True North Subscription Box Spring 2022 Reveal
Well, I truly do apologize that this update is looooong over due. You see at the time that the Spring boxes shipped we were also planning an 'across Canada' relocation!
We moved from the most southernly tip of Canada - we could see Buffalo from our house - to the middle of Alberta. Coordinating the move with the movers (my husband did most of that), packing a home with WAY.TOO.MUCH.STUFF. in it and then buying a house sight unseen - yes we are 'those' people - well you can imagine - my brain was fried!
I also work as a Virtual Assistant for small business owners and so making sure I was staying on track there was a mind of a mind game also.
Anyway, here we are now settled into our new home but that's for another blog post which is coming soon!
Onto the Spring Box!
I loved this box! I shared some of my childhood in this box and took a walk down memory lane. The feature item was a FLOWER PRESS that was made by the lovely Kristen @fureverfarmhouse. I will miss here as she would often make custom items for our boxes. She is incredibly easy to work with and always want to produce the best items for you all. I don't believe she has a website yet but you can find here on IG.
Our bath bombs were lovingly created by Sun Shine Bath Co based out of her home in Fort Erie, Ontario. You can follow her on FB as she produces some of the best videos of her many variations of bath bombs - so fun!
A beautiful notebook was included into the mix that displayed original artwork from Lili Graffiti based out of Quebec. She creates beautiful cards, notepads for every occasion.
Carrying along with the floral theme we introduced a cute re-useable market bag - perfect for carrying snacks when out looking for wild flowers for you flower press (wink). These bags are perfect for fruit and vegetable purchases. No more plastic bags! Yay! The came in a variety of floral/spring designs. themarketbags.ca are based out of Kelowna BC and they are doing an amazing job by providing an alternative to plastic packaging!
I was thrilled to be able to work alongside another small business owner. This lady is growing her wonderful business. She works hard from her basement while taking care of her husband and kiddos and her extended family. She has a heart of gold and I would love for you to support her family as they navigate some unexpected twists and turns. You can find Nadia at fireywickscandleco.ca The addition of her Twigs of Spruce Candle was the icing on the cake.
In each of our boxes we are attempting to support Parks Canada. We source Canadian made products to purchase from them as a way to give back to the beautiful parks all across Canada. We loved these sticker sheets that showcased many places from across Canada. We hope you enjoyed them or found somebody to gift them too.
Thank you again for your interest and support of all things Canadian made. We are thankful for your support as we continue to try to support small Canadian businesses.
The deadline to order a Summer True North Subscription box isJUNE 11th with the boxes shipping out that last week in June!
Have a lovely and safe summer friend!
