Elliven Studio Review and Giveaway


One night when blog hopping I came across a site called Lovely Clusters and here this very smart women had listed "crafty" blogs by region. I headed to the Canadian section and was surprised to find someone from Winnipeg. Of course I had to see what the fellow 'pegger was offering so I hopped on over to elliven studio.

Here I found exactly what I have always needed, not wanted by needed! For all of you who know me, you know that I constantly lose my bank card. I toss in in the back pocket of my jeans and forget that its there, so it ends up in the laundry only to be never seen again! This is a source of contention in my household, because I then take the hubby's to shop and forget to put it back. Next thing you know he can't pay for his gas..opps!

Anyways, at ellieven studio I found the prettiest of Mommy necessities~a mini card holder and coupon/receipt holder. I was so impressed with not only the idea of these products but with how pleasing they were to look at. The fabrics that Julie (creator) chooses are fresh, playful and oh so pretty. Ever the shopper I knew I had to get these.

I contacted Julie to see if I could possibly get a matching set before I placed my order through her Etsy shop. My email was answered promptly and in that email she not only offered to make me a matching accessory set but she offered to give it to me to do a review on. Much more than I was anticipating!

Only a few days later I got another email from this busy Mama of two boys, saying that my matching accessory set was complete, both were finished in my fabric of choice a colourful Amy Butler original called "Love". Since we both live in the same city, we figured that it should only take a few days for my package to arrive. Clearly my mailman did not have the same idea~I had to wait over the weekend to get my gift. On Monday it finally arrived, along with 13 other pieces of mail, oh joy!

I, of course, opened up my package first~completely neglecting the other ominous letters calling my name. My accessory set was wrap in matching pink tissue so everything co-ordinated very nicely. Also included were two beautiful hand made cards, that Julie creates as well. One for me to have and one addressed to me. The one addressed to me had a personal hand written note to me and two very professional business cards. I thought that adding a hand written note was such a nice touch, no one "writes" anymore, but I think the that when someone takes the time out of an obviously busy day to make that extra step it says a lot about them.

I couldn't be more happy about my set~ I pulled out my license and bank card from my overstuffed wallet and stuck them in my new card holder, perfect fit!! I then sorted my stack of receipts and coupons strewn about in my diaper bag, wallet and purse. I divided them up and neatly tucked them away opposite one another in the divided pockets of the receipt holder. I feel like such an organized lady now, well at least on the outside!

That night, I had to run to the grocery store and I LOVED the fact that I just grabbed my keys and mini card holder. No purse, no bulky diaper bag, just the ease of having my necessities zipped into my vest pocket. I was also able to fold $20 into the one of the divided pockets of the card holder.

Julie also makes makes and sells sunglasses holders,checkbook holders, notepad holders and gorgeous stationary products. Each item she makes herself and the quality of her creations is top notch with exceptional value because her prices are very fair. If you are looking for a unique hostess gift or just trying to make your life a little easier, please take the time out of you day to visit Julies Etsy shop.
