Wooden Photo Frame from Turkey (Retail Value $15).

Wooden frame production is Celebi Erturk’s family business, and they’ve been at it for over 100 years, ever since his great-grandfather migrated to Istanbul from the poor, eastern city of Bagistas. Surely his great-grandfather would be happy to know that after all this time, Celebi’s generation has recently opened a showroom and begun exporting to neighboring countries.

Although Celebi’s business does not offer any formal training programs, he and his family make a point of giving a helping hand to individuals who wish to learn the craft. Currently, 50 craftsmen work in Celebi’s atelier. Soon, his sons will open their own ateliers, carrying their family lineage both forward in time and outward into the community as a resource for those seeking to learn a trade.

Materials: fir tree wood
Fits 4×6-inch photo

Suggested use: Fill with a happy photo. Station at your desk or work area. Take momentary wanders.

And in case you missed the first spoiler:

Weekly Planner by Marie Mae Co. (Retail Value $18).

A stationery company, Marie Mae outsources design work as a way of supporting African artisan-entrepreneurs. Your planner was designed by Ewurama in Ghana. As a child, Ewurama made pictures from the terrazzo patterns in the floors of her home. Today, she is starting her own textile design company.

Meanwhile, in Rwanda, the Marie Mae Business school offers its students one hour of training per each product sold. One student, Xavera, dreams of becoming an independent businesswoman able to fund a complete education for her three children and see them, in turn, thrive professionally.

In the school, Xavera has developed the elusive and yet vital visionary qualities of the entrepreneur, such as the ability to identify hidden markets right under her nose. She and her coworkers soon plan to pitch local school leaders with the idea of their producing all local school uniforms for the next year. Pretty clever!

Made in the US. Designed in Ghana. Each planner provides an hour of Business School training for students in Rwanda.

  1. Turns out I was indeed simply too early when trying to find the diff theme options last night. Had no trouble doing so now & grabbed Cozy…I’m a sucker for nice mugs & scarves, & enjoy a quality hot cocoa so am quite excited (as I wasn’t subbed when Cozy was the month’s theme). This month’s items are ok – the frame is hard to gauge based on just the pic but I’m not generally a fan of spiral journals so that & not knowing the lay out makes me less eager than some of the former themes that I missed out on before subbing. I SO love the ability to choose a different theme or even skip; it’s definitely what caused me to pull the trigger on subbing.

  2. After 2 months of the benefit basket I just upgraded to lock in the old price. Am not seeing anywhere for theme options though? Is there a specific date when the option appears? I’m logged in & in “my subscription” tab, it’s not under preferences, & am not sure where else to go so am thinking I may be too early. Any info/ help would be much appreciated!

    • I was just able to change the box. I logged in yesterday, and it wasn’t an option then, but now the “Not Feeling It” tab was there.

  3. I like it. Not crazy for it, but I like it.

    I wonder if either of these will be in the Benefit box.

    • I saw a post on their FB page that said the boxes would be different moving forward. I’m eager to see what the benefit basket will be! I might need to get both 🙂

  4. Definitely a skip month. The frame is nice but not that interesting.

  5. As a planner person, planners are awesome whenever, yes, I want all the planners. But this one isn’t even available to be seen on their website and March is an odd time. I get that EC launches her planners in June, which I still am off about but okay. PSMH came out with that one in January which by that time I’d already been into my planner for a month. Maybe this will inspire non planner people to use a planner. Yay for the non planner people. Personally though I can’t buy a planner without seeing how the spread is.
    I don’t wonder if they’re launching the planner through the box as a way of putting feelers out without making too much commitment.

    • I’m very picky about how my planner is laid out! I can’t imagine buying one without seeing it. Too many control issues.

  6. How beautiful!
