Wow! Thank you for introducing me to Olive Manna – I am loving the Harvest Collection, particularly the Harvest Leaves fabric in red and the Harvest Diamonds fabric in Orange. They take me back to my childhood spent at my grandparents camp in the Adirondacks. I can remember the bed linens being of similar design – and they were SO cozy!

Tiffany

I am most looking forward to taking it back to the basics this holiday season. I had a rough go of things last year around this time, and I know I was so absorbed in my own life that I failed to spread even the smallest amount of holiday cheer. My family has been so incredibly kind and supportive to me throughout my trials, and this year I want to thank them by letting go of the past and focusing on the here and now. They deserve to celebrate and enjoy the holidays – and I am going to everything I can to make that happen for them!

Tiffany

I love all the printables and the French Country Collection. Both are simple, classy and easy to use…all of my favorite things.

Ever year I look forward to my baking frenzy with my girlfriends. We mass produce baked goods to give away as holiday gifts. It’s a great time and we get a lot of holiday gifts done all at once!

Thanks for the entry!

Joanna

Since I”m on the road, I’m going to elect the second way to play. I’m most looking forward to a break from law school and a month at home with my parents, niece, brother and sister-in-law, and my closest friends!

Melissa

I really love the printed gift shipping tags, the sayings are so cute! thank you for this fun giveaway!

Casey

this year, I cannot wait for my son to rip open his presents! I love when a kid has that first year of really experiencing it

Casey

Goodness! I love it all…I’m especially fond of the “Jute Box,” both because of the product and the packaging. Plus, I’m a sucker for a good play on words!

Victoria Terlap

The thing I am most looking forward to this year is hearing what everyone is most thankful for. Best. Thanksgiving. Tradition. Ever!

Victoria Terlap

This year for Christmas, we hope that my husband finally gets a job offer. He’s been unemployed since July and we’ve had to move in order to be closer to a bigger city for more opportunities. These little lovelies would be awesome to win!!!

catherine s.

Oh….drool, drool….

Yes, I am a recovering paper addict, so the PDF of the paper set here:

has caused me to falter once again…awesome prints for a household with a two year or just for the kid in me 🙂

catherine s.

I love the “Shaking me” tags. I need one for every gift under the tree! The colored twine is also great, I can think of so many ways to use it…

Lorrie

This fabric is wonderful! http://olivemanna.com/shop/245-fabric.html

I’m looking forward to being with my family and spending more time with my friends. Since I live in the desert, I’m also looking forward to the trip home to find some snow, fireplaces, and hot chocolate. 🙂

Kimberly Creagan

I love the Melamine Dishware / Checks & Balances / Black Checks. It is a sophisticated item that would be enjoyable when the weather gets warmer for and outdoor dining.

Maureen

I am looking forward to my brother and his wife and two young children coming to the US. They live overseas and haven’t been back to the US in a year and a half. I have yet to meet their young son who just turned one.

Always loved Olive Manna’s patterns and fabrics! And it’s nice that she has a section for ‘Downloads’ where we can print out our own labels and other such pretty things. 🙂

One of my favorite things from her store is this: http://olivemanna.com/shop/151-corner-bookmarks.html

Never seen any bookmark like it and it makes me not want to ever finish the book just so I can keep looking at it. hahaha

Hazel

I like her MELAMINE PLATE – WINTER SCENE because I’m a sucker for anything featuring trees!

What I am most looking forward to this year during the holiday season is… seeing my 4 years old nephew and his sister, just a few months old! They’re the best.

Natalie’s shop is exquisite.
I love everything but if I had to pick it would be the 10 blank notebooks, so pretty.

I am most looking forward to actually hosting the holiday at my house this year! It’s going to be a small gathering but it will be cozy and festive with cute handmade decor and lots of cookies.

Emily

Christmas will be special this year as my entire family will be together to celebrate Christ’s birth, family, giving and LOVE!

This holiday season, I’m looking forward to decorating the house and visiting with all of my cousins (I have 26 of them).

Kristin B

What a great opportunity! I LOVE Natalie’s fabric- especially the Sun Soaking Pennants in green… it will probably be my next purchase from her shop.

MichelleD

I am actually looking forward to a scaled-down holiday season and the focus turning from the material to what really matters… spending quality time with family and friends!

MichelleD

I love the polka dot trees in berry and blues! So many wonderful things to choose from at Natalies shop! Hard to pick a fav but this is definitely one fav on my list.

Stacy

I think the one thing I’m most looking forward to is the joy and excitement I see in the kids at this time of year. We have taught them that Jesus is the reason for the season but they are just so darned excited about gifts and goodies and fun it’s awesome!

Stacy

I’ve just started blogging and am very excited to have that creative outlet. Check out my link!

http://www.inspiredtosew.blogspot.com/

I’ve loved Natalie’s site for a long time and found your blog through her! Cheers to both of you for a beautiful job. Love it!

Stacy

Well, I am currently “fun-employed” so I am looking forward to using my extra free time to make creative, crafty holiday presents for everyone. (a must since…you know….fun-employment doesn’t pay very well…)

Brandi

Beautiful!

Rachel Dallaire

That prize pack is amazing!!

I love the Olive Manna fabrics – especially the Polka Trees http://olivemanna.com/shop/245-fabric.html So cute!

LisaB

This Christmas I’m looking forward to the break from work and a chance to do some holiday crafting – I’ve got some ideas for homemade gifts that I’m excited about!

LisaB

Oh, I just love the entire shop. My fave things are the wrap around address labels because I’m constantly looking for cute ones to use and they’re hard to come by. Natalie’s are perfect.

Melanie

This holiday season I’m most looking forward to my husband’s finals being over and just being able to relax with him.

Melanie

I posted about this shop (because it really is my fave) here: http://www.youaremyfave.com/2009/11/olive-manna-is-my-fave.html

Melanie

I love the blue spoon fabric – I think it would make the cutest apron!

Paige

What I am looking forward to most:

Spending Christmas in Colorado and hopefully having a white Christmas. I live in Phoenix, so a white Christmas is not something I’ve seen in a very long time!

Paige

I have admired Olive Manna for sooo long! I LOVE the melamine dishware – especially the Sun Soaking / Doily, Lemon one! Perfect for summer BBQs! I also am fawning over all the paper goods! 🙂

Margarita

I love the Berry Ice/Polka Tree fabric on Olive Manna! This Christmas, I think I am most looking forward to attending my best friend’s birthday party. It’s a surprise party and as I’m flying in for the event, she’ll be REALLY surprised to see me there!!! 🙂

Sarah

I like the colorful Hand-Painted Clothespin Clips / Blue + Fuschia, both favorite colors of mine and sure to add a splash to my decor!

Michele P.

I am looking forward to spending time with my mom-it will be a difficult holiday since my dad and grandmother both passed away this past year-but the kids and I and my mom will make it through just fine with a great meal and presents. My hubby is supposed to go to Guatemala to visit his siblings and parents as well, it’s been years since he’s been there for a holiday celebration so while I will be missing him we’ll be in touch by phone.

The thing I am looking forward to the most is helping my son understand the true meaning of Christmas.

april

The shopping list booklets are so cute, I think the vines cover is my favorite

Natalie

The gift tags that say “Shaking me won’t tell you anything” literally made me bust out laughing! I found my bf shaking his presents yesterday. I soooo need this!

Katie B.

My favorite Olive Manna product right now is the pink fire paper set. The designs are all so cute! and the color scheme inspires not only decor-wise but even fashion-wise.

Lilia

Ohhh! I love Olive Manna’s Amanda Lynne Vines fabric! (It too me a while to settle on just 1 favorite :)) And as for what I am looking forward to this year? Well, as a single mom of 3, gifts can be difficult…but my kids got the bestest gift…they get to go with their grandparents to Hawaii! I could never afford to take them on a fancy vacation, let alone Hawaii, so I am excited that they get to experience travel (and they won’t have to deal with ice and snow for their entire winter break! :)) Thanks for the chance to win!

Carlee

I’m particularly impressed with the product photos! Everything is so beautifully shot making them irresistible! My favourite has to be the bauble kits… anything to get the children involved!

Lolley

Such fabulous work! My favorite item has to be the Little Neighborhood print, I love it!

Anna Ruby

Oh my gosh! I need to win this one, thanks for the fabulous giveaway!
I love the “Paisley Note Cards”. I’m a sucker for paisley and love pink, so that’s my choice.
Thanks!

Julie

My favorite part of the holidays-and what I look forward to most-is having my children home! My youngest will be home from college, my newly engaged son and his future bride will be here and my daughter and her boyfriend as well. It has become more fun as the years go by as our family grows!

Susan Mulder

This holiday season I’m most looking forward to knowing that my husband will be home for theh holidays. Since he is in the cdn air force, we never really know if he’ll be home for Christmas until the last minute. So to know he’ll be here is a wonderful treat!

Julie

love the “shaking me won’t tell you anything.” tag!! so cute!! =D

Lisa

i am looking forward to spending time with my family! i am engaged this year so it makes things extra special. plus i have twin nieces now, and they add a lot of fun to the bunch!

I like the DIY Paper Ball ornaments – they are simple and charming. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

Elena

What beautiful styling and photography. I really like the cute little gift tag labels “do not open unless your name is…” and “this lovely package is especially for you”. So sweet. And also, the little bag that the teeny wooden pegs come in – I love the stamping on.

Ellie - Petalplum

I love Mini Clothespin Clips….

this year, i am looking forward to staying home for the holidays. for 10 years my husband, dogs and i have driven 12.5 hours to spend the holidays with our family. it’s nice knowing we don’t have to prepare for the long drive and i’m so looking forward to having time to do some christmas crafts!

dana

What a talented designer! I love all of the wrapping paper, but this one is my favorite:
http://olivemanna.com/shop/197-wap-sheets.html

Freshie

Awesome giveaway. I love everything that she does and love the patterns.

My favorite part of the holiday is trying to dress up the house with Christmas stuff. It feels really cozy and home-y for some reason.

thanks for doing this 😉

– Julia

julia

I dont know how to pick a favorite . . . so, my favorite wrapping paper is Peppermint Drops, Multi!!

Cat

What I am looking forward to most this year during the holiday season is a really hard question. I am pretty sure I wont be able to go home this year, which makes it a pretty sad Christmas. So . . . I guess I am looking forward to decorating and cooking.

Cat

What I am looking forward to the most this holiday season is celebrating it “our” way with my new fiancé. Since we are very newly engaged and saving the the wedding ourselves, money is a little tight.

We’ve decided to forgo gifts this year and make our celebration about our love and happiness. Who could ask for a better gift than spending time with the one you love!?!

Beth Ann Jaworski

I have to go with entry option two 🙂

I’m most looking forward to the way the pace of everything slows down over the 2 weeks of christmas and new years, so I can actually spend *time* with friends and family without worrying about the massive to-do list piling up.

nora

I’m looking forward to giving my friends and family their presents! I love picking out just the right thing for everyone on my list each year, and this year I’m going to have more time to do home made gifts than I had expected. I hope everyone loves what I have for them!

Hilary

Thanks for this great giveaway!
My fave is this cute card:

What am I looking forward in this holiday season?
– Chrismukkah dinners 🙂
– having some rest
– cooking some good food

vadjutka

So glad to see this great online shop! My favorite collection is the lime candy shown in the giveaway. What fabulous designs and colors!

Polly

I love the paisley note cards. Too often we forget that little sentiments really matter to people and I love to send out pretty notes like the paisleys to people I love!

I’m looking forward to this holiday season the most because it’s my first one with my boyfriend and I’m excited to see what’s in store!

Judith

I really like the Tree Leaves Blank Note Cards in red. I think the design is really cute and I like that they’re blank so you can use them for everyday. I also like the Paisley Aqua Pink blank note cards. I’ve always liked paisley, but I was attracted to these because of the color combination.

Erika H.

I’m looking forward to decorating our home. My husband and I have a tradition that when we’re decorating our tree and home that we listen to Christmas carols and drink egg nog. It’s simple, but I always enjoy the memories it creates.

Erika H.

Ilove the “Shaking won’t tell you anything” tag. How cute!

Nycole

I am looking forward to spending the holiday’s with my boyfriend’s family. Being Jewish we didn’t get into the “Christmas Spirit” so now I get to do all of it and it’s pretty great!

Nycole

The simplicity of the designs are fabulous! I love the string, velum and old fashioned tags in the collection. It reminds me of the tiny memory box of items that I played with and collected as a kid, using them to make many special things.

Duncan Ragsdale

I love the tree fall note cards in yellow- they look really well made and I could use them to send notes to my sisters. the fabric is really nice too.

Janae

I love the Shaking Me tag – my husband shakes EVERY present, and can usually tell what it is before unwrapping. This would be perfect! Thanks!

Nicole D.

I am most looking forward to my daughter coming downstairs on Christmas Day. She’s 3 and this is the first year that she really “gets” the whole Santa and presents thing. 🙂

Nicole D.

What a great giveaway from such a talented artist!
I Love the Corner Bookmarks. what a lovely inventive place holder for my favorite pass time.

Tutti

ok, I’m in love with their Spring Morning Doily Jotter, beautiful pattern on the outside, but also the perfect size notebook to keep nearby often.
they also have amazing dishes, I adore their Melamine Dishware / Sun Soaking / Doily, Lemon plate, as well as the platter. bright sunny colors that still look clean and fresh, welcoming food.

Brooke

What are you looking forward to most this year during the holiday season?
I cant wait for lots of time with my tiny niece and being with just the immediate family for cozy Christmas dinner and gifts <3

I love see my son’s faces watching the Three Kings, Santa, the presents…. I love Christmas!!!!

janil

This stuff is so awesome!

Her jute box item is so great, but I am laughing like crazy about her “shaking me won’t tell you anything” tags. Those are pure genius. I must have them.

I am looking forward to my very first traditional Byzantine Catholic Christmas Eve and Christmas celebration this year. Perhaps this seems like a weird thing to look forward to, but it’s the truth.

susan

http://olivemanna.com/shop/282-gift-guide-lime-candy.html

I love the simplicity of this card!

Abby

I’m looking forward to moving house this holiday season!
We are currently renting a small, dark, mould & slug infested, freezing-cold-in-winter, stinking-hot-in-summer house with our rapidly growing two boys and we’ve found a big, light, bright, happy house with an ENORMOUS backyard for the crazies to run around (& wear themselves out) in – I CAN’T WAIT!
😀

candice

What a gorgeous shop!
I would choose it all, it’s all utterly incredible!
My faves would probably be the Jotter 10-pack (I can’t have enough note books, I need to write things down to remember!), the Melamine Dishware / Sun Soaking / Pennants dishes (love the colours & patterns, make me think of happy summer holidays) & the Melamine Plate or Platter / Sun Soaking / Doily dishes (again, the colours & such a pretty pattern).
Plus all the fabrics!
Thank you!
😀

candice

I like the peppermint notecards and the January man notecards. Thanks for the chance to win.

i love the mix of holiday style….we celebrate two holidays (christmas & hannukah) and i love that these pieces could work for both….it’s one stop shopping for a blended family….so rare!

emily

i ma most looking forward to watching my 14 month old son enjoy christmas….he is already so excited about the tree & the lights. it will be a very special year!

emily

I am a working mom with 2 girls and a husband that travles and the girls are dying to put up the tree. I just need to clone myself so the decorating and crafts can get done. Maybe I will ask santa for that this year. I will keep my fingers crossed in hopes to win this great collection of holiday items!

Julie

My son is almost 3. I cannot wait to see him open his gifts.

Stephanie

As always, so hard to pick just one item!!
I think right now I would go for this fabric in red ( http://olivemanna.com/shop/248-fabric.html). Just awesome!

sfer

As for the answer to the question… what I’m most looking forward to is the week off work that I’ll be having and all the Christmasy things that I’ll be doing with my boyfriend!!

Oh, and eating “turron”, a typical type of candy (sort of), we have for Christmas in Spain. I can’t wait to eat loads of it, even if my belly aches the day after!!

sfer

I am most looking forward to being with family and also to seeing my little girl see what Santa brought her.

Mia J.

I love the Christmas gift tags, the phrases printed on them are really cute and clever. Plus they look great. Thanks so much for the chance to win, what a great selection of items!

annalene

This year I’m looking forward to getting some rest. I have a busy schedule right up until Christmas (I’ve only had about 12 hours of sleep in the past 3 days) so the time to relax is going to be savored 🙂

annalene

Love everything in her shop, but if a gun was put on my head I’ll answer jotter ten. But that’s a tough one to answer!!

ning fathia

I am looking forward to having a little time to start designing my wedding invitations, oh yeah and family too I guess.

justin

What an amazing giveaway! How did I miss this in NOVEMBER! After spending way too much time (but what a great distraction!!) on the Olive Manna site, I’ve decided that my favorite thing on the site is the Paisley card: http://olivemanna.com/shop/318-merry-christmas-blank-note-cards-lime-candy.html

A) I love paisley.
B) It’s on sale.

Second, baking. I look forward most to baking for my whole family. It’s my passion and I’m not too bad at it if I do say so myself.

Third: tweet, tweet! http://twitter.com/GwynethPaige/statuses/6468157583

Andrea, {Gwyneth Paige Couture Letterpress}

What a great shop! I love the gift tags – especially the manila “shaking me won’t tell you anything” ones! Great font, simple, and effective! Such a funny cute idea

kate

I’m most looking forward to my sister coming home for the season and us getting to spend every moment together! Who doesn’t love shopping and crafting with someone they love in their spare time?

kate

I love the Milk Glass Banana Bowl- super simple and chic, I could use it for so many things!
