a couple months ago i discovered a site called whimseybox. i requested an invite so that i could purchase one and see what it was all about.

from the whimseybox.com
We deliver a carefully curated selection of craft products directly to your doorstep every month for just $25. You'll discover new products and look at longtime favorites in a whole new way.
i paid $15 for mine and i'm not sure if they increased the monthly price or if it's still $15 now. anyways this is a company that hasn't been out for very long but is very interested in inspiring YOU to make things and share with your friends.

last month i finally received my invitation to purchase my first box. of course i was excitamated, not only cause i was going to get my first box but because this company is based in houston. :]

i received my box yesterday and rushed to check it out.


i love the contents of the box and how neatly everything was packaged in but my favorite of it all is the box itself. the velcro and the little metal plate in the back so that you can reuse the box is freaking awesome. some of the other monthly subscription boxes aren't really reusable so it was nice to see that you can reuse this one. 

can't wait to get started on this craft. as a pinterest member it's completely normal to pin things you want to do, read, eat, make, or see but how often do we actually get those done?! it's time to stop procrastinating (which is hard for me lol) and get some shit done. once i make this bracelet, i'll make sure to share. :]

to check out some other subscription boxes please visit xenia's post with a list of 'em. some of which i'm very interested in starting but can't due to funds. 

are you part of a monthly subscription box?! which one and how do you like it?!

..till next time ;]


  1. Sounds interesting! Do you think you'll keep paying for a new box each month? Or give a few a try and take a break?

    I'm now following you from the "Southern Bloggers" link-up! I hope you'll head over to my page and follow me back. Us southern bloggers gotta stick together ;-)

    1. hi there sarah :]
      had the price not jumped up $10 i might have stuck around a couple more months but my funds are low so i'll take a break for now. i tried the birchbox boxes for a couple months and enjoyed it but the box wasn't as cool as this one lol

      thanks for stopping by sarah! southern bloggers should stick together..even if some of us were born in cali lol again, thanks for stopping by! ;]

  2. It's cute but I couldn't pay $25 for it, maybeeeee $15. I finally gave up my Glossy Box subscription after 3 months. It sounded great but it was kinda sucky or maybe I'm just not into it. I really want to get a craft one or a food one but they are pricey! Thanks for linking me up!

    1. the $15 was pushing it for me. i like the $10 and under boxes haha i don't think i'll be buying another box for a while. i stuck around the birchbox ($10) for 6 mths and enjoyed it for what it was but i'm sure i could find better boxes to spend $10 on lol i haven't looked at the food ones but i imagine they're well worth it. don't thank me for the link up..you're like a permanent fixture on my blog girl LOL!!


Muchos thanks for stopping by! :)
