Hello, my loves. For the past few weeks, I've been hinting at some "big news" that I was excited/nervous to share with you all. And yes, I've been enormously vague. But until today, I wasn't ready to go into detail. I've been a bit silly & superstitious with it all, but it's finally ready. But first, a little back story:
As a child, I was always excited for back to school time, if only because of the beautiful pens and pencils, the smell of new books, and the crisp feel of notebook paper. Even now, I often find myself wandering into paper stores and office stores just to grab a new pen or a new journal. (And my friends can attest that they've had to drag me out by my hair more than once, heh.)
But I’m not alone. I’ve discovered quite a few people who are just as excited about paper goods as I am, and possibly even more so. Other people who get giddy over paper bits & pretty pens. So with that in mind, I’ve decided to launch a monthly subscription box all about paper goods in order to share our obsession and our passion. Because honestly, what could be better than “back to school” coming once a month?
"It's Paper, Dear." ---What?
This is an idea that my mother and I came up with not too long ago. (It was honestly close to 65/35, on her part. Thanks, Mom!) And I'm so excited to finally get it going. And as for the name: I'm sure many can relate, but I am often asked "What is that?//Why do you need that?" And every time I've explained this to those wonderful people who support me, but don't quite understand, they just smile and nod their heads, thinking I'm nuts, I'm sure. And I wanted to play on that. So to anyone who receives a box and is asked something along the same lines, they can answer in kind: "It's Paper, Dear."
And while most of the box will change month to month, there will be some repeating monthly features: a pretty journal for you to doodle, write, and/or collage in. A lovely pen or pencil for you to play in your new journal with, and pretty tapes and office goodies.
But let's not forget the paper...
Everything from note cards to recipe cards, to book marks to book plates. From templates to create the loveliest envelopes on the planet, to DIY paper projects. From stickers and stamps to labels and collage sheets. From scrapbooking and smashbooking supplies to stationary to write darling letters. And it keeps going.
(Are you getting excited yet?)
Which brings us to how you can get your hands on one of these little boxes of paper goodies. Currently, there are two subscription options: 1 month & 3 months and following the posting of this, I'll be uploading both options to the etsy shop for immediate purchase. And with the first box being shipped the second week of July (8th-14th), and limited supplies, you'll want to grab yours quickly!
And because I'm so excited to finally be starting this, the first five people to buy either package, will get an extra hand-made gift added into their box. :]
