snail mail | send something good final reveal

the time has finally come for the big reveal of the send something good packages! leading this project with gentri and kristy has been so much fun for me. i loved the challenge of creating a seamless list of participants and matching them up with people in different states or different parts of the world. send something good has really become like my baby throughout the past two months. thank-you to everyone who supported my stationery shoppe by purchasing send something good products (by the way, i'm currently having 25% off sale and there are some ssg items left over!) and truly - thank-you to everyone who participated in this project. it was such a pleasure to meet so many amazing and passionate young women.

below are images of the package i sent to katie of lemon jitters. katie lives in colorado and we have a lot in common. so not only was it fun to pick out goodies for her, it was easy too! i sent stickers, collage/scrap papers, a notebook, make your own watercolour cards, my stationery, fold and mailers and a handmade mint green basket! you're wonderful katie and you deserved all of it and more!





i received an awesome parcel from mariaana (let the time roll by) in norway. i was nervous because although it was beautifully wrapped, it had gotten a little roughed up on its journey! but amazingly - everything inside was in perfect condition!! and by everything i mean...there was a lot of stuff in there! she included chocolates, european delights, a photograph, postcards, stickers, note cards, a unique candle, picture frame, bracelet, keychain and more! i loved the little notes she included and the mix cd she sent me was wonderful :) thanks mariaana!

  1. Hi kaitlyn!
    I'm glad to hear everything arrived in one piece, I was a bit worried about the picture frame :) Did you get a chance to read the book?

  11. Such wonderful items! I think both of you sent things that the other person would love, but also kind of represents yourself too (the grammar of that sentence is probably butchered.) And it turned out great! So very cool that you received a little piece of Norway too. I especially love the picture she sent you. Everything looks wonderful (the packaging too of course)! ; ]

    Thanks so much for helping put this together!
