Happy Friday! Creative Collaboration, A Makeover and New Product Launch

Happy Friday All!

It has already been an exciting year, and holy moly it is FEBRUARY!!! WOW!

Hope everyone is having an amazing 2016 thus far. I know we are truckin’ right along over here at The Olive Shoe. If you noticed different names at the end of some posts, it’s because there are several people writing for The Olive Shoe these days as the blog continues to turn into it’s own little mini-magazine on a crusade for creativity in every day life!


LaurenCop and Mae Mae have been publishing some awesome articles full of creative inspiration, and we’re working on an editorial calendar to keep them coming all year long!

Additionally, my dear friend Dorothy Camak and I have been up to some FABULOUS creative collaboration. After being introduced by mutual friends last year, we instantly clicked and have enjoyed regular #inreallife lunches and planning sessions both to socialize and bounce ideas off of each others’ creative brains. We recently recorded a podcast together for her soon-to-launch podcast series, so KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN y’all. Convos2Connect is coming soon, and I am pumped to be a part of her exciting new adventure. She is also gracing the web-pages of The Olive Shoe monthly this year with her fabulousness like this post on Creative Ways to Cultivate Your Prayer Life.

Through our conversations that cultivate creativity, we have collaborated to create some exciting new products to inspire you, promote her mission, beautify your walls, and cradle your coffee and tea…available both in my Etsy shop and hers as well: ShopDottie. Mugs and prints will soon be available at my booth in Remnant’s as well!

Through growth, collaboration, and reflection, I am constantly planning ahead and looking back at this point in this little adventure called The Olive Shoe. As the brand grows (and so does my experience and knowledge), there are always areas for improvement. That being said, I’ve decided to update the logo – something that has been on my mind for a bit now, so I hope you’ll all bear with me as I get everything changed over! It’s definitely a process.

However, I am so excited to unveil the new logo…AND a brief history and evolution of The Olive Shoe:


If if you weren’t already aware, the ACTUAL olive shoe is a serving dish that my Grandma Mense gave me some years ago…you can read more about it HERE.

In addition to the new mugs created in collaboration with my friend Dorothy, I’m now offering another new mug as well for all you creativity crusaders out there. It can be purchased on Etsy as well, and ships within about a week of purchase:

Happy Friday, and enjoy your weekend!!! So much more is in store for 2016!!! It’s going to be an exciting year!!
