Packing, Wrapping, Posting

Packing: getting an order ready to send with a candy stripe paper bag, pretty tape from Summersville (which I also use to seal all my parcels), a colourful business card and a hand-written thankyou note.

Wrapping: sorting a delivery of mini embroidery hoops into bubble-wrapped sets of six before storing them (pre-packing them makes posting days run much more smoothly).

Posting: no posting day can happen without the contents of this basket! It contains (almost) all the kit I need for sorting out orders and packing parcels.

It's so lovely to see how you organize everything. It looks like a very enjoyable thing to do.

I am trying very hard to be organised this year... it helps everything run so much more smoothly in the busy season and *fingers crossed* it may even free up some time for more creative crafty stuff :)

Ooo looks great with everything organised. By the way what are proof of posting forms? are these something from the post office?


Bugs and Fishes said...

Yup, I think they're technically called "certificates of posting"? You fill them in and get them signed & date stamped when you post stuff - vital if you ever have a Paypal claim, lost package or other situ in which you need to prove you posted something :)
