Wait a minute, lylacfey, when you say "chase a storm", do you mean in a van with apparatus on the roof, like on Discovery Channel? Other people have the best hobbies! Good luck and be safe.

Yes, kind of like that, lol. I have a team and everything. My Daddy was a chaser and he taught me. I have been chasing since I was five. Most of the time it's kind of boring, seriously. A lot of waiting around. Tonight, most of the storms passed us. I was bummed. Smiley

Swap Photos- My DH took pictures tonight. I just have to upload them. I will be doing that in an hour or so.

Pics uploaded! Smiley

I received the most beautiful matchbox from QueenNinjaMonkey. It's so perfect for me. Thank you so much QNM. I truly do love it.

Here's the front of the box. A beautiful mermaid:



The back of the box is Russian. It meant so much to me.



All the goodies:



I arranged my favorites at the bottom. I had so many favorites it was hard to choose.

I am so sorry about the quality of photos. It was storming here and hard to get any decent lighting.

How are people makeing those tiny books?  My attempts at full sized books aren't that square and even...but I'm not square or even Grin

Everyones matchboxes are so COOL!  There has been such a huge variety...I have sooo many ideas for the next round, and a growing pile of tiny things craftsters might like that would fit in a matchbox.
