First, some organization: I've tried going off memory to make sure that everything I want to go into packages actually gets in there. I fail every time. - luckily, the item that usually gets left out is the invoice (annoying, but not critical). I think it's because I don't ship a high volume of stuff, so I haven't developed habits from constant repetition. I finally broke down and admitted I needed a system, so I made myself a checklist.

Now you have a checklist too!
The "Linky Love" packet, for those of you who are wondering, is a little envelope of goodies and business cards from shops I buy from, work with and love. Cross promotion between shops is a FABULOUS idea, but don't just throw your friends' cards in the package, tell your customer why you are sending them. The wording on my note goes something like this:
There you go, two treats and no tricks! Happy Halloween, everyone!
