Tho I managed to miss the sign up, teachart asked me if I wanted to swap anyway.  Said yes of course. And thelastkodama said we could post here.  I finally got my package from teachart, so here is said photo.


OCTOLADY!!!  Her eyes are tiny bits of mirror.  And it was stuffed with all kinds of itty bitty coolness.  From the tiny plastic girl (who Octolady keeps trying to eat), to death in the boat (like jack in the box?), everything is just perfect for me. 

Thanks a bunch teachart...and thelastkodama for letting us play along Grin

oo and here is a link to the whole cool package she sent...

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Um, a Charon charm? It's not surprising that you like it, Susi, only that you don't already have one and that somebody else did! Inserting mirrored eyes into those doll heads is absolutely diabolical. That goes on my to-do list for sure.

I wanted to post photos of the boxes from my wonderfully patient partners- I received a while ago, but couldn't post pix and didn't get my boxes to them on time.  Thank you - pretty hate machine and teachart!!!  They both are wonderful boxes filled with personal loves of mine.... on to the pix:

from teachart: outside of the box with contents:


back of the box- great art nouveau print!


contents:


my favorite is the TINY LITTLE matches from Amsterdam, tiny little old pins, and foreign stamps!  What wonderful treasures!! Thank you!

And for some reason my photos from prettyhatemachine haven't come through, so I am going to try to download them and post later...I'm sorry!!

Here is the beautiful box I received from Amaryllisroze:

I really love that shade of blue/teal. It is close to the top of my list of favourite colours:)
When I opened the package I was surprised at the weight but I found out why it was so heavy.
ALL the goodies inside were metal! Lots of great stuff:

It is hard to say which were my favourites but some definite highlights are the roses, the "Family" clip and the watch face/gears.
Thanks so much!

I'm glad you like it. Even though most of my stuff is based in paper, anything I have small enough to go in a matchbox is metal!

Unfortunately my partner has gone MIA. Luckily I snapped two quick pictures before I mailed off her matchbox a month ago and I finally, FINALLY got them off my camera tonight! Had to buy a new card reader because our house ate the old one. My little matchbox feels so humble next to all the awesome boxes that have already been posted.


I used a cute bird patterned scrapbook paper to create the matchbox base. My partner is in to nature stuff and bird houses so that is the theme I went with. The birdhouse is cut from cloth I dyed with Easter egg dye. I added some needlepoint detail to give the birdhouse a bit more interest.


I don't have a pic of all the items laid out, just the drawer already stuffed. Inside the drawer were a handmade butterfly pendant, an opalescent heart stone, a mini wheelbarrow, some beads, some buttons, a scrabble tile, and a red jewel pendant among other things.
