Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside February’s “Love Bug” themed box. 
How festive!
Everything that we received in the February The Crafty Mail Subscription Box.
It’s almost like a gift basket. It’s so beautiful and everything works perfectly together!
It’s also absolutely chock full! There are tons of items in here!

So what is all this stuff?

Studio SL2 who is a frequent contributor to The Crafty Mail always has the most interesting and fun contributions to the box. This month we received a mini solo cup that says, “Sweetie”
We’re swooning!
These are adorable! Definitely a “sweet” addition to any Valentine themed box! 
Last month, Sally Daisy Ink also contributed some New Years Planner Stickers as well! 
We find that donut particularly tempting…
This is our second time receiving one of these gorgeous clips from Renewable Blooms. 
These found fabric flowers are great decorative pieces and also amazing gifts. Check out her Etsy for the full selection of wreaths and other found flower objects!
We received this gorgeous pastel pink and silver polka dotted flower. If you look closely there is also a really cute detail on the center of the flower, they’ve wrapped it in pink strands! Great addition to this box!
L’aura Botanicals has some of the most complex and amazing scents that we’ve ever smelled. Once again we were not disappointed with this month’s offering. The name of the bath melt is “Love, Love, Love” and it has a blend of Sandalwood, Patchouli and Lavender essential oils and some hints of Black Pepper infused into Cocoa Butter and sprinkled with Himalayan Pink Salt. Sound alluring? Yes, we agree
It smells divine and we absolutely can not wait to use it! Love the little heart shape as well
$1.50
Love this name (as we said in the unboxing)! The vanilla is really nice but we were most excited to see that they used coconut oil.
We find that more often than not lip balms that include coconut oil tend to have a more moisturizing and nourishing formula. We really like this one!
We wanted to peek around this shop but alas she was away on vacation. Note to self to do that in the future! This pendant is super cute and we believe is forged in ceramic. The two tone is cool as well as the patterns that was used. We’ll be pairing this with a black cord for a casual everyday necklace.
A new The Crafty Mail contributor we love this little Valentines paper clip! A very cute way to mark your page or hold some important papers together. 
We also really love that the clip is red! Very cute!
Firstly, we love this packaging! It’s so delicate and beautiful. We could smell it before we even opened it up. Kiper Creations used to contribute jewelry to The Crafty Mail but more recently has been delving into tea (which we find ridiculously exciting) We almost thought this was rose tea because of the scent (that’s our fave… forever!)
It’s actually a rose bath soak. There are real bits of roses in there. It also comes with instructions and a muslin bag to put the soak in. Excited to use this
Super adorable “Love Bug” Bookmark! Seriously!? How cute is this! 
Check her shop out around the 20th when she is back from vacation to see all her cute offerings
How can you not want to read when you have this smiling little bug waiting for you!
There was also a subscriber only coupon included for this vendor
We received Gingerbread this month. It smells exactly like gingerbread. If you look around their site they have so many different scents you could window shop on there for hours! We haven’t used last months country lemonade yet, because we are waiting for some spring time temperatures!
We love and cherish all the items that we’ve received from The Papery Craftery. Not only are their gift tags adorable and perfect but they are super detailed! The skill and patience that something like paper quilling demands is so admirable! We just love the two little “love bugs” that we received this month!
Best packaging goes to The Crafty Mail this month. Don’t think you can beat a doile topped with a love bug paper clip!
Very cute! We’re swooning all over the place for the stitching in the felt! 
And the best was yet to come! Inside the package was this very cool burlap banner! Love the simple but fun design – a perfect way to add some festive color to your mantle! Love this addition to the box!
This cake topper from Topper & Twine was a perfect way to end an excellent Valentine Themed box. We will be holding on to this until next year – and may even surprise someone with a beautiful Valentine Cake! 
Love the glitter on this – it’s absolutely gorgeous!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Crafty Mail is an excellent handmade subscription box that we look forward to each month. Presentation and theme is always carefully chosen and beautifully executed. We couldn’t be happier with the way the items arrive each month. The quality is excellent as well and we feel it’s evolving each month and getting better and better. Curation is also extraordinary. We love the way the themes pull all of the items together and we enjoy seeing what different vendors bring to the box each month. We really feel like The Crafty Mail is a strong thriving community of small businesses working together and we think that, that’s what we like the most! Can’t ever say enough good things about this box!
As far as box economy The Crafty Mail costs $24.95 monthly. While we couldn’t find prices on most of the items included we think that this price is more than justified! In fact we’d say it’s a steal!
