Mini-Han! Fantastic!!

Fiberartist4life, that is beautiful! I saw those block houses in an issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and loved them -- but a matchbox.... Amazing! Grin

Thanks.  It was a LOT of work.  I had to construct the outer shell (my daughter Snazzlecraft was my support team on that) then drew the images and hand painted everything.  I ended up cutting styrafoam and the flat sheets of craft foam to support the inside structure.

I have just started doing shrinky dinks and had a blast coming up with those.  Again thank you sincerely.

Sylvanna -  well done on the matchbox!  Did you use paper clay to sculpt the outside?  I love all the goodies you stuffed inside - I think the flamingo stickers are probably my favs too!

I really do love the little house. I am so amazed that you painted it, since it looks almost identical to the one on my wist. I will have to find a great place to showcase it after I get settled in my new place. Smiley

I got so lucky with both of my partners! I think books and music are the only things (besides crafting, of course) that keep me sane in this word, and I got a little representation of them both in this swap!
Here's what I got in the mail today from snazzlecraft (I seriously think my BF is going to try to steal it from me tonight when he sees it):
The outside


Why, yes, the top does open up


Group shot of everything she stuffed in the drawer


Here's a closeup of the <3 Dolly Parton <3 album sleeve she made for me


Thanks again, snazzlecraft for such an amazing matchbox, it was sooo worth the wait!
*Feel free to post better pictures if you have them- the lighting in my apartment is crap & doesn't do your stuff justice!
