Congratulations Mary!!!!

queen beeRarely in our lives do we get to meet someone highly inspirational, unbelievably witty and funny, and yet so personal . . .  let alone get the chance to work with such a person every day!  Well . . . all of us at who work with Mary Engelbreit are blessed as we get the best of both worlds.  When you consider her massive achievements in the world of social expression, home furnishings, and overall licensing, we feel truly honored to witness all that she creates on a daily basis and to be a part of that world.  And yet she faces each day with an unabashed sense of humor and style which is reflected in her artwork – that of an everyday woman (albeit one that runs a multimillion dollar business, deals with a Studio full of crazy people, and has the same trials and tribulations of any working Mom and wife in America).

We marvel each day when Mary brings in her newest creations, and continue to scratch our heads wondering how anyone could be so creative and inventive after 30 plus years in this business.  We love what she does, we love working with her, and we love having her as a friend!

And now Mary is being honored with the Greeting Card Association’s highest award – the LOUIE for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement!  How fitting for a woman known and loved throughout the world!

Mary . . . on behalf of everyone at the Studio, and your fans everywhere, CONGRATUALTIONS on bringing so much joy, fun and inspiration into our lives, for being who you are, and for deciding to pursue art as a career!  We are so happy for the acknowledgment the industry is giving to you!

When I had my card and gift shops, you always had prime space for display … it always kept growing as you introduced more and more product.
