Package Pals: Sent & Received

Last month I stumbled upon the awesome opportunity to participate in Package Pals, hosted by Jamie at C.R.A.F.T. and Julia over at Stars and Sunshine.

Let me tell you, it led to the craftiest month of the year!  You can find out more about Package Pals HERE but  the gist is, after signing up, you are paired up with a Pal.  You exchange a few “getting to know you” emails then get to work on a fun goodie box.

This is my Pal, Kelly, the No Drama Mama,

and I couldn’t have been matched with a better lady!  After our fun Q&As and scouring her Pinterest boards, this is what I came up with. (She made my package look so much more awesome on her post HERE)

I got the needles out and whipped up a bunny for her Little Man and a mint coffee cozy.

I finally broke into my stamp making kit in an attempt to make a stamp of her logo and whipped up a magazine clutch based on this tutorial.

First of all, I love a box within a box so when I opened the box full of popcorn only to dig around for a second box, I already had a huge smile on my face.  The first thing I noticed when I got the second box open was the hand lettering on the envelope… I think this needs a frame.  Then the goodies just kept coming!  A huge stack of letter stickers and chipboard that I can’t wait to get in to, a sweet polka dot notebook, a super cute coffee mug stuffed full of goodies I’m already planning on using in Project Life, two skeins of my favorite washcloth yarn (!!!!), magnets that have already brightened up my fridge, a scarf for my first attempt at fabric stamping and TWO M&M punches… these cover both my initials!  M and W!  [insert happy dance!]
