Shipping Packages

Have you got your packages ready to ship!?! The Postal Service has shipping deadlines posted!

Indy has been helping us get our packages ready! We have been running his little paint soaked feet across postal paper for days! We like to do special things to our packages, and this is a fun way to get Indiana involved in the holiday packaging. We soak a regular sponge in non-toxic, washable finger paint. Then we rub the sponge across Indy's feet, covering his handsome "piggies" in paint. Next we stand him up on the packages to leave the foot impression. Finally we set the package aside to dry before adding the address labels.

It's fun, creative, and special for our friends and family who are far away to get Indy's personalized package!

That's really cute. My mother had done that to a couple of t-shirts and wrote "Our grandkids walk all over us" ...it was so cute!

I don't really have someone to send a package to...but that's one great idea!

What a GREAT idea! Really inventive and cute and sooo personal. If I got one of those I would have to save the paper! (lol)

Even Indy's feet are adorable!

Now that's pretty cute. I think we have everything sent. Mrs. Pirate is very efficient when comes to these things. Her family lives in Baker so we have been shipping stuff every year for the last 20.

Okay, Indy, fair warning: Do not do any bank heists bare-footed when you get older.
