I've always loved these words by Henri Matisse, and I always used this phrase as a reminder to step outside my comfort zone. But 2020 opened up a new meaning for creativity taking courage. In March of last year we saw stores who carry our products close their doors and wholesale orders halted. We saw people we care about be affected greatly by COVID. We faced new challenges for our small, family run business. With much grace and gratitude we chose courage and got creative with our business. We were overwhelmed with the support of our direct customer sales, and we saw Pen & Paint not only survive but thrive.
Thank you so much for your amazing support in 2020. May 2021 be a year of -remembrance, hope for a peaceful future, new beginnings, endurance, and resourcefulness.
