The Crafty Mail It’s My Party Handmade Subscription Box September 2016

The Crafty Mail is an Etsy shop that sells planner clips and glitter dipped tumblers.  They also put together a subscription box of items from themselves and other sellers, which is what I went with.  Boxes can be pre-ordered a few month in advance and you’ll know the theme before you buy.  Boxes are $38.47CAD a month or go down quite a bit if you buy more than one at a time.  Shipping is included in the price.  I used to get a similar box a while ago that had a different mix of items and liked it so decided to give this one a try.  The nice thing about boxes like this is that not all of the companies will ship to Canada so you’d never get to have their products any other way.  This month is It’s My Party.

What I like about these boxes it that you have absolutely no clue what might be in there.  With most boxes you know if they are makeup or stationery or clothes but these type could be any item under the sun.

Included is a sheet that tells you what items are in the box and what Etsy shop they can be found in.  That’s a great way to make it easy to find more or similar items if you like them.

Pom Pom Hair Ties by Crochet Cadeaux

These are not listed on the shop page so I don’t have a price for them.  I will probably let Bug wear this but it’s not out of the realm of possibility for it to be in my hair.  These would be so simple to make that I’m not sure why I haven’t made any myself.

Evening Dinner Party Tea by Kiper’s Lil Tea Shop-$2.00

This tea bag is a blend of black tea, chamomile, lavender, peppermint, spearmint, and lemon peel.  I don’t drink a bunch of black tea but with all the additions in this one I think it’ll be okay.  I have a cup of tea every night before bed so this will be used up quickly.

Skinny Tumbler by The Crafty Mail-$20.00

This is the item made by the shop that sends out this box.  They have a range of different things that they sell.  The bottle says “I like to party and by party I mean take naps”.  I don’t know that I’ve received a more appropriate item in a box ever.  I think this is great and I’m using it.

Planner Clip by Heart Of Joy Creations-$2.00

This is a Happy Birthday ribbon clip.  I’ll have to save it for next month, which is my birthday.  I’m using the one I received last month and it makes things so easy.

Planner Stickers by Crafty Beautee-$3.32

These are so cute!  I’ve been lucky that they fit in my planner since sometimes they are made for a specific brand.  How cute is the sleepover theme going on??  I love these.

Planner Clip and Journal Card by Cre8tiv Juice

This clip is more universally useful.  It is bright and colourful and makes a statement.  The journal card says ” A party without cake is just a meeting”.  I’ve been in a lot of meetings lately and believe me, cake would have made them easier.

This box is so much fun for me.  There are a few less items this month than last but the tumbler is much larger than anything last time was.  It all fits into the theme really well and while it’s heavy on the planner items, that’s okay and I like those.  The products had a value of $27.32, plus the items I can’t value. I enjoy these mixed boxes a lot and I think will keep this one around for a while.
