Pretty Packages

When I'm packing items up to ship them, sometimes I just feel creative and want to add a little extra sparkle to the package. Sometimes I'm late in shipping things and I feel bad, so I make the packaging extra-special so my customer won't think I don't care about them! In this case it was both:

The pendant is held tight to the card with some thread strung between the stones and tied in the back. All recycled materials, of course. I used paint swatches for the mountains and sky and mini cairn, textured cardstock for the hills and path. Translucent vellum for the snow. These are the times I'm so glad I have a scrap bin. 

This little pendant is going out tomorrow. Hopefully Kathy in Atlanta, GA will enjoy it. :)

I would enjoy received a package like that!
I love shopping on Etsy for that exact reason, I love the personal touches that each seller puts on. I've only had one purchase that came with nothing and no nice wrapping.

I did a massive studio clean up today and found a destroyed picture book I had forgotten I had acquired, I've got plans for it now!
