Ok, one quiet Sunday of crafting and I'm done with BOTH boxes!  Now I'm going to take some pictures while the light is good, then pack them up to mail.  Cheesy

Just an update...I have finished both boxes, will be definately sending one tomorrow to nilmerg, the other may be a few more days after that (as collecting some kiwi things, got some already that are super neat, one of my delightful partners wanted some kiwi stuff so we are doing some extras outside the swap so will go hunting for fabulous things for that this week hence why one is being sent before the other...
I think I finally got your matchbox idea worked out & I found some good extras for you! It's still a work in progress, so it still probably won't go out until the last minute...  Embarrassed

Yipppeee!! I finished too and it's all packed up and ready to go! I'm guessing the PO will be a bit mad tomorrow, it being tax day, so I'll probably send later in the week.

I started with one of Sunflower's ideas in mind and that kind of morphed into another... and another... Hope you like the final product!!

I finished my very first matchbox!  Hurray!!  It came out reasonably close to the image in my head so I'm pleased.  Of course, I haven't checked the gallery yet and no doubt will be afflicted with self-doubt when I see the awesomeness there.   Wink
Now to stuff it and pack it up.  Monday is a holiday here in Massachusetts but I should be able to mail it on Tuesday.

Know what is going into my boxes and basically how to decorate them, just need the time to accomplish it!   My next days off work are Wed/Thurs, so hopefully then!
