Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts. 

I just found out about a new subscription box called Celebrate American Made that launched in December 2013 with a Wyoming themed box. Boxes are $39.95/month and include local artisan foods and crafts from the featured state. The state that will be featured in January is Virginia, February will be Arizona, and March will be Colorado. The Wyoming box included bbq sauce and other spices for cooking and also some yarn to do a knitting project. It looked like a well thought out box and though I've never been to Wyoming, I think they got it right! I can't wait to see what's in the upcoming boxes. If you'd like to subscribe or check out their website, which includes lots of information and fun facts (even recipes) click here

I'm looking forward to seeing the January boxes for all the subscriptions I subscribe to. I can't wait to see if there are any changes for the new year with packaging or anything else! And I seriously need to make a list of everything I am getting, so I don't lose track. Plus add the ones I want to try next!

I was able to snag a Golden Tote January Mystery Tote. They sold out quick!!! For $50, it will include 4 surprise items, one Puella dress from a past season (Yay!!!!!!!), one item from a previous $149 tote, and two other items, with a total value up to $300. I'm so excited for this tote (I even had a dream about it) and though I received my tracking number and it has shipped it does not appear to be on the move yet.

I'm planning to do some giveaways and I have ideas for a few, but haven't had time to get anything together and take pictures. I promise I'll get to it soon, so check back!


  1. I am visiting through the linkup! Julep changed their box their box color. You are so lucky to have snagged a $50 tote! I wanted one so bad but when I tried to purchase, they had run out of my size! I will be watching next year!!

  2. i'm so excited that they shipped! seriously! i can't keep track of anything. usually i don't figure out if i miss a box (only has happened twice - mostly postal errors) until the next month.
