Happy New Year, everybody!
Looking back at some highlights from 2021:

- Jef Schobert of the Snow Art Zone created a Curbwise LLC snow sculpture (with Trevor chillin').
- Had some nice news/media features on WSAW NewsChannel 7 w/ Drew Sutherland WSAW, USA Today Network / Stevens Point Journal w/ Keith Uhlig (photo by Tork Mason), Stevens Point City Times/Portage County Gazette w/ Taylor John Hale, Hunger Task Force, Inc. w/ Zachary Staszewski, and Common Roots Rising w/ Mark Gehrke.
- A new seasonal pale ale called Pedal On!!! was created in likeless of curbwise. Thanks District 1 Brewing Company for this creative & reslient beverage and supporting my biz!
- Thanks to Rudy Rack for sponsoring w/ metal parts and collaboration.
- Thanks to Hostel Shoppe for sponsoring with winter tires for the trike and sweet deals on gear. Plus, a shout out to Scott Cole for making this happen and pedaling tips!
- Worked with phenomenal videographer, Alex Grant, to produce the curbwise promo video. Thank you, Alex, for your skills and talent!
- Developed 22 new delivery partnerships with local business/farms/orgs: Meet the Herb Halfway, LLC, Zest Bakery and Coffeehouse, Whitefeather Organics, Liberation Farmers, Cattail Organics, Kindred Spirit Books, Mission Coffee House, Assembly Shop, Diversi-Tea LLC, AGORA Makers Market, Rising Sand Organics, Lonely Oak Farm, Process & Bound to Happen Books, FoodWise Portage/Wood Counties, UW-Madison Division of Extension, Hunger Task Force, Inc., in collaboration w/ Aging & Disability Resource Center of Portage County, Stevens Point Housing Authority, Produce Point, Tapped Maple Syrup, Segura & Sons Mushroom Farm, & Emy J's Coffeehouse
- Through hard work, networking, and building relationships, we became 1 of 4 finalists of the Surge biz incubator program through CREATE Portage County & Prevail Bank.
- Expanded delivery operations to include respite deliveries, grocery deliveries from non-partners/individuals, food assistance through the City/County/State, and curbside compost pickups.
- Offset over 1 metric ton of CO2 through over 890 deliveries - Based on the # of replacement miles pedaled (and EPA calculation of 404 grams CO2/mi). Yahoooooooo!

There are many other thanks that are part of our successes, but none more important than all of the wonderful and supportive customers ordering Curbwise LLC for delivery. THANK YOU for a very successful 2021!

Here's to 2022 and many more years of 'Delivery, cranked out.'

Yo! So I’m usually set up somewhere for #smallbusinesssaturday but I thought I would take this weekend off since I’ll be busy for the next few.

There are a bunch of different things available on my website! Original paintings, mugs, shirts, hoodies, puzzles, and more!

You’ll be able to find me in #greenbaywisconsin for “Artisan Christmas” event being held at @badgerstatebrewing next Saturday (December 4th).

Check last slide for details.

I’ll also be at Rose House LLC in December 11th for their Makers Market.

If you can’t wait to see me at these events, hit my website and I’ll ship the goods to you (free shipping of course).

Each web order has a video of me dancing in the email receipt. 🕺🏽😆

You can also hit up AGORA Makers Market and grab a puzzle 🧩 or a clock in person! Lots of options.

Be well everyone!

This week got really busy 😳😅 I’m planning to be out in front of Five Rings Martial Arts this Saturday morning during the #farmersmarket .

I’ve added some stickers to AGORA Makers Market inventory and to my website. In case you all like stickers 😁. I’ll be adding garden flags and toddler size shirts soon (online), as well as some of the paintings I’ve created this week.

I really like how this painting came together. I used a different approach than I usually do for forest paintings and really enjoyed the process. I’ll have to do some variations of this (it already got picked up and taken home).

I still have a giveaway drawing to do 🙃

I’m super excited to start the mural but need to finish up a few things/projects first. It’s going to be an exciting week.

We've kept you waiting long enough, it's time for the location reveal. After more than 50 guesses (many of them right, most of them super close), we are happy to announce that we will be setting up shop with Process in downtown Stevens Point, right across from the library! You may recognize it as AGORA Makers Market 's old space. Congrats to our friend Steph for winning our $25 gift card giveaway!

We are so excited to be part of the downtown Stevens Point community! We're out here tonight for CREATE Portage County's ArtsWalk 2021, but we'll be open the first week of June with a full selection of new fiction, children's, young adult, critical non-fiction, and so much more! Make sure to follow our journey, and we can't wait to see you in the store.

We got new gift cards! We got new gift cards with our actual logo and correct address! We got new gift cards you can USE ONLINE.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, for the month of March we’re gonna have a little gift card promotion: for every $25 in gift cards you purchase, $5 will be added.

So a $25 gift card purchase will be good for $30 in merchandise! $50 = $60, etc. I don’t have to do the math for you, you’re smart. We have preset gift card amounts in our online shop, but if you’d like a different denomination, just send a message and I’ll set you up with a custom order. Or just pop in and buy one in person! xoxoxoxo

I fear this might get a little Live, Laugh, Love.

I've been thinking a lot about what it means to run a business with integrity, and it doesn't include pretending things aren't difficult or that everything is "back to normal" or acknowledging that social media is necessary for small business but can be dumb as hell. The burnout is real.

So in the spirit of authenticity, I'll tell you I took a few days off to deal with some grief and bad feelings and a LOT of crying. You know what happened? The algorithm ABSOLUTELY BURIED US. Last Year Me would have said "well, this is what you get for taking a break" and tried to make a tiktok about it. This Year Me knows my productivity isn't equal to my value, that I needed a few days for myself, and DARN IT I'll do it again.

I truly appreciate all of you who have shopped with us, shared a post, told a friend, or just waved when you walked by. But also please buy stuff from us, thanks. 🥰 Love, Carrie

Do you know the positive effects of greeting cards? Seriously. It's a thing. A tangible card signifies touch between the sender and recipient, and may help people feel more connected. A greeting card can help someone feel less alone and boost their self-worth. Choosing a card and including a personal note requires time and thought. The effort may help the recipient feel valued and worthwhile.

You don't need a special occasion to send a card. Let people know you care for them and you're thinking of them any day!

Carrie here. I’m fibbing - I actually love my job, but this mug makes me laugh and boundaries are important, so to continue loving it I’ll be taking a little personal time until next week. Which means our social media is -gasp!- FULLY AUTOMATED until I peel myself off my couch.

If you have questions about an order or a product, please drop a line to [email protected] so someone gets back to you.

Valentine’s Day or nah, these wildly popular rice packs are back in stock and make great gifts for people you love (including yourself!) Just pop them in the microwave, and they not only soothe aches and pains, but the weight is oddly comforting. Like a cat…but doesn’t do things like try to eat your hair while you’re sleeping.

The Soffe shorts you remember from gym class, but way way better. I know it’s still cold and I don’t care - I can’t keep these a secret. Roll that waistband down and show off those gams.
