Monthly Subscription of Paper Goods

I am happy to report that I’m still loving my monthly subscription to the Olive Box, which comes chock–full of stationery and paper goods.

Here are goodies from the May box, which had a breakfast theme, and included a bagel notecard from Fish and Cake Design, a pancake notepad from Pen and Deli, and coffee magnets from Badge Bomb. I adore those coffee magnets, which look great on the magnetic white board in my home office.

Here are the goodies from my April box, which had a “sweet as honey” theme, and included a beehive notecard from Rifle Paper Co., a beehive decomposition book/notebook from Michael Roger, a set of beehive notecards from Wit and Whistle, a bee balm tin from Worker B, and a coupon for a free art print from Bonnie Christine. Such a great theme, especially with the increased awareness of the fragility of the bee population these days.

I just received notice that my June box is on the way, so I’m excited to see what theme of stationery and paper goodies they put together for this next box.

Do any of you subscribe to a monthly subscription that delivers stationery or beauty supplies or fabrics to your door step? I’d love to hear about it.

Snail Mail Treasures

Receiving any snail mail is a good thing. I’ve added some great treasures to my collection lately.

I received another letter from my Paris Letters subscription, which talked about the flowers starting to bloom in spring in Paris. I always feel like I’m right there seeing, hearing and smelling the sights alongside Janice as she writes and illustrates her letters.

I also have this beautiful collection of watercolor postcards from my friend Cindy, with whom I started exchanging postcards this year. She realized how difficult it is to find postcards these days, so she prints her own using photos and the Waterlogue appWatercolor postcards from Cindy

For my monthly subscription of paper goods from OliveBox, I received this box of treasures in March, which included Samantha Hahn‘s new book of watercolor illustrations of women characters in fiction, one of her prints and a lovely watercolor notecard from Monica Lee. (Click here to see what I got for January and December, and here to see the February box.)

I was especially thrilled to receive anything done by THE Samantha Hahn, a famous illustrator and designer, whom we studied in design school. Each portrait is painted so beautifully, and the quote is hand written to match the mood of the character and her scene.

So wonderful to receive a variety of fabulous art in the snail mail to add to my growing collection. Happy letter writing!


Monthly Paper Goods Subscription – February

You may recall that I’m trying out a subscription to a monthly box of paper goods from OliveBox. Click here to see what I got for January and December.

For February, I received this box of goodies, which included a message in a bottle, a mechanical pencil that looks like a giant wooden pencil, an envelope of vintage stamps, and a letterpressed letterquette.

February SubscriptionThe message in the bottle actually has a message. It says “You Are Loved.” How sweet and comforting is that. And the letterquette is an actual glue-bound pad of letterpressed notecards with bright green edge painting and a glue-bound pad of envelopes. Such a clever set!February subscription goodies

Each month keeps getting better and better!
