Great Arrow Goodness
I found beautiful small notecards today – in the cutest shop – and along with chocolate!!! I always melt for richly colored, fully textured, small sweet gifts that I can pick up and soak in with all my senses – and today I found all that in small gift cards, hand screened by Great Arrow Graphics – and displayed with the carmel chocolate popcorn balls at Choco Logo – 141 Broadway in Buffalo.
Great Arrow Graphics silkscreens each of their cards by hand – here in Buffalo at the Trimain Center. Each color stands on it’s own against the other colors which all fit together to create an original contempory design. My favorite has a deep water blue back ground and a simple house sketch – in a sparkly gray. This is the type of card that showcases the gift… it’s all in the details of presentation! Visit Choco Logo’s retail venue, or go straight to the Great Arrow website for 699 additional varieties! Full size cards can also be found at Talking Leaves or the Lexington Co-Op.

Megan Mills Hoffman, Alaskan-born and raised, arrived in Buffalo in 2003 thinking she'd stay for a few months, much like her other brief sojourns in Missoula, Montana; Oxford, Mississippi; Portland, Oregon; and Albany, New York. Then she discovered Wegman's cheese aisle and Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House, the first of which reminded her of her mother's experience living outside Manchester, England and the second of her father's experience in construction in Alaska. While discovering Buffalo's others treasures, she worked with Buffalo Rising as it first expanded online, the Burchfield Penney Art Center's New Museum Project, Buffalo State College, Western New York Land Conservancy, Young Audiences, and The Gow School. She has served on the boards of the Allentown Association, Mandala School, Western New York Environmental Alliance, and Field and Fork Network. With a B.S. in Sociology and twenty plus years of experience working in community development and grassroots organizations, she has embraced, developed, launched, and established, to varying degrees of success, a variety of local social movements, all directed at changing the way we think about our education and learning. She lives in a small town south of Buffalo, much like the one she grew up in, with her Buffalo-born husband, daughter, and Bernese Mountain dog.
