I haven’t posted anything on snail mail in a long time, but I’ve gotten some really cool stuff lately. Yesterday I received the new France kit from Rad and Hungry!
I love the packaging. I miss the boxes they used to come in, but they make the envelopes look awesome. The packaging on the inside is great, too, and I love unwrapping everything. I thought I’d take tons of pictures so you can enjoy the experience with me…
Stickers!!!! I must find a way to reuse them.
The outer package. Love the gold RAH sticker.
Undo the first fold, and what’s inside…
the invoice. This is a little bit of a spoiler for me since I don’t check ahead to see what will be in the kit (these packages are a Christmas gift, so the all the emails about the kits go to my dad. I have ignored all my RAH emails and refrained from looking at the website so I’ll be surprised!), but you still don’t know what everything will look like. So, no harm, really. And I’m very fond of that orange paper. Next:
A handwritten letter, each kit comes with one! What a special touch :)
The letter was written on the back of this print, on heavy card stock.
On this fancy sheet, we learn about RAH,
and the trip to France.
And more about France.
Now moving on to the inner package. I don’t know why, but I really love the string it’s tied with and I always save it. I think it reminds me of a makeshift prayer rope I have, it’s the same kind of string.
This was on the back.
Ooooh, wonder what it says…
Huh. I still wonder what it says. I will have to look it up! Now let’s open the little package…
Oh my gosh…getting excited…
YES!!! Look at this cool little notepad!!!! What else is in there?!
Oooh, a bigger notepad!
I love the pastel colors, and the way the lines are spaced. What shall I use it for? But wait. I feel something else in the package.
Pencils. Three pencils!
The pink one is so pretty,
and the triangle pencil is fun to hold :)
So that’s an RAH kit. If you have a little splurge money and love office supplies, I recommend ordering a kit or a whole set of them. You can buy a package deal and have a kit delivered every month! For the longest time I just saved everything and never used it because each item is so cool and I didn’t want to ruin the notebooks and things with my messy handwriting, or use up a pencil or run out of ink, but finally this year I decided I shouldn’t let them go to waste. So either I’m going to use the stuff (I have started using one notebook and one pen out of everything I’ve received over the years), or I’m going to start an office supply museum.
