CRAFT Package Pals- Reveal!

Do y'all follow the blog C.R.A.F.T?  She is great!  Her site is all about Creating Really Awesome Free Things...fun, huh?  Well a couple times a year she does a package pals exchange.  It's like a pen pal but with craft supplies, super fun, huh?!  So I signed up and got in!  They only take the first 100 people.  Truthfully, I was on Facebook at the right time, which might be all the time, ha.  So I got in and got paired up with my new friend, PJ, over at Planned in Pencil.  She is awesome!  We have become email and blog buddies over the last month and it's been so much fun.

I will admit after looking at PJ's site I was instantly intimidated!  She is an actual craft blogger, and not a try-to-be like me!  She sews and creates, and is really good!  Check out her apron!

So I racked my brain and racked some more, then told myself to stop stressing over the package and have fun.  And have fun I did!  I loved putting her box together and trying to find the right things to fill it.

I am sure PJ had a hard time figuring out what to give me since I hardly craft!  Poor girl!  But she did an AMAZING job with my package!  Oh.my.word!  Amazing!  I am so excited :)

Here is what I got...

Do y'all see that fabric?  
It was wrapped so pretty then 2 curious little girls unwrapped it!

Some and yarn and hooks...I am determined to learn something with this!
  
 Do y'all see that felt, it's already cut and together for me to make little flowers!
PJ made the red flower sitting on top, and she sent me alligator clips to
put my new flowers on...so pretty!!

And hello...she made me a PURSE!!





That PJ is so crafty and thoughtful!  I love it all!  Getting mail is fun, but getting paired up with an awesome package pal makes for a truly fantastic mail day!  Thanks PJ!
