Wow, just wow to all the wonderful boxes!
My turn to share! Grin

Suereal missed the sign up for the swap. We've been swap partners in the past, and I just couldn't bear to see her sad, longing-to-be-in-this-swap posts in the thread so I invited her to a personal swap.

I checked with our fearless swap organizer to make sure it was ok to post my pics here- and here they are!







I can't believe she fit so much stuff in there!


and some of my favorites.

We also swapped some other goodies, I'll post that on the personal swap board when I get a second.
Thanks again suereal! You rock- I love everything so much!

I rec'd from Craft Butterfly about a week ago (I think??) and have been too lame to post until now because, well, I guess I am a loser partner LOL.

Anyhow, she sent me the dopest matchbox (yeah I said dopest, that's right.....breakin' it down old skool). Its a friggin' mustachio'd gnome! I love this lil' guy!


I mean, c'mon, how I didn't think of combining my two favorite things, gnomes and mustaches, before now is beyond me. Here are the goodies still in their original stuffed state....


And all the contents dumped out:


I squealed when I saw the teeny tiny stamps made from erasers. I love them! And I adore all the reshaped, colored paperclips; I have always wanted to try it myself but haven't yet....can't wait to find awesome uses for them! Some of my other favorites are the googly eyes, the glittery button, and these two clear buttons that are (hard to describe! LOL) bowl shaped? Concave? Friggin' Awesome!

Thanks Crafty Butterfly. I loved it all. The matchbox is going into my new gnome collection. Also, I have yours nearly done and will be sending out tomorrow!! Yay!!

I received a wonderful matchbox and terrific trinkets from curiousfae today.

When I opened the box (and p.s., she's a GOOD WRAPPER Shocked), this sparkley butterfly appeared inside a beautifully embossed frame:

Ah---so smart to put a thin piece of plastic over the art = keeps sparkles where they look best! She went with my summer and from the sky themes. Butterfly really says them both.

I tugged the satiny ribbon "doorknob" and saw all these treasures packed so nicely in there:

It would take me HOURS to do that! It felt almost criminal to spill everything out. For about 10 SECONDS!
What fantastic little things were in there:

Angel wings, a flower rubber stamp, a tiny glass jar of the tiniest beads, those cute scissors!, a metal frame, a needle threader, safety pins, tiny keys, a GORGEOUS monarch button, a big silver bee pendant, a little silver bee charm, very colorful glass decorations... Wow! Thank you so much, curiousfae. I super love everything--and the sparkly butterfly on the bottom of the box, too.
