Disability Awareness Butterfly Plaques, June 1, 2013

Welcome to our new blog. We have a website, and you can always visit there and shop there. But this is a place where we will post our newsletters, featuring a new item from our workshop each time. Now, we've been learning a little bit about blogging and newsletters, and it is not our goal to bury you in marketing; rather, we want to appeal to your love of wooden toys and items that make people happy.

Here's a look at the first newsletter that we sent out a few weeks ago. Re-posting it here will give us something to start this conversation. 

"Hi, Rick here,
We've started something new. We're going to send emails from time to time, so more people can get to know us and the items that we make.

Wooden Toy and Gift started in the mid-1970s; we began with wooden Christmas ornaments, and gravity-powered spinning carousels. And now we have many other gift items to offer our customers.

Today, we would like to share with you our framed scroll-sawn butterfly disability awareness plaques. The butterfly is made of hard maple and worked on a scroll saw, one at a time. The background can be any color you choose, or the color of a specific disability awareness ribbon. The frame is also made of hard maple with plexiglas over the front. It measures 7" x 7" x 1 1/4" deep.

Come visit us at www.woodentoyandgift.net or on Facebook. If you enjoy what you see, please share the information with a friend.

Look to the right and find the widget that will let you follow this blog, so that you will receive an email each time a new newsletter edition is posted. Please invite your friends to follow us as well. And, if you or your friends have questions for us, or ideas for different items, you can leave a comment below, or contact us at our business email: woodentoyandgift@comcast.net."

They told us, in the webinar on blogging, that readers like blogs that are short and to the point. So we'll say bye for now, 'til next time.
