CamOovas, glad you liked your box. I was going for the Irish, trees and flowerless plants you have listed in your profile 'likes'. Kind of hard to steer away from the flowery stuff as everything I looked at seemed to have flowers on it!  Cheesy

You did good, I hope you like yours!  Those little leafy trinkets are going to end up glued all over the walls of a little house I am working on Smiley

Wow. I am completely embarrassed to post pictures because carinafox did an incredible job with my science theme and I look like a dork, but truly amazing. I don't think I realized how much I would enjoy the matchboxes I received!



The draw pulled out to reveal quite a few things including:



Thank you!!

jmiller614 - WOW - what a technical laboratory was created for you - I don't like biology - that whole cut up the frog thing, but this lab table is awesome - love the little corked beakers - very clever way to send beads!!!  There are some beads in there, aren't there?  Wink

I am sooo glad you like it Smiley Though, I did totally forget to send the flask that I also filled up with chemical stuffs Wink See how technical I am? LOL! I just hope you like it as much as I like my little sword that you made for me!

I hope nobody minds that I am going to post some more pics here Smiley Her themes were science and sports... I was afraid when I read the themes.. but, after 2 other attempts.. I came up with this idea Smiley













I wrapped it all up in a ton of fluffy  eyelash yarn Smiley

lol nah.. just got some white paper and used my bright as daylight kitchen lights and hoped for the best lol! Craftster makes the pics kind of grainy.. here's a cropped pic on froggy


I was hoping for closer ups! What is the little thingie on the inside side of the sink? I just love the guts, they are so teensy weensy and incredible, just amazing detail.
The "sink" is part of a charm I lucked out on.. I kept part of the finding on it to look like a plug Wink It came from a pack of 3 "Industrial Chic" charm set.. an accent hung in front of the tub part and the whole thing hung vertically. Though, in my crafting fog.. I totally forgot the knobs to turn on the sink.. but I did remember bubbles LOL!

wow.. should not have magnified it THAT much! lol look at my fingerprints Tongue and my work is totally not without a ton of flaws lol!

wow it looks great and you cant really see the finger prints. If they bother you in the future use a cotton swap and alcohol and you can get rid of them before baking.

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!







It's so epic. My cat even has the belly like her lovely clay kitty does! (Oh, and he loves playing with beads, so he's been going at it like crazy since when I opened it, some of the beads fell on the floo). I love it so very, very much! My favorite of the goodies inside were the little Reniassance pictures because they fit the theme of my dollhouse living room perfectly as wall photos!

Thank you so much Fibreartist4Life!
