Package Pals Linky Party {March 2014}

Welcome to my favorite part of Package Pals! It’s link up time for the 100 March 2014 PPs! If your new around here, package pals happens twice a year. Basically, a PP is s a pen pal who sends you crafty snail mail. Pretty awesome, huh?  And then at the end of the month, everyone shows off their crafty goodies with a link up on C.R.F.T. It is my very favorite part of PP! I have to give a major thank you shout out to Julia over at Stars and Sunshine. She was the match maker and did all of the PP correspondence this time around. Thank you a bazillion, Julia! You rocked it. Again!Julia and I are super excited to see what was sent and received in the month of March! A few things to remember:

  • You do not have to have a blog to be a part of package pals.
  • PP is open to everyone everywhere in the world! Please note, if you are outside of the US, you will possibly have to ship a package outside of your country. *I will do my best to pair people in their country of origin, but I can not guarantee it.
  • If you have more questions, check the FAQ and then if you’re still not sure…email me at craftaway at gmail dot com.

Here are some C.R.A.F.T. ideas that are easy and inexpensive to ship:

You could even send your package pal crafting supplies for a certain project (maybe DIY felt wall art) or general fun crafty things like bakers twinelace tape, Elmer’s painters, or how about my favorite crafty book, Young House Love!


Here’s a spunky button to add to your side bar if you decide to participate in the March PP!



*Please include your city, state, and zip in the what is your shipping address question on the form.

*By filling out this form, you are committing to putting together a crafty package and going to the post office to send it to your package pal within the month of March. In return, you will get a surprise crafty package delivered to your door step too!



While I’ve got you filling out forms, I have a gianormous favor to ask of you! Would you pretty please hop on over to Apartment Therapy and click the little “+1″ button next to “C.R.A.F.T.”.
