“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

~William Arthur Ward


I found out about these lovely boxes of quotes from Bee Inspired in the November, 2010 issue of Whole Living. I’ve always had a love for inspirational quotes. I’ve got a stack of books that are filled with quotes and I’ve found that it really helps me start my day off on a positive note to read something inspirational and uplifting first thing each morning.

I love that each of these beautiful boxes contain a year’s worth of daily inspirational messages that are each hand rolled and hand tied into a small scroll. The boxes of quotes, which come in several different themes, such as Marital Bliss, Success, and Motherhood, start at $29.00 and would make a perfect gift for a special person in your life.

Here’s the story about how Kristen Novak was inspired to create these beautiful boxes full of quotes. :-)

The Bee Inspired Story

When I learned from my sister, Kelly, that her newborn child was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, I was at a loss as to how I could help her during this transitional time. We had always been close at heart, but now the distance between Saginaw, Michigan and Chicago, Illinois seemed worlds apart.

I desperately wanted to be there to give her daily hugs and support. That is when the idea of sending an “inspirational quote a day” was born. It was my way of being there to give her a “pick me up” when I could not, delivered exactly when she needed it most.

My love for inspirational quotes and the way they positively affect people’s lives inspired me to create a box filled with these treasures. After carefully selecting quotes to be shared with my sister, I individually hand rolled and tied each scroll with raffia. Then, I placed them in a custom designed box. Now I had a gift uplifting to the soul and beautiful to the eye!

This gift helped bridge the miles between us and let her know I was always with her at heart.

My hope is that this gift will inspire you and you might reach out and share the buzz with others.

Hugs and Smiles,

Kristin's Signature
