I just opened the most awesome package from Rebekah at Somewhere in the Middle! I was lucky enough to get partnered up with Rebekah for the March Package Pals swap at C.R.A.F.T., and I mean really SUPER lucky! Package Pals do a one-time swap of a box of goodies with each other – all handmade or with a craft theme – and my box was packed full of incredible stuff!
Rebekah had asked me if there was anything in particular that I was hoping to find in my box, and since her profile info said that she liked to sew, I told her that I was in need of a small zippered pouch to hold a few business cards for the upcoming SNAP! conference. She happily obliged and sent me this little beauty! She said that this was her first time making a zippered pouch and that it was a bit wonky, but I see none of the wonkiness at all – it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to show this off at the conference!
Look at that coordinating lining! I’m totally in love! But that’s just the beginning…
Rebekah also sent me some cute patterned papers, matte Mod Podge (my favorite! I literally JUST ran out a couple of days ago, so it was perfect timing!), Studio G ink, and a little yellow index card notebook that is SO stinkin’ cute (and my favorite colors!). You can bet that baby will be traveling in my purse with me everywhere I go!
Yes, yes, yes, please! Everyone knows that I’m a huge fan of banners (or buntings, flags, garlands…whatever you want to call them!). This sweet banner screams springtime and sunshine to me, and it’s already found its home up in my craft room window. I love that Rebekah used lace to tie it all together!
My soon-to-be-six-year-old ran away with this tote before I could even get a picture of it, and I had to wrestle it back out of his hands to take a photo! He has designated it as his new library book bag, and he’s loving that the striped part is made out of super soft and snuggly flannel. So cute!
This was seriously the very best swap package ever, and each thing I pulled out of the box made the smile on my face grow bigger and bigger. I love it all! Thank you so SO much, Rebekah! ♥
I completely forgot to take a picture of the goodies that I sent to her, but her box was full of stationery (I couldn’t resist buying a ton of cute girly stuff since she has two daughters!), washi tape, patterned party/goodie bags, a decorative wood frame (that I thought her daughters might want to decorate with the washi tape) and one of my wooden signs that I created just for her. It’s the ONLY thing I took a picture of! 🙂
I had so much fun putting my package together, and I couldn’t be happier with all of the lovely things that I received from Rebekah as well. If you’re interested in joining a Package Pals swap in the future, head on over to C.R.A.F.T. and follow Jamie’s posts so that you don’t miss the next sign ups!
