olive manna & hooray giveaway



In December, Natalie Jost (from Olive Manna) and I were brainstorming about collaborating on a project together, and eventually we (read: Natalie) thought of the creative idea to do a Valentine's theme giveaway: small paper-covered canisters filled with goods from the both of us.

We put together items inspired by our two shops, Olive Manna & Hooray, and we're giving away 2 canisters, one here on my blog and one on Natalie's.

The exact contents of each canister are a surprise - they're filled with paper items like heart confetti, tags, mailing labels, photo corners, & a lot more (you'd be surprised how much we fit into these tiny canisters, we got a little crazy with it!).


heart flags & cloth bag with red brads...


"hello, love" mini scrolls...


heart confetti + colored clothespins...

We hope these canisters can be used for a variety of creative projects such as packaging, gift giving, Valentine's Day, & everyday crafting. If you'd like one, simply leave a comment here to enter to win. Extra entries allowed for twitter/blog referrals. And don't forget to also visit Natalie's blog to enter for more chances at winning. Best of luck and happy crafting this Valentine's!

PS. If you'd like to share your creative ideas for Valentine's day as your comment I'd love to hear...

*Update: The winner is Thea from Australia. She's been contacted, and thanks to everyone for your support!

OMG--all this stuff looks so amazing! I would love to win this. My husband works as a bartender, and service industry employees NEVER get Valentine's Day off, so we'll be celebrating on the 15th...probably dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Melting Pot, and then home to a nice fire and to cuddle with our dogs :)

My girlfriend and I are pretty nerdy when it comes to Valentine's Day. This year, I'm thinking we'll just spend a night ignoring all the chores and playing video games into the night. <3

Nikki Jeske said...

Also, threw in a tweet. :)

This giveaway is sooo cute! Thank you for the opportunity!

Sandy said...

awww this is so adorable! thanks for the chance to win. one cute idea for valentine's day is to write little notes on different pieces of scrap book paper and roll them up. throw them into a mason jar decorated with a cute ribbon and give it to your loved one. make sure they only read one per day for as many strips as you make, they'll always be looking forward to the next day! <3

Jessica Jewkes said...

These canisters that you and Olive Manna made have a lot of love put into it. What a sweet giveaway you are both doing. Thanks so much and I hope that I win :)

Shannon said...

Ooh, sounds like a sweet valentine! I'd love to win some Hooray and Olive Manna goodness. :)

Melissa Y. Allam said...

Yeah, I love your shop and I just recently ordered a shopping list notebook from Olive Manna. I don't usually do much for Valentines Day, but there is so much cute stuff online this year, I can't help myself. We will probably be going out with friends to dinner since we both celebrated our 14th wedding anniversaries this year in Jan.

Hello, I'm Emily Clare. said...

This is an altogether delightful giveaway!
This year I created my own valentines from scratch! The design involves a petal-envelope template and mini-envelopes filled with pink and red raffle tickets. I stamped XOXO on all the tickets and they peek out of the envelope when the petals are opened.
I'm probably more excited to give them than people are to get them. :-)
Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

swell.life said...

love this idea! i just finished glittering about a dozen chipboard hearts and hanging them from the chandelier above our dining room table. it's delightful.
