Giveaway: Kate and Oli Notecards

Winner has been chosen and contest in now closed, thanks!




It's giveaway time again! This time I'm proud to feature Kate and Oli on Etsy, a cute shop that's full of fun handmade paper goods. Kate is generously offering a set of Paper Airplane Cards to one lucky winner, yay! Let's get to know Kate and her shop:


1. How did you choose the name of your shop?

Well, Kate and Oli came about organically after I thought of a bunch of other, artsy, totally random names. Then, I thought, wait, who's doing this? Me. Me and Oliver (my cat). So, Kate and Oli was born!

2. What made you decide to open your shop?

I discovered etsy in early 2009 and lurked around on there as a buyer for a few months. One day, I saw a card I liked but wished I could tweak slightly. I went to Michaels that very day and purchased a huge bag of card-making supplies and I just churned them out. I opened up my etsy shop about a week later!








3. How do you fit time to create into your day?

Gosh, I wish I could say I did! I always feel like my crafting time comes at the expense of something else, be it my boyfriend or my house-cleaning or maybe even dinner on some nights. I wish I could find a way to say "Tuesdays at 7:30 is crafting time," but right now it's more like "Go away, I'm making cards."



4. What's your favorite thing about having an Etsy shop?


I LOVE seeing all of the fabulous handmade items that other people create. I could troll Etsy for hours. Well, I DO troll Etsy for hours. I love the forums and the chat rooms and jumping from shop to shop finding what amazing items come from people's imaginations. It's so inspiring to me!

Be sure to check out Kate on Facebook, Twitter and her blog.






Ok, ready to win a set of Paper Airplane Cards? There are six possible entries, none of them are mandatory, please leave a separate comment for each entry - multiple entries in one comment won't be counted, thanks! Also, make sure I have a way to reach you if you win, an email address (youATwhereverDOTcom), etsy shop, or Ravelry name are all fine. Contest is open to both US and international folks - contest ends Monday morning, June 21st. Good luck!


1. Check out Kate and Oli on Etsy and then comment here letting me know your favorite item.

My favorites from her store are the putting roots down cards and the vintage maps card. Both of those could have so many different uses.

Heather said...

I really like the map cards. But I'm also partial to the Enncy Weency cards (Wait...did I get that right?) Perfect gift size!
