June Package Pals

Stephanie was my Package Pal this time around…this was each our third time to participate.  Here’s what Stephanie sent me!

Stephanie definitely browsed my Pinterest pages…she found my love of peacocks, owls and the color blue.  I love the peacock clock or "peaclock".  It goes in my craft room as there is no clock up there right now!

A book on button crafts, which I had on my wish list…and homemade vanilla that smells good enough to drink!  A sewing kit jar with supplies and buttons and pins, lavender sachet and a tissue box cover in my fave colors-blues of course!

Thanks so much Stephanie! Here is what I sent to Stephanie…two dish/washcloths, some washi tape, a tote bag, knitting needles and some yarn (Stephanie wants to learn how to knit!), a pin cushion, some hand made envelopes, electronics/eye glass case, a few bookmarks and some hair pins.  I love to put these things together!

And a big thanks to Jamie for organizing the whole Package Pals exchange! If you haven’t ever done a gift exchange like this…you should give it a try!  Great way to meet new people and fun to trade crafty gifts and supplies!

What a wonderful idea! I'm going to definitely look into some groups like this. I'm really looking for more people to share my interests with. Thanks for sharing... Oh, and that "pea-clock) is to die for!

Thank you so much, Ellen, for all the fantastic goodies. My husband is eager for me to try and recreate the envelopes for his classroom, and I've gotten lots of compliments on my tote bag at work. Thanks for being such a great Package Pal!! Happy fourth!

The peacocks(peaclock) is amazing! I love that she combined the pin cushion and sewing supplies together!

The envelopes are awesome, and I love me some washi tape!
