LOL Sorry no it's in inches. .5 centimeters would be really hard to fill heheh

 Cheesy I read your first post as centimeters too, and thought "How many things did you get in there?" You would need a matchbox packing machine for that!

I've got your box mostly packed, though there's a bit of room left to fill. I've been blanking on how to decorate it, but suddenly got moving last night. It'll take a few days, though. Thelastkodama's box is finished and pretty much stuffed, though I can see lots of little gaps that can be filled with seed beads, tiny jewels, buttons, etc.

SonjaBoo & OneCrazyMom- I am seding you both hugs. I am so sorry. I love my cats like they are children. I treat them as such, I really understand how losing a furbaby is heartbreaking.

I am still working on a swap that needs to get out this week. Then I am starting on matchboxes. I can't wait. I have the best ideas.

I made a clam shell style box for my swap and think my partner will love the paper, but then realized the box's volume is smaller than a normal matchbox and have no way to get more of the paper. Undecided I think I have a creative way to fix the problem and still send the box, luckily she likes pirates! =)

Some very intriguing hints being dropped, I love it! I've got Wulf's box pretty much filled, just a couple more flat things to put in the bottom, and I've started one of the crafts for hgddm. No decorating yet, but I've got ideas for both!

I'm sure your partner will be delighted with your creation Wink

OK, so after finishing the matchbox for lukenlarry on Monday, I was stuck for ideas for the box for timpani-jax.
But then it hit me yesterday evening and today I spent the whole afternoon at my parents house, as I crafted with a medium i have not worked with in a while and I did not have the supplies. Oh, I did manage to squeeze in a last minute job interview and a trip to a craftstore too (not combined, unfortunately) Grin
Now lets hope my partners will like their stuff !
