“I love making things that make people feel special. In a world where text messages or generic, overpriced cards are your only options, Mint & Maple is dedicated to making things that cut through the clutter and deliver a fresh, thoughtful touch. I put my heart into everything I make and hope that these designs and cards give people smiles!”

 

Natalie is a dream chaser and a believer in using her talents to spread the light of Jesus.  “My dream is that I will use the gifts God has given me to glorify Him. Today, I believe that looks like running Mint & Maple and leading and teaching young women about Jesus.”
 
“I think for most of my 24 (almost 25) years of life, my fear of failure has made many decisions for me. It plagued me. I wouldn’t play tennis with my friends because “I never played tennis in high school and tennis just isn’t my ‘thing,’ so what’s the point of playing if you’re not good?” That was my mindset. It was exhausting. After graduating college, I took a hard look at the things that held me back from the abundant life that Jesus promises. If it’s a PROMISE from God that he gives life to the full, then why did I only have glimpses of it? It wasn’t until I truly gave those fears to the Lord (and through many tears and talks with my husband, Josh, and friends) did I realize that freedom is available TODAY.”
“So for me, Mint & Maple isn’t just about building and owning my own business, it’s about using my gifts of creativity and leadership and take a step of faith in doing something I love. I don’t want to let my fear of failure make any more decisions for me.”
Natalie took that leap of faith in starting her own creative company, and Jesus has blessed that leap of faith immensely.  Today, Mint & Maple is a thriving new business, and Natalie gets to wake up each day with another opportunity to do what she loves.
