When we bought our house, the sellers left us this awesome basketball hoop for Jonathan. Isn't that so awesome of them! As you can tell, he is loving it.

One of my very favorite things about selling my work is the packaging!  I'm a firm believer that if you buy something handmade, you should feel like you are getting a gift.  This philosophy influences how I work with people, the details I put into my designs, and my packaging.  Below are a couple of instagram shots of my packaging....when will I pull out my DSLR again???

My items are always wrapped in kraft paper or put into a kraft bag.  I have these Paper Source vellum oval label stickers with my shop name that go on top of the bag.  I often wrap some baker's twine or put washi on the bag as well.  I was keeping it simple here.

I think it's fun when you get mail and the outer packaging looks special.  I try to use fun fonts for the addresses but now that I usually print labels from home, this doesn't happen as much.  There is always washi though!

All this packaging talk is motivating me to wrap the rest of the Christmas gifts....

Have a great one!
