It’s here, it’s here! I was so excited to find this box on my doorstep today as I’ve been waiting for it since I got my June UmbaBox! If you don’t know what UmbaBox is it’s a subscription service that sends you a different Handmade Surprise every month for $25+Shipping. If you’re an Etsy lover like I am and love handmade jewellery and other such items you will love this service! I’m so happy I subscribed and it’s such a great surprise that I have yet to be disappointed with, you’ll see why!
So, being my impatient self I couldn’t keep this a secret and googled other’s boxes before I got mine… Terrible. BUT, luckily it made me even more excited to get my box! If you saw my post for last months box you might remember that I received a gorgeous gold circle necklace and two handmade lollipops. This month I received an amazing leather double wrap bracelet by Ashley from Pink Ruffle and stunning handmade letterpress cards from Patricia at Fourteen-Forty.
I have a thing for handmade or one-of-a-kind jewellery. I also have a thing for leather bracelets so this was a slam dunk LOVE for me! The leather is sort of a orange-tan (classic tan leather colour) and it is finished with brass “hardware” washers – literally, from the hardware store washers! I think it’s so pretty and great for summer to pair with colourful dresses or tops and to layer with my gold watch. These bracelets sell for $14.50 on her easy store everyday.
Okay, I also have a thing for gorgeous stationary and cards. And keys. Another slam dunk. These cards are actually hand pressed on an antique printing press by Patricia herself in New York. There is 6 in the box and they come with matching envelopes for each card. I think these would make amazing little invitations or thank you cards, the only thing I wish is that there were more of them! This set of 6 cards sells for $18.00 everyday on their website. I honestly think if I have any big occasions coming up where I need fancy cards to invite people (wishful thinking) I would order from her! All her cards are beautiful, definitely check them out!
Again, I’m thrilled and will definitely be staying a loyal UmbaBox subscriber! I really think this is such an amazing idea and is so much better than Beauty Sample Boxes. In these boxes you actually get usable and beautiful items! Let me know if you’ve checked out UmbaBox or if you’re a subscriber!
