I can't believe the size of that crochetted owl, whoa!
And I have to know more about that magnifying glass, did you actually make that?

I'm loving this gallery, everything in here is mind-blowingly incredible guys. Just wow.

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
disclaimer: No frogs were injured in the making of this matchbox!

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!
