Happy Mail January 2016

Happy Mail is a monthly card subscription box that was launched by blog A Beautiful Mess. The cost is $20 a month plus $2 for international shipping. The cost goes down the longer the commitment. I signed up for a one year commitment so it is costing me $15 a month plus shipping. I’ve been a fan of A Beautiful Mess for quite some time now. They cover a variety of topics from cooking, DIY, fashion, photography, blogging etc. They have also come out with Messy Box which consists of paper, stickers, washi tape, and many other items that you need to make great albums and scrapbooks.

Final Thoughts

This was the final Happy Mail of my 12 month subscription and I’m sad to see it go. I would keep it if I wasn’t overloaded with cards, and the Canadian dollar was better. I loved the cards this month and thought they covered a nice variety of occasions. My favorite is probably the pickle card because I love puns, and the black and white envelope. I also love the cassette stickers, those are definitely going to find their way into my day planner!
