Spring Subscription Box Reveal

Spring has (finally) sprung. Maybe Mother Nature is not quite ready yet but I sure was while curating these items for this season's box. While placing my orders with my rockin' suppliers, I was imagining myself strolling around in my garden. The ladybugs are waking up, robins are laying their eggs, plants are sprouting from the ground and we will soon be eating radishes. The first crocuses (or is it croci?) will start blooming, and the flamingos are having cocktails (ok, the last one is pushing it)!

Received my subscription box this morning. The weather is absolutely wretched and I’m in the weeds with a massive work project that is lagging very far behind where I need it to be so, the bright colours, lovely cards, a fresh pencil...and...some chocolate (!) have brightened my day!

I’m really happy with how this selection turned out. The colours and espacially the different shades of green. The pièce de résistance this season is the Easter Stacker by Peace by Chocolate. If you have a few minutes, I suggest that you go to their website to read their story. So heartwarming! Other awesome items in this box are: “Thanks for helping me grow” by Badger and Burke, “Wishing you good luck” card by Bluberry Canvas, a robin’s eggs “Congratulations” card by Art of Melodious, a “Rad-ish” birthday card by Made in Brockton Village, “Cocktail Flamingos” by Amélie Legault Illustrations, and finally, a beautiful Spring notepad by Joojoo Paper.

If you are reading this wishing you had subscribed to this box, worry not! I have a few extra ones at the shoppe. Send me an email and we’ll make it happen! Most items are also available for individual purchase at the shoppe. While quantities last, of course.

Wishing you a very happy, warm and colourful spring!

Winter Subscription Box Reveal

January is probably my least favourite month. It's cold. It's the Christmas season aftermath and don't get me started on goals and resolutions!

YOU ARE LOVED

On the other hand, I like to see January as a fresh start, an opportunity to create a new habit. Which is why, in this season's box, I wanted to highlight the fact of writing more letters to one another (snail mail theme, if you haven’t figured it out from the photo!) Because, aside from Valentine's Day being just around the corner, I wanted to raise awareness on how winter months can be a real struggle for those of us coping with mental illness. By sending more letters (or cards) to one another, we are more present with one another. You are loved.

As soon as I opened my mailbox my neighbours heard me let out a big “woohoo”! Such a beautifully decorated box and full of goodies that will definitely push me to write more to my loved ones! There’s one card in particular that is on its way to Ireland!

I'm excited about this box as I was able to score some extra goodies thanks to my oh-so-generous suppliers. My coup de coeur (my crush) is the gummies from the charming company La Boîte à Bonbons. But who am I kidding… I’m crushing on EVERYTHING featured in this season’s selection; Gift-A-Green microgreens card, a snail belated birthday card by Art of Melodious, a “Je t’aime” French Cat card by Skipping Fox, Mailboxes birthday card by Made in Brockton Village, “Texting is so Last Year” card by my friend Anita at Rhubarb Paper Co. and lasty, a Canada stamp lapel pin and card by Boldfaced Goods. You can find out more about each maker here.

If you are reading this wishing you had subscribed to this box, worry not! I have a few extra ones at the shoppe. Send me an email and we’ll make it happen! Most items are also available for individual purchase at the shoppe. While quantities last, of course.

Now, let's take a little extra time this season to WRITE TO SOMEONE and let them know that they are LOVED.
