So last month about this time I happened across a couple blogs all talking about a Cara Box. A whaty what? I thought it was one of those subscription box services and just shrugged and checked it out. Oh no, it wasn’t one of those subscription box services..it was better!! Each month there is a different theme posted by Kaitlyn at Wifessionals and you are assigned someone to send a box to and someone else is assigned to send you a box! So so fun!! If you want to sign up for July just go here.. but keep in mind, the deadline is tomorrow, Wednesday, to sign up because of the holiday.
So, the theme for the June Cara Box was “Take Me To The Fair.” Fun, right? All colorful and yummy… I was assigned Brooks at Cotton & Boots. Let me tell you, she is so cute. All young and getting ready for her wedding in a couple months.. 🙂 I had a great time shopping for her and chatting via email. You will have to check out her blog to see what I ended up sending her. 🙂
The person sending to me was Sarah at Chronicles of Sarita The Next Chapter. She was awesome.. She put up with me being paranoid because I have not had the best luck with these sort of things. The last one I signed up to do was a bunch of used products and just other things we won’t go into.. :ahem: She had a crazy couple of weeks so we didn’t get to chat much, but she got all she needed from a few emails and reading my blog. Not sure how she did it, but I love everything she sent.. 🙂 Look at what was waiting for me in my mailbox! So fun! I feel bad for not decorating Brooks box now! Ah well, lol.
And here is all that was inside!!
I will break it down..because there is so much goodness in that there little box… Not sure how she knew that I always look at these Smash Books in the store forEVER…debating on getting one or not. I look and I look, I pick up a bunch of things…and then I set them all down again..lol. So yay, now I have one!! I can’t wait to use it!! 🙂
She knew that I had kids and those twisty balloons were called for the second Lauren saw them…lol. I think she was a tad excited. 😀 The first aid kit will definitely come in handy.. See this post for her inspiration, lol.
She knew I was a photographer…and oh my goodness. This batch of stuff is so so fun!! A bunch of photo props for a themed shoot. The glasses and the mustache will be used oh so many times, I can see it now. The popcorn containers..YES! Cupcake wrappers and flags…YES! And those striped straws? Are you kidding me? Getting down my blue mason jars as we speak to put some lemonade in one just so I can use a straw…
I had such a good experience with this June Cara Box that I signed up again for the month of July! The July theme is Nautical.. You can have fun with that one!! If you want to sign up make sure you do it before 2pm tomorrow, the 26th. 🙂
