here is who they are:
Fasten and Forge has the humble beginnings of a basement workshop in Littleton, Colorado. Years of creating and building has now brought us to you, our partner in commerce and vision. The products we create for you today are simple statements for the home and expressions of personal nurture for the people in your life. Each product has been handcrafted and curated with the hope of delivering what words simply cannot.
We hope to grow F&F into a medium in which we can employ people with disabilities. The market today lacks the channels for these individuals to thrive independently once they reach the age of 21. We are committed to creating an opportunity for this community because we believe in relating well to those around us.
If you are interested in learning more about this new company, be sure to check out their website. They have some baby items, home decor pieces, and a blog for foodies!
