A Beautiful Mess Happy Mail | May 2015

Happy Mail is a monthly stationary subscription service that was launched back in November by sisters Elsie and Emma, the masterminds behind the blog and brand A Beautiful Mess. Each month Happy Mail subscribers receive $50+ dollars worth of stationary for only $15 a month! If you have commitment issues and want to subscribe for 6 months, or on a monthly basis you can do that too, but the price is adjusted accordingly. If you are located in the United States shipping is included in the cost, but they will ship Happy Mail worldwide for just an additional $2.00! 

I received my second Happy Mail package today, and just like last month - I couldn't wait to share it. This months package contained 7 cards, 1 post card, 7 standard envelopes, 2 prints, 1 sheet of Emoji Stickers, and 1 sheet of phrase stickers. Last month I had a minor heart attack when it got delivered because Canada Post had folded up the envelope and shoved it into the box instead of ringing my buzzer to pick it up - luckily nothing was damaged, but I left him a sticky note that said "Please do NOT bend anything to fit into the mailbox" - but he ignored my note and shoved it in again! This time one of my prints got extremely damaged, and a few of the cards and envelopes were crushed... I have contacted ABM to see if they can replace them, and have made a formal complaint to Canada Post. Anyways, besides my disappointment with Canada Post - I love everything about Happy Mail - everything is just SO cute!


2 of the 7 cards in this month's Happy Mail are flat cards - a white card with the words "You're Golden" in a copper foil, with a striped special envelope, and a large black card with a dance pattern on it that could be used for absolutely anything! The post card this month is light blue with fun, pink graphic writing on it that says "What's Up?" - I don't see myself sending too any post cards, but I will definately hold on to them for future travels! 

The 4 folded cards this month included 2 blank cards - a simple pink "Happy Birthday to You" card with copper foil, and a green card with eyes on it that says "Eye Love You," The other 3 folded cards include a twisted pretzel card that says "You're Twisted" on the front, "...but I still love you!" on the inside, a card with buttons and thread on the outside, and "You're as cute as a button" on the inside, and a card with green succulents and one orange and copper foil succulent on the outside with "You're my favourite!" on the inside. I think they are all super cute and are so unique! I love Elsie and Emma's designs - they get a big thumbs up from me!


The prints this month are great and so functional! I think they will look perfect on a desk together - the first print is entirely done in copper foil with writing that says "The Wifi Password" and a blank box for you to fill in the password. However you can see how damaged mine got in the whole Canada Post ignoring my sticky note debacle... :( The second print is blue ombre with the words "Get To Work" on it in copper foil. The sticker sheets include a sheet of 6 emojis (SO cute to seal off the cards with) and a fun sheet of pink phrase stickers - perfect to add into the cards! 



I am so happy with my Happy Mail subscription - the cards are super creative, are an excellent quality, and you just can't beat the price! It comes down to around $1.50/card + the stickers and prints are an extra bonus! These ABM cards definitely give you a run for your money, as you'll never find cards as cute as these at the dollar store. I can't wait to have a huge stationary stock pile, and be known for giving out the cutest cards! Thank you soo much Elsie and Emma for bringing thoughtful back!
