Welcome to the olive+elliot journal – vol.001
Borrowing a quote from Bill Gates, we’re excited to launch the o+e journal!
First, a thank you, to each of you for having subscribed over the past year, likely having found us on a sometimes quirky account in the Instagram ether.
We hope you’ll follow along with our weekly adventures, but at any time it feels overwhelming please feel free to unsubscribe.
We want you to feel comfortable with us and we are always open to suggestions and constructive feedback.
So with that let’s get into it!
It’s very much a work in progress but better something than nothing.
So feel free to check it out any time and send us a message with your thoughts at email@example.com
It will be growing and improving over the coming weeks so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

This weekend there will be a bit of selfish sewing just to get back into the swing of things, which we will post as always on Instagram.
We’re also working on a few surprises, so stay tuned for more updates about what’s on our sewing table.
