My sisters and I used to scheme and dream about owning our own paper shop. We all have a thing for paper goods. The color, design, and texture possibilities are endless! So naturally, when I heard about Olive Box I had to take a moment to simmer down for a little bit. A paper subscription service where you receive a box of stationary goodies every month! Well here’s my little story about how I scored my first ever Olive Box…
I was feeling like Saturday was going to be a good day being June 1st and all. June is the month I was born AND my anniversary month AND the month this baby will be born….so its gotta be a good month, right??
I hit up the Maiedae Mixer and basked in all of the creative detailed glory it had to offer. I got to meet a blogging friend, Barb of Knack Studios (you know, the brilliant mind behind this book) which was so refreshing. Well she was the lucky duck that night and won the Olive Box that night in the raffle (me and raffles never seem to co-ordinate our stars). Apparantly Barb had just received one of her own Olive Box full of goodies so since I happened to be in the right place at the right time (aka, hovering like an awkward bookworm stalker), she so kindly gave her winnings to me. A generous and authentic one she is. So that is my little story and now I share the eye candy with you!
This month’s box contained:
Notecard Set from Fawnsberg – that I may just frame and never use…
Vintage Blossom Notebook from Rifle Paper Co. – obviously a winner and everyone’s favorite line.
Floral Fabric Puspins from A Girl of All Work – already in use above my desk.
The cutest calling cards on the block (not sure who by!).
