I received my matchbox from echo_brook AGES ago (Saturday, to be precise) and I haven't posted pictures yet.  Sad  But here they are!  Sorry about the delay...

Box tied up in a fun sparkly ribbon:


It has a Celtic knot on it!  And it's in my very favorite colors, blue and silver.  Love!


Everything before unpacking.  (This picture also shows the other side of the box.)


Goodies!


Over two yards of great rainbow ribbon (I love rainbows!  And how on earth did you get it packed so small?), shiny coin charms, the cutest pewter ladybug, fun beads in some of my favorite colors, adorable puffy owl sticker, and my favorite - a quilled flower and snail!

Everything is great, thanks so much echo_brook!

I'm glad you like everything Smiley Thanks for the inspiration with the rainbows! I would have never made a quilled rainbow snail if it was not for having you as a partner in this swap and now I'm slightly addicted to them. haha.

I received from the awesome thelastkodama, hooray! She sent me a fabulous box featuring a ....kodama from Mononoke-hime, heh. Off my wists, but still, very funny! He is so cute and is made of a pretty, swirly fabric and then the kodama is also fabric.



Unfortunately my camera is bad at getting pics of little things, but she stuffed the box full of lots of tiny little things...where do you people get this stuff? I guess I just suck at finding tiny things, because thelastkodama is making my box look like nothing in comparison. My fave items were the teeny-tiny little mouse at the top of the pic, followed closely by the wee origami crane and the beautiful bits of oragami paper.



Thanks again!!!

OMG! That box is so cute, thelastkodama! Great work! And that little mouse is darling! I completely agree with you, zatanna.

Thanks! I'm very happy that you liked the box, zatanna. As for the little things, I admit to being a hoarder of them. Seriously, ever since I can remember I have kept random little things for no good reason, so much so that people have just started giving me their teensy bits (no complaints here). I'm like a freakin' magpie over here.
Also, in case you didn't already know, the mooshed copper is a penny I put on the railroad tracks and the two little silver coins are yen.

I think most Craftsters are magpies in one way or another!  Wink
