Package Pals Sign Ups: March 2014 {closed}

Package Pals (PP) is back in 2014! (Confused? Read all about PP here.) All thanks to Julia from Stars and Sunshine. She is going to be the official PP match maker here at C.R.A.F.T.  If you’re like me, a package at your doorstep makes an OK day instantly an awesome day! Now, consider getting a package in the mail with a C.R.A.F.T. inside! Sound like something you might be into… read on, my friend!

Here’s the Package Pals (PP) timeline:

  • Sign up using the form below, by midnight on Friday, Feb. 21st. The first 100 people will be included in the March Package Pals (PP)!

  • Send your PP a crafty package by March 31st, 2014!
  • We will have a linky party set up on April 1st for everyone to share their package pal goodies!

Tweet something like this: I just signed up for @thecraftblog #packagepals. Crafty snail mail is my favorite thing :) You should sign up too!–>

  • 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.”. You might have to create an account, but it takes like 5 seconds. Thank you a bajillion in advance! Oh and you can vote for multiple blogs :) There are lots of awesome ones on the list!

    Ok, I signed up for the PP, and I signed up with Apt. Therapy, but it’s been 20 mins and I haven’t gotten the confirmation e-mail from them yet. So I’ll have to wait for that before I can vote.

  2. Shelly Cardwell says:

    I signed up, but haven’t received confirmation. I am so excited to be a part of this.
    ps….. I also voted +1

  3. I just signed up and totally spaced putting in my whole address, email or message me if needed!! (I believe my mom forgot too! ) Heading over to Apt Therapy to vote now!! Tweeted and pinned and posted as well!! Can’t wait for PackagePals again!!

  4. I’m still thinking about, if I want to join, but since the package-to-be-mine the last time never arrived I think, I will skip this one and see again next time… although I still really love the idea of Package Pals!!

    Love, Midsommarflicka

      I’m sorry your package never arrived! It does occasionally happen, but I’d say 95% of the time we have wonderful Package Pals!
