I have been purging various spots in my house all summer long now. Keep, throw away, or donate has become the mantra running through my head lately, and I have fallen in love with that feeling of liberty that comes with an orderly space.
However, even in purging mode, possessions define who we are — and I’m not just talking about those with sentimental value. The Holstee Subscription — which I was graciously given some time back — has a mission to make us “a little more human in a digital age.” I can’t think of a way to be more yourself, than to be your most mindful self!
So far I have just received the first one — the Holstee Manifesto, written as a way to focus on defining success through your eyes, not through anyone else’s expectations or belief of what “happiness” is.
The Reclaim Stand that the card is resting in above is not included — but the piece, handcrafted from Douglas fir wood sourced from the Detroit Metro Area, is just $12 — and 20% with your subscription. The basic concept is punched up in The Reclaim Frame. I received a sample and it displays each month’s art (or anything you choose to slide in) so beautifully! This one is $44, and again 20% with a subscription.
Meanwhile, the letterpressed cards in the subscription are as thought-provoking as they are exquisite in and of themselves. The below design, Adventure: Get Up & Go!, reminds us that any experience can be eye-opening. All you need is a sense of openness and and an appreciation for each day’s journey, not the destination.Subscription boxes on the whole are driven by the excitement of receiving something — and Holstee’s has a final twist: The ability to pass this inspiration and mindfulness along to someone else. The enclosed origami-esque gifting envelope allows you to just that.
Sign up here for $12 a month, and each month you’ll receive not only the card, but lots of goodies in the digital toolkit to help you delve into the current theme that much more and turn inspiration into action. And did I mention that gift subscriptions are available? Given the state of the world today, I know there is someone you know that needs this!
