About

Creative expression is part of all of us! So is having an organizational system.  

Keeping yourself (and family and work) organized takes creativity, but running to the store to find different colors/styles of stickers, washi tape, clips, stamps, stamp pads, etc is frustrating, time-consuming and expensive. This is particularly true when you are looking for a specific design (sticker, shopping list, etc.) and you have to buy a whole pack just to get one things you want - or you just can't find it.  

A Little Happy in a Box provides a seasonally-appropriate monthly Box and Online Library with the pieces, components, and tools for you to use the whimsical art and selections of Laura Kelly in your everyday life. Each month, you'll expand your craft cabinet with a variety of colorful, functional supplies.

The current market offers a huge variety of planners that vary in sizes, shapes and bindings. The selection of one can be overwhelming. With our Starter Kit, A Little Happy in a Box offers a basic calendar style planner that is perfect for beginners or those like Laura who prefer to keep it simple and effective. Our planner is the standard 8 1/2 X 11 measurement that will fit in a standard binder.

Whatever the size of a planner you have, you can use the products and tools from our seasonally-appropriate monthly Box and Online Library.

This custom doodle is not like any other. Laura will doodle your family as 'Me and My Peeps' characters then water color it and have it framed. Nothing beats an original work of art!

Being a part of the Founders Club is quite the honor. By supporting A Little Happy in a Box at this level, YOUR custom doodle of YOU as a 'Me and My Peeps' character will be a part of the Founders Club Doodle that will be shared on the website. If you want your 'Peep' to link to your website, we can do that! You will also get a framed print of the original water colored doodle.

As a certified teacher and a professional DIY workshop leader, Laura would LOVE to visit you and your group to either teach a workshop or speak. The possibilities of topics and projects to choose from is endless so this would be custom designed just for you AND your group. Whether Laura visits and teaches a workshop sharing creativity or speaks on finding inspiration, there is a fit that is perfect for you.

A Little Happy in a Box plans to support a non-profit based out of Denver, Colorado that serves women around the globe to access their gifts while becoming independent and confident. Laura will work directly with this agency as well as others that support women and girls in owning their power and being their very best selves. 

With a background in education as well as a lifetime active member of Girl Scouts of America, Laura knows how important this social cause is. Laura has volunteered around the country with many organizations that support women and is totally inspired by this piece of the company plan.

Help get the word out and get one free month (or an additional month) subscription to the Online Studio when the Kickstarter ends - for you to explore, download, and print creative elements for your organizational system and your dreams.  

To participate:  

  • Share this Kickstarter on any social media with the #alittlehappyinabox hashtag and
  • Shoot us an email at social@alittlehappyinabox.com with a screenshot or a link of where you shared it
  • When the Kickstarter completes, we'll confirm the number of free subscription months you will receive to the Online Studio

Limit 6 additional Online Studio subscriptions months per person.

We'll be using your contribution for one purpose: to scale the manufacturing and warehouse from our home to a super-awesome office park. You make this happen by providing funding AND being a customer!  

To provide you with the highest value in your box, we can drive down product costs by:  

* manufacturing certain products in-house  

* building our customer base so that we can use quantity discounts to put MORE products in your Happy Box  

* having a scale-able warehouse for easy pick, pack and shipping!

This makes a great Christmas gift!  

But in order for us to have your Inaugural Box (Box #1) to you in time, we'll order / manufacture the box contents before the Kickstarter completes.  While we will do our best to forecast the total number of subscriptions, we may not be able to get everybody their Box before Christmas.

If this happens, we'll see who can wait until after Christmas and then send out the completed Boxes based on when you participated in the KickStarter.  We'll keep you posted!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge will be scaling our purchasing and manufacturing to our customer base. While we hope to provide Boxes to over 30,000, this Kickstarter will set our pace!

With over 40 years of production and shipping experience, we are confident that we can manage the risk.
