Send Something Good

During April/May I had the pleasure of being part of the Send Something Good Project - A Very lovely Project created by 3 sweet ladies Gentri Lee, Kaitlyn && Kristy (All of whom have Amazing blogs you should check out!) - But back to the project, So the Idea was you are given a secret "Blog Partner" to Stalk & find out what makes them tick - Then Send them a super cute package all wrapped up before the deadline - Then... TaaDaaa... Blog about it! So Here goes..


My Swap Partner was the Lovely Jasmine From TinkerFinca (Click the banner to Visit her wonderful blog!) I began by Stalking her blog & even sent a letter off to her to get a few more ideas.. Two Iced Coffees && An hour later I'd come up with a pretty good list of inspiration..



I Didn't take as many pictures as I would have like to of the package I sent - Lucky for me Jasmine has put up some Beautiful pictures on her "Send Something Good" post over at TinkerFinca So go have a gander there too! Here is what I came up with though..


This Letter book was full of sweet notes - Questions - Fortunes - Quotes - Stickers - Lists - Confetti & Other things that I thought would make Jas Smile :) I made it out of an old ABC Golden book & Filled it with Bright Beautiful Pockets && Envelopes - Then Stuffed them full of papery goodness!


I chose alot of Coral & Yellow as those are Jasmines favourite colours :) Inside the Packages are - The Letter Book - A time Capsule - A Notebook, Pen & Coral Washi Tape - A Stamp Pad - A Cupcake notebook && A Vintage Globe.


My Favourite part! (Along with the letter book!) I Love Packaging - And anyone who knows me will tell you I Adore Airmail - So I got out my Favourite Airmail Supplies & Tied up the Prettiest Package I've ever sent! I mean who doesn't love a "Brown Paper Package Tied up with String :)"


Unfortunately Due to (what I hope is!) Postal Difficulties my package has not arrived yet - Hopefully I'll be able to post about it when it does :) Keep sending letters! <3 Rin
