There have been so many awesome matchboxes in this swap it's hard to pick favorites.  The list would be VERY long indeed! 

So true! Every time I log on, I want to comment on each new one, but by the time I think of something to say besides, "WOW!" a million other people have posted comments and another person has posted pictures of an amazing matchbox! I think this has been such a great swap, and I'm not just saying that- everything posted in here has been genuinely awesome!

Wow! While I've been off doing my own thing here in (very soggy) VA, there have been some awesome 'boxes posted. Wulf, love what you sent Killam Creative, KC, love the steampunk man you sent Wulf. And the skelly hands holding the maracas? Looove them. I can go on and on about how cool every single one is, but I'll just say this matchbox swap was full of wonderfulness.  Cheesy

I received my boxes from my two lovely partners! The first is from BoyceMachine:


Please excuse the poor image quality. My camera crapped out and I have to use the one on my computer.

And then from Keyzmasta:


Thank you so much for my boxes!

I finally was able to open my package from my great partner fibreartist4lyfe! It is so awesome and based on something straight from my etsy faves. I'm pretty sure my jaw dropped when I pulled it out of the box. I hope she can post pictures for you guys soon, as I'm in the process of moving out and don't know when I'll get a chance to post pictures. Smiley

I will post pictures tonight.  Relax and get settled in.  Moving is such a pain.
I was hoping for the jaw dropping response! Smiley

My partner haroldlovesmaude is in the middle of moving. I volunteered to post pics for her, if she needed, of the matchbox I sent and she asked if I would.  So here goes.

This matchbox was inspired by her WIST and her love for Kentucky. These first two images are straight from her WIST.

 


She wanted a 3D piece of art to display and this was what I came up with.






Each of the images I chose were hand drawn then painted on the sides of the "block house" I created from card stock.  I chose the banjo because of her love of bluegrass music and stuck with the replication of the images from the houses on her wist.  The houses looked like they were crafted from wood then stamped so I reproduced that feeling as best I could with paint.



This is the drawer filled to the brim.



The contents contained several shrinky dinks that I personalized for her based upon her wists, our messages and some sneaky detective work on my part.  They include a Cardinal (state bird of Ky), a guitar, a LP, music note and I added my squirrelbaitcrafts (from my blog) image. I also made her a mustache because everyone could use a nice mustache.  I also included a camera stamp (she loves photography), and some teensie buttons and then one that looks like a sewing machine. There are some stamps and other bits and bobs.



I lined the drawer with a map of Kentucky as she mentioned she loves maps.

Here is my awesome matchbox from Sylvanna!

She based it on an item from one of my favourite films:





Mini-Han-in-Carbonite! *squeee*


and ALL these goodies.


Close-up of my favourites: beautiful earrings, Sin City stickers, flamingo stickers and teeny bunny (take that teeny fox!)

Thanks Sylvanna! I love it all!

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
