I rec'v the most awesome matchbox from meowari about a week ago (?) and, as has been the pattern lately with me, am late on posting the pics.

The most ironic thing about this matchbox to me is that I was literally thinking to myself (as I was opening this package), "I never get any Day of the Dead stuff anymore in swaps. I need to add more to my wists. I should find a Day of the Dead swap to join...."

And then I opened this!!




Here are all my goodies! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mexican Lotera cards!! Its a new thing to add to my collection that I have been wanting for a while now!


Truly everything is a favorite but these two things I was especially excited about:


Check out the "drawer liner"!! Its so cool!


Thanks soooooo much meowari for the most amazing new addition to my Day of the Dead collection. I hope my pictures do this little piece of art justice....it is so detailed and beautifully painted. I just adore it.

Nice job on the stencil job! It's always nice for me to be reminded, from time to time, that I can reverse stencil and reverse applique....LOL....I always seem to forget my options for ease/speed when crafting  Cheesy

I rec'd from Craft Butterfly about a week ago (I think??) and have been too lame to post until now because, well, I guess I am a loser partner LOL.

Anyhow, she sent me the dopest matchbox (yeah I said dopest, that's right.....breakin' it down old skool). Its a friggin' mustachio'd gnome! I love this lil' guy!


I mean, c'mon, how I didn't think of combining my two favorite things, gnomes and mustaches, before now is beyond me. Here are the goodies still in their original stuffed state....


And all the contents dumped out:


I squealed when I saw the teeny tiny stamps made from erasers. I love them! And I adore all the reshaped, colored paperclips; I have always wanted to try it myself but haven't yet....can't wait to find awesome uses for them! Some of my other favorites are the googly eyes, the glittery button, and these two clear buttons that are (hard to describe! LOL) bowl shaped? Concave? Friggin' Awesome!

Thanks Crafty Butterfly. I loved it all. The matchbox is going into my new gnome collection. Also, I have yours nearly done and will be sending out tomorrow!! Yay!!

Also, I ADORE the monster matchbox! I mean, are you kidding me!? That thing looks like a sculpture and something I would pay money for!! It's really amazing.

Okay so I should have soo posted this like a week ago when I got this amazing package. But I am a loser I guess and didn't get to it until now. I was SO BLOWN AWAY but not only the quantity of "things" contained in the box but also just the overall crafty cleverness that came out of my partner, miss lindyv321. Okay well this will be an overload of pictures but its quite necessary in order to get all the goodies their fair share in the spotlight.  Grin

A mushroom tube filled with some awesome ephemera and other tiny, adorable charms and such. The drawing was made by her daughter and made me LOL for real. Its going to be displayed with all my gnome stuff Smiley


A GNOME!! I LOVE this guy! He was filled with all kinds of fun things. And behind him? Another drawing!! But this time, from her son (who incidentally has the same name as my son!). I am not sure why the gnome in the drawing is saying "DORF!" or what it even means but it made me LOL for real the first time I read it and every time since. It's just too cute!


Oh wait I am not done yet....Not only was there two tubes of awesomeness.....but a third as well!!! I am not sure yet, but I think this might be the winner for my favorite. I just love how sparkly and awesome it is! Its super girly and just friggin' fantastic! It was filled with all kinds of beads!!


And a wish bracelet was in the box as well. The backside of the tag says something about "make a wish, tie on the bracelet, where it till it falls off and when it does, your wish will come true". I think I got that right, LOL. I am running off memory atm. Anyhow, its just a simple yet super lovely little thing and I am ready to put it on, like yesterday, but I am trying to think of a good wish still Wink


Here is a picture of all my absolute, squeal-worthy favorites (although that is a hard task since truly there is not a single thing I didn't LOVE!!): The sugar skull fabric scrap was unexpected and awesome. I am thinking about putting it into an embroidery hoop and hanging it on my wall.


Thanks so much lindyv321!! I am in awe of this package! You set the bar high for me....I hope I can please you as much as you did me!

I rec'd, from the amazingly talented PosiTori, the most awesome package ever. And, because I am the dorky loser that I am......I haven't posted these goodies for this group even though I have had my stuff for a week! Since I haven't been blond for many years, I will have to use my next go-to excuse and blame this on my ADD. Sorry PosiTori, I am having a douche-tacular month.

Anywho, I opted to go for the everything I received all-in-one group shot because, frankly, the stress I have been under for the past couple of months has caused me to break out like a teenager and I refuse to model anything that will be photographically documented. With that said, here are the goods:



Okay, so I will go around clockwise, starting with the mustache art in the upper left corner.

Um what can I say other than AMAZING! It took all of two seconds out of the box and I was running around the house looking for the first available empty wall space with a nail already in place. I found one within seconds and the art has been there ever since. Smiley

Next is the "tenta-kitty", as PosiTori has so aptly named this little creature. When I was stalking her I saw that she makes and sells these little cuties on Etsy and I added to my wists hoping, secretly, that she would take notice of that fact and send me one....TeeHeeHee. And bonus! I got one!! The funniest thing was that I was showing it to my mom and couldn't remember what it was called....the word tenta-kitty escaped me...all I could come up with was octo-pussy. LMAO. So my mom and I have now decided to call this creature OctoPussy instead of TentaKitty LMAO.

Moving forward, mustache glasses! I adore these and they are going to be well loved by their new owner (me!). I have decided after rec'ving all these mustache goodies that I am officially going to start collecting mustache things. Yay!!

The soft, cozy red hat is a gnome hat! It fits perfectly, looks hilariously ridiculous on me (which is totally what appeals to me) and I have been finding an excuse to put it on at least once a day for the past week. Lucky for me that I live in Northern Indiana because this puppy will get used for the majority of three seasons!

Ah, the "wristlet" as I call it. The perfect little purse for those girls-night-out trips to the bar or dinner or really any place where my normal day, clunky, oversized purse just won't do. It's the most beautiful colors and in Amy Butler fabric. I adore it Tongue

And the last two items are a pair of (knitted? crocheted?) pink and black slippers from my wists. They are a perfect fit and look like cutesy lil' Mary Jane flats when they are on. Oh and cowl! I have also found an excuse to wear this every day since I got it. I looks great with my coat and the buttons are these awesome hand-carved-and-stained-wood looking buttons....very Nordic, which I love.

Gosh everything is made so beautifully and with such precision and care. You are a talented lady, Miss PosiTori. I hope I don't disappoint with my package that is nearly complete now. You were a great partner!!

Oh and just for fun, I shot a pic of my mustache art with my tiny mustachio'd Domo (got him out of a gumball machine a few weeks ago!!):

Love the light saber earrings and that amazingly detailed Boba Fett hair clip. Awesome stuff!
