Welcome to Etz-Ron's first newsletter!Actually Etz-Ron is me, Amy Gilron. "Etz" means wood in Hebrew and "Ron" is my part of our last name, the name my husband and I created together when we combined our two names shortly after we married ! In Hebrew Gilron means "shout for joy" , or "mirth and joy" (or "double joy!"). I do all the designing, crafting, and finishing for all Etz-Ron products as well as keeping the internet site up to date, and now , this newsletter. In addition to all this, I also run a home complete with a (too-big) garden and a dog.
Keeping you up to dateIf you have received this newsletter, it is because you are a current or former client or have requested to receive it. If you do not want to receive the newsletter just email me. I plan to write to you about once a month to let you know about new products, and keep you up to date w/ the comings and goings at Etz-Ron, and maybe add an historical fact or two and/or a woodworking tip.
Introduce yourself to meI welcome your reply to this newsletter and ask that you introduce yourself to me so that I can get to know you and what you do. And, if you have any suggestions for me in terms of a new product or a topic for a future newsletter, I would be happy to hear about that also.
