I have come up with an idea that is creeping me out, so I must be on the right track Grin
Okay, now that creeps me out! Cheesy

In the last matchbox swap, wasn't there actually one that was about the size of a milk carton? One other thing to avoid, which I learned last time, is don't completely cover your entire matchbox with chunks of metal. It increases the postage costs enormously!

I would have loved to join but i really couldn't handle much right now. I just now had time for internets for the first time in days, so probably a good thing i wasn't able to sign up. I can't wait to see the awesome stuff made though!

It IS hard! I think we'll all probably struggle with the size a bit, but we'll have a full month to figure it out. I know we can do it!!

OH!!! I like that last idea.  I had not thought about the matchbox being up right!  I don't think that will work for the idea I have, but totally filing that under Think About This Next Time

EDIT:  There are a ton of matchbox photos here.

Not necessarily wicked, but lots of ideas Grin

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

Those are some great inspiration photos!

I got what I think is a good start today. I'm trying something new, so I won't know if it's a good start until I see the end result.  Cheesy

My brain has come up with an awesome idea - now we will see if my hands can translate that information.
