I love subscription boxes. Getting the shipping notification and anxiously tracking the little package full of untold treasure is just the best. And then actually getting to open it and discover all of the hand picked little surprises? Yes. That is DEFINITELY something that makes my day. In a recent post I discussed the merits of appreciating even the smallest things that remind me to be happy and grounded and grateful. This little box of goodness is a perfect example.
I have been playing around with several subscriptions lately. My fascination started with birchbox, little $10 treasure chests filled with beauty and lifestyle samples. You can expect to get lovely little perfumes, snacks, nail polishes, and all sorts of other goodies. But that's not what I'm here to discuss. As an artist, I absolutely love that I can have new and exciting art supply samples delivered every month. I currently have two subscriptions, Pigment and Palette, and Artsnacks.
I haven't really been able to settle on a favorite so, for now, I am keeping them both.
This month, I had a super fun mix in my artsnacks treasure box.
And of course, no art snacks box would be complete without the snack.
My favorite this month? Probably the Zig Mangaka cartoonist flexible marker. It's just so... COOL. Incredibly smooth and fun to sketch with.
