Each month comes with a note from the owner/designer, Heidi Heth. This month she explains what inspired her for the month’s theme, “Celebration”, and says that this month’s cards are all blank.

Each month you’ll receive a few stamps. I just love the design of this stamp.

I love this card.  It reminds me of the Disney Movie, “Up.” My mother in law’s birthday is at the end of the month.  I think this would be a great card for us to send her way. I don’t know what it is that I love about the texture of these cards, but they give the colors such a soft velvety effect.

This card has already been sent off. Our friend from church invited our family to his pastoral ordination.  We almost didn’t go because our kids are very little and it was a very small and intimate setting. But as it turns out, he wanted our kids to be the “new generation” witnesses for the event. If you’re ever invited to an ordination, no matter the religion, go! It was very humbling.

This card is so pretty. To me, I see many purposes for this card for “Celebration.” Celebrate the birth of a girl, our pair it with a birthday bouquet, and as odd as it may sound, I would make a beautiful “Home Going” card as well.

So cute! Our little Abigail loves Owls. Her room hasn’t been overly decorated yet but she has two owl pillows and stuffed lovie already. I’m going to hold on to it for her.

This has “Party” written all over it! Well, not really, LOL. But you know what I mean. That’s what I’m going to use it for. We are invited to a dinner party next month and I’ll send this to the host to thank her.

Verdict:  I’m absolutely in love with card subscriptions. I always had pen pals growing up and I really miss that. There’s something about sending a letter that’s really special and lets the receiver really know, “I care”, “I miss you”, “I took my time for you” that an email just can not equate to.

What did you think of this month’s Haven Paperie subscription? When was the last time you wrote a real letter?

  1. I miss having pen pals, too. I had tons when I was a kid. Anyone want to be pen pals now? Ooooh subby pen pals – send a sample of your choice and a letter?

  2. This is too cute! But really just wanted to tell you I love your reviews. Keep up the good work Cecilia!

  3. These are really cute! I love Nicely Noted but am going to start watching this one, and may consider switching.

    • I just looked and it seems that Nicely Noted sends only three cards but costs more. Did I miss something?

      • Nicely Noted cards are letterpress printed, a process where each color is applied separately, on an antique press. They are designed and printed by three small independent printers from across the country. From what I understand these are designed in house by the owner and I am not sure about the printing technique.

        Our aim is to support American makers and provide a variety of card designs and unique stamps to inspire you to send handwritten notes.

        I’m happy to answer any other questions about our service!

  4. Really nice cards. Makes me want to subscribe but I am currently on card overloading after subscribing to Nicely Noted (cancelled), CardNest (do not imagine ever cancelling) and Hello Lucky (cancelled only because they pre-stamped the envelopes – argh Why?!?).

    • Hi Loba, I’ve never even heard of CardNest, what makes it different from (better than) the others?

      • CardNest us from the UK so maybe there is a different aesthetic that just jives with me? For instance, for my wedding I took pictures of bouquet inspiration from a British wedding magazine and it was really different from the styles in US weddings. Or maybe it’s all in my mind. I have just really liked their cards. If you go to their website you can see previous cards that were sent out. Currently the subscription cost around $16 (after converting dollars to pounds and my bank charges a conversion fee).

        • Can’t you use a ‘no foreign transaction fee’ credit card?

          • Yeah, but it’s 38 cents so I haven’t been motivated to do so. :-).

    • Is CardNest a US box? I looked at their website and it seems like it’s British.

      • Yeah, it’s British. I love the design of their cards! I should be getting my next order any day now and I am excited! For what it’s worth; I really like design of the Hello Lucky cards. I just wish they didn’t pre-stamp their envelopes.
