Each month comes with a card with an illustration and explanation of the theme:
January is all about letting “growing and glowing!”
What an adorable little baby deer! We have a deer family that hangs out by our office (1 mama and 2 kiddos), and this, of course, reminds me of the little ones!
All bookmarks have designs on both sides, and magnets to help them hug the page of your book. And speaking of magnets…
This month instead of a third bookmark, we get this adorable gnome magnet instead! One of my friends from high school is a bit obsessed with gnomes, so I’m going to save this for her!
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.
The only downside for me is that I was really hoping for some holiday/winter themed bookmarks this month!
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!)
