The Wordsmiths

Like peanut butter and jelly, some pairs were just meant to be: wood with words, Gib with Lisa.

Gib made his first box at age 14 in shop class for a girlfriend.  Lisa did her first layout work with rub-on letters and graphic tape in a college journalism class.   Neither one of us ever imagined we’d find each other, merge our talents, and live the dream of owning a small Mom-and-Pop business together in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

It took a while.  We both enjoyed careers in other professions, but slowly, over the course of the past 15 years, our little “hobby” grew into a full-time adventure!

We're blessed to be able to blend wood & words into wood goods that stimulate discussion, inspire laughter, capture memories — in short, things that help people enjoy and celebrate life.
