Check out all of our Crafted Van Ready Happy Plan reviews!


Each month comes with a card with an illustration and explanation of the theme:


March is “Sweet Dreams” month!


Snoozing Pillow Bookmark


This little pillow is sleeping on top of a tooth!


Sleeping Cat Bookmark


All bookmarks have a separately designed front and back.


And the bookmarks have magnets on either side to hug the page of your book.


Sleepy Penguin Bookmarks


These two are my favorite in the bunch – so cute!

Verdict: This subscription falls into the delightful category for me. It might not be a good fit for everyone, but I’m always happy to see these cute bookmarks in any of my book subscriptions, so a subscription full of them is just extra awesome.

Crafted Van bookmarks retail for around $4.50, so the value of this subscription is around $18. It cost me about $10.50 shipped, so I see the value there, too. (Plus these designs may be exclusive – I can’t find them in their etsy shop!)

What do you think of Crafted Van?

  1. Very very cute, I can definitely see the potential! I just cant imagine anyone needing THAT many book marks? If it was only one bookmark a month with add on items like fridge magnets/stationary/prints/pushpins/paperclips and the themes were a little more relevant (not even to a fandom but just to a season/holiday/ext) I would definitely consider. Right now for me, I just do not need that many bookmarks, but that pillow with the tooth is soooooooo cute. Love!
