Well before Christmas (August, actually), I had an adorably thoughtful man contact me about creating a gift for his girlfriend: a custom print of a meaningful quote from the Office. He told me about how they watched the series finale together, and he noticed that this scene seemed to touch a nerve for her. After a brief consultation in which we established that he was "clueless" (his word) about design preferences besides "pretty," we came up with an idea that she'd love.
With each step of the process, I loved having that little burst of joy accompanying the thought of how cute some humans are. It definitely got me started wishing for the holidays sooner this year!
