A Beautiful Mess - Happy Mail

A Beautiful Mess is probably one of the first blogs I started reading back in the day, and definitely one of those that insired me to start my own. They're wildly successful now: the blog is an institution and the brand has grown to include classes and paper products.

Being a sucker for cards and stationery, one of their products that got me most excited is the subscription service they call "Happy Mail".

ABM Happy Mail costs $20 ($15 if you opt for the annual subscription), and you get $50 worth (retail value) of stationery, cards, notepads, stickers, prints, craft goodies etc. They're obviously based in the US, but if you're in Europe like me (or just not in the States for that matter), you'll be delighted to know that they ship worldwide AND for only an additional $2!

I had the chance to try a couple of their past edition, and was really impressed by the amount and variety of goodies you get in each box. Most of the content is based on the monthly theme, but you always get something more neutral in the mix.

Besides notecards and postcards, ecah box also contains stickers - perfect to add accents to your letters, of embellish your planner - and a little special treat. For example, one box had the cutest mail-themed iron-on patch, and another had a cool clear stamp.

Something I really appreciate is that all the cards are beautifully illustrated (so if you're like me and want to keep one or two for yourself, they make very nice wall art!) and are exclusive to Happy Mail - you can’t find them anywhere else!

Also, each card comes with a colorful envelope rather than a boring white one, which is always a plus.


Have you tried ABM Happy Mail or any other paper subscription box? I'd love to know your thoughts on them! ☺️
