Package Pals – June

I keep signing up for trades and saying yes to offers to guest post and to co-host events.  Some days I feel like I’m spreading myself too thin, but the payoff is way too good to say know.  I love guest posting and co-hosting.  I get to know other bloggers so much better.

My new addiction is definitely trades.  After the Covert Robin, I’ve been on the look out for other mystery swaps.  Then I came across Package Pals over at C.R.A.F.T.  Yes!  While this exchange wasn’t so secret, it was still a chance to get a box full of unknown goodies in the mail.  I LOVE getting stuff in the mail, especially boxes.  

A Turtle's Life for Me

To my great delight, when Jamie emailed out the swap pairings I got Natalie from A Turtle’s Life for Me.  No way.  No Freakin’ WAY!  I adore Natalie.  I giggled a little when I saw her name.  Natalie did the same, she assured me.  🙂  Now I had to decide what to send her.  Natalie told me she liked a beachy feel, funky colors, bright happy stuff.  Easy enough.  You can see what I sent Natalie by stopping by A Turtle’s Life for Me.  

The first awesome thing about Natalie’s package to me – she used the same box I sent, topped it off with the same yellow tissue paper like I did and wrapped the whole thing in a brown paper shopping bag.  I couldn’t help but smile.  



Then I took out the tissue paper and started digging everything out.  Goodies galore!
A breakdown.
I already know what I’m making with half this stuff.  Inspiration hit me as I was laying everything out for this picture.  I can’t wait to get crafty and show you.  The necklace and earrings are really gorgeous.  I’ll get pictures with them on later.  You can’t really tell how great they are here.
I can’t thank Natalie enough for my wonderful present!!
If your interested in joining Package Pals, Jamie will be holding a sing up at the end of July for the August round.  Only the first 100 are taken, so sign up early!  Learn all about Package Pals.

Thanks for the fun Jamie!  I can’t wait until August.
