Hello friends! I received a beautiful package in the mail today from Oona Julia, containing all sorts of nature themed goodies. I came across her Instagram account (@oonajuliar) a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with her photos, and with the creations that she sells in her store.  I purchased the Sweet Lullaby package, the Mystery Finland package, the Woodland package, and the Art tags. She sells much more than this; if you are interested in checking out her store, click HERE.  Let’s take a look at what was inside my bundles. 🙂 Continue reading
