I received my matchboxes yesterday from both my partners. This was a fun swap and it was great seeing how they were all so creatively decorated. I can see how this could be addictive!
First, I received from isaacmom01. She is an army medic and I am a nurse, which was a neat coincidence. She made my box with a healthcare theme, using a caduceus that would be on a dress uniform. I thought that was so cool. I love it. I did edit my last name off for privacy.
She included a Gandhi quote inside:
Here is the whole shebang...
Did anyone notice my new pet??? He is a teeeeeeeeeny tiiiiiiiny wee little owl and I think I need to make him a teeny tiny tree or nest to roost in.
Here are a few other cool things that really caught my fancy too, a luck pig, and a cow (I have a thing for cows) and a Korean coin from when she was stationed in Korea.
I loved all the thought put into the box and package - thank you very much Catalina, it is beautiful.
I also received from rainfallingonatinroof too, who went with a gardening theme. First off, I was blown away by the packaging. It was sent in a lovely envelope, and then I opened that up to find another pretty handmade envelope - so lovely - it made it feel like my birthday!
Here is the pretty treasure inside and the lovely card that accompanied it. I think I have a quilt with this theme pinned.
Here is the side, very cute
Here is the insides all spread all out - I love the stamps and mini cards, they will be fun to turn into collage pendants.
Here is a wire ring she made me - it is so pretty, comfortable and a perfect fit!
... and a close up of the stamps...
Thank you Kat, I love the entire package, and can't wait to use the treasures inside.
This was such a fun swap! I loved seeing everyone's matchboxes and would love to do another one!
