Last month, I signed up for a swap called Package Pals at C.R.A.F.T. You get paired up with another crafty person, get to know each other via email, and then send a crafty care package in the mail a month later! I got paired up with Meaghan, and now that she’s gotten the package I sent her I wanted to show off what I made!
I’ll be putting up separate posts with more details on each of the three projects I made, but here’s some brief info on each of the items I included:
- State love
pillowpillow cover (it’s double sided!) Meaghan and her husband used to live in California and now live in North Carolina – and are in love with both locations. The other side of the pillow has North Carolina with a heart where they currently live.
- Faith embroidery – they recently got approved for adoption (!) and Meaghan said this is a quote that’s meant a lot to them in waiting to find out what will happen with that process.
- A bowl in the shape of an ‘S’ – their last name starts with an S. I made this out of polymer clay, and I carved their last name into one of the sides of the bowl as well.
- 1/4 yard pieces of two cute animal fabrics – Meaghan loves fabric with cute prints and is working on I-Spy quilts for her nieces/nephews, and loves zoo animals – so I thought these would be fun prints for her.
- neon embroidery floss – she wants to try hand stitching and likes neon colors, so I thought these would be fun too.
Meaghan sent me a great frame with an adorable stenciled robot on it with some fun craft supplies I love (thanks!). I had a great time getting to know another crafty friend, and really enjoyed putting together a package of crafty goodies for her (and, of course, getting my own personalized crafty package in the mail!) If you’re interested in joining this swap next time, Jamie at C.R.A.F.T. is posting sign-ups for the next round towards the end of July, and you can find more information about the swap on her blog.
