Serving Those Whom Have Served

June 3, 2013

Rawl Custom Order PixlrI always get a little giddy when I get a new order in.  Once the notification comes through, I’ll do the pitter patter of a happy dance, and utter a little huzzah!

This last time it was a little bit different.  A custom note was attached:  “My son was killed in Afghanistan several months ago, and I was looking for a photo album to put his pictures of his deployment in. This is PERFECT! You do beautiful work. I would like it personalized, please. Thank you for using your talent in such a precious way.”

I held my breath and froze.  What an honor, and it confirmed the fact that one should never take the little things in life for granted.

When I got out of the military, I found myself so aloof in the civilian world.  I felt so awkward and it took me awhile to adjust.  I remember a time when I used to be so scared, not knowing what I was going to do after I stopped serving.  I realize now that I never really stopped, it’s just in a different way now.  I am so lucky to put my creative side to good use and help others.

With that, Peaknits is offering a 10% off on everything to our veterans through Troopswap.  If you’re not familiar with the company, you just need to register/verify your service through them, grab your discount code and enter it in our website upon checkout.  It’s very similar to Groupon, only geared towards military, veterans and their families.    There are some really awesome deals on there, ranging from movie tickets to skydiving.  Go check it out!
