“While digging through old, old stuff, I found an old tablet full of my sketches. Now, the text on the cover was in English, and the paper was old, yellowed and torn. Aside from that, the Bitacora Block is a dead ringer for that old tablet. Everything I’ll draw in the Bitacora will bring back a memory of sunlit days spent sketching in the backyard of Mom’s old house. Pads like this aren’t available where I live—maybe in some very small towns somewhere, but I doubt even that. So I’m reminded—no matter how different a culture seems, no matter the language barrier, the distance and miles—there a deep down resemblance between us all. Everyone sees how the internet is connecting us. We sort of miss the lo-fi connection unless we go looking.”
“OMG, OMG, like quadruple OMG! At the end of the summer, or maybe early in the fall, I ordered the Mexico pack from you, plus a few other things. I am a long-time office supply nut, and I was excited, but I had no idea I was going to get such a lushly packaged super-bomb of pure office-dork joy. Thanks so much: it was really one of the best things to ever get dropped on my porch… So thanks very much! I will definitely be a repeat customer.”
"Oh my gosh. Each stmt kit gets better… as if that’s even possible… And while it’s not an office supply, that golden horse with the awesome blue mane… you could’ve just sent that alone and I would’ve been happy!"
“just got my latest STMT x MEXICO kit from @radandhungryand I LOVE it! (as per usual) - thanks Hen! I appreciate the personal touch you always add!I’ve enjoyed my subscription so much and even more so the connection I’ve made with you, even though we’ve never met”
"I absolutely loved it [STMT X England]! Such care clearly went into every aspect of this box, the really cool collection of objects, the wrapping, the usefulness of the objects but also the quirkiness….it’s like having a couple of globe-trotting friends with excellent taste who share your love of all low-tech writing instruments, stationery and travel."
"Just wanted to send a personal note to say how much I loved your ode to the family road trip. As much as it brought back my own memories, I loved reading about yours too. Sounds like we both owe a lot to our families for encouraging travel at an early age and we are better people for it! I look forward to my package every month!”
"I just have to tell you. I got my first monthly and I’m obsessed. My husband and I are design snobs and literally had ur package on our counter arguing who was going to take the notebook. Awesome holiday gift idea!!!”
“I thought the kits would be a slice of another country…. And I thought it would be great for someone who had lived in that country, or visited, who wanted a tactile piece of memorabilia…. I didn’t know I’d be transported to another country of my own—the past.”
