I signed up for Structured Chaos' Swap Shop and Blog party. The long list of women involved were inspiring and I felt I had much to live up to. I received my package in the mail from the outrageously talented Natalie Jost, the creative spirit and owner behind Olive Manna.
All photos below are from her site; my poor lighting won't give justice to her beautiful products and these pictures are as close as pretty compared to having them IRL.
I loved her items so much, I went for seconds, and recently thirds for Christmas gifts! Her prices are reasonable, and crafted and designed so meticulously, it's such a great deal to find paper goods that you can't wait to gift (or keep a few for yourself, it was a tough decision).
Her design doesn't stop at her shop, her blog is full of inspiration from downloadables, her great eye for etsy finds and Bible verses to keep your spirit up (if that's where you find your main inspiration). Just be sure to watch your time, a couple hours can be well spent browsing her archives.
Thank you again, Natalie ♥
