We are Dan Herzing and ‘Lovely Leah Ruth’ Herzing, the couple behind Cardinal + Finch.  Following an incurable cancer diagnosis, we have been given the gift of time. Our time has been used wisely to love and support one another, as well as our son, with laughter, perfecting the art of listening, and maintaining joy and gratitude.

After three years, we have decided to use part of our daily time together to make unique gift boxes that we know help others express love and support when it is difficult to know what to do. It is an endeavor of the heart.

Leah, our passionate artist and designer, is also our jack-of-all-trades. Dan enjoys his role as floral designer and a cheerful delivery man. Leah’s father, ‘Grandpa Don,’ keeps busy in the wood shop crafting our boxes.

Cardinal + Finch is named in honor of both Mary Hodel and Joan Summer,  Leah’s mother and aunt. This new adventure is in memory of Mary and Joan’s joy and love for others, as well as the generosity of spirit Dan and Leah have encountered on their own unique journey.

Thank you for your support!
