Each month comes with a card with an illustration and explanation of the theme:
November is all about bringing to light “one of the most common colors in the world, GRAY!”
All bookmarks have designs on both sides, and magnets to help them hug the page of your book:
These gray colors remind me of the weather lately – that not-so-great time where the leaves are off the trees, but the snow hasn’t fallen yet. (These animals are super cute, though!)
Aside from Pepe le Pew, I don’t think skunks get a lot of cartoon/illustration, so I’m happy for this lil’ guy! (Also, I’m digging the mustache!)
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 $13.50. It cost me about $10.50 shipped, so I still came out ahead. (Plus these designs may be exclusive – I can’t find them in their etsy shop!)
