My cat peed in my subscription box and it's not a joke

Sunday, August 28, 2016

The title seems like a funny catch line just to reel you in but the truth is ... Its not a joke. See by the evidence below.. (Color hidden in black and white to mask it's beauty)

Not long after I completed my last blog post regarding the unboxing of the beautiful August kit, I sat it down on my office desk with the lid open just as it appears. I haven't been feeling well since recently diagnosed with migraines but I knew it would be safe on my office desk. My children know not to touch my office items that I'm working on. 

Fast forward five days later to today. I am getting over a current sinus infection but I felt like looking through the kit again so I can start making dividers for my Filofax. I picked up the beautiful charm and it was nasty with a terrible smell. Took me only five seconds to realize what it was....

My cat peed in my Planner Society box!!! 

My Cleo.. my furry friend.. the love of my life. My best cat I have ever owed had peed in my box. I do have a boy cat Tom but I think it was Cleo. The other night I saw her on my desk sniffing the box but thought nothing of it. She has never peed some where she shouldn't, I mean shes a cat. Cats are trained to go in the litter box from the earliest stages of life. Worse of all with me not feeling well it sat like that in the box for two or three days. (Insert the biggest sad face ever here) :( 

Three things happened to be saved and it was only because they weren't in the box. The brown burlap bag the cute charm came in. The pen and one of the paper clips. I had them in my purse already. 

I posted what happen in the main #plannersociety Facebook group and many lovely ladies had several suggestions of what I can try to do to save a few of the the items. I have everything in a sack sitting out (so no cat will touch it again) but I really think I'm going to trash it. Its not worth it trying to clean them. If you have ever smelled cat pee before then you know how hard it is to get out. 

I wanted to post this for all others out there. Watch all your good craft items not only from your children but your pet's as well. You never know when someone might come up and pee on them!  I have to laugh though dont you. Learned my lesson from this gal right here.

She's a rescue and I could never be mad at that face :) 

Until next time, 

Scarlet Lime Planner Society Kit Unboxing August 2016

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Hi, I'm back! I know I've been away for far to long but I'm happy to say I'm back with lots of new ideas. Starting this month I will be kicking off a new monthly subscription box I started subscribing to.

Scarlet Lime Planner Society Kit is a monthly subscription box. It is designed to work with all types and styles of planners. The kits aren't month specific or themed which means you can use them anytime you want which I absolutely love. Christy Thompson is the main designer be hide Scarlet Lime.

Each month the kits will include 6 sheets of cute scrapbook paper which are double-sided so you can make dividers using each design if you so wish. Other items vary but they can include cute paper clips, stamps, note pads, page flags, pens, embellishments, etc. What I love most is that all items are 100% exclusive by Christy and her design time. They aren't items you can find any where else.

There are four different subscription offered:
  • The Planner Society Kit Club $24.95 plus shipping
  • The Sticker Society $16.50 plus shipping
  • The Box Sticker Society $17.50 plus shipping
  • The Washi Tape Society $13.95 plus shipping 
  • SHIPPING: U.S. $5.95, Canada & Mexico $8.95, all other International $12.95
If you are a current planner society member you can add different kits on for a discounted price. Please see her website for more detailed information.

The theme for the month of August was a "Nautical theme" Anchors, star fish, sea horses, beautiful floral's in blue, pinks and reds including my favorite the navy and white strip make this months box magical.

Included in the kit:
  • 6 double sided scrapbook papers
  • 1 sheet of puffy stickers
  • 2 sheets of custom designed nautical stickers
  • 1 set of wooden stamps with 6 designs
  • 1 roll of washi tape in a beautiful dark and light blue floral design
  • 1 small bag in a navy and white strip with a cute anchor on the outside. 
  • 1 planner charm - black and white bow with an anchor charm and hook that reads "hope" on the outside.
  • 3 paper clips in beautiful gold with 3 coordinating bows in the matching colors of the month.
  • 12 blank divider tabs with name tabs which can be used on the tabs or anywhere else you can think of. 
  • 1 0.5 black gel pen in coordinating colors.
  • 1 sticky note with a floral background and a mermaid tail stamped on the front.
  • 1 set of page flags with 5 designs: Remember, To Do, Take Note, Urgent, Important 
  • The last item is a set of wooden note cards. It was posted not long ago from Christy herself that this item was suppose to not be in the kit this month. Because of the change of humidity in the air they curled up and cant go back into place without breaking so they wasn't suppose to go in the packages, but that's okay because I still love them! Her husband was able to soak them in water and lay them flat between books and successfully got them to lay flat so who knows I just might try that. 
All of these beautiful items for $30.90! I know for some that can be a high price to take out of the budget each month. Honestly at this point I shouldn't be paying for it myself either but the quality of work and the details that go into Christys planner society boxes are amazing. If I had to pick one box or one big ticket item to purchase for myself and for my inner #planneraddict it would 100% be Scarlet Lime Planner Society Box. 

Until next time,
