Hello! We are Audrius and Virginija, and we live in Kaunas, Lithuania. Woodstorming is where we sell our original ring boxes, office accessories, and home decorations.
Audrius and I enjoy the creative process and making things for fun, so naturally our business started out as a hobby. Our family members were always happy to get handmade presents from us, but we never intended to sell our objects – all of this started when one of our friends saw our ring boxes and told us about Etsy.
Our designs require a lot of handwork and are made with great attention to detail. We make everything from scratch, and it is amazing to see a plain piece of wood turn into something special. We often try to think about what we could make that would surprise our customers. Our inspiration comes from a strong desire to create new and better things.
One of our most popular products is our wooden ring box. Every day we hear new, interesting stories about engagement and wedding plans: high in the mountains, on the beach, in the forest, during vacation to an exotic country, and so on. Our task is to think not only about the ring box itself, but also all of the small details, like packing everything carefully to avoid giving any clues about what’s inside. In fact, the most common request from our buyers is to send the package to neighbors or parents!
Because every box has a story, our job is never boring. It’s amazing to communicate with so many different people and imagine our creations traveling all over the world! And we always enjoy seeing the happy couples’ engagement and wedding photos.
Our ring boxes were the first thing we presented on Etsy, and their success encouraged us to keep going. We are thankful for the Etsy Lithuania Team (and the other teams we belong to) for offering their help and support. Because of Etsy, we were able to quit our day job and do what we really like. Our creative business brings more and more joy, positivity and the best emotions.
