Nerds, Lend Me Your Cerebrums

Olive Box

{Because fine papers get me as excited as a new pair of Choos}

Bolognese sauce, Reeses peanut butter cups, raw cookie dough, Charlotte Olympias and stationary — these are a few of my favorite things. So when I caught wind of Olive Box — a stationary subscription service — on Electric Blogarella, I signed up. As a member ($25 each month) you receive a delightful box of paper and lifestyle products delivered to your front door each month — from cards to artwork to inspiring books to gifts. The photo above is my very first delivery packed with cute-as-a-button thumbtacks, callings cards, notebook and stationary.

During an age of electronic everything, I’ve remained excited over beautiful, handwritten letters and receiving a physical gift in the mail. So if you, too, are a paper purist like me or are in need of the perfect present for someone else — this is IT.
