This review is for the Delight Box.

Delta Girl Frames Honeycomb Frame – Retail Value $90
The picture for this frame measures 4 by 6 inches, and the entire frame measures 11 by 13 inches.
(This size was made exclusively for Umba Box subscribers, so the value is from Umba Box. Based on the shop frame prices, it seems accurate.)
Each Delta Girl Frames picture frame is handmade and handpainted, with distressing, so no frame is exactly alike. This is definitely a solid and well-made piece.
Verdict: This is my first time reviewing Umba Box in years, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m impressed with the quality of the frame, and I like Umba’s mission of introducing you to new makers each month. I think this is a bit of a tricky box in terms of risk, though, since you could get anywhere from 1-3 items. If it’s only 1 item, and it doesn’t work for you, it’s a pretty big hit.
This box cost $56 ($49+$7 shipping). I’m still asking myself if the frame is worth $56 to me. (It’s a quality piece, and I can definitely see the craftsmanship that went into it, I just can’t remember a time when I ever spent more than $20 on a frame.)
