Paper makes me happy. They say its about simple things and, to me, there's nothing like the simple pleasure of opening up a new notebook (those fresh clean pages!) or getting out a greeting card to jot down a message for someone.
So when I was told about The Happy Paper Club, a new monthly subscription from the lovely folk at The Green Gables, I jumped at the chance.
So, what's the club? Its a monthly subscription service where you get sent a box filled with lovely stationery and papery goodness, the fun bit is that its a surprise so you don't actually know the contents until it pops through the door. When I placed my order for the March box I was so excited and could hardly wait to tear it open when it arrived last weekend.
I loved it so much that I thought I'd share the contents with you here, along with one or two ideas for using some of the items.
|It was a test of sheer restraint not to tear this open as soon as I opened it!|
|A box of treats!|
|A beautifully illustrated A5 notebook. Perfect for my garden and allotment plans and ponderings.|
|An exclusive to the Happy Paper Club. I love these Make Me notes, they're a lovely idea for sharing crafty ideas with friends.|
|I spy a few (actually six) little postcards that will be heading out with my 'Pay It Forward' parcels.|
|Introducing delights from another independent business called Clara and Macy. This came with an envelope and would be the perfect treat to pop in the post for a little friend I know.|
|A little note pad to jot down some Easter ideas.|
If you're interested in trying out a Happy Paper Club box yourself you can find out more from The Green Gables website here. Subscriptions will be available again from the 1st April, I know I'll be heading there as soon as I can when they open!
Before I go, I don't know about you but I've got loads of ideas for Easter crafts at the moment and am planning to try a couple from my list above over the weekend. I thought it'd be fun to show you what we get up to, so check back next week when I'll be sharing some photos and a 'Make Me' card so you can try out the craft too.
If you've got any suggestions on what you'd like us to try, leave a comment below and Wilf and I will happily give them a go!
I hope you have a great weekend and thanks so much for reading today.
