I received my awesome lil box from fabricfriend the other day...

here it is looking all cute wrapped up (the paper is a sewing patter)! Note the lil lady bug? He wanted in on the picture too.  Wink

It's a teeny tiny freakshow in a box!

All the pictures are so neat.

And this bonus pic just makes me laugh! My 2 year old sat and waited patiently while I took pics but could only take it for so long before helping herself to the goodies.

Thanks Fabricfriend! And thanks everyone for a fun swap.  Smiley

Here are a few more detail shots of my box to jessiben:




The arrows on the top spin, and the sides are made of copper plumber's tape, which oddly enough is not tape at all but metal! There are also little rivets in the sides of the drawer.

I recieved a beautiful matchbox from the awesome Sonjaboo:

she combined my love of books, art deco and steampunk into this awsome book.




And the contents:





My favourites (I think) are the bone bead and the arm charm, but I also love the little paper bits and game pieces.

Thanks Sonjaboo! I love my little bookbox!

Hooray! I'm so glad that you like it - my only wish was that I could stuff more goodies in there for you -- the paper clay was not letting me finagle too much with things.

After superbig issues with the post service and after I thought smallholds package might be lost it appeared magically in front of my apartment door today. (Sorry, the pics are a bit dark)

And it is hilarious! The first look:


(open slowly and carefully Warning! Achtung! Contains fresh brains and entrails Keep refrigerated!)

This came out of it:



a close up of the vampire(?) chicken having a brain picknick. How funny is that?!



and that was inside:



(butterfly) buttons, sequins, charms, pom poms, a big embroidered flower....

a close up of the charms



one with pretty glass beads, a vintage metal key ring (probably my favourite) and a funny dutch clog

and this came out of the card and scared the crap out of me



Thank you smallhold for this amusing and wounderfull package. I am so glad it eventually showed up!

Hurray Glamis, I'm really happy it arrived. It was such fun to make a vampire chicklet (with your love for zombies) and arrange a picnic with brains and entrails.  Those tiny fangs with red stained blood on them gave us quite a chuckle here.
And that wind-up butterfly was supposed  to jolt you really awake after reading the card. It gave me a good shock when I saw it in action  Grin
Weaving the basket was the hardest part. Tie-up package rope that wouldn't stay in place.
I'm happy you like it and the contents.

Hugs

I just got my matchbox from Fireartist4Life and I nearly had a heart attack because I was so thrilled!

I told her that I was making a Barbie dollhouse and that I have an orange tabby cat named Firefox. And this is what I got!

Sweet murphy brown, you are kidding right? can't believe human hands made this and sent it by parcel.
Ought to be in a cabinet in a museum or something. Along with the other matchboxes here.

All of the tiny creations in this gallery are just amazing...I love the little vampire chicken  Cheesy

I've received two amazing matchboxes...with a similar theme...you might be able to tell that I love a certain TV Show starring a timelord traveling around in a big blue box  Wink

So the first matchbox I received was from BoyceMachine...look at the tiny matchbox Tardis (from Doctor Who of course  Cheesy )



Then inside was a charm bracelet and some charms...love them! (especially the pink flower, so pretty!)



Thank you BoyceMachine, it's such a lovely little box, and I love the fact that you spent some time studying a police box in Glasgow to get inspiration!  Cheesy

My second box was from Ralph...and it's another Tardis...which totally made my week (seriously, I can never have too many Doctor Who related items  Cheesy

Here's the outside...



And then inside was a drawing of the 10th Doctor  Smiley



Then all the goodies inside! Thank you so much Ralph, I had so much fun sorting through all of these...I love my Tardis necklace and all of the charms Smiley



Thanks again to both of you...this has been such a fun swap to craft for.

I also just wanted to share this...my mini 11th Doctor checking out his new modes of transportation  Cheesy
