Interview and Giveaway with Mollie of Wild Olive!

I don't know if you noticed the really cute sheets of paper I've (Kam) been using...the ones with office supplies with little faces? Yeah, those! They're adorable, right? Well, Mollie of Wild Olive knew I was using them for this project, and she offered up a giveaway for those of you participating in the 30 Days of Lists Challenge!

 
But first, I want you to get to know fall madly in love with Wild Olive and Mollie! I asked her a few questions, interview-style, and this is what she has to say:

Tell us a little about Wild Olive:

Wild Olive is where I share all of the crafty things that I'm working
on. My true craft love is embroidery, but I also really like hand
sewing things from felt, and any time that I can help others find this
love, I'm thrilled!

Where do you get your inspiration for your printable lists?
Well, if I'm going to have a piece of paper telling me what to do, it
had better be cute! So I look for things that are sweet, as well as
the opportunity to include silly puns. Oh, and sometimes people send
me ideas for things they'd like to see. I love that!
Are you a lister? Or are you more of a remember-as-I-go type of person?
I am definitely a lister. I make lists for everything! But...I don't
live and die by these lists. Writing them out is therapeutic, and
although I refer to them, I can move on without checking things off.
Do you do other daily journaling?
My blog is the only real journal that I've ever had success with, and
it took years before I got into the groove. If you go through my room,
however, you'll find lots of half-filled journals!

 Time for another giveaway!

I love the 30 Days of Lists! Its making me think about things in life and making me be a little more creative while I'm in school (and totally keeping me from becoming a lifeless high schooler stuck with homework 24/7). I'm totally loving it. And, I am absolutely in LOVE with Wild Olive, but I have yet to purchase anything. My name is Sarah and if by some chance I win this you can email me at heinemannsarah@yahoo.com
(:

Holly F. said...

And finally, I am resisting the urge to make my fourth etsy purchase of the day and get the mini Sweet Otter embroidery pattern at Mollie's Shop.

Amanda said...

I started mid-way through but i"m loving the time of reflection and brain-storming that it offers me everyday.

Laura Odom said...

I've loved doing the 30 days of list... I've done them in sets of 5, because I knew it would be hard for me to keep up daily! :)

I am IN LOVE with 30 Days of Lists so far! I am an artist and I didn't realize just how much I've missed drawing with the hectic-ness that has been going on lately in mine and my wife's lives! From losing our apartment to losing our jobs, it's been crazy. But these lists are something I truly look forward to every day and LOVE a lot!

30 Days of Lists has been keeping me going throughout a pretty hectic term at school. It's been great to preserve lists of things that I'm sure I'll look back on fondly, but also to procrastinate the bajillion papers I'm supposed to write with something fun :D

30 Days of Lists really helped my blog get off the ground! The prompts were so much fun to write about, and I feel like viewers had fun reading them as well. I wish 30 DoL could continue for more than just one month. I think I'm going to continue listing things on my blog even after this month is up!

I love this "30 Days of Lists"! Everyday I can't wait to see what is the new list I get to do. Notice I sd "get to do" ;) Instead of "have to do". there was only one I didn't have a single item for and that was day 4. I actually didn't listen to any music that day, for I was on a road trip w/a friend and all we did was talk no radio!

I would love to do another journal idea w/you guys next month too! You all have such awesome Ideas!
