Okay everybody prepared to be amazed.  I received an amazing piece created by Microjivvy.  You know, I had an inkling, based on several clues dropped by Microjivvy, that my matchbox would be a Day of the Dead matchbox.  but this was so far beyond what I could conceive.  I love it.  It is probably the coolest thing I own.

So onto it.
Here she is.  Isn't she lovely?


But wait!  She wants to show you something!


It's incredible!!!  So here are a few details (in linked thumbnails 'cuz I took SOOO many pics)


Everything about her is incredible; her translucent clothing made of ribbon; her ribs wrapping around the shrine; the papel picado; the offerings; the images of Jesus and the Virgin Mary; the itsy wine bottles and candles; the little sugar skulls; even the hinges get me!

And if that wasn't enough she still had a drawer filled to the brim with treasures!




Can you spot my favourite?  Probably not.


This miniscule fox!

Thank you SOOOO much Microjivvy.  I feel so friggin' LUCKY!!!

Wow - there have been so many creative matchboxes in this swap that I would love to have in my collection but, in my humble opinion, the Day of the Dead matchbox is just 'WOW' - the level of detail - teeny tiny detail at that - is so impressive!!!!  Microjivvy, you have raised the bar on matchbox craft!!!!

My jaw dropped literally when I unwrapped her and it stayed that way for at least an hour!
