Package Pals Round Up (October 2012)

For those of you who don’t know, Package Pals (PP) is a pen pal-ish crafty exchange that happens 4 times a year here on C.R.A.F.T. ! (February, April, July, October) The goal was to offer a crafty exchange as often as possible (becuase I think they’re so fun!) This is the 4th and final one of the year! PP happened back in October, but better late then never, right? So, the next PP sign ups will be at the end of January for February 2013. See lots more info here.


And now for the way overdue October 2012  PP Round Up…! Click the button below if you want to see all of the October PP linked up.

My very favorite part of package pals is the linky party and then showing off the greatness in the round up! Here are some of the awesome crafty packages sent and received in October 2012.

1. A bubbly life made Naturally contrary cute art for her daughters nursery after she found out the family loved Star Wars! (I love that elephant basket too!)

Thank you to all 100 PP’s for putting together thoughtful, sweet packages for your PP’s! I love reading the inspiration behind the package. Remember to look for the next Package Pal sign up post at the end of January 2013 for the exchange to happen in the month of February. Ocotber PP’s had some great handmade holiday gift inspiration! Do you make handmade gifts for the holidays? I’d love to hear…
