June 2019 – Parcel Contents

We’re quickly approaching the end of June, and although Summer is supposedly going to make a return later this week, it’s currently pouring down with rain out of my office window!

Fingers crossed, Summer will be back soon, and we can all venture back outside. The theme for our parcels this month was “Step Outside”, and they contained products all connected with encouraging the recipient to get outside, into the fresh air…and simply take a moment, to breathe.

June Contents:

Sunglasses Case –

Being outside in the fresh air is brilliant for our mental health and overall well-being, and fingers crossed, the British weather will be kind to us, and make it a little easier too! We all know that protecting ourselves while outside is important, so if we’re going to wear sunglasses – it’s also important that they have a stylish home!

We loved the quote on these cases too “Always Bee Yourself” – so true.

Rainbow Pin & Filigree Heart –

Pins and badges are a great way to add a little personality to clothing and bags. There are so many inspirational designs available, but this rainbow was a great fit for this month’s theme.

The filigree heart decoration is so pretty and delicate, and looks lovely hanging, well, anywhere…

Bee Pebble –

At TSP HQ, we are a big fan of bumble bees – after all, they practically keep us all alive! These cute pebbles look perfect as decorations, sitting on top of flower pots, or simply on the window sill. We discovered these on eBay, created by a lovely lady called Emma, who also makes a similar design with ladybirds, and paints lovely plant pots too. You can find her eBay shop here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/emsi2110

Clay Sunshine & Rainbow Drops –

This happy clay dough sunshine made us smile from ear to ear as soon as we first saw it, and we knew they were a must for this month’s parcels. It now just needs a lovely bright sunny window to hang in, to do it’s shimmering and twinkling in full!

Umm, tasty Rainbow Drops remind us so much of childhood, sitting on the grass in the playground, without a care in the world – I’ll take a bit of that!

 “Every Lovely Word…” –

We’ve got a slightly different postcard for you this month. “You are every lovely word I could possibly think of” – we may not have ever met in person, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t true. These cards have been made by Cara over at “Red Fox Design” – you can find their shop on Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/weareredfoxdesign

Smile Cards

As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to.

June 2018 – Parcel Contents

Good Morning!

It’s a beautiful day at TSP HQ today, and we are set (apparently!) for a scorching week!

Our June parcels arrived with customers in perfect timing for this lovely weather, as the theme this month was ‘Step Outside’.

The contents were all chosen to encourage the recipient to step outside into the fresh air, by making their outside space look pretty and inviting, however big or small it may be.

June Contents:

Heart Suncatcher –

The first item inside your parcel this month is a pretty heart suncatcher! As soon as we saw these, we thought they were beautiful, and a ‘must have’ for our first ‘summery’ themed parcels. They are handmade and look lovely hanging in a window where they can catch the sun as it shines through, making patterns of light – all we need now is sunshine, fingers crossed it will be back!

Tea Light Holder & Tea Light –

We are now heading into full blown barbeque weather, and there’s nothing quite like sitting outside in the evening and, if you’re lucky, watching the sun set after a long sunny day. This glass tea light holder makes a great patio table centrepiece to give a lovely glow of twinkling candle light. If tea lights aren’t your thing, it also makes a fabulous pen pot, or even a desktop jelly bean holder…why not?!

Bunting –

This beautiful fabric door bunting has been made especially for our parcels, by Joanne over at ‘Beadies By Jo’. Jo designs and creates lots of stunning fabric items, including children’s clothes, cushions, bags and home storage, and of course, bunting! You can find Jo’s products on her Facebook page or over on Etsy.

Metal Bird –

This month’s parcels are all about encouraging you to ‘Step Outside’, take a deep breath, and get some fresh air. Being outside has been proven to benefit our mental health and overall well-being. Vitamin D is good for us physically, and being around nature, and the sights and sounds of the outdoors is good for de-stressing and unwinding, including listening to birds tweeting, which can help us feel relaxed and focused.

 ‘Bee Yourself’ –

Sometimes we all need a little reminder that just being ourselves, is enough. Life isn’t a competition to be better than everyone else, it’s about being the best version of ourselves –  after all, there’s only one you, so no one else can do you, better than you…you’re in control!

Smile Cards

As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to*.

This month, your Parcel Assistant is Dave…you may notice he looks a little like a snowman (I noticed this too!) – I guess snowmen have to go somewhere in Summer!
