Everything came in retail plastic bags but we remove them for photography purposes.

Everything in my August 2018 box!

Cosas Minimas Blanca Gomez Enamel Pin Badge (about $7.70) It’s an enamel pin badge featuring a little plant in an orange pot.

There are gold colored accents on this enamel pin, which give structure to its overall look. It’ll look great on a tote bag!

Design By Riah Blue Floral Pouch ($15) This handmade pouch features blue floral prints. It’s simple yet adorable. The zipper top completes the look.

The inside of the pouch has a polka dot lining. It also comes with extra pockets on the inside.

Whether you look at the pouch from the front or the back, you’ll see that the floral prints are evenly distributed. I like how seamless the pattern looks like.

Tombow Mono Drawing Pen ($8.67) I also got this set of drawing pens from Tombow Mono. They’re smudge-free because the ink dries superfast!

It uses a water-based pigment ink, which is smooth and skip-free.

Their tips come in different sizes, letting you have various drawing, doodling, and writing options.

The felt tip pens are noticeable in their differences. However, these are not refillable.

Here’s a sample doodle so you can see the differences in thickness of the pens.

Memory Planner Postcards ($2.99) It makes me happy having a stock of cute postcards in handy. This set contains a total of 36 cards.

There are three designs here with each design having 12 pieces. There is simply no excuse for you to not drop someone a line from time to time.

One postcard has a cactus-themed design which is quite appealing, thanks to its white background. The back of the postcard is in green with several lines to write your personal message. It’s neat and it’s a sweet way to say hi to someone.

Another design is this single cactus plant. I love how the succulent is the center of attention in this design. It’s simple yet cute.

These barrel cacti look amazing especially with the way they were drawn on the postcards. Although they remind you of the desert, your words can make someone’s day a bit brighter knowing that you remembered them.

TF Publishing Memo Magnet Pad ($5.89) This memo magnet pad is a welcome addition to my fridge, as it is the best place to put up reminders, plans, deadlines, and other important matters that need to be remembered.

You can write the week on top of the list. Meanwhile, the days of the week are already printed for you.

This is a smart idea and because it is a magnet pad, you can just stick it wherever you like. This is my very favorite kind of notepad!!

I love stationery, so getting Busy Bee every month keeps me happy. This month, the box included a nice collection of pens, memo pads, postcards, and even a handmade pouch. My favorite has got to be the Tombow pens because they are smudge-proof and quick drying. The different sizes of tips also allow various drawing and writing techniques, so it’s really a win. More than just a monthly supply of stationery, what makes this subscription worth it is that they inspire creativity in every package!
