packing it up, DIY style

I've been catching up with some friends I haven't seen in a while, since going full time with my business in February. The most common question I get asked is, "what do you do you with your time?" so.....I thought it would be fun to post some pics which will give you a looksee into my process.

I shot these last night, while packing up an etsy order. This shows my practice of packaging, using the three R's: reduce the amount of new materials (the only one being the brown envelope). The stamps come from my dad's collection; reuse: the decorated plastic bag and protective sleeve made from a cereal box; recycle: the envelope and sleeve can be recycled on the recipient's end. I've thus eliminated the need for non-recyclable bubble envelopes and added a personal touch to the packaging.
