Many love letters become cherished for a lifetime. They are kept in a special place, and one day become an heirloom that serves as a tangible representation to future generations of legacies of unwavering devotion. Though “I love you” is often the identifying mark of such a letter, there’s a simple phrase that has come to mean more to many marriages than the aforementioned statement more commonly used to profess affection… I Still Do.
There’s something so incredibly significant about the covenant formed upon taking vows, that a simple reminder of that commitment is a powerful thing. For that reason, last autumn ink artisans from around the globe joined together by lovingly contributing hand-made, one-of-a-kind cards and wall art reflecting their artistic interpretation of those three words, “I Still Do.”. Cards were created to encourage couples to write and exchange meaningful messages to one another as a reminder of their lasting commitment to love and to cherish. Wall art was lovingly crafted to be displayed in homes as a reminder that marriage matters. Each of these items came together in a collaborative effort to uplift marriage.

These one of a kind creations are available for purchase through the Kel and Mel shop, and all of the proceeds from the sales of these items are directly applied towards funding the I Still Do Project, through which, complimentary wallet-sized “I Still Do” cards are distributed nationwide to husbands and wives (beginning February 15 while supplies last, annually). This means that you can pick up an original, one of a kind piece of art that serves as a beautiful reminder of your ongoing commitment in your own marriage, while simultaneously supporting a great cause.
