Everything in my May 2017 Happy Mail box!

Oh Yes, She Did Art Print: Every month comes with a fun art print! You can hang this one in your office to let them know exactly what to expect!

Skinny Orange Washi Tape

Cactus Sticky Notes

There are always some fun stationery goodies in the box. This month we got skinny washi tape (perfect for decorating an envelope) and totally on trend sticky notes with some pretty cacti!

4×6 Black Alpha Stickers: This alpha sticker set has 2 of almost everything, so I’ll be able to put someone’s name really large on two or three cards (depends on how creative I am!).

4×6 Pink Heart Stickers: This simple washed out pink heart set is perfect for us – we <3 everyone we send a card to!

TV Card

A fill in the blank card that describes your affection for your favorite binge watching companion. Notably, there’s no space to tell them what you’ve been Netflix cheating on them with.

Celebrate Good Times Card: Perfect for a birthday, announcement, good job, I love multi-use cards like this one! It has a fun somewhat retro vibe, too.

Dandelion “Best Wishes” Card

This card seems a little sad to me, but maybe it’s hopeful? Note that for this subscription you’re going to need extra postage for those square cards and a label maker or white gel pen for dark envelopes like this one.

“Thinking Of You” Card

Maybe these cards aren’t sad, but a little subdued. I like that they’re unobtrusive when your message is what you’re writing.

Flowers Card: This mid century modern card has a great spray of floral fun, and it’s adaptable to anything as it’s blank on the inside.

“Thank You” Card: A super simple flat thank you card, also in a fun mod-ish retro color scheme.

“Congrats To You Two” Card: Congratulations for a couple – marriage, anniversary, house buying, moving, baby, new pet? Whatever you need, this one covers it.

“Great Job Dad! I Turned Out Awesome!” Card: I love this self-congratulatory Father’s Day Card! The perfect way to tell him thanks for making me, me!

“Happy Birthday” Card: This blank-inside birthday card has a great contrast between the melon envelope and the watercolor wash card. I love the gold foil happy birthday – this is for a big one!

“Houseplants” Card: This is basically my perfect garden, a pile of cups and bowls and mugs filled with plants.

It’s a housewarming card! I think it will be perfect to gift with a plant in a mug!

Last month I said that this subscription always has a couple cards that are just a little weird, and I don’t know that this month is any different. There are definitely a lot of cards with the basics and the seasonal must-haves, and there’s a new style every month that keeps it fun!
